Pogostemon cablin / Patchouli
Patchouli is a tropical plant from Southeast Asia with aromatic leaves and stems that are traditionally used to make essential oils. The oils are described as strong and earthy and, for centuries, the aroma has been added to perfumes. Herbalists in Indonesia and China have also incorporated the essential oils into their practice. Because patchouli is not hardy to our cold winters, keep it in a container, leaving it in a sunny corner of your porch and bring it inside for the winter. Make sure the soil doesn’t dry out.
