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.
DIY Protective Drawer Sachet
- Place 1/4 -1/2 cup of pie weights in a bowl.
- Add the essential oils over the top of the pie weights.
- Mix to coat.
- Add pie weights to the muslin bags and place in a drawer.
Remember that you can get creative with this basic DIY. Stamp the bags, use different fillers, change up your essential oils, etc. For another drawer sachet option, check out our DIY: Scented Sachets post.
