Learn how to make a no sew lavender scented drawer sachet to freshen up your drawers, linen closets, vehicles, gym bags, or anything else that needs freshening up!
I have been trying my best to get my home cleaned and organized. (No I’m not watching Marie Kondo.) While doing so, I noticed that my drawers could use a little freshening up themselves. I mean, I put my clothes in them, so why shouldn’t they smell fresh? That’s when I decided to make some lavender scented drawer sachets.
Lavender is one of the most popular scents for cleaning. And no wonder! It has calming and sedative properties that help you relax, fight stress, calm anxiety, and even help you get better sleep. Lavender can also be used for headaches, nausea, for your hair, for your skin, and so on. There are so many uses for lavender, which is why it is one of the most versatile oils. I even use lavender essential oil in my DIY Psoriasis Balm.
With that being said, let’s move along to today’s DIY!
Lavender scented no sew drawer sachets.
You will need:
- 6×12-inch piece of fabric (fat quarters work really well for this if you are only planning to make a few)
- Hem tape
- Scissor or fabric cutter
- 1/4 cup Epsom salt
- 1/2 cup white rice
- 18 – 20 drop Lavender Essential Oil
Here’s what you will do:
Making sure the patterned side of the fabric is facing you, fold the 6×12 inch piece of fabric in half to make a 6×6 inch square. Cut the hem tape for two sides and lay the hem tape along the edges of the patterned side of the fabric.
Iron each side down for about 30 seconds. Allow 30 seconds for drying and cooling. Turn fabric right side out, so the pattern is now facing you.
In a bowl, mix Epsom salt, rice, and essential oil.
Fill the sachet with the mixture. (I used all of the mixture in 1 sachet)
Fold the top edges in and line with hem tape to close up the sachet. Repeat step 3.
Tip: After making one, I found it much easier to fold the edges and iron them down after I ironed the sides together and had turned the fabric right side out.
Place in a drawer for a nice refreshing aroma!
This little sachet doesn’t have to be confined to a drawer. It can be placed anywhere that needs freshening up, such as a linen closet, a vehicle, or even a gym bag. You can also lay it on your pillow beside of you at night to get a relaxing and peaceful sleep.
