Aura Cacia 100% Pure Essential Oil Patchouli Description
- 100% Pure Essential Oil - Sensualizing
Patchouli (Pogostemon cablin) essential oil has a unique rich, earthy aroma and is popular for its many uses and peaceful, calming attributes. Because the aroma has lasting effects, the oil is an important fixative ingredient in fine perfumes and cosmetics.
Aura Cacia Patchouli Essential Oil is sourced from Southeast Asia, typically Indonesia, where small farmers grow patchouli for a steady and reliable income. After harvesting, the leaves and stems are set out to dry. The essential oil is then obtained by steam distillation of the properly dried plants, giving us the strong, musky aroma we know patchouli to be.
We believe the highest quality essential oils and skincare oils come from plants that are grown where they thrive. We source from over 40 countries to secure the best oils possible. Our source visits allow us to obtain firsthand knowledge of growing practices, harvest cycles, environment, and worker conditions to ensure Aura Cacia’s vision, values and expectations are being met.
Gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC/MS) testing is the primary way to ensure an essential oil is an unadulterated, true botanical. Every batch of Aura Cacia essential oils is GC/MS tested. This product is vegan and cruelty-free.
Aura Cacia® was founded over 40 years ago on pure essential oils and true aromatherapy benefits. We partner with suppliers to source high quality botanicals and rigorously test every batch to ensure purity. We then provide premium products with consumer safety at the forefront. And importantly, Aura Cacia is part of a member owned co-op that puts people and planet ahead of profits.
