Dream Pillows

A great way to utilize the power of herbs, is to use them in dream pillows. When making a dream pillow, it is suggested (strongly) that you use natural materials such as cotton. Sew the cloth into a pouch, open at one end. They should be 4" to 5" in size. They then are filled with the appropiate herb according to the desired affect. Different colors are also used for different affects. The pillow can be of all one color or you can sew two different colors together. Once filled, sew the ends shut.
