Homemade Herbal Sachets

You’ve probably bought at least one herbal sachet in your lifetime. If not, likely you’ve held one in your hand and taken in its intoxicating aroma. Making herbal sachets is a really easy garden craft, they make wonderful handmade gifts, and it’s a great way to use some of the bounty from your garden.

I personally like to keep a sachet filled with lavender in my lingerie drawer. I absolutely adore the smell of lavender so the longer I can keep savoring it, the better. Making a lavender herbal sachet is a great way to do that, but lavender isn’t the only thing that smells good! Can’t decide what type of herbal sachet to make? Sachets filled with mint, cedar chips, citronella, lemongrass and/or lavender prevent flea manifestation, while those filled with bay leaves, cloves and/or basil ward off flies. Popular herbs for aromatherapy include lavender, mint, lemon verbena and rosemary, thus making them perfect for lingerie drawers. Dried lavender has a wonderful scent where fresh rosemary is stronger than dried. Rosemary is easy to grow indoors in a pot, so you can grab your cuttings all year long, not just in the warm months.

You’ll want to use a breathable fabric, such as lightweight cotton, burlap, hemp, linen or tea bag mesh. Simple ribbon or twine works great for keep your herbal sachets closed as well as adding a little rustic elegance.

Materials:

  • Breathable fabric or premade drawstring bags
  • Ribbon or twine
  • Sewing machine or needle and thread
  • Dried herbs and/or aromatic flower petals or dried flowers of your choice
  • essential oils (optional)
