The secrets of good sleep pillow filled with herbs

Sixty six million eight hundred forty one thousand eight hundred forty nine

So. The first thing to do is to choose a fabric for pillows.

1. The fabric should be dense that the grass is not chopped.
2. The fabric should be natural — linen, cotton, wool, silk. I, for example, the easiest way to get flax and cotton. And the colors are very diverse. Pure wool and pure silk in our area to meet not easy, and at a cost they sometimes bite. Besides, silk is often too thin that maybe looks nice, but this pillow a) will shoot up b) can quickly be torn.

The second and most important herbs. Grass for the filler are selected in accordance with desires and needs.
Herbs should be thoroughly dried and in addition they must be fresh. Ideally, grass should be wysany without the use of chemical fertilizers. But at least we must find out suddenly, do not bring the gods, they were sprayed all sorts of rubbish. In this case the grass you can just throw away, if of course you do not want to get allergies, respiratory problems or dermatitis... Herbs need to grind and mix before use.

Feature herbal pillow that grass quickly become caked. Therefore, the basis for the cushion needs to be grass, which "holds its shape". And preferably neutral — sedge, straw, fluff, fireweed. However, I like Heather. But not all fees are fine. The pillow is kept small. A year or two is the maximum. Then we need to change. In addition, a great danger to this pillow damp. If the pillow was wet, dispose of it without regret, otherwise, harm from it will be more than good. Fungus, mold — it isn't even healthy.

At a time when you do not use a pillow it is advisable to remove in a plastic bag, it is necessary to ensure that the smell does not erode too quickly.

You can make a large enough cushion of grass and sleep on it, and you can make a smaller pillow and put it under his regular pillow. The pad can also be put on the battery, then its fragrance will spread throughout the room. Don't forget every time before you use the pillow to shake it. However, it should be remembered that prolonged use of certain herbs can cause various bad violation. Here, for example hops — very rasprostranennye filler for pillows, but has unpleasant side effects — sweating, anxiety, fear, fever, pain in the heart area, shortness of breath, may occur the phenomenon of chronic eczema. The aromas are also medicines and should be taken correctly!

Naturally, depending on the grass properties of the cushion will be different. Just as certain smells (like fresh bread or a fragrant rose) and leave you with pleasant memories, herbs also evoke an Association in memory. For example, the smell of thyme soothes and relaxes, clover — relieves fatigue, mint — enlightens the mind. Calming effect have flavors of rosemary and thyme — they are well relieve tension. Good smell of repacka, the aroma of which has an antiviral effect and is recommended during epidemics of influenza and acute respiratory infections. The smell of lemon balm improves metabolism and has an anticonvulsant effect. Pillow with the scent of lemon has a refreshing and invigorating effect. Pillow with the scent of roses has a harmonizing effect.
