    Pogostemon cablin


    The smell of the Patchouli plant is both exotic and familiar. Herb gardening means more than just looks, and we encourage you to plant herb plants we have grown for their aromatic value.

    This aromatic herb emits the definitive perfume of the Orient and India in particular. It is widely used in perfumes, oils and soaps and its leaves make an excellent potpourri. Patchouli made a resurgence in the 1960's as a popular oils used by Hippies to condition their skin and hair. Also used as an aphrodisiac, Patchouli is often found in many Aromatherapy products and incenses.

    Medically, Patchouli is antibacterial and anti fungal. Used for ages in the Far East, Patchouli was employed to treat nausea, headaches, colds and even venomous snake bites. Patchouli has also been known as a skin toner and to be effective in treating acne and eczema.

    The plant's anti fungal properties also render it a natural insecticide and makes a great preventative plant for your garden. Ancient Chinese silk traders used to pack Patchouli leaves within the folds of their silk cargoes to prevent damage from moths. Try using Patchouli in your drawers and attics instead of toxic mothballs!

    Patchouli plants are a member of the Lamianceae family, which includes Mints, Lavenders and Oreganos. This fragrant plant makes an excellent houseplant. Just pot it up in one of our attractive pots and containers, keep it in filtered light and do not let it dry out. It is an easy plant to grow, and will reward you with lovely white flowers!

    Hazy Daze September 23, 2013
    Reviewer: Anonymous Person from The Golden State, CA United States  
    Oh, the seductive aroma fills the air it engulfs the nose and memories start to flood. The days of college; when there was a glimmer in the eye, the hair was long, we wore our sandals, and we had a plan to change the world!

    Rooted Mystery October 30, 2012
    Reviewer: Benjamin Yarusinski from Havertown, PA United States  
    This plant has grown into a mature potted indoor friend.  Having spent the summer outside, it now sits inside with mysterious aroma emitting from it's corner in the house.  A mysticism surrounds it's branching and continues to envelope me with enthusiasm for our relationship.  I highly recommend purchasing and possibly rooting some of it's branches for a number of patchouli plants in and out of your residing.

    Patchouli October 30, 2012
    Reviewer: Viola Smith from Valliant, OK United States  
    When I first got it I kept it in a pot on the patio for both sun and shade.   It grew to three times it's original size.   Now, it is growing in an east window and smelling delicious.    I wish someone could tell me how to use it in scenting lotions and soaps.  I truly love my Patchouli and I never was a hippy!

    Love this plant! October 30, 2012
    Reviewer: Brenda from Lilburn, GA United States  
    I love having fragance in my landscape and this plant is wonderful. I keep it in a pot beside the sidewalk so every time I walk by I brush up against them.
    Patchouli may do well in the house over the winter when it's in the right location. It likes consistent temperatures, good light, and moderate watering. Mine get about 2' tall and slightly leggy but I place them toward the back of the houseplants inside. Not always the easiest plant indoors, but definitely rewarding! It's also a difficult plant to find and Growers Exchange always has it!
