"The wild plant is collected and dried in the sun. Care is taken that the process of drying is not carried too far, or the leaves become brittle and crumble to dust in packing. The dried tops, technically known as summitates patchouli, are imported into England in boxes of one hundred and ten pounds each, and halfboxes. The dried article is said to smell more strongly in dry than in damp places.

"In the simple dried form Patchouli is also used to fill sachets, and is put in muslin bags with clothing to keep away moths and other destructive vermin. The leaf is also used in India as an ingredient in tobacco for smoking. Upon a larger scale the wealthier natives use the plant for stuffing matrasses and pillows, on the supposition that it is very efficacious in preventing contagion and prolonging life. Vick's Illustrated Monthly Magazine, Volume 8
