Give the gift of enhanced relaxation with aromatherapy in the new year! Today we have easy sachet and therapy pillows to make, give and even to enjoy yourself. You deserve some relaxation too, don’t you?!
Rice Heat Therapy Bag
Did you see Kristin’s fantastic Rice Heat Therapy Bag Tutorial? You’ll read it and will then immediately leap across the room to get started on several bags. It even includes touches of Lauren’s talent too, with her gift tag PDF for you to download. Have fun!
Lavender Eye Pillow
Do you know about Amy Butler’s great selection of free patterns? Scroll down for her Lavender Eye Pillow Pattern (you’ll be distracted by everything else so you must stay focused!) for a great how-to on a slipcover and carrying case in PDF format.
Lavender Bird Pillow
Megan from the scent of water gives you the confidence to lend vintage linens (or any other fabric you love) new life in her lovely Lavender Bird Pillow Tutorial.
