A popular method
of herb magick is the making of dream pillows. These little coloured
bags of herbs will give a pleasant scent and will attract good energies
to where they are placed. They are traditional gifts for Imbolc. Any
sweet-smelling herb can be used in a dream pillow, as well as the ones
listed below. For best results, herbs for dreaming should be collected
during the waxing or full moon.
Typical mixes for Imbolc dream pillows:
The colour of
material that you use will also affect the dream pillow’s results. You
could use two colours of fabric, for combined meanings. This is what was
listed in the book, however each colour has a meaning, so if you want
something more specific, use more specific colours. Whatever feels right
to you will suit the purposes perfectly. Cotton should be used, because
it is a natural plant fibre.
