Herbal Sachet Recipes - Part 1

Freshening the Home

Drawer and closet sachets, moth repellents, vacuum fresheners, and dryer sachets are all popular natural products that you can provide for your customers, give as gifts, or use yourself.

The following sachets can be made quickly and easily with a sewing machine and some cotton fabric, cheesecloth or even old pantyhose. If you don't sew, you can easily make sachets using ready-made organza bags sold by packaging and soap suppliers alike. You can even make sachets using heat sealable tea bags.

Vacuum Freshener Bags

1/4 cup dried lavender
1/4 cup dried rosemary
1 tbsp whole cloves
1/2 cup cedar shavings
1 tbsp baking soda
7 drops of essential oil of your choice
Pantyhose, cheesecloth or heat sealable tea bags

Mix ingredients. Sew sachets using pantyhose or cheesecloth approximately 3x4 inches. For nonsewing, use tea bags. Add 3 tbsp of the mixture. Sew or seal shut. Place a sachet into each new vacuum bag as it is replaced.
