These three aromatic herbs are the main ingredients for my herbal moth repellent. I have been drying and combining Lavender, Pennyroyal and Wormwood together for over 10 years to keep moths out of my woolen things, and to this day I have no moths. If you plan to grow and use Pennyroyal do not handle it if you are pregnant or nursing. It is very powerful stuff.
