100% Pure Patchouli Essential Oil (Light)
Wondering about the difference between Patchouli Essential Oil Light, and Dark Patchouli Essential Oil? With Patchouli Essential Oil Light, the patchouli plant is distilled in stainless steel vats, rather than in the cast iron vats used to make the darker variety. As a result, light patchouli oil is paler and clearer, whereas dark patchouli oil has a heavier, more pungent aroma. AWO’s Patchouli Essential Oil Light’s exotic fragrance is a heady blend of spicy, earthy and musky sweet.
