Lavender Sachets Inspired by the French Countryside
Lavender is known for its array of beneficial properties. The plant's aroma is considered uplifting and also soothing. It can also be a helpful sleep aid. Some place lavender sachets near their pillow at night to help them fall asleep. When lavender sachets are added to dresser drawers, damaging moths stay away. I also love that the scent of lavender wards off mosquitoes and other biting insects.
On my last few trips to antique shows across the country, I kept seeing booths filled with vintage French striped linens. I took my inspiration for these sachets from those fabrics and the wonderful French countryside filled with row upon row of lavender.
I love sharing sachets with family and friends. I think you will too: they are simply irresistible. So go ahead and, like me, make up a bunch. If you don't feel like sewing, pre-made sachets ready for filling can be found at your local craft store.
