DIY: Lavender Sachets

Have you ever opened a drawer, and a beautiful herbal scent hit your nose, making you instantly smile? I love that moment! Nice herbal scents make me instantly feel better. I love adding these to drawers, closets, bathrooms – wherever I can! Adding new scents for each season (like when spring cleaning) gives a fun and fresh feeling.

Benefits of Herbal Sachets

Besides the uplifting moment that the wave of herbal scent has on someone, herbal sachets have more benefits depending on what you add to them. Some herbs and their benefits include:

  • Peppermint or spearmint – refreshing, boosts energy, eases headaches
  • Lemongrass – bug repellent, snake repellent, said to promote self-awareness
  • Rosemary – helps with focus
  • Cinnamon – relaxing, reduces stress, and deters ants
  • Lilacs – balancing and calming
  • Sage – stimulate and clarify the mind
  • Basil – nerve calming, refreshing
  • Patchouli – aphrodisiac, bug repellent
  • Cedar bark – mice deterrent and enhances concentration 

If you don’t have dried herbs, you can use 10 drops of essential oil on a piece of fabric. Ensure the essential oil does not come in contact with any fabric you don’t want to risk getting an oil stain on. Read more about essential oil safety in How to Use Essential Oils Safely with Children

Rustina started studying herbs and natural living after allopathic medicine was unable to provide answers or support when she needed it. She is continually working on learning more and improving her and her family’s health, diving in and researching any topic. A love of learning led her to homeschool and begin working from home. She now spends each day with her husband and four sons as they travel on their home education journey together. She is thankful for the opportunity to write about these interests and passions for Earthley Wellness and Modern Alternative Mama.
