What better way to relax, and relieve tension and stresses of the day, than with this soothing eye pillow. Lie back, close your eyes and let the soft, sweet, natural scent of lavender fills your senses.
Lavender has been used for centuries to treat various ailments from wound healing to headaches and is well-known for its soothing and calming properties.
Recent small studies have shown that lavender may be effective in reducing anxiety and improving sleep quality. A 2012 study showed that it may also be effective in easing symptoms of migraine headaches.
The Organic Flax Seed and Lavender Eye Pillow by Eye Pillow Vacation is filled with a combination of organic flax seeds and pure lavender flowers. It’s simply good design, softly contouring your face abd blocking out light, while the sweet smell of natural lavender fills your senses. Eye pillows are more comfortable than traditional eye masks and ideal for meditation, or for a soothing, cool or warm treatment. For a cooling treatment, simply place the pillow in a plastic bag and freeze for 1 -2 hours. You can even keep it in a zipper bag in the freezer. That way it will always be cold and on hand when you need it. It will retain all its suppleness and feel especially wonderful after a workout, to cool you down after a hot day or to soothe away tension headaches.
You can also heat the pillow for a warming therapy if you wish. Mist the eye pillow with water first, and microwave it for 30 seconds. Be very careful that you don’t overheat it, though. I suggest you press the pillow over the back of your hand after heating it to check for any hot spots, before putting the pillow anywhere near your eyes.
The Organic Flax Seed and Lavender Eye Pillow comes in a choice of either a silky soft fabric casing or a 100% organic cotton casing. It is generous in size measuring 9″x 4.5″ and it comes in a fabulous selection of colors.
Is The Organic Flax Seed and Lavender Eye Pillow by Eye Pillow Vacation right for you?
A lavender eye pillow is perfect for relaxing, reducing stress and anxiety, for meditation, to cool you down or to soothe a migraine headache. If you are a back sleeper you will be able to comfortably fall asleep with it.
If you want to use an eye pillow for sleep in place of an eye mask, however, you would be better off with a comfortable lavender eye mask here. Unless you are a back sleeper, the eye pillow isn’t really designed for sleeping. However, it gives off a wonderfully relaxing scent and isn’t overpowering in any way, so taking it to bed with you and keeping it close by while you sleep will give you a gentle and relaxing aroma that will help you to sleep soundly. What’s more, if you tend to wake up in the night and can’t get back to sleep, you can prevent yourself from getting wound up in a tight knot of anxiety by simply placing the pillow over your eyes and allowing it’s soothing properties to take effect.
The only downsides to the eye pillow are that you can only spot clean it. However, it is well made (in the USA) and though the organic cotton casing option costs a few dollars more than the silky fabric casing option, they are both priced at under $18 so are very cost effective. If you find the scent a little too strong when you first remove it from its packing, a good tip is just to leave it to air for a little while and it will soon settle and give off a softer scent.
Eye Pillow Vacation even offer you a 100% Money Back Guarantee and Lifetime Warranty.
To me, these wonderful eye pillows are an absolute must. I can be calm cool (well maybe not cool) and collected in the daytime, but catch me past the witching hour, and there is absolutely no (zero) reasoning with my brain. These lavender eye pillows really help to calm the mind and send you off to sleep. The 100% organic cotton, Black, and the Ultra Silky Soft Satin, Aqua are my two favorites.
