The word “Patchouli” comes from a Hindustan meaning ‘to scent’, since it was commonly used to scent fabrics and traditional Indian shawls in the 1800’s. Patchouli experienced a revival in popularity in the 1960’s, and became a distinctive recognized aroma that is listed in the Urban Dictionary as “a pungent scented oil usually worn by those who live an alternative or bohemian lifestyle, like artists, musicians, hippies, bikers and punk-rockers.” Patchouli can aid relaxation* and brighten the mood. *
