Mothproof: Camphor has been widely used to protect fabrics and linen from the attack of these small insects. Unfortunately, in the last few decades a synthetic reproduction of this substance, which presents a high degree of toxicity, has become extremely popular: the typical camphor balls. People use it in drawers and cabinets, unbeknownst that it is a potential danger to children and pets that risk ingesting them. We highly recommended to always use natural raw material such as Essential Oil.
