Lavender Sachets Inspired by the French Countryside
Enjoy the beneficial properties of lavender all year long when you add some to sachets.
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.
