Patchouli is a subshrub native to India, Malaysia, and Southeast Asia. It has long, upright stems covered with broad, velvety green leaves. It is usually propagated through cuttings.
Its usage history began in 1844, the year a shipment of patchouli arrived in England. It was then mixed into the potpourri blends used to scent the salons of the wealthy. It later became popular in France through the importation of scented shawls from India and Indonesia. In the 1960s and 1970s, patchouli even became a symbol of rebellion and freedom in France.
The name even honors the foliage: Patchouli comes from the Tamil patch which means green and ilai which means leaf.
