Indonesia is largest producer of patchouli, contributing to over 80% of the world suply
Patchouli is a perennial species that thrives in warm, tropical climates. This makes Indonesia a perfect place to cultivate it. Over the years, the cultivation of Indonesian Patchouli has shifted from Sumatra to Java and of late to Sulawesi, where most of the Patchouli is currently farmed.
Patchouli crops cannot be grown on the same patch of land for very long. There are certain components and nutrents in the soil needed fpr a healty yield whitch get depleted over time. This is why the plantations need to be moved from one place to another. Patchouli adapts itself to awide range of soil conditions. It requires deep, well-drained, fertile, slightly acidic, deep loamy soil, rich in humus and nutrients. the PH of the soil should range from 5.5 to 7.5 for good growth
It takes a long time for the soil to replenish its nutrients to be good enough for optimum quality. Hence, farmers often practice intercropping Patchouli with plants like Cocoa and Palm.
This migration has resulted in oils that have varying alcohol levels, acid values, colour and scent.
We get all our Patchouli Oil from local Indonesian farmers and accumulators who harvest and process the crop through steam distillation to produce a crude form of Patchouli Oil.
