Patchouli’s is proud to announce its celebration of 20 years in business on Scenic Highway 30A. For the past 20 years, Patchouli’s has offered highly sought after products from around the corner to around the world. Patchouli’s began as a dream Linda Boswell had to open a soap shop by the beach. In 1992, Boswell moved from California to make her dream a reality, by opening Patchouli’s in Seaside, Florida. Her vision quickly grew into a neighborhood favorite for bath and body decadence. Visitors and locals were enchanted by the fragrances flowing from the open doors of the boutique shop.
