These eye pillows are essential to a healthy bedtime routine and a natural remedy to help alleviate stress and anxiety. The weight of the pillow applies a gentle pressure to the eyelids which helps to stimulate the vagus nerve. This nerve helps to awaken the parasympathetic nervous system which regulates heart rate, digestion and mood. Stimulation of this nerve allows us to relax more deeply.
The pillows are filled with flax seeds as they create the perfect weight and they retain heat longer than other types of fill. The combination of dried mint and lavender make this pillow an exceptional choice for those who suffer from migraines, stress, anxiety, insomnia or chronic headaches. Keep this pillow next to your yoga mat, beside your bed, or gift it to a friend who could use a little extra self-care.
