Fragrance-free sachets? A Treehouse reader challenge

I have a holiday-crafting question for all you smart and crafty blog readers out there.

I have some lace, hankies, ribbon, muslin and things like that that would make great bedroom sachets. The kind you usually fill with potpourri or lavender.

However, certain Squirrels are very sensitive to anything piney, or flowery, or generally perfumey...even a walk through the craft store can make some of us, a little nutty.

And sachets without any smell seem a bit pointless, don't they?

Do you have any suggestions for alternative uses, fillings, or variations that won't make anybody jump out of the tree? Pincushion stuffing is one that came to mind, although I'm not sure how many pincushions actually see much use these days...

Mint! Dried peppermint, wintergreen, etc. Or try any favorite herbs -- rosemary, lemon thyme, etc.

No, rosemary is right out--too piney. (The Squirrels in question can't eat rosemary either.) But peppermint might work--thank you!
