By Ruth Barnard

This quick craft is the perfect gift for Mother's day.

They can pop it in their draws or bag and enjoy the relaxing scent of lavender and chamomile.


     

What you need:

• Cotton wool

• Muslin cloth or other material

• Essential oil (we used lavender)

• Dried flowers or herbs (we used chamomile from a tea bag)

• Twine or string

• A fresh flower for decoration (optional)

• Scissors
 

 

 

 
     

 


 

 

What to do:

Time taken: 10 minutes

1. Drip a few drops of essential oil onto a few cotton balls

2. Wrap them up in a square of material with your dried flowers or herbs

3. Tie your bundle VERY tightly with string (maybe get an adult to help)

4. Trim the excess material from the top

5. Pop a fresh flower behind the string

 
     
 




 

How to dry Flowers and Herbs:

• Pick your lavender or herbs

• Tie your bunch at the bottom

• Hang them up in a dry and warm space and leave them there for a few weeks

Home dried flowers would be a great addition to any scent bundle. Flowers prepared for drying could be part of your gift. Let your Mum know that when they are dry they can easily be added to any pre made scent bundle.
