By definition, a sachet is a small cloth scented bag filled with herbs, potpourri, or aromatic ingredients. It's also referred to as a sweet bag, perfume cushion, smelling cushion, fragrant bag or pomander. The use of sachets dates back to Chinese during the Han Dynasty in 210 A.D., serving as an ornament worn on the body and used to absorb sweat, repel insects and ward off evil. In medieval times is was referred to as a 'plague-bag' and worn around the waist or neck to ward off disease.

Herbal Blends - Pillow & Sachet Filling
Restful Dreams Recipe: Roses - When Cleopatra invited Mark Anthony to her palace, she had the floors covered knee-deep in rose petals, such was her belief in the romantic powers of their perfume. Mugwort - Europeans once believed this aromatic herb would bring good and vivid dreams. Mugwort leaves have a sage like smell. Sweet Marjoram - Once the plant that sanctified marital bliss, as its name suggests, a gentle, subtly perfumed calming herb. Hops - Hops have a long reputation as a sedative and as a preservative to brewers. Per Jim Long of Long Creek Herbs "This is the very best blend for people who have difficulty sleeping or suffer from nightmares."

Lavender -In the Middle Ages, Lavender was thought to be an herb of love. Lavender has modest abilities as a medicinal herb and has been used to relieve headaches and revive those with "nervous languor". Sweet Marjoram - Once the plant that sanctified marital bliss, as its name suggests, a gentle, subtly perfumed calming herb. Mint - This herb, fresh or dried, is an excellent aromatic. "The Smelle rejoiceth the heart of man," wrote sixteenth century herbalist John Gerand.
Lavender Pillow & Sachet Filling
Lavender, Lavendula officinalis is an herb that's very special to us here at Lavender Way... according to Rodale's Illustrated Encyclopedia of Herbs (© 1987 by Rodale Press, Inc.) "The power of smell invokes some of our strongest and fondest memories." According to herbalist Dorothy Hall, Lavender is perfect for those who have trouble sleeping because their mind is too active. Peter Holmes, L.Ac., M.H indicates that it's relaxing and helps calm the mind. Mothers throughout history have used it as a component of nightly baths in hopes of generating a night of peaceful slumber for both baby AND mother. What better herb, then, to use to fill our Dream Pillows?
All the Lavender we use to fill pillows, sachets and other products is 100% organic, no pesticides used. Photo at left courtesy Beth Cone Cramer at Revere Magazine.
Traditional Herb Gathering Rules
Interesting Adages from Days Gone By... These rules that have been handed down through the centuries and practiced mostly by the Druids of old and is the ritual expected if the herb is to retain full power.
Pluck herbs with your left hand, never your right. Never face into the wind. Never look behind you. Never touch an herb with cold iron. Never let a blade touch the roots. Always talk to the herb as you cut it so it knows what your intentions are. Never let the herb touch the ground. Wear white linen and no shoes or no clothes. More power can be added to the herb is you fast and abstain from sex a day or two prior to plucking the herb. Herbs are best plucked at night usual at sunset, midnight or sunrise.
Good luck with that!
