Truth or Spoof: Essential Oil Scent Sachets

UPDATE
Cotton ball ones work the best! I changed up the scent to 4 drops citrus fresh, 3 drops lavender, and 2 drops peppermint. These seriously soak up gross smells. I found that after the first week you can't smell the scent anymore BUT it neutralizes any odors so there isn't anything to smell at all! Also, a cotton ball at the bottom of a trash can has the same effect!


So I wanted to make an alternative to potpourri and Downey beads for my sachets. I don't like my family breathing in any potentially hazard fumes but I want my closets to smell non stuffy! So I turned to Pinterest to help solve my issue. I came across 2 great options that are both affordable. The question is, do both work? If yes, does one work better than the other? So I decided to do a Truth or Spoof on this. I put the rice in one closet and the cotton ball in one closet. I will re-evaluate them and update this post.

RICE SACHET
1/4 cup of rice
4 drops peppermint
4 drops lemon
4 drops lavender
Combine in bowl and spoon into 2 sachets. Pull string to close tightly.

COTTON BALL SACHET
1 super large cotton ball
Place the following drops on cotton ball:
4 drops peppermint
4 drops lemon
4 drops lavender
Place cotton ball in sachets. Pull string to close tightly.
