Extraction of Essential Patchouli Oil

The Patchouli plant is a rugged herb that belongs to the lip flower family, just like lavender and mint species. It is an aromatic, perennial plant that can grow up to 90 cm in height. The Pogostemon Cablin (Patchouli plant) has a sturdy, hairy stem, large, fragrant, fuzzy leaves and blooming tips of white-violet flowers in summer.

The plant cannot tolerate full sun. That is why in tropical Asian countries such as Indonesia, the plant is often planted on teak plantations. In addition to Indonesia, Patchouli is a native plant from India and the Philippines. Today, the Patchouli plant is also cultivated in China, Malaysia and South Africa.

Water vapor distillation

We extract our Patchouli essential oil by means of water vapor distillation from the dried leaves of the Pogostemon Cablin plant from Indonesia. Patchouli oil has a dark orange to dark brown color. 1 liter of essential Patchouli oil requires 30 to 35 kilograms of dried Patchouli leaves from the Pogostemon Cablin plant. The essential oil is extracted by steam distillation.
