Spells to Keep Away Moths
Spell Date: Tuesday, August 14, 2001
If you don’t want to use mothballs to preserve your winter woolens, here are some herbal charms that have been used for ages to keep moths away. The best remedy against moths, and indeed against many kinds of insects, is pennyroyal. Sachets made with this herb will keep away moths, and the essential oil is a frequent ingredient in herbal bug-repellent. Lavender also keeps away moths and other bugs, and imparts a wonderful fragrance to clothing and bedding. Cedar is excellent for keeping clothes intact; that’s why people use cedar chests. If you can’t afford a cedar chest, you can often find blocks of cedar that will serve the same purpose.
