Herbal Dryer Sachets

Herbal Dryer Sachets
Dryer sachets are sealed fabric pouches filled with dried herbs and flowers and scented with essential oils that you throw in the dryer with each load. The heat and movement from the dryer releases the fragrances from the herbs and oils, leaving leaves your clothes with a lasting, gentle aroma.
Dryer sachets are a natural and sustainable way of freshening up your washing and you can use dryer sachets for multiple loads. Once the sachet smells faint, you can either add a few drops of the corresponding essential oil to renew its scent, or you can use it to freshen up your drawers, a hamper or even your car. Sachets are also great for people with perfume sensitivities or allergies because the contents are all natural—just herbs and essential oils.
They are very simple to make at home.
1. Fill a cloth pouch with dried herbs and flowers. Popular choices include lavender, mint and chamomile. (You can either use a premade pouch, or you can sew two squares of cotton muslin together on three sides, leaving one side open.)
2. Customize a scent by combining the natural fragrance from the herbs with five or six drops of a complementary essential oil, such as lavender and cedarwood. Some essential oils—ginger, lavender and lemon to name a few—have natural antibacterial properties and make great sachet choices.
3. Sew the remaining side shut.
4. Throw into the dryer and enjoy!
