Suggestive of dehydrated soil and plant roots, earthy Patchouli rose from obscurity to a bold representative of free love and rebellion.
During the 1960s, the Beatles trekked to northern India to take part in an advanced Transcendental Meditation training course, which spurred the “Year of the Guru” in 1968 declared by Life Magazine. Rebellious American youth, frustrated with their Lysol sanitized suburban upbringing followed suit, embarking on backpacking trips from Delhi to Kathmandu in search of meaning, texture, life, and sensory stimulation.
It was in India that they encountered Patchouli oil, long used throughout India for its medicinal properties. The small amber colored nameless vials of Patchouli oil transformed into a rebellion against the suburban bourgeoisie, and baptism into earthy smells that could easily be passed between men and women.

"Our mission at Herb & Root is to encourage the timeless experience of adorning oneself with fragrance.
Perfume has its own intimate way of evoking emotions and invading the psyche. Carrying the souls of its plant notes, perfume is somehow physical and metaphysical at the same time. It makes us feel confident, vibrant, serene, cared for, connected to the earth.
Today, the pace of modern life has broken that connection. In the frenzied pursuit of living, we forget to let our minds wander, to embrace the world around us. We surround ourselves with visible beauty but we often neglect our noses, yearning to be connected to nature"
