Historical Data: The leaves of patchouli were placed between Indian cashmere shawls en route to Victorian England, so as to protect the merchandise from moths. In fact, these shawls were not sold in England without the signature smell of dried patchouli leaves. These were used in the East as a part of potpourris and sachets, along with being placed between linen in order to keep bedbugs away. The Indian ink derives its characteristic smell with the mix of patchouli oil and camphor oil.
