I knit the Palm Leaf Wrap for my daughter's dance teacher and asked my daughter to make a sachet to put in along with it. She loved the idea, and we went to Red Stick Spice to get some good smelling herbs for it.
She chose quite a few (and paid for them herself!) because she wants to make extra to sell at Port Hudson Organic Farm this summer. This sachet is made from an old T-shirt, but she also bought some little squares of fabric to make more.
This sachet is filled with her special mix of chamomile (relaxing), peppermint (wards off insects), and cloves (repels silverfish). It smells wonderful. She also bought thyme, lavender, and a tea called ginger twist. I'm going to let her use some dried sage and rosemary from our window box, and fennel and fenugreek seeds that I've had for twenty years. She's also welcome to our allspice seeds, bay leaves, anise stars, vanilla powder, and some rose petal tea which I never quite managed to acquire the taste for.
She always has some project going on in addition to her other activities. I really admire that. She's a very industrious kid!
