=== Lavender sachets ===
 
This is one way to make a lavender sachet:
 
Find some sachets, or better yet, make your own sachet bags from fabric scraps. If you like, you can embroider lavender designs on the sachets before using them.
 
Make the lavender mix to go insider the sachets. For every 8 cups of dried lavender flowers, add 1 tablespoon (heaped) of gum benzoin or orris root powder and a few drops of lavender essential oil. Stir to combine. Note that the gum benzoin or orris root powder are "fixatives", which keeps the scent of the flowers lasting longer. The fixative is not essential but is helpful in retaining the fragrance within the sachet.
 
Distribute the mixture equally into the sachet bags. tie closed with a rubber band, then tie a ribbon over the rubbe band, finishing with a bow.
 
Use to scent drawers and under pillows. They will also discourage moths and other insects, which dislike the scent of lavender.
