Can somebody please share with me how to make a dream pillow?

I would also like to know how to make those things (sorry for the technical terms LOL!!) that you heat up in the microwave/oven. They are like dream pillows but you use them as a heating pad, KWIM?? I know that my description isn't very clear :

Thanks for your help!!

I got some instructions with a recipe in a book in my bedroom. Saffron's asleep so I can;t get it now, but will later. The basic deal is you make a fabric pillow case & stuff it with herbs & sew the gap up. I think the ones you do in the microwave, you stuff with rice(?)

She is noly 17 months, but she picks it up and smells it and it is so cute!

Herb Pillow

For baby/child to sleep on, to get a good nights sleep:

Equal parts of each (2 Tablespoons):
mugwort, lavendar, chamomile, hops, calendula, rose, & spearmint.
Put in small bag, sew shut, & insert into a homemade pillow.

Sweet dreams!
