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
- 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.
- Put equal handfuls of dried hops and lavender flowers into a cotton pillowcase, and seal the end.
- Place the pillow under or beside your head to induce sleep.
