“Sachets”

“The Illustrated Herbal Encyclopedia” by Brenda Little
 
1/2    cup each dried lavender and rosemary
1        tbsp. Dried southernwood leaves
 
Or
 
1            cup dried mint leaves
1/4        cup each dried southernwood, tansy and lavender
1            tbsp. Powdered cloves
 
** Mix the ingredients together and sew them into small muslin bags.  These can be hung in wardrobes or put among woollies in summer storage.  Fit one around a padded coat hanger before putting on the ornamental coating.  Small sachet of these mixtures tucked among books will stop them developing a musty smell and will also keep insects away.
