  • 1 part dried lavender
  • 1 part dried hops
  • 4 parts dried sweet woodruff
  • 2 parts dried lemon balm
  1. Mix herbs together and place the mixture into small, flat pillows made of tightly woven fabric such as cotton sateen (so the herbs won’t spill out).
  2. Seal and tie with a ribbon. Let your gift recipients know they can tuck the small pillow into a regular pillow for a relaxing night’s sleep.
