A BAG TO SMELL UNTO FOR MELANCHOLY, OR TO CAUSE ONE TO SLEEP
Eleanour Sinclair Rohde, A Garden of Herbs
Take drie Rose leaves, keep them close in a glasse which will keep them sweet, then take powder of Mints, powder of Cloves in a grosse powder, and put the same to the Rose leaves, then put all these together in a bag, and take that to bed with you, and it will cause you to sleep, and it is good to smell unto at other times.–Ibid.

For Valentines one of my gifts from J was a CD full of all kinds of herbal recipes, formulas and other stuff. I can’t wait to try some of them out. The cool part is all the old ‘English’ language that they used. Theres even a search feature for symptoms too.
