Eye pillows can be used as healing tools. Research shows that light pressure applied on the eyes, can lower the heart rate. The science behind it is the oculocardiac reflex – google it, it is so cool!
One of the nerves that originates in our brain is called the vagus nerve. It travels down the back of the neck, into the chest and heart and into the abdomen.
By using an eye pillow, the pressure on the eyes stimulates this reflex and nerve. The digestive tract, our mood, heart and our rest-digest system all react by slowing down. 
Additionally, the balanced light weight of the eye pillow cuts out visual stimulus. The lack of light sends a message to your brain that it is time to be still. And signals the rest of the body permission to relax.
For best practice, combine this with deep breathing to help reduce stress and calm the mind.
In such a busy world, allowing yourself to be still can help to bring a deep feeling of calm. This is instinctively needed for personal growth and happiness.
“This is a critical factor in long-term stress resilience and, research shows, in happiness.”
-Yoga Journal

More about the material used for our eye pillows.

The fabric used to create these pillows are made from cotton scraps. The textile industry is one of the biggest polluters to our environment due to excessive chemical use and large amounts of water used to produce the cotton.  The cotton scraps are ground back to fibres and re-spun into fabric saving new crops from having to be grown.

The cotton material is then dyed using botanical dyes linked to ancestral techniques with no harm to the environment or workers health. It is time intensive taking over 3 weeks, however this is a local craft worth supporting while also preventing harmful chemicals from entering the environment and potentially harming workers.

Produced in India under fair working conditions.

More about using Lavender for our eye pillows

Lavender is a wonderful harmonising herb that can help to balance the nervous and musculoskeletal system. The scent can help to penetrate your nervous system to relieve spasms, cramps, irritability and mental fatigue. It can also work as a sedative or stimulant depending on your needs. Often used to aid in relaxation before sleep, this is a wonderful choice.

To revive the scent in your eye pillow, simply squeeze the pouch to release the natural oils from the herbs.
