These pretty little sachets look like something you'd discover in an elegant Parisian boutique, but they're quite easy to make. Fill them with sweet-smelling potpourri, and tuck them into Christmas stockings or give them as small gifts. We used a mixture of dried lavender, calendula, chamomile, and roses for our potpourri; a few drops of lily-of-the-valley and freesia-scented oils enhance the fragrance. Add a teaspoon of orris root, a fixative, to help retain the potpourri's scent.
