Sachets were used long ago as a symbol to prevent diseases and parasites. This was given to me from my mom a year ago and I carry it around everywhere I go. Not only is this a symbol to me, it is something that I hold a personal value to. I don't get to see my mom that often, so this sachet reminds me of her. When I am stressed out or struggling, it helps to have the sachet with me, as a reminder that although she is not with me physically, she will always be there for me.
