Patchouli (Pogostemon patchouli)
Patchouli comes from India, where it is known as puchaput. Patchouli belongs to the labiate family, but the oil is unlike other labiate oils. Patchouli oil has the unusual property of improving in odour with age. It is a deep reddish-brown, and is exactly the same colour and consistency as oils of benzoin and myrrh.
