What is an Eye Pillow?
Gain sense of Peace and Relaxation
An Eye Pillow is a wonderful tool that can be used to help a person alleviate daily stress and allow them gain a sense of peace and relaxation. An Eye pillow is typically a small bag filled with flax seeds, beads or gel beads that is placed over your eyes when you lie on your back.
How does it work?
The Eye Pillow works firstly by shielding the eyes from light and then secondly by applying either warmth or cool to the forehead and eyes relieving facial muscle tension. Eye pillows are often also scented with aromatic herbs to help clear sinuses and stimulate the immune system.
Eye pillows need to be comfortable to wear for long periods without discomfort. Better quality eye pillow coverings are made from natural fabrics; such as soft cottons or luxurious silk blends so as not to cause irritation.
