Essential Oil Travel Pouch

The pouch is a gift for xmas along with some oils. It is the perfect size for taking with you and gives plenty of room for 10 oils. The service from Moonhaven was excellent. I ordered online and received a phone call the next day as the colour I had ordered was unavailable. I was happy with a different colour and my parcel arrived the next day. Incredible!!! Thank you

Wonderful products

I have been using their soaps, oils & bath bombs for years. I started using the skin care products, I just love them. Deliveries are always very fast, such great service.

Love love love the herbal ointment

I love this ointment and always have it in my home plus I give it to my family members too! Please MoonHaven, always make it!

Dog soap

Pure, Unadulterated Essential Oils

Patchouli Oil

Regular price $23.95 Sale

Botanical Name: Pogostemon cablin

Plant Part: Leaves

Extraction Method: Steam distilled

Origin: Indonesia (there was a general  failure of patchouli crops this year and so prices have risen substantially)

Description: Patchouli is a very fragrant herb with soft oval leaves and square stems. It grows from 2 to 3 feet in height
Colour: Deep Golden Brown to Red
Common Uses: Recognized by aromatherapists as being effective for combating nervous disorders, helping with dandruff, sores, acne, skin irritations and acne. Properties include use as an antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, anti-emetic, antimicrobal, antiphlogistic, antiseptic, antitoxic, antiviral, aphrodisiac, astringent, bactericidal, carminative, deodorant, digestive, diuretic, febrifuge, fungicidal, nerving, prophylactic, stimulating and tonic agent.

Patchouli is an excellent fixative that can help ground other lighter oils.

Patchouli improves with age, and that the aged product is definitely preferred over freshly harvested. In fact Leonie has some aged patchouli in her personal supplies that is so old it is thick and resinous..with a superb aroma.  Needless to say this precious aged oil is used sparingly. So why not put some patchouli aside and let it age gracefully...keep it in a dark box in a cool, dry area and revisit it in 5, 10 or even 20 years time.  Your nose will appreciate the quality.
Consistency: Medium to Thick
Note: Base
Aroma Strength: Medium
Blends well with: All the Citrus oils, Sandalwood, Bergamot, Cedarwood, Clary Sage, Lavender, all the wood oils.
Aromatic Scent: Warm, earthy aroma with fresh fruit - like tones.

 

History: One interesting point is that patchouli was used to scent fabric and cloth sent form India to Europe and so the scent was associated with the Far East.  Another is that in the Flower Power era patchouli was used to hide the scent of Marijuana...quite unsuccessfully I am told by reliable sources...as where there was a whiff of patchouli in the air then our officers of law and order would immediately look for drug use!

A new staple for my wife's essential oil toolkit

She had never tried Patchouli before, but was delighted with how it blends with Ylang Ylang to create a unique scent that is exotic but not overpowering. The order was processed quickly, thank you. Keep up the great work, MoonHaven team!

Patchouli Perfume.

Bought the patchouli perfume yesterday and love it. Reminds me of the heady 70ies in Fremantle.

Patchouli oil

I've always loved the heady, exotic scent of patchouli and bought some to use as a personal fragrance. It's definitely a slow-burn type of essential oil for this use: as the day goes on, the scent develops more and more on the skin. Don't know if I could actually put some aside like a good wine to revisit in several years - gotta use it now!
