Herbalpillow bourette silk NYX
Handmade herbal pillow filled with Lavender, Hops, Mugwort (Cronewort), St.Johnswort (Joanswort), Passionflower and spelt husks.
All the fabric for these pillows are recycled old linens and vintage cotton. They are naturally dyed. The plants were all gathered in my gardens and my surroundings in the north east of Germany (Prigintz, Brandenburg). The herbs that fill the pillows were purchased in organic quality and locally whenever possible.
Herbal Pillows are traditionally used to calm down after a hard day or just to relax and fall into sleep easily. These pillows are scented with herbs that connect to the dream time, the ancestors and the other worlds. I recommend to write down your feelings and dreams after sleeping on these. Magic ahead!
Crush the pillow softly before using it so the aromatic oils of the herbs can escape. Place in a sealed container inbetween uses. The scent will last between 1 and 5 years.
All cushions are one of kind. Please choose from the options at the drop down menu and refer to the pictures.
Size approx. 18 x 18 cm
Natural dyes can fade quicker than chemical dyes. But not all of them do and all fade beautifully. In my dyeing process I do not use any harmful substances and all plant material is put on the compost. Many plants are gathered in my surroundings or I use organic plant dye extracts. The dye gets fully exhausted and nothing is wasted. Also I use every little piece of fabric to do these patchworks. An all natural product.
