Traders once used the leaves of this plant to protect their goods from moths. The cloths for the chosen ones were scented with a scent that became a symbol of wealth and luxury. Gradually, the moth remedy itself became an expensive commodity. Spirits and cosmetics were made on its basis. We are talking about the essential patchouli oil. Patchouli oil is popular in perfumery. Here it is valued as one of the best fixatives for men's perfumes and aftershaves. Patchouli oil is one of the essential oils that, like rose, sandalwood and oud, become more mature with age, that is, develop a fuller and deeper fragrance.

The raw materials used come almost exclusively from biodynamic or from fair trade, biological wild collection (FairWild). However, since not all plants are available in organic quality, the best, tested and carefully selected conventional quality (sélection) is used in this case. Essential oils are highly concentrated and should therefore neither be used for small children nor during pregnancy.
Therefore, they should also: always be dosed sparingly, protected from light, be kept cool and out of the reach of children not come into contact with the eyes, mucous membranes or open flames direct contact with the skin, always be used in a highly diluted form (e.g. in a lotion, cream or oil).
Warning: In case of irritation or chemical burns, first dissolve the essential oil with a neutral vegetable oil, then remove it with a cloth and then wash it off thoroughly with clear water. In case of eye contact, rinse immediately with plenty of running water. If severe reactions, such as dizziness or nausea, occur, consult a doctor immediately or contact the poison control center.
