Tips for moms: Make perfumes for the wardrobes with simple ingredients


There are some easy and natural ways to make your own scents for your closet or any other small space.

Especially now that you’ve sorted out your winter clothes and quilts it’s the perfect time to freshen up your wardrobes.

Dried herbs or essential oils

You can make your own sachet at home with just a few ingredients. First, gather together the dried herbs or oils you want to use. Then find a small bowl or cup to serve as a base. Cut a piece of fabric into a square shape, making sure it is large enough to completely cover the bowl or cup.

Place the fabric over the bowl or cup and secure with a rubber band or string. Your perfume is ready to use. You can refresh it at intervals.


Lavender has a strong aroma.

Lavender and lemon spray

  • ¼ alcohol
  • ¾ cup distilled water
  • 15 drops lavender essential oil
  • 10 drops of lemon essential oil


Mix ¼ cup rubbing alcohol, ¾ cup distilled water, 15 drops lavender oil and 10 drops lemon oil in a spray bottle.

Shake well and spray the inside of the closet. This particular spray will help you keep clothes fresh by keeping away moths.


Essential oils are ideal fragrances for wardrobes.

Cotton and essential oils


  • organza bags
  • small pieces of cotton
