The scent of lavender has a wonderfully calming effect on me.  It reminds me of a cozy bed and has a way of relieving my stress when I smell it.  Whether that scent comes from an oil, a candle or a plant I can’t help but smile when I come across it.  Today I am sharing a very simple tutorial that helps me spread that lovely lavender scent around my home, even to the most dingy parts.  Take a look at how to sew and fill a lavender sachet and see how you can make your own.

How to make a sachet supplies

  1. Fold a 10 x 5 inch piece of fabric into a 5 x 5 inch square and sew on 3 sides leaving a small opening on one end.  
  2. In a bowl, add 10 drops of lavender oil to 1 cup of dry white rice and mix.
  3. Using a funnel, add the rice to the fabric bag through the small opening until the bag is about halfway full.
  4. Sew the opening shut. 

I use a lavender sachet in my linen closet.  When I open the doors I am greeted with a light lavender scent and even my sheets carry the smell.  I ahve started using these in teh bottom of my wash baskets too to keep any oders at bay.  I also keep one in my gym bag, and sometimes in my gym shoes to keep them fresh.

Do you keep any sachets around your home?  If not, or you need a few more, use this tutorial to make your own.  

Thanks for viiting!
