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.
- hand shaved cedar – cedar 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.
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.
sachets measure 8.5 by 12 cm
it is recommend to replace the sachets yearly for best results.
