No Sew Lavender Scented Drawer Sachet
Learn how to make a no sew lavender scented drawer sachet to freshen up your drawers, linen closets, vehicles, gym bags, or anything else that needs freshening up!
You will need:
- 6×12-inch piece of fabric (fat quarters work really well for this if you are only planning to make a few)
- Hem tape
- Scissors or fabric cutter
- 1/4 cup Epsom salt
- 1/2 cup white rice
- 18 – 20 drop Lavender Essential Oil
Making sure the patterned side of the fabric is facing you, fold the 6×12 inch piece of fabric in half to make a 6×6 inch square. Cut the hem tape for two sides and lay the hem tape along the edges of the patterned side of the fabric.
Iron each side down for about 30 seconds. Allow 30 seconds for drying and cooling. Turn fabric right side out, so the pattern is now facing you.
In a bowl, mix Epsom salt, rice, and essential oil.
Fill the sachet with the mixture. (I used all of the mixture in 1 sachet)
Fold the top edges in and line with hem tape to close up the sachet. Repeat step 3.
Tip: After making one, I found it much easier to fold the edges and iron them down after I ironed the sides together and had turned the fabric right side out.
Place in a drawer for a nice refreshing aroma!
This little sachet doesn’t have to be confined to a drawer. It can be placed anywhere that needs freshening up, such as a linen closet, a vehicle, or even a gym bag. You can also lay it on your pillow beside of you at night to get a relaxing and peaceful sleep.
How will you use your DIY lavender scented no sew drawer sachet?

Great idea! I’m thinking about making some of these to use inside of suitcases while being stored in the garage. Also a nice way to use up fabric scraps I’ve been hoarding lol. Thanks for sharing the possibilities are endless!
