lavender dryer sachets

sristonJanuary 24, 2004

Hazel, are you still hanging around here somewhere? Of course, this is directed to anyone that can answer it, but I know that you make and sell these products. I have some botanicals ordered from Atlantic Spice- I am going to test the market for eye masks, dryer sachets, etc. I want some for myself, anyway- LOL. I ordered the #1 Lavender like you suggested, along with several other things that I will need. I am anxious to get them and get started. Anyway, I was wondering about the dryer sachets. You are the only person I have ever ran across that makes these. I know you said you just put the lavender into muslin bags, and then it is tossed into the dryer. How big are the bags you use? I have some muslin drawstring bags that I bought a while back that I am planning on using. I am going to sew the tops shut, though, even though they are drawstring because I think the lavender would come out in the dryer. Is lavender the only thing you put in your dryer sachets? Thanks a bunch for your information- I appreciate it.

Susan

The Lavender sachets have, thus far, sold well. All I did was to put some dried lavender in the bags and close them up. I have a whole bunch of organza bags that I am going to use, too, for drawer sachets. I am about out of lavender, will have to order more. The bags I originally used were 4x6 muslin bags and held a lot of lavender. I got my botanicals from atlanticspice.com. I am going to make some other kinds of sachets, too, as soon as I locate some more recipes. A friend also told me that she uses the muslin bags to hold the corn cob bedding sachet. I make and sell alot of the corn cob bedding sachets, but I have always packed them in tea bags. I was worried about the muslin aborbing the fragrance oil in the corn cob bedding, but she said hers doesn't. She uses one ounce of FO in three cups of corn cob bedding. I am going to try that, too. (So many things to try..)

I just bought some lavender dryer sachets in NH this summer from a company called sweet grass farm. They are WONDERFUL!! I'm going to make some, too.

I know this thread is not new, but I am considering making sachets with corn cob bedding. I would like to hear the voices of experience about how your things came out! Thanks, Teri
