Description of Patchouli Oil Light
Steam distilled from the dried leaves of the Pogostemon Cablin plant, Patchouli Oil Light is one of the most popular ingredients found within the fragrance industry. Patchouli Light is processed to minimize the dark brown color of standard Patchouli Oil, though it still retains a similarly rich and sweet-herbaceous aroma. The odor is adjusted slightly during the process, keeping the core patchouli alcohol component that defines the plant's aroma relatively stable while reducing the heavy, more earthy nuances. Due to its transparent color, the oil can be used in a massive variety of fragrance products, including perfumes, anti-perspirants, lotions, and body creams. It also sees heavy usage within fine fragrance and high-end personal care products.
