More about using Aromatherapy Eye Pillows for relaxation
Research shows that light pressure applied on the eyes, can lower the heart rate (the science behind it is the oculocardiac reflex – google it).
The vagus nerve is one of the cranial nerves that originates in the brain. It travels down the back of the neck, into the chest, heart and abdomen.
By stimulating this reflex and nerve, it is believed the digestive tract, our mood, heart and our rest-digest system can all be affected.
When combined with some deep breathing this small practice of self care can help reduce stress and sedate your nerves helping you relax.
Our balanced, light weight refreshing eye pillows for headaches cuts out visual stimulus including light sending a message to your brain that it is time to be still.
Relaxation is enabled through the pressure in your eyes. Nerves transmit a signal to the rest of the body giving it neurological permission to relax and helping to ease tensions.
The refreshing scent can help to penetrate your nervous system to relieve spasms, cramps, irritability and mental fatigue. Often used to aid in relaxation before sleep, this is a wonderful choice.
In such a busy world, allowing yourself to be still can help to bring a deep feeling of calm, instinctively needed for personal growth and happiness.
