Description

Anti moth sachets -

Hand made moth-repelling and insect deterrent sachets.

Sweet scented all natural.

Protect your clothing and crafting fibres. Woollen, silk, cashmere...


My sachets are a safe, natural and sweet smelling way to keep those pesky bugs at bay.

Use them in your drawers, cupboards, storage bags and boxes.
Keep some in your car as an air freshener.
Pop a few in your filing cabinets to ward off silverfish.

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

Locally sourced, hand shaved cedar wood.

Natural spices and Essential oils.

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

They also aid in keeping away silverfish, fleas, ants and other insects.

Several of the ingredients also assist in reducing mould and mildew.

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)

Additional policies

As with all handmade items.
There may be irregularities within each item.


The fibres that I dye myself are mostly colour fast.
Other fibres I use come from varied sources and I cannot control the dyes used in these materials.
Although I wash all my yarns after spinning, be aware that some bright coloured blended yarns, particularly those containing sari silks may bleed dyes.
I recommend hand washing my yarns with colours separated in tepid water with a gentle wool wash and drying flat in the shade.

I sometimes use whole fleece locks in my products, as these locks come from healthy farm animals, there may be slight vegetable matter present.

Please note that I do my best to ensure the colours of my items are represented in my photographs as accurately as possible.
Colours can vary on computer monitors.
