Herbal sachets, or charms, consist of herbs and other
materials tied-up in bits of cloth. Some sachets ward
off certain energies or disease; others draw specific
situations or powers to you.

Easy to make and pleasing to the nose, sachets are a
distinctive and aromatic gift for the holidays.

Items needed:

7 parts Juniper
4 parts Cinnamon
4 parts Allspice
4 parts Ginger
4 parts Caraway
2 parts Nutmeg
2 parts Rosemary
2 parts Lemon peel
2 parts Orange peel
1 part Clove
1 part Bay
2 pinches Orris root

Tie up in a green or red cloth and give as a gift
on Yule or Christmas.
