Lavender Sachets ~ perfect for mothers and friends of all ages

Lavender Field in Langley, BC

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and I always think of lavender.

My grandmother used to have handkerchiefs embroidered with tiny flower designs and fragrant with lavender.

there are more than 200 varieties of lavender

Did you know that the fragrance of lavender promotes relaxation and soothes fatigue?

I often make little lavender sachets to tuck in with gifts for friends and co-workers. They would also be lovely to give to all the mothers that you know.

They are very easy to make.  I buy dried French or English lavender, little organza bags with drawstring ribbons, and some colourful ribbon to tie into bows.

Simply scoop enough lavender into each pouch to make it full, tie with pretty ribbon, and voila…all ready to go. I like to make little tags to attach with instructions to tap the lavender lightly to release the aroma before bed for a soothing sleep.

Remember to make one for yourself and keep it on your bed-stand.  Give it a quick squish and drift off into dreamland.

Lavender sachets make nice little thank you’s for parties and showers.

You can grow your own lavender in the garden or patio pots.  Harvest early in the morning  just after it comes into bloom and hang to dry.
