Wormwood and Sage Moth Repellent Sachets

THIS IS NOT EDIBLE. This mix of aromatic herbs will keep those pesky moths from laying the eggs that turn into the larvae which then chomp through your favorite jumpers. These sachets smell lovely to us - but not to the moths. Put a few in cupboards and drawers, alongside the clothes or blankets you want to protect.

Directions

Strip the leaves from the plants, and crush them finely. Mix together the rosemary, sage and wormwood in an open shallow bowl, and sprinkle on a dash of vodka.

Put a little of the dried herb mixture into the center of a small muslin square. Tie with raffia. Repeat until you have used up all the herbs.

Pop the herbal sachets into cupboards and drawers to deter moths. When they first stop smelling, give them a squeeze and a bash to release more volatile oils. Next time, they will need replacing.
