It is one of the great mysteries of the universe: Do Hippies smell like Patchouli or does Patchouli smells like Hippies? Anybody that has ever been around either will know what the other smells like, though.
Patchouli is a fragrant herb, with soft, opposite, egg-shaped leaves and square stems, grows from 2 to 3 feet in height, giving out the peculiar, characteristic odour when rubbed. The dried leaves are commonly burned as incense or mixed with other incense blends.
Its use is said to cause loss of appetite and to help with sleep and nervous attacks. The Chinese, Japanese and Arabs believe it to possess prophylactic properties.
We offer organically-grown Patchouli from India.
