On Friday I stopped in at a little gift store to pick up my mum a last minute little Mother's Day gift since her real present hadn't arrived yet. While I was browsing around, I was caught by a delightful aroma wafting towards me and was drawn to these cute little closet protectors made by Thurlby Herb Farm, a farm located just a few hours south of here.
The smell of these little herbal mothballs was intoxicating. A mix of scented eucalyptus, mint, cedar and lavender, the fragrance was nothing like traditional mothballs. It was a little bit sweet, a little bit floral, and a little bit fresh. As I inhaled, I could start picking out the individual notes, but the combination was greater than the sum of parts. I grabbed half a dozen for myself and a few to stash in my gift closet. The packaging was adorable as well, and I think these would make great little hostess gifts or stocking stuffers.
As soon as I got home, in to the closets these went. I can't tell you how effective they are at keeping bugs away yet (I am sure they are!) but they are certainly effective at filling the closets with their delightful fragrance.
