DIY Essential Oil Protective Drawer Sachet

I Heart Oils DIY Protective Drawer Sachet Cedarwood Arborvitae Essential Oil


Drawer sachets are a super simple DIY project. I love making them for my own use and also to use as a practical and fun gift. Our Protective Drawer Sachets naturally and safely repel insects that can be a threat to the contents of drawers and closets. They are so easy to put together and are long lasting.

The combo of Arborvitae and Cedarwood is specifically intended to repel insects, but you can substitute other essential oils. You may want to choose based on your preferred aromas or perhaps choose a scent to go along with the season or a holiday. When you notice the scent fading, simply refresh the pie weights with additional oil.
