How to dry your own dream pillow herbs

It’s easy to dry herbs. Just lay the fresh plants out on drying trays or cookie sheets in the sun. Wait until the plant is completely free of moisture to the touch before putting them in mason jars. Use dried herbs in the next year for maximum freshness. Make sure to bring them in if it rains!

Dream Pillow Herbs To Use

There are many herbs you can use in a dream pillow, but these are some of my favs. Use your intuition and see what herbs speak to you. Organic, non sprayed herbs are best. The amounts of each herb don’t need to be measured, but you can smell often when you’re mixing to see what appeals to your senses.

Lemon Balm

Lemon balm is in the mint family. It’s fresh aroma is helpful for calming anxiety and inducing sleep. With its heart shaped leaves, lemon balm is associated with the divine feminine and our emotional self.

This herb mends broken hearts and lifts the spirits. Lemon balm is truly a first aid remedy because it is the first thing I reach for to bring comfort and support with shock or trauma.


Rose is a classic that is said to add love and warmth to dreams. The scent of roses is a reminder to nurture yourself.

Rose is associated with Mother Mary, guardian angels, Lady of Guadalupe, Archangel Gabriel, and Metatron. Rose is a heart opener that helps to lower blood pressure.


Lavender is proven to aid in sleep, relaxation, and in calming racing thoughts and overthinking. It has a light, uplifting floral scent and is known for its sedative properties.

Lavender is named for the Latin word “lavare” meaning to wash. The cleansing aroma of lavender cleanses negative energies from others.

The vibration of lavender is good for connecting with Archangel Sabrael, Saint Germain, and Kuan Yin.
