How can you de-stress with lavender?

Stephanie coordinates volunteers, marketing efforts and operations for The Healing Center in Walker’s Point.

Last week, I listed “making a lavender sachet” as one of the tips for beating work-day stress. So…I decided to follow my own advice and make one! This was an incredibly easy (and cheap!) project that I’m glad I took the time to make. All you need is:

1. One small cloth bag with a drawstring top. I found mine at Michaels in the jewelry section.

2. A handful of dried lavender. The Outpost near my house had a big bin, ready for scooping! In order to fill my tiny bag, the lavender cost about 75 cents.

After you have your two materials, just funnel in the lavender and breathe deep! These sachets also make a great gift to throw in a spa basket or toss one in each drawer at home for fresh clothes!

Lavender has been known to reduce stress, help with vertigo and calm nausea.
