The herbs for this pillow induce pleasant dreams and a good nights sleep. Simply place the pillow on your bed and let the magic begin. Pleasant Dreams Pillow
(use only dried herbs)
- 2 parts lavender
- 2 parts jasmine
- 2 parts chamomile
- 1 part spearmint
- 1 part red clover
- 5-10 drops ‘Healing’ oil from Astral Sea, Ltd*
- Cotton or Synthetic filler
- 2 squares of fabric, approximately 6″ x 6″ each**
Sew the fabric squares as you would any pillow, leaving an opening to add the herbs. Mix the herbs together. Add the oil & mix well. Allow the oils to absorb into the herbs for a few moments. Stuff the pillow with the filler and then add the herbs. Add more filler if necessary. Pleasant Dreams Pillow
Can’t Use an Herbal Dream Pillow? Make it a Pouch!
This can be converted into a charm by placing the herbs in an appropriately colored pouch instead. Skip the filler entirely. Just hang it close to your bed while you sleep.***
* You can purchase this oil online from http://www.incense4u.com. You can also substitute any oil with an appropriate name or skip the oil altogether.
** When I made these for my shop I choose a patterned fabric, usually a light blue with white sparkly clouds. Blues are best if using a solid color. P
*** CAUTION: do not place a corded pouch (one with a string closure) anywhere near your head or anywhere you or your pets can get caught and/or tangled up in it lest someone dies of strangulation. Use common sense please!
