I have had a love for patchouli since I was a teenager, and it is my signature scent. This one in particular is especially nice because of how strong it is, you don't have to use as much...a little definitely goes a long way! Very good price for the size bottle you get. I can't live without it.

I am a person who uses patchouli oil on my clothing as my signature scent. A tiny drop goes a long way and is very long-lasting. Not everyone loves patchouli, but if you do, this is a GREAT one. Arrived promptly, reasonably priced, and it feels so good to be able to buy Canadian.

I find this essential oil to simply be overpowering in nature...... on its own it made me want to leave the room the diffuser was in to breath neutral air. I am working on tempering it with other essential oils to find a happy medium. I may just not be a fan of this particular scent. Great value for the quantity. A little goes a very long way!!!! One drop is more than enough!!
