Scented Pillow

Get a cloth, two pieces, 5 inches by 9 inches each (scarves are lovely). Pick a pretty fabric that's not too fragile. Sew the pieces together inside out, leaving a one-inch opening on one of the sides. Turn the pouch inside out and fill with 1 cup flax seeds or small grain rice. Add scented flowers like lavender and chamomile or others, and you can also add a drop of your favorite essence or perfume. Sew or glue up the opening. You can vary the size with different sized pieces of cloth, to make it square, really big for a head, round for a seat or back, etc. It's a great way to relax with your favorite scent.
