Scientific name of Patchouli is Pogostemon patchouli (Syn. Pogostemon cablin). Patchouli belongs to mint family i.e. Labiatae or Lamiaceae. Patchouli is a tropical, perennial aromatic herb which is mainly grown for its aromatic leaves. Patchouli oil, a highly fragrant essential oil, is extracted from its dried herbage. Patchouli is also known as Stink Weed or Pucha Pot (Putcha-Pat). There are several species of patchouli under cultivation such as Pogostemon patchouli, Pogostemon commosum, Pogostemon hortensis, Pogostemon heyneasus and Pogostemon plectranthoides. However, Pogostemon patchouli yields the highest quality patchouli oil and is, therefore, widely cultivated for commercial purposes.

<b>"One of the most valuable contributions yet made to our knowledge of the state of the South." - Saturday Review</b><br /><br />Frances Butler Leigh (1838-1910) was the daughter of Pierce Mease Butler and famous English actress Frances Anne "Fanny" Kemble, who owned cotton, tobacco and rice plantations on Butler Island, among the largest in Georgia, just south of Darien, Georgia, and the hundreds of slaves who worked them.<br /><br />The family visited Georgia during the winter of 1838–39, where they lived at the plantations at Butler and St. Simons islands, in conditions primitive compared to their house in Philadelphia. Kemble was shocked by the living and working conditions of the slaves and their treatment at the hands of the overseers and managers, which led to her divorcing Pierce.<br /><br />In 1863, Kemble published "Journal of a Residence on a Georgian Plantation in 1838-1839," which included her observations of slavery and life on her husband's Southern plantation in the winter of 1838–39.<br /><br />After the divorce Frances Butler Leigh sided with her father on the plantations and later inherited them after the Civil War. Based on her experience, Leigh published "Ten Years on a Georgian Plantation since the War (1883)," as a rebuttal to her mother's account. <br /><br />Leigh notes that after the Civil War "the whole country had of course undergone a complete revolution… our slaves had been freed; the white population was conquered, ruined, and disheartened, unable for the moment to see anything but ruin before as well as behind, too wedded to the fancied prosperity of the old system to believe in any possible success under the new."<br /><br />After the war the plantation fields had not been cultivated in four years and the former slaves agreed to work, but they would now have to be paid.<br /><br />Regarding the productivity of hired help, Leigh writes critically: <br />"The prospect of getting in the crop did not grow more promising as time went on. The negroes talked a great deal about their desire and intention to work for us, but their idea of work, unaided by the stern law of necessity, is very vague, some of them working only half a day and some even less. I don't think one does a really honest full day's work, and so of course not half the necessary amount is done and I am afraid never will be again, and so our properties will soon be utterly worthless, for no crop can be raised by such labour as this, and no negro will work if he can help it, and is quite satisfied just to scrape along doing an odd job here and there to earn money enough to buy a little food."<br /><br />Regarding the wages to be paid, Leigh relates: <br /><br />"On Wednesday, when my father returned, he reported that he had found the negroes all on the place, not only those who were there five years ago, but many who were sold three years before that. Seven had worked their way back from the up country. They received him very affectionately, and made an agreement with him to work for one half the crop, which agreement it remained to be seen if they would keep."<br /><br />The former slaves were given "in the meantime necessary food, clothing, and money for their present wants (as they have not a penny) which is to be deducted from whatever is due to them at the end of the year.<br /><br />This we found the best arrangement to make with them, for if we paid them wages, the first five dollars they made would have seemed like so large a sum to them, that they would have imagined their fortunes made and refused to work any more."<br /><br />Leigh hired Irish immigrants to dig and maintain the plantation's irrigation ditches, and described them as "faithful" workers. She also imported English workers, but fired them after two years because they were "troublesome … constantly drunk, and shirked their work so abominably."<br />

<b>"A charming picture of Southern life both in Charleston and in the country before and after the Civil War." - Library Occurrent, 1923<br />"Pringle writes with great spirit." -Springfield Republican, 1923<br /> "Poignantly revealing, the courage and endurance underlying the pleasure loving characteristics of the delicately bred women of the South under stress of conditions spared us of the North stand most fully confessed." -Booklist, 1923</b><br /><br />In her 1922 book "Chronicles of Chicora Wood," Elizabeth W. Allston Pringle (1845-1921) writes recollections of the old South and of plantation life in South Carolina both before and after the Civil War. <br /><br />Her father, who owned a number of plantations and many slaves, was a scientific rice planter whose plantations were models of organization and management. Both her father and her mother were among those who felt the responsibility of owning human beings and who devoted themselves to their training and well-being. <br /><br />The chronicles tell of the author's mother coming as a young woman to her husband's plantations, which were so big that neighbors were few and far away, and of the wisdom and self control she had to learn in her dealings with her slaves. <br /><br />The life of the luxurious days before the war is clearly shown, the privations and suffering of war time which for these people included the experience of Sherman's raid, and the difficulties of readjustment.<br /><br />In describing the moment Sherman's raiders raided the family's plantation, she writes: <br /><br />"One day mamma had just helped us all to a delicious piece of turkey when Phibby rushed in, crying: 'Miss, dey cumin!' Bruno, Jane’s little water-spaniel, began to bark, and she rushed out to the wide roofless porch where he was, threw her arms round his neck and held his throat so tight he couldn’t bark, just as a soldier was about to strike him with a sword. 'Whiskey! We want liquor! Don’t lie; we know you have it! We want whiskey! We want firearms!'"<br /><br />"Whenever they asked me anything I answered with some quick, sharp speech which would intensely amuse any one but the questioner, who generally relapsed into sulky silence…. At last the noises on the highway ceased, and we knew Sherman’s great army had passed on toward the North. We began to breathe freely and feel that we could go to bed at night and sleep."<br /><br />The book offers an intimate look at the fortunes of a wellborn Southern family before, during, and after the Civil War in which plantations and slaves figure heavily, but also with frequent references to life in Charleston, both before and after the war.<br /><br />
