I infused some olive oil with patchouli leaves. Now I am in the process of straining the oil. I squeeze every last drop of oil out of the cheesecloth with my hands. Now my hands just reek of patchouli! There's no escaping it! The stuff is clinging to me no matter how many times I wash my hands. I like patchouli ok in small doses, but this is too much!!
I'm going to soap with the oil tomorrow. My olive oil/wheat germ oil recipe. I haven't decided on what essential oils to add.
