Hand crafted flaxseed (linseed) eye pillows add a touch of luxury to aid relaxation and are great for yoga. Dried lavender (not essential oils which can irritate) may be added free upon request.
Each pillow is filled generously with top quality Australian grown linseed (flaxseed). The advantages of linseed lie in the shape of the seeds as they naturally form a flat layer giving a smooth, even and comfortable weight across the face. Flaxseed is longer lasting and retains moisture better than cheap, heavy fillers such as wheat or rice, and does not develop a cooked odour if warmed.
The underside side of the pillow is cool, smooth and comfortable. The cover is removable and hand washable in cold water, making it easy to keep fresh and hygienic for facial use. The seeds are contained in an inner bag, so no tipping out and re-stitching is required!
If you prefer essential oils such as lavender, sandalwood or chamomile, these are easy to add to the linseed yourself: just a few drops can be placed on the inner cover or syringed through the cotton lining directly into the seed filling.
The eye pillows may be warmed gently in a microwave for up to 30 seconds, but I do not recommend placing a hot bag over your eyes. They are great when chilled too. Place in a plastic bag and pop in the freezer for 10-15 minutes.
The Eye Pillows make a fantastic gift and are presented in a cellophane wrapper with instructions for use.
