Hops/Lavender Pillow For Insomnia

Yesterday I have seen an interesting show on BBC – “Grow your own drugs”. I really loved it and thought it was very interesting. I especially liked the self-made sleep inducing hops/lavender pillow. I have found the recipe on the website of BBC:

For a pillow about 32 x 23 cm:

4 handfuls dried hops flowers

4 handfuls dried lavender flowers

  1. To dry the hops and lavender yourself, tie them in bunches and hang upside down in a well-ventilated space out of direct sunlight for 2 weeks. Alternatively, place in a low oven (about 100C) for 30 minutes or so until dry and crispy. Strip the flowers off the larger or harder stalks.
  2. Put equal handfuls of dried hops and lavender flowers into a cotton pillowcase, and seal the end.
  3. Place the pillow under or beside your head to induce sleep.
