Chamomile is also a wonderful addition to your sleep pillows. http://opossumsal.homestead.com/Pillows/dpillow.html
Dream pillows have been around for many many years, it was common place for our grandmothers to stitch up a headache pillow to erase the pain of headaches or have a dream pillow on every bed filled with natures bountiful herbs and flowers.
100% Cotton or Silk Fabric 5" x 5" ( or slightly larger if you wish)
Mesh bag for herbal insert Herbs & Flowers:1 part Rose Petals, 1 part Dried Chamomile, 1 part Dried Lavender Essential Oils : choose any of the following - Yarrow, Sandlewood, Jasmine, Geranium, Basil, Lavender, Peppermint or Rose. 5-7 drops.
Needle & Thread
Cut your fabric into 2 pieces, one for the top of the pillow, the other for the bottom.
Sew the pieces together with the wrong side of the fabric on the outsides.
Sew 3 sides together then turn inside out so right sides are now showing.
Fill mesh bag with a mixture of the flowers and herbs as well as a few drops of essential oil. Insert into a mesh bag, tie off with a string.
Place inside your pillow form and fill with pillow stuffing...dont overpack as it needs air circulation to release some of the scents.
Finish pillow off by adding velcro to the open end of the pillow, this will allow you access to change the herbs and flowers when needed or to wash the pillow itself. Its best to keep the pillow in a flat shape not round. It will be inserted into a regular pillowcase for a scentsational nights sleep.
