An eye pillow for headaches, migraines or simply to relax?

An eye pillow is often used in combination with an acupressure mat or in yoga and meditation in the final relaxation Shavasana. It is a long, narrow pillow that you place on your eyes and is filled with natural, dried lavender flowers and flax seeds. It provides additional relaxation. It is often used for (tension) headaches or migraines. How does this eye pillow work and how do you best use it? We would like to explain it to you in this article.  

How the eye pillow works 

The eye pillow is filled with natural lavender flowers and flax seeds. The weight of the flax seeds exerts a light pressure on the skin and muscles around the eyes. This light pressure draws your attention to the eye muscles and thus provides a pleasant relaxation. The scent of lavender has a relaxing and calming effect, which can be very pleasant for tension headaches and migraines. The scent has an indescribably soothing effect and touches you with a feeling of well-being. 

Use of the eye pillow as a warm or cold compress 

It can be useful to use the eye pillow as a warm or cool compress. Especially if you suffer from red or tired eyes, a cold eye pillow as a compress is very pleasant. You can put it in the freezer for at least 10 minutes. However, if you prefer a warm eye pillow, you can heat it up in the microwave (about 30 seconds at 900 watts). The heat will also intensify the scent of the lavender. Try it out!  

Always make sure that you never put a pillow that is too cold or too hot directly on your eyes. First feel the temperature on the outside of your hand and then carefully on your cheek. Is the temperature right? Then apply it and relax! 

You can find different colours of eye pillows in our webshop. An eye pillow is a nice gift for yourself or for someone else. You are sure to find a suitable eye pillow in this selection! And the great thing about these eye pillows is that you can remove and wash the cover of some of them. And the ticking can even be filled with new linseed and lavender.
