With so many scholarly and romantic studies vested in our quest for deep, nurturing sleep, andfor some of us, wistful longings for deliciously vivid dreams or the banishment of even a squeak of a nightmareits hardly surprising that Wellcat's Dream Pillows are clutched by the weary, sighed over by the romantic and slumbered upon by the dreamer.
Wellcats Dream Pillows are lovely, handcrafted packets filled with all natural herbs (no fixatives are added; essential oils are added, as noted, only in the Lavender & Eucalyptus Dream Pillows). To enjoy their benefits, toss one where you might rest your head for a restorative nap or tuck it inside of your regular bed pillow. The warmth of your head will release the herbal scent.
You'll discover that your dream pillow is made with two separate fabrics; muslin is used for the insert, which holds the herb or herb blend of your choice. Various beautiful fabrics, mostly silk tapestry, are used for the lovely outer fabric, which is sewn as an envelope-style cover in which the muslin insert is tucked. See column on the right for a view of colors and designs.
Our Regular size is approximately 5" x 8" and costs $10.00

Passionate Knights ~ For you or someone special who is looking for excitement even while asleep! Contains various herbs & spices reputed to have aphrodisiac qualities, including balsam, cinnamon, cloves, damiana, roses, rosemary and sweet marjoram.
Dreams Remembered ~ Recollection of a dream can bring enchantment or understanding. This blend contains herbs reputed to aid and enhance one's remembrance of your mind's nocturnal journeys: mugwort, mint, thyme, lemon grass and lemon verbena (which some say encourages visions of flying).
Pastoral Dreams ~ Instead of tossing & turning through the night, rest your head upon this blend of relaxing herbs. Reputed to soothe & calm, many of the same herbs in Pastoral Dreams are also used in capsule or tea form for anyone experiencing a lot of stress or for the weary soul plagued by insomnia.

Balsam Dream Pillow ~ The tradition of stuffing a little pillow full of soft, sweet smelling balsam needles has been around for centuries for good reason. It's a comforting, very soothing nap time companion.

Studies show that an effective way to appreciate the herbal effects of your pillow is to use it for several daysup to a weekthen tuck it away in an air-proof bag until you feel inclined to resume use (or simply continue with it until scent has disappeared; the natural essence usually lasts 8 to 12 months even with regular use).
