9 flowers under your pillow for a lovely Midsummer

The Midsummer night has always been surrounded by tales of mystery and magic. According to Swedish folklore, it was a perfect time to collect healing herbs and flowers as well as trying to predict the future. One of the activities that still lives on today is to put nine (or seven flowers) under your pillow at night. By doing so, you will meet your future spouse in your dreams.


We wish you a lovely and safe Midsummer weekend!
