These eye pillows are great at the end of a yoga session during relaxation (Savasana). They help to ease any tension around the eyes , allowing the muscles in the face to release more. And with a wonderful lavender scent, the aroma itself is relaxing too. They are so easy to make, and because they are small you could sew them by hand too if you haven’t got a sewing machine.
(Above is Banjo showing you how to use your eye pillow, although it only lasted about 5 seconds).
You will need:
- 25cm x 25cm square of plain cotton fabric (muslin or calico is fine)
- 55cm x 14 cm length of pretty fabric in either cotton or silk
- +/- 1 and a half cups of flax seeds or Golden linseeds
- 1 teaspoon of dried lavender or some essential oil
Enjoy and relax more often.
