Lavender Dreams... Lavender Tea Bag Sachets



Lavender... I just love the scent of lavender! It was wonderful to have had such a good harvest of lavender from our garden last year, as I've been using some of the dried flowers through the winter. 

Some use of our home-dried lavender lately has been to sew some Lavender Tea Bag Sachets. I was greatly inspired by these lavender sachets with tea-time theme. I shaped my bags differently, and used some different materials as well. A very happy time spent in my sewing room for an hour or so! I have also made sachets filled with a mix of dried lavender, rose petals, mint and chamomile, which make sweet mini sleepy time dream pillows.

The coming summer, I hope to make more of these after the lavender harvest! I would like to have extra to tuck in among linens, in cupboards, and maybe for gift-giving. 

Dreaming of this year's lavender... :)))

  1. These are just beautiful, Tracy. I especially love the fabric you used -- but too pretty to stick into tea! How nice to be able to use these in linens and such.

    1. Technically you could put these sachets in a cup of hot water and make a simple lavender infusion/tisane! Actually, the sachets with mix of lavender, mint, chamomile and rose could really be used like tea bags! But yes, too pretty to do that... ;)

  2. such little treasures!
    have you ever thought about writing a book Tracy?
    the art of making a home. the beautiful rituals. the seasons. the recipes.
    it would be wonderful! maybe even an e~book with some of your beautiful photography in it. I know a lady who keeps all her best posts and has them made into a book just for herself even. she wants to have them for her grandchildren so someday they can look at them and really "know her" she says! :)
    even if you don't have grandchildren it's kind of a lovely idea. and very inexpensive.
    now... if you only had the time! that's the question! XOXO

    1. You are so kind, Tammy! I've heard of some folks who take special posts and moment from their blog and print it in some way, or even just arrange it in a digital format to keep. I must say, I have always long held a dream of doing a book. And last year I did start putting together a bit of material for something like a seasonal living e-book. But that project has stalled a bit, as I'm not entirely happy with it so far for multiple reasons. I'm not sure how interesting it would be really, too, as I already do a lot of seasonal here at the blog... and I don't have a very big readership. But I may just keep tinkering away at the project... We'll see! I'm glad you'd be interested in an e-book. :)

    1. Oh, that's a pity about your Professor and lavender! :( I don't think I've ever known or hear of anyone allergic to lavender, which seems such a gentle plant/scent!

  4. Loved your fun thoughts on things to do with your lavender. The added ingredients are great too. Actually, they are relaxing herbs; right. Tuck on near your pillow. I do love the smell of Lavender.
    Sending loving thoughts your way and hugs too!
    Thanks for your last comment on my post. You are a true sister in Christ. Thanks for your blogging friendship.

    2. Oh, yes, LeAnn... lavender is one of those wondrous herbs and helps produce calm and relaxation in the body. The others are relaxing herbs too--chamomile and mint. Lots you can do with these great herbs! :)

  5. Funny, I was just talking the other day about how much I love Lavender. We have some at the front of our house. When it is in bloom it is alive and buzzing with bees. I love it! LOVE YOU! Your lavender bags are just gorgeous! xoxo

  6. How sweet are those sachets! And a labor of love. I know how time consuming it can be to harvest all that lavender.
