I've been growing Lavender for a few years. Letting the bees enjoy and cutting stems for friends. It spreads! and I needed to do something with the lavender besides letting it just go! I harvested it in the dried stage for use in sachet. (I let it dry on the live stem after the flowering.)
The fragrance is super powerful.
I am making sachet packets out of cotton for my lavender. And of course I am painting them up, what else I would do? The packets are about 4.5 inches square, filled with about 2 heaping tablespoons of dried lavender, hand painted!, and with a ribbon loop for hanging if you want.
