How To Use Patchouli Oil As Perfume
The oil's aroma is also believed to have spiritual and psychological benefits, helping to alleviate anxiety and depression while promoting feelings of happiness and relaxation.
1. Dilute patchouli oil in a carrier oil
Patchouli oil has a very strong scent and can be quite overpowering if applied directly to the skin. Applying essential oil to the skin undiluted can cause skin irritation.
To make it more suitable for use as a perfume, it’s best to dilute it in a carrier oil. Choose a carrier oil like jojoba oil, almond oil, and grapeseed oil, as they are unscented and have a long shelf-life.
When diluting patchouli oil, use a ratio of 1 part patchouli oil to 8 parts carrier oil. This will give you a pleasant, subtle scent that won’t be too overbearing.
2. Apply the mixture to your wrists and neck
After you've mixed the patchouli oil and carrier oil together, you can now apply it to your skin. Using your fingertips, apply the mixture to your wrists and neck. The wrists are a great place for a dab of patchouli oil since it's close to the nose, you can easily catch a whiff of the scent when you move your hands.
The neck is also a great spot as the heat radiating from your body can help the scent to intensify. Make sure to rub the mixture on your skin in a gentle circular motion. This will help to ensure that the mixture evenly coats your skin.
3. Reapply throughout the day as needed
To get the most out of your patchouli oil perfume, you should reapply it throughout the day as needed. The scent of patchouli oil is strong and long-lasting, so it’s important to use it sparingly.
A few drops in the morning should be enough to last you the day, but you may want to reapply in the afternoon or evening if you’ve been in a particularly smelly environment. You can also reapply your patchouli oil if you want a stronger scent. Just remember to use it sparingly, as too much patchouli oil can be overpowering.
4. Choose a patchouli essential oil that is pure
When choosing a patchouli essential oil, it is important to make sure it is pure, as these are the most natural and beneficial for use as a perfume. It will give you the best results and the most benefit in terms of aromatherapy.
Be sure to read the label, as some oils may be diluted or mixed with other oils.
5. Mix the patchouli oil with other essential oils for a unique scent
Mixing patchouli oil with other essential oils is a great way to create a unique scent. To do this, you'll want to start with a base oil. Base oils are typically unscented and can include sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, or even coconut oil.
Once you have your base oil, add a few drops of other essential oils to it, such as lavender, geranium, or rose. Then, add your patchouli oil, starting with just a few drops and adding more if needed.
Finally, mix everything together, and you'll have a beautiful and unique scent that's sure to become your signature fragrance.
