Rue leaves can be added to sachets to act as a moth and flea repellent, it was a popular strewing herb of the Elizabethans for that very purpose. The leaves were used by the romans, but today they are considered too bitter although they are still used as a traditional ingredient in the Ethiopian spice blend berbere.
