Crochet Pattern: Sandman Aromatherapy PillowBy Emilee Gettle – 8 Comments
|I love essential oils and learning more about aromatherapy. Occasionally I like to put a little essential oil on my pillowcase before drifting off to dreamland. Since I travel so much, and don’t want to drag my scented pillow along with me, I decided to whip up this pattern. Simply slide the mini “pillow” inside your pillowcase before hitting the hay. The felt inside the crocheted enclosure will keep your essential oil’s fragrance for days. These little pillows, lightly scented with lavender, also work great in the pockets of wool coats in storage to keep moths away!|

Finish off and then fold the narrow ends of the pillow towards the center. Sl st each of the two narrow ends together, leaving an opening in the center and finish off.
Generously scent the felt with your favorite essential oil. Then, place the felt inside the pillow. Next, lace the pillow together with ribbon as you would lace a shoe and finish with a bow. (This way you can easily open and refresh or change the fragrant felt!) Sweet dreams!
