The traditional dark brown patchouly oil has a pleasant odour and highly demanded in international market. Recently the colour preference has changed from dark brown to a lighter colour. Souch colour can be produced using stainless steel distillation equipment or eliminate the iron ion in the brown oil by chemical means. An experiment using Na-EDTA solution has been carried out.
