this has a deep woods smell, use it as a perfume and it will keep insects away as well. Love to use this when going to outside functions.

Lovely musk scent
Very luxurious! I use this in my homemade skin care blends and love the faint musk smell it leaves behind. I love that Swanson's carries this in the larger size because it's one of the essential oils I love using as a base note.

Very Useful Essential Oil
If you are looking for the most useful of essential oils, you found it. Furthermore, this particular brand produces a very high quality patchouli oil. If you are experienced in purchasing patchouli essential oils, you will notice a difference between brands, most likely due to the fermentation process, and distillation of the essential oil. Patchouli, for those who still consider it a product intended to assist hippies in masking a particular odor, might want to reconsider. Patchouli is used as a smoky, deep, earthy, base for many famous fragrances. It only takes a minimal amount of research to discover the possibilities. Add a small amount to a castile soap-based, all-purpose cleaner and fragrance your whole house. Place a few drops into a lavender foam bath and let your worries dissolve. Or, if you are daring, take a couple drops of pure essential oil with some jojoba and ylang ylang essential oil, and people will be asking you what is that intoxicating scent you are wearing. In addition, it's a unisex fragrance- especially good for the guys, but wonderful for women with the right floral compliment. What I love about patchouli essential oil, is that is is complimentary to so many other fragrances and essential oils- all the citrus oils, lavender, basil, marjoram, parsley, lemongrass, peppermint, vetiver, etc. This product is a true bargain, and a treasure. Indulge yourself.

Best Essence Oil
This is my second time to order the Patchouli and I went for the larger size. Better value. I don't know if it was just my bottle or if all the larger bottles comes this way, but it didn't have a dripper valve in the bottle. Not a problem, I transfered the oil by using a medicine dropper into the medicine bottle. Works much better.
Smaller bottles have the plastic drip valve. This would not prevent me from purchasing another large bottle. Excellent product.
