Eye pillow

Eye pillow

Regular price $20.00

This hand-crafted eye pillow provides the perfect amount of pressure to ease your tension and balance your mood.  The light pressure on your eyeballs lowers heart rate due to the oculocardiac reflex, and also stimulates the vagus nerve.  The vagus nerve is a central regulator of our nervous system, digestion, mood, sleep and even our ability to connect with others.  The EDEN Savasana Eye Pillow is made with organic cotton fabrics and filled with organic flax seeds, organic black sesame seeds, organic dried lavender and essential oils.  The outer covering, also made with organic cotton, can be removed to wash.  

When we cut out visual stimulus, our brain signals stillness.  Our bodies and minds are directed to slow down.  We suggest you use the eye pillow 10 minutes before bed.  Simply place the pillow over your eyelids and take deep breaths.  If it helps, try to visualize a light or a wave of water going through each crevice of your body, giving it permission to rest and relax.  Another suggestion is to use this pillow at the end of your yoga practice to enhance your savasana.  Or simply, use this pillow at any moment during the day when you feel overwhelmed, anxious, stressed or need more grounding.
