Aromatherapy sachets can provide a calming, subtle scent to your home or office. The sachets can be placed in drawers or closets to give clothes a nice smell or near pillows for calming down and relaxing before bedtime. Easy to make, aromatherapy sachets are also a great gift for special occasions.
Things You'll Need
- Dried lavender, sage or cinnamon sticks
- Lace or netted sachet bags
Gather the type of scent you would like to place in your sachet bag. Cinnamon sticks can be found in all grocery stores. Dried sage and lavender can be found in specialty stores or spa boutiques. Sachet bags can be found in a variety of locations; craft and retail stores like Micheal's, JoAnn's and Target carry them.
Fill each sachet with the desired amount of dried flowers or cinnamon sticks. For a combination scent, you can add 1 or 2 drops of your favorite essential oils to the sachet to intensify the scent or personalize it. Adding eucalyptus oil to lavender can give it an invigorating scent, while vanilla essential oil would do well with cinnamon.
Tie each bag with a coordinating ribbon, and be sure to fasten it tightly. Some sachet bags come with a drawstring, which makes it easier to seal the bag.
Place the sachets around the house and inside drawers for a pleasant and calming scent. Give the sachets to friends and family during the holidays as a cheap and thoughtful gift.
