Back by popular demand, our best selling spring scent, Patchouli & Cedarwood is returning on Friday 1st September! This limited edition Patchouli & Cedarwood, also known as "Moth Magic” is your late-summer essential.
As the days grow shorter and the temperature starts to dip, moths seek refuge from the cooling weather by making their way into our homes. While they may be small, these unwelcome visitors can wreak havoc on our most cherished garments, linens, and textiles. But fear not, for we have a natural solution that not only protects your favourite knitwear, but also fills your home with a captivating, woody-citrus aroma.
The Science Behind the Scent
"Moth Magic" is not just a catchy name – it's a blend of powerful natural essential oils: Patchouli, Red Cedar, Amyris, Palmarosa and MayChang. These oils have been used for centuries for their aromatic properties and their ability to naturally repel insects. The secret lies in the residual scent they leave behind, a scent that moths find extremely displeasing. Moth Magic also features organic Neem oil; a natural insecticide that adds to the blend's natural moth-repelling properties.
Patchouli: This distinctive oil, with its rich, musky-sweet aroma, has been a favourite in perfumery for its unique ability to age beautifully over time. However, moths find its scent overwhelming and steer clear of its potent aroma.
Red Cedar: Known for its grounding, woody fragrance, cedar has long been used to protect fabrics and wood from insect infestations. It acts as a natural moth deterrent, masking the scent of Keratin (the protein that moths are attracted to).
Amyris: Adding a touch of warmth to the blend, amyris oil contributes a gentle, woodsy fragrance that complements the cedarwood. Its soothing aroma creates an inviting atmosphere while contributing to the repellent properties.
Palmarosa: The sweet, floral notes of palmarosa oil not only enhance the scent profile of "Moth Magic" but also offer additional insect-repelling qualities. Its subtle rosy scent adds depth to the blend, creating a harmonious bouquet that moths find uninviting.
May Chang: The bright and uplifting aroma of may chang oil adds a citrusy twist to the scent, further deterring moths with its fresh notes. Its presence in "Moth Magic" contributes to a well-rounded and dynamic scent profile.
