Soothing Herbs for a Restful Night’s Sleep

Hop pillows have long been known for their sleep-inducing properties, but more conventional modern herbal mixtures are just as effective and can also be used to give a general pleasing fragrance to a room. This mixture is a useful basic recipe, but any dried herbs of your choice can be used. Be sure to check out the other numerous sachet and herbal pillow recipes found in the blog under the Miscellaneous Category. Another wonderful and simple sleep inducing herbal combination is Grandma’s Lavender Sachets & Pillows, or An Herbal Pillow to Soothe the Nerves and Quieten the Brain
