Patchouli ( Pogostemon patchouli )

        Pogostemon patchouli ( or just patchouli) is a plant with great pharmacological significance. The essential oils are prized and obtainable through steam distillation. Of course a tincture or tea can also be made, and each have their own unique properties. The leaves can be harvested several times throughout the growing season.

It's a very popular ingredient in incense throughout Asia. It's also said to be a powerful antidote for venomous snakebites. In ancient Chinese medicine it's used to treat headaches, colds, nausea, and abdominal pain. These medicinal properties are induced by the phytochemicals made by the plant. Phytochemistry is a branch of chemistry that seeks to understand the medicinal chemicals that plants create. They use the suns energy, and the earths water and air, along with other biological resources to perfect these highly sophisticated organic compounds.

Patchouli is used in modern perfumes, scented industrial products like paper towels, detergents, and even air fresheners. This is because the herb produces three valuable constituents known as Germacrene-B, Patchoulol, and orpatchoulenol. So to all of the haters out there who think herbal medicine is a joke, you're wrong. We have science to confirm that there is something miraculous going on here.

The more you do the research, the more obvious it becomes that nature is the most complex pharmacy on the planet. These plants have spent billions of years learning, evolving, and perfecting these fascinating compounds. Big pharmaceutical companies know this too, and take compounds from plants, alter them and then patent them for profit. I wonder why the mainstream media isn't covering this story? That's ok though, that's what I'm here for.
