Top five ways to use an eye pillow

 Liberty London Strawberry Thief J Print Lavender and Chamomile Scented Eye Pillow | Holme & Moss

There are so many ways in which you can use a fragranced eye pillow to experience its wealth of benefits. Eye pillows can help to reduce stress and anxiety, improve sleep quality, relieve headaches and revive those tired eyes.

Our Liberty London print fragranced eye pillows can be used just as they are, heated or chilled. To follow our step-by-step guide on how to best heat and chill our eye pillows, click here.

Below are my top five ways to use our eye pillows, and how just 10 minutes each day can have a positive impact on your health and well-being. 

  1. Revive tired eyes

    One of my favourite ways to start the day is with cold therapy. Kate likes to embrace a cold shower, but I find it much more relaxing to use a chilled eye pillow! This is the perfect way to revive those tired eyes in the morning. Forget the pricey, disposable eye patches - I just reuse my eye pillow for that daily pick-me-up (it’s great for eye bags too!).

  2. Relieve eye strain

    My eyes often feel the strain of staring at a computer screen for much of the time, and Kate’s eyes are also affected by many hours of close machine and hand-stitching. So, when I’ve finally logged off, and Kate has put her needle down for the day, we allow ourselves just 10 minutes for our eyes to gain relief from that constant strain, enjoying total comfort and relaxation in the dark and warmth of our all-enveloping eye pillows.

  3. Improve sleep quality

    Heated eye pillow

    When it’s a struggle to switch off at the end of a long day introducing a warm eye pillow to a sleep routine can really help. We’ve filled our pillows with a beautiful blend of lavender and chamomile, - a soothing and calming fragrance that leads to a deep state of relaxation. I find I now enjoy a much more restful night's sleep, waking up refreshed and ready to attack that never-ending to-do list!

  4. Yoga practice

    Heated eye pillow, or just as it is

    During yoga, I often find it difficult to focus and to just be still in the moment. We’ve purposely made this eye pillow large enough to block out all light, and it’s perfectly weighted to gently wrap around the eyes. Ideal for yoga and guided meditation, and perfect for yoga nidra, I am now able to fully enjoy that amazing feeling of ultimate relaxation. 

  5. Relieve headaches and tension

    Tension is something I’m a little too familiar with, and this often causes me to suffer headaches and occasional migraines, where only a dark space will help. Our pillows block out all light, and are perfectly weighted to engage pressure points, helping to reduce any stress, relieve facial tension and soothe the pain.

The demands of daily life can often be challenging, and finding ‘me’ time almost impossible. Yet just 10 minutes a day with just you and your eye pillow can really have a positive impact on your health and well-being, with a renewed vigor and enthusiasm to face those challenges and demands of the day. So lie back, take a deep breath, allow yourself to unwind, and relax.
