100% Pure Patchouli Essential Oil (Dark)
You may be wondering about the difference between AWO’s Patchouli Essential Oil Dark, and Light Patchouli Essential Oil. For Patchouli Essential Oil Dark the patchouli plant is distilled in cast iron vats, rather than in the stainless steel vats used to make the lighter variety. As a result, dark patchouli oil has a heavier, more pungent aroma, whereas patchouli oil light is paler and clearer. Dark patchouli’s rich, deep fragrance is a heady blend of spicy, earthy, mellow and sweet.
