Herbs at the Mother Earth News Fair

The Herb Companion magazine recently attended the first ever Mother Earth News Fair. We hope you can...

The dried thyme in this herbal moth repellent is both naturally antiseptic and antimicrobial.

  • ¼ cup dried thyme
  • ¼ cup whole cloves (Syzygium aromaticum)
  1. Combine the herbs in a small bowl. Place a tablespoon of the mixture in a small cloth bag or tea ball.
  2. To use, tuck into drawers or hang in your closet.
