BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Field of the Invention

This invention of the pillowcase with an attached oblong fabric sack of lavender will help the patron relax when he lies on it. The lavender sack attached inside the pillowcase has a calming effect on the nervous system. Thereby aiding the person to relax and get a good night's sleep. The lavender also helps relieve anxiety, depression and insomnia.

2. Description of the Prior Art

There currently are pillows that are filled with lavender and even though this aids in having a calming effect, the scent can be too strong and overbearing which can irritate the person's eyes or breathing. There are also scented sprays that can be used on the pillowcase but this can irritate a sensitive person's face. There aren't any pillowcases that contain a detachable lavender sack. If the lavender scent is a little too strong, the sack can be detached thereby leaving enough lavender scent in the pillowcase and on the pillow which can still aid in the overall calming effect process. This herb is also safe for pre-teens, although the soft lavender might be a better choice for them.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

It is a pillowcase with a thin width, detachable oblong fabric sack of lavender or soft lavender that is attached to the Velcro sewn near the inside seam of the pillowcase. The oblong fabric sack can be detached when the pillowcase is cleaned. After the lavender loses the scent, the patron can purchase refills. This lavender scent aids in calming the nervous system. It helps relieve anxiety, depression and insomnia. And encourages calmness and serenity. It is also useful for respiratory problems.
