sa·chet noun \sa-?sh?\
: a small bag that has a powder or a mixture of dried flowers and spices inside it and that is used to give a pleasant smell to clothes, sheets, etc.
That is the definition of “sachet” that I found in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. But I am giving that definition an update today because I discovered a much easier and enjoyable version of a sachet.
I was trying to think of a way that I could somehow “sweeten” my sock drawer with my favorite essential oils when I came across these little organza favor bags that I purchased a long time ago in the Walmart wedding supplies section and used in this post I did on How To Make Your Own Oatmeal Shower Bags. After that it wasn’t hard to figure out the rest.
I grabbed a handful of cotton balls from my bathroom…..
Added a few drops of Lavender essential oil on each cotton ball…..
Tucked 4 balls into each bag…..
And pulled the string tight.
All that was left was to tuck them into my dresser drawers (which I may or may not have been organized a bit for this picture) and enjoy the wonderful smell, not to mention therapeutic benefits, of one of my favorite EO’s. (Of course you can use your favorite essential oil.)
A few EO-soaked cotton balls tucked inside an organza bag = instant sachet!
I just adore a simple, but effective DIY project!
