Lavender Dryer Sachet

Lavender Dryer Sachet

Babies, and even adults, are sensitive to synthetic perfumes and dyes By laundering baby’s clothing and bedding with Lavender Dryer Sachets, you will be sure that you are only surrounding them with the natural relaxing properties of this soothing flower.
100% natural recipe for Lavender Dryer Sachets:
· Scoop dried Lavender petals into a stainless steel or glass bowl. Add 3 drops of Lavender essential oil to every cup of dried flower petals. Mix well.
· Spoon mixture into drawstring muslin ‘Tea Bags’ and stuff top with cotton balls. Tie very tightly.
Or: Make your own ‘Tea Bags’ using square pieces of cotton muslin or cheesecloth. Sew around edges, leaving an opening at one end to spoon Lavender mixture into middle. Sew up the opening.
· Each Lavender Dryer Sachet is useful for 4-5 dryer cycles.
Optional: Use Rose petals instead of, or with, Lavender petals.

Caution: Rose petals may discolor white clothing during dryer cycle.
