Fever - Pillowcase
This beautiful handmade decorative pillowcase is inspired by an old remedy for fever.
Drawings by Ingibjorg Birgisdottir of Icelandic medicinal herbs that form the remedy for fever. The remedies are taken from an old Icelandic book called Íslenskir Þjóðhættir:
“If someone suddenly took ill from fever or some other sudden illness, the first thing was to try to make him sweat it out by giving him a good amount of a concoction of Juniper berry oil, turpentine- or anise oil, then tuck him under several thick blankets and make him cover his head.”
