combine together in a bowl:
1 cup mugwort 1/2 cup rose petals 1/2 cup German chamomile
1/2 cup of sweet hops 1/3 cup lavender buds 1/3 cup catnip crushed
1/4 cup peppermint

Mix the ingredients together make cloth bags from a 5x12 inch piece of material fill
cloth bags with your mixture sew the top of the bag shut and sweet dreams!

A SPELL FOR PEACEFUL SLEEP These are hung by your bed to encourage a restful sleep and sweet dreams.

10 Cardamon pods 1 tsp. Salt 15 cloves
1/2oz peppermint 1/2 oz rosemary dried peel of 1 lemon
Light a white and pink candle, place them on your work area (kitchen table, counter top).
Crush the cloves, cardamon and salt to a fine powder. Blend with the herbs and put in bags.

As you are making the bags concentrate on peaceful memories and beautiful thoughts.
When you hang the bags by your bed say out loud:
Sleep be with me Peaceful sleep Restful sleep
Let my mind be eased Let my body be calmed
Wings of darkness Let the sight of night and dream
be clear, be quiet Let my troubles drift away and let me dream

Items required:
- scarf (white or cream colors work best) 4 cloves pinch of basil pinch of ground sage
- lavender or vanilla oil (whatever you find more soothing) black marker white ribbon
Lay the scarf out. You will be putting spices into it.
Place the spices (ground sage, 4 cloves, basil) into the scarf and add 2 drops of oil.

Gather the scarf at the top (like a moneybag) and tie it with the ribbon.
On the outside of the scarf draw the nightmare that plagues you (e.g. spiders, falling, whatever).
Place the scarf under your pillow and sleep with it there.
