This is the best dream pillow/blend book I have ever read! I was new to dream blends when I first purchased this book, and now I am blending my own. Lots of great recipes, how to instructions, and even a reference section complete with web addresses.
i really loved this book. it helped me and a aqatiance i really didnt get along with bond. the sacets were really easy to make. jsut a cheap trip to the local healt food store, and skrap fabric. and we were wwell on our way to controling our dreams. i foudn that actually i didnt really have corosponding dreams but rather my experience with them , was that it made my dreams more vivid and i remeberd them the neext day. s even if they dont help your dreams, they smell wonderful! great gifts, and a great project.
