Spring Cleaning: Spice Sachet Blend

Many herbes and flowers with their fragrant sweet smels doe comfort, and as it were revive the spirits and perfume the whole house. John Parkinson, Paradisi in Sole, ­Paradisus Terrestris, 1629


| February/March 1997


Makes about 2½ quarts
Sandalwood and ginger would be nice additions to this recipe. Sometimes I add essential oils of the spices used in this blend to intensify the fragrance.

  • 6 cups oakmoss
  • 1 cup each black peppercorns, allspice berries, and cinnamon chips
  • ¼ cup aniseed
  • 2 tablespoons cloves
  1. In a large glass or stainless-steel bowl, combine the oakmoss with the peppercorns, allspice berries, and cinnamon chips. Add the aniseed and cloves. Stir well.
  2. Make sachets from fabric scraps, adding lace or ribbon if desired, and fill with the spice blend.
