Headache Sachets


I tend to suffer from migraine headaches and a while back a friend of mine, Lois, posted an herbal blend that includes lavender, cloves and lemon verbena, that she said, when tucked inside your real pillow, would help shoo the migraine away. Fortunately I haven't suffered from one since making these, but a lot of my friends get these headaches, so I thought I'd make a batch of little sachet/pillows and send them out. I have a few stragglers here at home still but most of them should have been received by this point. I bought random pieces of linen in the scraps section at Joann's, so that part was easy. Thanks for looking.
Stamps: Papertrey Ink Borders and Corners (square), and an alphabet set
Ink: Hibiscus, avocado, Vintage Photo
Other: beads, fruit punch stickles, fabric, herbs

so pretty!! I'd love to have the recipe. I can get some killer sinus headaches. I've found the the Origins pulse cream Peace of Mind brings some relief. I'd love to try this.
