Patchouli is considered a “cash crop”, farmers grow more when the price goes up and change their crops when the supply is high and market price comes down again (this is a similar pricing pattern to Lemongrass). Generally, we are able to balance this out as we know the patterns with the oil.

Since the tsunami in 2004 when the crops were destroyed the amount of good Patchouli oil in the market has become more and more limited. This was intensified with further failure of crops, which lead to a complete shortage of material, and the prices sky-rocketed. With new crops finally making their way into the market, the prices are starting to ease allowing us to offer you these reductions.
