More than just an eye pillow. Each element has been considered in making these. Hand-loomed Ahimsa (peace) silk for the covers which are removable, the inner pillow is made with khadi cotton filled with organic buckwheat and vetiver roots.
Vetiver has a deeply restorative and calming properties, it makes a beautiful addition to achieving a meditative state for yoga nidra, restorative practices and guided meditations or as a lovely bedtime ritual. ‘A weighted eye pillow stimulates the vagus nerve which represents the main component of the parasympathetic nervous system, which oversees a vast array of crucial bodily functions, including control of mood, immune response, digestion, and heart rate. It establishes one of the connections between the brain and the gastrointestinal tract and sends information about the state of the inner organs to the brain.
This cranial nerve responds to the light acupuncture pressure resting on your eyelids and sends a message down the back of your neck to your chest and heart. From there, the message is then sent to your nervous system or abdomen. The message is one of relaxation and pleasure.
Each pillow has been individually dyed so colours will vary. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have specific preferences.
