The Patchouli bush can reach up to two to three feet in height and has pale pink flowers. The patchouli plant also produces green leaves that are jagged along their edges. The patchouli essential oil however is extracted through steam distillation of these leaves. The Patchouli Oil at Zongle Therapeutics is steam distilled from the young Pogosteman cablin species. The top 3 to 4 pairs of Patchouli plant leaves are said to yield essential oils with the strongest aroma.
