Here at Lavender Way, we use a variety of herbs as fill for our Herbal Sachets, Dream Pillows and other items. Lavender, of course, is available all on its own, and ours is 100% organic and pesticide free. Also available are two herb mixtures designed to promote a more restful, peaceful sleep. The Restful Dreams recipe includes Roses, Mugwort, Sweet Marjoram and Hops, while our Pleasant Dreams Recipe is crafted from Roses, Mugwort, Lavender, Sweet Marjoram and Mint. Below you'll find some interesting details about the historical use of each herb, their effective properties, as well as lovely images of each.
Hops have a long reputation as a sedative and as a preservative to brewers. Image Source
In the Middle Ages, it was thought to be an herb of love. It has modest abilities as a medicinal herb, used to relieve headaches and revive those with "nervous languor." Image Source
MARJORAM (aka Sweet Marjoram)
Once the plant that sanctified marital bliss, as its name suggests, a gentle, subtly perfumed calming herb. Image Source
This herb, fresh or dried, is an excellent aromatic. "The Smelle rejoiceth the heart of man," wrote sixteenth century herbalist John Gerand. Image Source
Europeans once believed this aromatic herb would bring good and vivid dreams. Mugwort leaves have a sage like smell. Image Source
When Cleopatra invited Mark Anthony to her palace, she had the floors covered knee-deep in rose petals, such was her belief in the romantic powers of their perfume. Image Source
Traditional Herbalist Gathering Rules
Interpreting adages from days gone by.
These rules derive from the texts of Pliny, Magnus, and Tusser and were handed down through the centuries, traditionally practiced mostly by the Druids of old. Each component of the ritual is required to be conducted as indicated if the herb is expected to retain its full power when used.
