  • Large mixing bowl
  • small funnel



  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the cedarwood shavings and dried lavender.
  • Sprinkle with the Atlas cedarwood and lavender essential oils, and mix together.
  • Use a funnel to fill each sachet bag with ¾ cup (35 g) of the cedarwood-lavender mixture. (No bags? Place the shavings in the centers of fabric squares instead.)
  • Cinch the bags shut, then squeeze them to crush the herbs and shavings and release their natural oils. (If using fabric squares, gather the corners and tie with string.)


To use, place the sachets in a closet, drawer, or clothes hamper.
If the scent starts to run out, simply open up the sachets and add more of the essential oils.
