Trying to keep insects out of our clothing closets, trunks and drawers to preserve our clothing can be challenging with the options avialable on the market. Moth balls are very toxic, they also smell REALLY bad – gag!
The other more natural things, like little bags of dried herbs that look pretty, aren’t terribly effective (learn why).
Here is a quick and easy little recipe tip for help keep those nasty little buggers from eating your clothing. If you already have some of hose cedar shapes and the scent has faded try putting a couple drops of Young Living’s Cedarwood and Clove essential oils on them.
There’s also another essential oil that I think “might” be helpful in repelling insects, it’s called Palo Santo. It works real well down in the jungles of Ecuador, keeps the fleas and ticks away from my dog – so it may work at repelling moths and other insects??? Read more about repelling insects…
If you don’t have or don’t want to use wood, put a couple drops of essential oil on a cotton ball, and put the cotton ball in a lightweight fabric pouch, or old stocking foot and hang from your clothing rack.
For the best results, use a pure therapeutic-grade essential oil, such as Young Living – and enjoy the wonderful freshen scent!
