Vacuum Bag Sachets

Vacuum Bag Sachets
You will need small cotton bags (the kind with drawstrings work best), an essential oil and some herbs and spices. The nice thing about this recipe is that you can change it according to what you like best or what you have on hand.
In a small bowl, combine:
• 1 cup cedar shavings (i.e. hamster bedding from the pet store)
• 2 tablespoons baking soda
• 1 tablespoon whole allspice, slightly crushed
• 15 drops of your favourite essential oil (mint or lavender work well)
• 1 cup of your favourite fragrant herb, dried (i.e. mint, lavender, lemon verbena or rosemary)
1. Mix well and then fill each of your cotton bags with a few tablespoons of the mixture. Store the filled bags in a glass jar with a tight fitting lid.
2. Add one sachet bag to each vacuum bag when you are changing out the bag.
3. If you ever find that a bag has lost its scent before you get a chance to use it, squeeze it to crush the herbs or add a drop of essential oil to the outside of the bag before you use it.
