More Information About Patchouli Soap

Patchouli is an herb, a fragrant herb with egg-shaped leaves and square stems. When the scent is added to a soap, Patchouli Soaps are often described as sweet, spicy, and woodsy all at the same time. Other words used to describe Patchouli soap include pungent, mossy, and musty. Patchouli is often used as a low note in perfumes and aromatherapy blends, anchoring the other scents, and mixing or blending to enhance the scents with which it is combined in soap

Growing Patchouli for Soap

Patchouli can grow 2 to 3 feet in height. The leaves of the Patchouli herb give off the characteristic Patchouli scent when rubbed. Patchouli does bloom, with white colored flowers tinged with purple. If Patchouli is being grown for the purpose of making Patchouli Soap, it can be cut 2 to 3 times a year, providing 2 to 3 crops that can be dried for later use.

Natural Patchouli Soap - Patchouli Essential Oil Soap

If Patchouli is going to be distilled for its oil and used in soap, it is best to use oil grown in Patchouli plantations of Indonesia and India. Neither American nor European grown Patchouli is known as having a great scent. Patchouli is native to tropical Asia and is grown in India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Burma, India, and countries in South America.

Patchouli essential oil is a noticeably thick oil, very viscous, with amber-brown tones to its color, which explains why Patchouli Soap is often some shade of brown. It contains coerulein, a bright blue compound found in matricaria, wormwood and other oils. Patchouli fragrance is thought to improve or mellow with age, and Patchouli Soap will do the same thing.

You can also use Patchouli to sharpen your focus and improve your concentration. Some believe use of patchouli can provide insight, explaining the use of patchouli in soap, incense and oils for many centuries.
