Clearing Spaces - Filling Lavender Bags and Stamping Herbal Bath Tea Bags

Carole had been busy sewing two sorts of fabric bags, the lavender bags were now ready to fill and the room was filled with the relaxing smell of English Lavender. There are many benefits to growing lavender and we have quite a lot all over The Green Patch, it has many uses and is also a great support to bees.

Carole had also sewn small, cotton, drawstring bags

and the group used stamps and fabric ink pads

to decorate the plane cotton

in preparation for our lotions and potions 

sessions coming to The green Patch soon!

It was a very relaxing, enjoyable morning

Herbal bath tea ideas - 


  • Rose petals and lavender are a brilliant combination and fill the air with a lovely floral scent while helping the body to relax in the warm water.
  • Calendula and chamomile are both known for their soothing properties and can also help soften the skin as the stress melts away in this bath combination.
  • Sage and lemon balm can help clear the head.
  • Hops and hyssop can help bring about restful sleep.
Rejuvenation blends
  • Peppermint and lemon balm will soothe and rejuvenate without the jittery after effects of coffee.
  • Rose petals and lovage will fill the air with a delightful herbal and floral scent that relaxes the body and invigorates the mind.
  • Jasmine flowers and dried lemon peel with help the body smell good after the bath while simultaneously easing stress and hopefully helping the brain find new thoughts.

Lavender sachets have lots of different uses:
  • Stow them in drawers to make clothing and delicates smell lovely
  • Toss in the dryer with laundry (good for at least a dozen loads!)
  • Place in a pillowcase as an aid to relaxation before sleeping
  • Use as a natural alternative to mothballs, which are toxic, to help repel moths while storing seasonal clothes
  • Stow in the car as a pleasant alternative to commercial air fresheners
  • Store one in each piece of empty luggage after a trip to keep suitcases smelling fresh and clean
