History of Patchouli
Patchouli is often associated with the humid, exotic locales of India, where the plant is a botanical native, and this iteration of the oil captures the mystique of traveling through the vast subcontinent, its exotic fragrance on the breeze. Of course, patchouli is also closely linked to hippie counterculture and particularly pungent burning incense.
