Herbal Sleep Pouches


Looking for homemade gift ideas for christmas to go with your actual gift to give a personal touch. Herbal sleep pouches are the way to go.

Materials needed:

1/2 cup lavender buds
1/2 cup lemon balm leaves
1/4 cup flax seed

3×5 light fabric pouch (ie. muslin)

Directions:

  • Mix all ingredients together.
  • Sew a 3×5 rectangular pouch, leaving a small opening to insert the herb mixture.
  • Fill the pouch with herbs, hand sew the opening shut. Don’t pack the pouch too tightly, you want the herbs to have room to move around and release their fragrances.

How To Use

  • Insert the herbal pouch inside your pillowcase at night to help relax and fall asleep easier. To help the herbs last longer, store the pouch in a ziploc bag during the day and place in a drawer out of light, take out and insert in your pillowcase each night.
