those that are sensitive to scent. Cool, refreshing and blocks out the

grinder. Then place a spoon full of each in a re-sealable paper tea bag . You will be placing several bags in each pillow (between the flax seed). Lavender is a natural anti-depressant and is becoming well known
for relieving insomnia, headaches and stress.
- Make a small, tube shaped
or small, rectangular dream pillow from the fabric. Simply cut
the shape out and sew three and 1/2 sides together with the fabric inside
out. Then turn the fabric right side out and fill the pillow loosely with
flaxseed. (If you are making a chamomile or lavender pillow fill with equal
parts of lavender/chamomile -ground or whole- and flaxseed). Hand stitch the
last of the pillow together or use a ribbon to tie it off. The dream pillow
is put under a regular pillow at night to encourage sweet dreams and the eye
pillow is laid directly over closed eyes to soothe and rejuvenate.
