My mum liked the Patchouli I had started to wear my dad sort of sniffed as I walked in a room and I remember him asking mum if they had a hippy on there hands and them both laughing.So that was the start of my fashion a Patchouli smelling hippy.As a teenager I would spend my money from my weekend job on Patchouli oil ,Patchouli incense sticks,my favourite shops were the hippie shops in the town we lived in where I bought clothes that I saved up for.I used to put Patchouli in the bath,on my bedding,on the cushions I had on my bed pretty much everywhere the house was heavy with the scent of it and dad grew to like it,my 2 brothers and sister also did,and I remember grandma saying she knew it was me coming into her house before she saw me due to the scent that entered before me ,she also grew to like it.
My hubby likes Patchouli and has worn it and I always buy him aftershave with it in,my daughter and son have grown up with scent of it and now my eldest grandson Billy although only 6yrs old likes it and always says if he can smell it.I put it on a tissue and put it in the tumble dryer, on the filter of the hover,on a piece of linen hung in the airing cupboard and used to put it in the water that went in the steam iron until son said he was asked at school what it was he smelt of ,think he was a bit embarrassed to say it was mums hippy juice LOL.
When I got pussycat I said she had to be called Patchouli,she is pretty and mysterious just like the scent its self.I have cushions all over the house that have Patchouli dabbed on them and she can always be found cuddled up to them.
Well I have enjoyed telling you about my love of Patchouli please let me know if you like it.
Hope you are all well and happy.Bye for now Love Jill xx
