In the beginniong there are instructions on how to make a blend (selecting flowers, preparing them etc) as well as a section on making the pillow - its very easy - make a small bag, put in the blend then sew up the other end. I'm going to lok for really pretty fabrics that match the type of blend I'm putting in. one thing I find interesting is that there are no essential oils used -the author doesn't recommend them saying that they're too unpredictable and can create unpleasant dreams if they turn.
The recipes all have info about the specific flowers being used, and info on if the belnd was an ancient formula or what the source was. Its pretty cool. The book itself is beautiful - lots of wonderful drwings/colors - quite dreamy in itself.
I highly recommend this book - lots of fun!
Making Herbal Dream Pillows isn't a large book, but it doesn't need to be. It covers the origin of dream pillows, common herbs that are used in the pillows, and recipes for the pillows to have certain dreams.
The herbs may not be easily accessible at local stores, but you should be able to find most that you could purchase online or the seeds to buy and plant your own to grow. The different blends help the dreamer to have stress relaxing or peaceful sleep, romantic dreams, creative dreams, traveling dreams and more.
Overall, I found this book to be informative and really quite helpful for those who want to make their own dream pillows. I really liked the blend for "Inspiring Creativity" which can also help (at least for me) to get rid of writer's block! I highly recommend this book for all of the dreamers out there.
