This Lavender Vanilla Sachet can be whipped up in under 10 minutes! I’ve kept one in my gym bag for weeks and it still smells great!
Here’s what you need to make your own Lavender Vanilla Sachet!
3 tbsp flax seed
4 drops of lavender essential oil
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
Sewing machine with coordinating thread
Hot glue gun
Ribbon for embellishment
I started by cutting two 4 inch by 4 inch squares of burlap.
Place the squares of burlap on top of each other. Using a 1/4 inch seam allowance, stitch around three of the four sides. Leave one side open.
In a small bowl, mix together the flax seed, lavender oil, and vanilla extract.
Scoop mixture into the burlap pouch.
Stitch opening closed.
To fray edges, pull the loose end of the burlap.
Then hot glue your ribbon onto the sachet.
These are great for gym bags, closets, dresser drawers and even as an air freshener in the car!
