A Natural Sleep Remedy - Hops Dream Pillow

A Natural Sleep Remedy – Hops Dream Pillow

Getting restful sleep is essential for living your best and most vibrant life. I mean think about it, do you have much ambition or “get up and go” if you slept like crap and you feel exhausted?

The answer is no.

I have been a great sleeper for most of my life. On occasion, I have experienced bouts of waking up in the middle of the night and not being able to get back to sleep, but for the most part, once I fall asleep I am in a deep sleep until around 4:30am. Then I’m in a light sleep until I get up out of bed around 5:30 0r 6 am.

Besides working with herbs, I believe in having a solid evening ritual that will help ensure deep and restful sleep. You can get my suggestions on creating a goddess lifestyle evening ritual here.

What Is A Dream Pillow?

A dream pillow is a small pillow, usually no larger than 8×8 inch, filled with herbs that naturally promote dreams and sleep. Dream pillows date back to 16th century Europe when fragrant herbs were used to stop nightmares, ease restlessness or help evoke pleasant dreams.

Dream pillows are a type of aromatherapy. Being an Herbalist, I’ve made and used dream pillows for years!

As a matter of fact, I’ve made Dream Pillows for both of my sons when they were younger and had a hard time falling asleep. I always recommend trying natural alternatives to help promote sleep rather than going straight to pharmaceutical or drug store choices.

Dream pillows are safe for use with older children. However, I don’t recommend using them with younger children, as they might decide to open the dream pillow and spill the herbs everywhere. For little ones I recommend an herbal balm or spray that promotes restful sleep.

How To Use A Dream Pillow

The dream pillow gets tucked inside the pillow case of the pillow that you are sleeping on. The aroma of the relaxing and sleep promoting herbs will begin to gently lull you to sleep.

You might be wondering where to purchase the dried herbs, etc. to make a Dream Pillow… Well if I’m making a dream pillow, I purchase my herbs from the online retailer Mountain Rose Herbs or a reputable seller on Amazon. You can also purchase an already made Dream Pillow too!
