    Love the smell of this dark oil- quite a bit stronger than some other patchouli oils I’ve smelt. Love all the oils by AWO but this one is a new favourite

    My all-time fave essential oil. Awesome that AWO provides different sizes to order. The packaging ensured the item was received in one piece during transit as well as being environmentally friendly.

    I had no idea there was a light and dark patchouli. I bought the dark patchouli to try, and the light doesn't give me enough of a smell. I will be buying this again and recommending to my family and friends

    Dark patchouli oil

    Posted by Ann Dickson - Elliott on 18th Apr 2021

    I love, love, love it. My children and grandchildren know me for my patchouli. The girls use mine all the time so I bought them their own. And the packaging is fully recyclable. It would be great if we could return the bottles for reuse.
