Introducing: The Lotus Root Eye Pillow

Do you see the woman in the photo above looking incredibly peaceful? Well, this could be you. I'll let you in on a little secret. The key to her state of relaxation is the eye pillow. Let me tell you what an eye pillow is exactly. It is a handmade slice of heaven. Eye pillows are ideal for relaxation and easy to incorporate into your daily routine. Personally, I use mine during savassana. Yes, I'm totally the girl who bring a prop to class. But hey, it helps me deepen my practice and focus on meditation. The all natural essential oils infused into the pillow help me calm down and truly feel relaxed. If you have allergies and you're worried about the scent, don't be! We have unscented eye pillows, as well. My favorite class to have this is, is restorative yoga. I like how the eye pillow blocks out the light as I center myself and set my intentions for the day. Plus, this helps relax the eye muscles!

Eye pillow options: 

1. Unscented: For those with allergies or sensitivities to scent.
Or - for those who like a little variety, add your own essential oils to the washable cover to change the scent and to get a different aromatherapy experience each time.
(filled with organic golden flax seeds. Choose "no scent, just flax" when checking out) 

2. Lavender (filled with organic lavender buds + golden flax seeds)
