For a soothing skin treatment, a refreshing scent, or a perfume fitting for the “boho” crowd, crunchy moms, and even old hippiestry our Patchouli Salve Recipe.


1 gram of beeswax
5-6 grams of oil (olive, coconut, or an infusion)
1 cup Calendula infusion
1/2 oz beeswax (pastilles, shaved)
Patchouli of your choice


Melt the 1 gram of beeswax in a double boiler/water bath.

Once the beeswax is melted, add the 5-6 grams of oil. This ratio may vary depending on your oil! This combination seems to make it so that the salve melts easily yet retains its shape.

In a double boiler, melt the pastille beeswax into Calendula (or use olive oil).

Once all is melted, remove and cool off.

Add 15 drops of Patchouli.

Pour into tins or jars.

And there you have your Patchouli salve! We hope you enjoyed playing with Patchouli.
