This dream pillow is desingned for protection, strenght, restful deep sleep, and prophetic dreams. Allergy sufferes should wear a dust mask for this project and may want to leave out the hops. Susbtite jasmine for the hops if desired.
Handful of dried bay leaves, dried Egyptian chamomille flowers, French lavender buds, dried hops or jasmine, lemon verbena millein, rose petals, and Spanish moss.
1/2 teaspoon of chammiolle essential oil
1/4 lavander essential oil
1/2 teaspoon attar of roses or quality rose fragance oil
2 teaspoons Queen Elizabeth root powder
2 9-inch squares of fabric like fingham linen, hemp, mud cloth...
purple cotton thread
small scarab or Tet
Begin by making the botanical blend. Recite the following chant as you add each ingredient listed into one bowl. Except for the Spanish moss, crumble the ingredientes into small relatively fine pieces.
Sprinkle the chamomille and lavender oils and the attar of roses over the botanicals and mix well. Sprinkle the Queen Elizabeth root powder over the mixture and stir again. Place mix in a dark container and seal. Store away from light for 4 weeks, shaking contents constantly. Each time you shakle, reactive the magical quialities of the herbs by reciting
While working the herbs each day and waiting for the mix to mature, make a pillow case with the fabric and thread. When the botanical blend has matured, stuff pillow case with it and insert the scarb or Tet at the end, or save it to glue on the outside of the pillow. To finish, sew 9 knots onto pillow to magically and physically fortify your stitchery: 2 knots near the middle of the top and sides and 3 at bottom. Put your dream pillow into pillowcase.
