Hand picked and sun dried herbs and citrus peels. Organically grown in my own garden.

These moth-repelling and insect deterrent sachets help ward off moths and prevent from laying eggs in woollens and other clothing items.

You can refresh the scent by scrunching the sachets between your hands and giving them a shake.

Mothballs are toxic and have a harsh chemical smell.

I wanted to create a product that was natural as well as effective and avoid that awful smell.

I researched many natural alternatives and came up with this combination.

Ingredients:

Himalayan cedar - (Cedrus deodara) wood is aromatic and used to make incense. Inner wood is distilled into essential oil. As insects avoid this tree, the essential oil is used as insect repellent. It also has anti-fungal properties and has some potential for control of fungal deterioration of spices during storage.

Lavender – is a well known and respected natural insect repellent and it smells wonderful too

Lime, orange and kaffir peel - Citrus oils smell divine and are said to deter a variety of household pests. This chemical constituent responsible for this is a terpene called limonene, also sometimes written as d-limonene. This chemical is found in the rind of citrus.

Rosemary - Rosemary has been used for thousands of years against insects, and to protect food from moulds and mildews. The main acid in Rosemary oil has a repelling effect on insects.

Rose geranium - A study at Guelph University in Ontario in 2003 found that while citronella was 30% effective in repelling mosquitoes, rose geranium oil was 97% effective!

Cinnamon - A study published in the July 14th issue of the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry reports that the compounds in cinnamon oil are more potent in killing mosquitoes than DEET. Cinnamon contains eugenol, a fast-acting insecticide agent that counters moths, fleas, spiders, cockroaches, ants, flies, aphids, dust mites and several garden pests.

Cloves -Cloves contain eugenol, a fast-acting insecticide agent that counters moths,fleas, spiders, cockroaches, ants, flies, aphids, dust mites and several garden pests In a comparison of 38 essential oils against mosquito bites, clove oil came out on top.

Essential oils of cinnamon, clove and lavender. I have included these essential oils to boost the effectiveness of the sachets.

Sachet material:

To allow the properties of the sachet contents to permeate, but not release dust, I chose to use high quality filter paper.


The sachets are individually heat sealed.

I can ship this product internationally:
If your country is not listed, convo me and I will check the customs restrictions and shipping and add the country to the available destinations.


It is recommend to replace the sachets yearly for best results.
Caution - This product is not edible (Even though it smells delicious)

Wow! These sachets remind me of mulled wine or sangria. They smell absolutely delicious which, in turn, will make my clothes smell scrumptious but keep those dreaded munching moths at bay! Yay! I came across a moth city in my woollens cupboard recently. I think they were having debauched parties in there because now my woollens are rags. Sad face. Yikes! Anyway, these moth repellent sachets are well made and I’m sure they’ll fight the good fight. The delivery time was ridiculously long but that’s due to Covid stuff not our lovely seller :-)
