This formula was given to me by a pharmacist friend over 30 years ago when I was suffering from awful nightmares and sleeplessness. (The complete story is in my book, Making Herbal Dream Pillows, found on our books page). We have customers who buy this blend and make Dream Pillows from Veterans who suffer from PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) and they report wonderful results with those. We've seen this work with both kids and adults who have problems sleeping or nightmares, and the results are apparent for most people the very first night they use the pillow. This is the very best blend for people who have difficulty sleeping or suffer from nightmares.
