    Aside from lavender which doesn’t grow where I am (tropical country), what other herbs can I use to protect my closet from bugs?

    Thanks in advance!

    Bay leaves work as much as lavender and the plant thrives in tropical climates. Hang a bunch in the closet and it’s good to go!

    You can also use dried mint or rosemary leaves in a sachet. Putting it among the clothes aside from just hanging it is also a good practice.

    Thank you @jamine and @Carol! I’ve never seen a bay laurel plant in our area but there are sachets of dried leaves for sale supposedly for cooking so that’s good. On the other hand, mint is common making it my better option.
