Makes about 9 pillows
In connection with the Dark Moon Feast of Hekate, I made these Dream Pillows for stimulating the intuitive and psychic centers. I mixed the following herbs in a wooden bowl and left them on my altar overnight. The next day, I stuffed the pillows. I found cotton cloth of dark blue scattered with colored stars, but another dark rich color, such as maroon, purple, indigo or even black, would be suitable. Velveteen would be lovely, if you can find a large enough remnant on sale.
Ingredients and what they're good for:
2 oz Mugwort - Prophetic Dreams
I cut the cloth in long rectangles, twice the length of the finished pillows; mine were approximately 8" X 16".
This is NOT at all sweet-smelling, but it is a powerful visionary incense, to help take you through the gateway.
Place in a small blender jar (used only for non-edible processing), a bowl, or a pestle, several tablespoons of each of the following 5 ingredients:
The Nine Ingredients:
Sift together the first three dry ingredients, flour, salt, and soda.
NOTE: the honey, almonds (in extract), black poppy seeds, and anise seeds are sacred to Hekate. Personally i'n not fond of anise, so i leave out the anise seeds.
It is best to use a cast-iron cauldron, since one won't be too hard to get and it can withstand the heat. Don't use aluminum, since it sometimes melts or can even catch on fire. Never make an indoor fire in a cauldron that is painted, since burning or even very hot paint can produce dangerous fumes.
