Moth Repelling Sachets


This has a lovely smell, the cedar and lavender make up the bulk of the scent, but the clove bud leaves a nice hint of spice. Be warned, the smell is very strong and slightly astringent when the batch is freshly made. The scent continues to work for a whole year, but it mellows quickly; usually within a few days.
 
1 oz dried wormwood
2 oz dried rosemary
4 oz dried lavender
4 oz cedar shavings
½ tsp lavender essential oil
½ tsp cedar essential oil
10 drops clove bud essential oil
5 drops rosemary essential oil

Mix herbs and oils together in a large glass or metal bowl.
Use 1/3 cup of mixture in each sachet. You can use small organza bags, or sew your own.
Put 1-3 sachets in every place in the house where animal fiber or silk is stored.
In closets, hang one sachet from a hanger for every 2-3 feet of closet rod.
Mixture should be replaced completely every spring.
Makes 33 sachets.
