These weighted eye pillows have a removable and washable cover made of hand
dyed cotton sateen. Used for stress relief, meditation and yoga nidra, the eye
pillow is like a weighted blanket for your eyes.
The pillows can be filled either with organic buckwheat hulls or flaxseeds and
you can also add lavender for aromatherapy.
=== Size ===
Pillow is approx. 8.5 inches long and 4.5 inches wide, weight is 4 oz when
filled with buckwheat and 6.5 oz when filled with flax seeds.
=== Filling options ===
You can choose from the following organic filling materials:
- buckwheat hulls;
- buckwheat hulls with lavender;
- flax seeds;
- flax seeds and lavender;
>> Buckwheat hulls pillows can be used as a sleep and relaxation aid. You can
also cool them in the freezer for 30-40 minutes and use as a cold compress,
which is really helpful for migraines.
I wouldn't recommend heating the pillow filled with buckwheat hulls - it won't
hold the warmth long enough, plus the hulls will break sooner.
If you are looking for a heavier option or for a hot compress, I recommend the
>> Flaxseed filling makes this pillow heavier and will help your eyes rest and
relax after a busy day. The seeds hold temperature really well which makes them
a perfect warm compress. You can use warm flaxseed pillow to relieve sinus pain
and nasal congestion.
To warm your pillow, place it on a safe plate in the microwave and heat with
10 seconds intervals, shaking in between. Keep an eye on the pillow while
heating it and do not heat for more than 2 minutes. Please be aware that the
pillow should not be hot - it's safer to wrap it in the towel before putting it
on your face and then remove the wrap when it cools down.
** If you want a different pattern or/and color, please contact me and I'll
make it for you.
The insert is made of cotton muslin. You can remove and wash the pillow covers
