Clothing is what covers our beautiful bodies up fashionably. Clothing can make us feel good and look good both inside and out. Sometimes though our clothing can also become food to pesky little moths. Moths like to chew holes in our beautiful clothing and wreck every wooly thing we own. One of the safest natural ways to prevent and keep moths from dinning out on our fashionable wardrobe is by placing southernwood into our closets and dressers.
Southernwood is a soft feather green leaved herb that kind of resembles soft pine branches with long pine needles. The herb has a piney citrus aroma too it like pine trees do and moths seem to dislike the scent of it. This is the reason southernwood can be used in our closets and dressers to keep moths from dinning out on our clothing and wooly favorites. Southernwood also gives clothing a fresh clean scent that is very pleasant and uplifting to some of us. Others can’t stand southernwood simply because they are allergic to it, but it is one of the best natural ways to keep those pesky little moths away from our wardrobes.
The best way to use southernwood to help prevent moths from pigging out on clothing is by sticking 2 to 3 branches of it into the closets in your home. You can even stick the branches inside dressers, baskets, and cedar chest to keep them away. Some people also like too use southernwood around areas of their home such as the kitchen and panty to help keep mice and rats away as well as other insects. Other people like to use southernwood in their gardens to prevent fuzzy critters from eating their freshly growing veggies, fruits, and flowers. I personally like to use it as decoration around my home.
Southernwood has all kinds of purposes throughout our homes from protecting our clothing to our foods and gardens. Just keep that in mind the next time you want to get rid of wardrobe eating moths to garden eating critters. There is no need for moth balls, chemicals, or traps when there is an earth friendly way to get rid of these pests and rodents naturally.
