Making Lavender Sachet Gifts

September 11, 2008 · Print This Article

Making fragrant Lavender Sachet bags for gifts is easy. Don’t worry if your don’t grow your own lavender because there are several places where you can purchase lavender flower buds at a very reasonable price… along with the lavender oil, and sachet bags. It makes a lovely inexpensive gift. And… we’re going to give you free gift tags.

The project is so easy, your kids can help.

Harvest the Lavender in late August or early September… when there are no blooms left… only the flower. buds. Or, you can purchase your Lavender at Mountain Rose Herb Co. or San Francisco Herb Company. Both carry lovely products including the Lavender Oil and bags.

Cut the stems long on the Lavender and allow it to dry up to a week. Late in the season, it doesn’t take long for it to dry out.

When I begin to make my Lavender Sachet I spread out a lot of work paper on my table because the lavender will shed it’s buds immediately when you begin to work with it.

You’ll need: 1.Your own dried Lavender or purchased Lavender buds. 2. You’ll need Lavender Essential oil.

You’ll need: 1. Muslin bags (I use 2X5 inch) or small organza bags (3×4 inch). 2. A small scoop or spoon. 3. A Lavender designed rubber stamp and a rubber stamp ink pad.

Remove all of the flower buds from the stems.. but don’t worry if some of the stems and leaves fall into the mixture because they’re fragrant too.

Add Lavender Oil to the mix. I use about 1/4 oz to 8 oz of the buds. Essential Oils are very strong. The large package you see is 8 oz. It takes a lot of buds to make a pound. I use a medicine dropper to drop in smaller amounts of oil. You have to be the judge on this.

Put the Lavender buds into a plastic bag and seal up for about a week. Store it in a dark dry place. After a few days, you may want to check on it to see if you need to add a few more drops of oil.

Stamp the muslin bag with the Rubber stamp.

After the Lavender has seasoned, scoop the buds into the stamped muslin or organza bags.

Place the gift tag on the bags with a bit of ribbon or twine and place them in a cute basket. Or put a couple of the bags in a clear Cello bag with a little tinsel and tie the bag shut with ribbon or twine. Don’t forget to add your tag.

Give them away to friends…but make sure you keep a few for yourself… they make your drawers and lingerie smell heavenly.

Have a good time with this project!

    Thank you for this tutorial.

    I was cutting down my lavender at at the end of the season. I just stripped the stems of the buds and was drying them. (now i see I should have kept the buds on the stems and then dried them) who knew.

    I had no idea what I was doing, but now I will be getting some oil, and if it doesn’t work, I will try your method next year.

    Thanks again. I love the smell of the lavender.

    ditto on the lavender rubber stamp question. Yours is beautiful.

    I’ve been making lavender dryer sachets for years, and just found a recipe for Lavender-hops dream pillows. Made one for myself and love the results! I’d like to make a fancy muslin bag for these to give as gifts.

    I, too, would like to know where you found this beautiful stamp. It is exactly what I have been looking for.

    I love your muslin stamped lavendar bags and want to make some.

    I have looked locally for these ready made muslin bags and cannot find them (Seattle Tacoma area). Where do you get the bags? Also cannot find a lavendar stamp right now. Thank you for your help

    I am also interested in knowing where to purchase the lavender stamp — and any other herb stamps, if you know of any.

  20. DonnaNo Gravatar on July 14th, 2010 8:21 pm

    loved the article on making lavender sachet. who makes the lavender stamp, I see others have also asked but there was no answer posted. I only have three lavender plants but they are loaded with flowers. I am glad to know how to make the sachet now,

  21. Julie LawNo Gravatar on September 7th, 2010 5:07 pm

    Could you please also tell me where to get the lavender stamp. Also, the little muslin bags.

    Maybe you could change the page subject title Making Lavender Sachet Gifts | Insightful Nana to something more better for your blog post you make. I enjoyed the the writing however.

  25. JenniferNo Gravatar on February 9th, 2011 9:21 pm

    Does anyone know where I could buy the rubber stamp online?

    Thank you!

  26. Charmaine RimmerNo Gravatar on February 20th, 2011 5:46 am

    I am so glad I came across this wonderful website, as I was also looking for lavender rubber stamps, found one or two but not nearly as lovely as the one you use on the lavender bags.

    I would be so very grateful if someone could let me know where to buy one. I live in the UK but will order it from USA if I can’t get it here, it doesn’t seem as if I can as I have gone on many websites

    Thnks you, I look forward to hearing from someone and also browsing the website.

  27. barbaraNo Gravatar on January 12th, 2012 4:40 pm

    dear insightful nana:
    that is beautiful, your sachet bags, i ordered on line and the stuff has arrived, i did not know about your site, so need to search for the lavendar stamp and ink
    AND i got the muslin unbleached on amazon.

    one of the sites told me to use ORRID ROOT which keeps the fragrance coming and coming, also ordered cedar chips for bins and closets and household…

    do you know, would i mix a little orris root in with the lavendar essential oil? i wasted money as i see it cheaper, this may be for cooking lavendar as i got organic food grade french provencal lavendar buds….very nice, i assume they are dry already, came in a silver bag.
    can you tell me anything about orris root, and thank you so much!!! i’ll check the other areas of your site for cool stuff.
    be blessed,

  28. CindyNo Gravatar on March 8th, 2012 1:34 pm

    I’d love to know where you got your lavender rubber stamp. Your you tube and info was extremely helpful. Thanks so much.

  29. KymNo Gravatar on July 22nd, 2012 9:38 pm

    What a wonderful website. I’d really appreciate it if you could let me know where you got the lavender stamp. Thank you.
