What is Sachet?

The sachets, small porous bags filled with fragrant materials like dried flowers and herbs, serve multiple purposes, from freshening enclosed spaces to adding a subtle fragrance to linens and clothing. Crafting these sachets involves selecting and drying aromatic ingredients before placing them in sealed packets to preserve their scent.

At our New Zealand lavender farm, we uphold a meticulous process. Each year, we hand-harvest lavender at its peak, then carefully air-dry it for a month to ensure complete drying. Once dried, we extract the fragrant lavender flower buds, rich in lavender essential oil, to create various lavender sachet products, bringing the soothing scent of lavender into your home.

But our commitment to aromatic excellence doesn't stop there. At our New Zealand lavender farm, we pride ourselves on cultivating not only lavender but also an array of other aromatic herbs. From the robust fragrance of rosemary to the invigorating scent of eucalyptus, the delicate aroma of roses, and the cleansing properties of white sage, our diverse herb garden provides an assortment of scents for our sachets. Each herb is meticulously grown and harvested to ensure the highest quality, allowing us to create a variety of sachets that cater to different preferences and purposes. Whether you seek relaxation, rejuvenation, or simply a touch of nature's essence in your surroundings, our herb-infused sachets offer a delightful olfactory experience.

Lavender sachets offer a natural and gentle remedy for a wide range of ailments, while enveloping the senses in their calming fragrance.

Eucalyptus sachets offer an invigorating and refreshing experience, perfect for clearing the mind and promoting respiratory health. Crafted from Eucalyptus globulus (Blue Gum) and Eucalyptus cinerea (Silver Dollar) varieties, these sachets bring the distinctively clean and crisp aroma of eucalyptus into your home. Blue Gum eucalyptus, with its high oil content, is prized for its ability to clear the airways and provide relief from coughs and congestion.

How Long the Lavender Sachet Last?

The duration for which a lavender sachet lasts can vary depending on factors such as the quality of the ingredients, storage conditions, and frequency of use. Typically, a well-made lavender sachet can retain its fragrance for several months to a year when stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and moisture. Over time, the scent may gradually diminish, but the sachet can still be repurposed for other uses such as potpourri or crafting projects.
