I found this beautiful little pillow amongst my Mothers things when emptying the house. It must be 30 years old and used to be scented with dried herbs but has long since list any hint of them.
I think we must have bought it from the gift shop of a country house before we left this Isle. It has a Tudor air about it. Maybe it was Leeds Castle, one of my favourite places in the world.
When I did my Herbs for Health course one of things we made was a herbal mix for calm and anxiety.
Finally I’ve got the two together as I planned to revive the pillow. I’ve unstitched it to find the padding inside is sheeps wool
For their meat and bicoloured fleece. Many happy years were spent cuddling and feeding newborns.
I’ve taken the padding out and set the case to soak in some Ariel. Tomorrow as the Moon in Aries I’ll restuff it. Not really the best time in Pisces
I might add a few crystals as well.
Just washing the case and there are still some residual herbs inside that are are bleeding colour and goodness into the water .
Guess the previous contents are leaving their mark on the new generation
