What can I do with a lavender sachet?
- Stow them in drawers to make clothing and delicates smell lovely.

Subsequently, one may also ask, how do you make a lavender sachet?
How to Make Fragrant Sachets:
- Prep your stuffing. In a bowl, combine two parts lavender with one part rice; this is your sachet filling.
- Prepare squares. Cut two 3 1/2-inch squares of fabric and align them with the sides you like facing inward.
- Fill them up.
- Sew them up.
Similarly, what do you put in a sachet? You can use lavender, rice and essential oil, Epsom salts, potpourri, soda, and my favorite discovery, Downy beads. I've included a few ways to put the sachet bags together, both sew and no-sew.
Likewise, people ask, how long do lavender sachets last?
