Cedar wood is nature’s very own insect repellent and has been used for centuries to repel cockroach’s moths, fish moths, fleas and mildew. Unlike the harsh, poisonous smell of moth balls or insecticides, cedar wood is non-toxic, and smells absolutely divine. Squirrel these pieces of pure cedar wood amongst your clothes, books or linen for peace of mind that they’re protected by the natural aromatic oils in the wood. And you don’t need to replace them as often as moth balls either, if they begin to lose their smell, simply sandpaper them gently to release another layer of sweet, fresh smelling wood.

Why cedar wood

  • Beautiful, fresh, natural fragrance
  • Non-toxic and natural as opposed to poisonous moth balls and insecticides which could be carcinogenic
  • Antibacterial and antifungal
  • Repels instead of killing insects so you won't have dead insects to contend with
  • Last for years (which makes them economical too)
  • Pet friendly
  • Eco-friendly – cedar wood is not endangered

The average lifespan of American Red Cedar trees is 150 years (with a potential lifespan of 850 years) and their antibacterial and insect repelling propeties are one of the secrets to their longevity, making them resistant to insects like termites, fungus or bacteria.

How to use them

  • Use 1 block per drawer or shelf

To reactivate your cedar wood, simply sandpaper them with fine grit sandpaper every 6 – 12 months.

Did you know? Mothballs are practically 100% active ingredient made either of naphthalene or paradichlorobenzene. Exposure to these insecticides can have a negative impact on your health as these turn slowly from solids to toxic vapour, which results in you essentially inhaling insecticides or them being absorbed into your clothes and linen. They are also dangerous for children and pets who may chew or eat them, even one moth ball can make a child very sick.
