Directions

To dry the hops and lavender yourself, tie them in bunches and hang upside down in a well-ventilated space out of direct sunlight for 2 weeks. Alternatively, place in an oven about 215 degrees F until dry and crispy, about 30 minutes. Strip the flowers off the larger or harder stalks.

Put equal handfuls of dried hops and lavender flowers into a cotton pillowcase, and seal the end. Place the pillow under or beside your head to induce sleep.
