My closet use to smell slightly musty. It didn’t smell terrible but it didn’t smell great either! I thought and thought about what natural product I could make so that it would smell nice in there. I came up with a really easy fix! This DIY Lavender Sachet is so easy to make (and effective I might add) that you will be running to the store to grab supplies quickly so that you can make closet drawer sachets for everywhere that you store clothing or linens. These would even make great little gifts for friends and family.
DIY Lavender Sachets
These DIY sachets smell great, make you feel great, and protect your linens all at the same time.
Sachet Supplies Needed:
- Cotton Rounds
- Essential Oils- Lavender and Lime work well
- Small Organza Bags (these can be found at craft stores)
How To Make Lavender Closet Drawer Sachets:
Grab your supplies and head to a counter. Start with your cotton rounds and essential oils. (I always choose to use Young Living because they are 100% pure and are very concentrated so a little goes a long way!)
I placed 2 drops of Lavender on one cotton round and 2 drops of Lime on another cotton round. Depending on the size of your drawer or closet, you can add a few drops more.
You may think I chose lavender essential oil because it smells so good and you’d be partially right. That is certainly important to me but I also like that lavender has relaxing aromatherapy qualities and antibacterial properties. What’s more? I chose lavender essential oil because it is a natural bug repellent and so great for keeping out moths or spiders. Lime essential oil is also thought to be effective fore repelling bugs, particularly spiders.
Once you have added the oils to your cotton rounds, grab an organza bag and place your cotton rounds in. Cinch it up and hang on a hanger or place on a closet shelf! That’s it! Easy right? Plus, they look cute. That is a nifty little bonus of the pretty organza bags.
These DIY sachets would be great little additions to Easter baskets (for tweens/teens) since Easter is around the corner!
If you want to try some different scents with your homemade sachets, here are some other essential oil combinations that smell nice in closets as well as work to repel bugs:
-Lemon and Peppermint
-Orange and Lavender
-Cedarwood and Spearmint
-Tea Tree and Rosemary
Do you think you will give these homemade closet drawer sachets a try? They are so easy to assemble and the scent lasts for quite a while! You can easily refresh the scent by just adding a few more drops of lavender to the same cotton round pads.
