Blessings be to you, the dreamerFor in your slumber, you step into new & magickal worlds!~The Surly Herbalist
Throughout history, folklore has told us that aromatic herbs can have a profound effect on our sleep and dreams. For this purpose, people have long since used dream pillows to meet their needs. A dream pillow consists of a sachet of herbs placed under the pillow of the sleeper.
Your dream pillow purchase will contain one handmade, linen, re-usable pillow sham and one replaceable inner herb packet (measures approximately 5" x 4") which can contain up to 5 herbs of your choice. When it is time to change your herb pouch, just remove it and slip in a new one.
**NOTE Each dream pillow sham can accommodate up to two herb pouches so a second packet can be added if desired.

From the earliest of times there was the role of the healer. The herbalist. The "Wise Woman". She possessed knowledge of healing herbs and botanicals which was handed down from previous generations back. As a healer, the wise woman was usually the first stop for the average person when they were sick or had a health issue to address. Of course in the Medieval and Renaissance era, the wise woman may have been called a witch or a heretic and discouraged from practicing her art as women were not allowed a profession in that time. This of course would make any herbalist surly as hell!
It is up to us to cultivate our garden.
