Patchouli is a flowering plant in the Lamiaceae family, commonly known as the mint family. The same family rosemary, hyssop, oregano, and lavender come from. The Patchouli plant is a bushy perennial herb, reaching up to one meter in height and bearing small, pink-white flowers.

Although nowadays, patchouli is successfully cultivated throughout regions in Asia, Madagascar, and South America, Indonesia provides over 90% of the global supply.

Patchouli oil has been used in folk medicine in Malaysia and the Philippines for centuries. It was often used to help heal wounds and reduce scar formation. Patchouli oil was also considered an excellent means of repelling insects and treating snake bites.

In the 1800s, its usage against moths by the clothing industry was so widespread that patchouli oil would be considered a true mark of authentic oriental fabric. Back then, it was used to protect silk and other fabrics from insects and damage while luxury shaws and other garments were transported across the world.

Later, in the 1960s, patchouli oil became the image of the counterculture revolution in the USA and Europe alike. Furthermore, occasionally it’s been tagged as ‘the scent of the 60s’ because the essential oil was often worn neat on the skin by the party-loving rebellious youth.

Chanel, Gucci, Givenchy, and Bottega Veneta all have created perfumes using patchouli as a base note. Nevertheless, there is so much more to explore about patchouli essential oil than its exotic and alluring aroma.



Patchouli is considered a great balancer among essential oils. On an emotional level, it is relaxing and has a harmonizing effect on the mind and body. Aromatherapists use it to treat conditions of a weakened immune system.

Patchouli is also known to treat various skin inflammations, such as acne and eczema. It also has anti-fungal, and anti-infective properties. Last but not least, patchouli has shown great potential against bugs. 



The European Bioinformatics Institute has gathered more than 60 research studies that focus on patchouli alcohol (PA). According to those, PA could be a promising therapeutic agent for various chronic human diseases, such as depression, gastric disorder, inflammatory intestinal disorders, some types of cancerand metabolic ailments.

A study from 2013 suggests that patchouli has strong antibacterial activity. As a reference, the study authors used the five most acknowledged antibiotics - benzylpenicillin, sulfadiazine, trimethoprim, rifampicin and ciprofloxacin.

It turned out that all of the 26 compounds present in patchouli oil exhibited antibacterial potential. In particular, pogostone and patchouli alcohol have been proven to be very potent.

According to the World Health Organization, approximately 4% of the world's population lives with depression. A recent study from 2020 concluded that patchouli alcohol, which is a key component in the oil, exhibits promising antidepressant qualities worthy of further development into a drug for the treatment of depression.
