Hi, my name is Stephanie from I'm going to show you how to make a patchouli hard perfume. This can also be called solid perfume. This is essentially a small balm that you will carry in a little tin like this. So, you're going to start off with a little tin. You want to have your patchouli oil as patchouli essential oil. You want your carrier oil. I'm going to use almond and a wax. You can use bees wax. You can use any number of vegetable waxes. I'm going to be using one called candelilla wax and I melted this wax in a double boiler so you can see that it is already melted and what we want to do is take a dropper. You want these measure droppers so you can have the measurements or if you have the really good eye for guessing, you can guess about one third of each. So, I'm going to measure out a milliliter of my wax and add it to my tin. Now, I'm going to do the same with the almond measure out the same amount and mix it together a little bit and lastly, I'm going to add my patchouli and I'm also going to use the same portion and mix that into the oil and wax mixture. I'm going to let this cool and when it's all cool and solid, you will have a patchouli hard perfume or a solid perfume.
