We fill these smooth satin eye pillows with about half a pound of food grade, organic flax and if you order the scented a bit of lavender for just the right amount of gentle, room darkening pressure on the eyes. Both darkness and gentle pressure are cues to our autonomic nervous system to trigger the parasympathetic response. Involuntarily we will experience a slowing of the heart rate, elongated breathing and relaxed muscles. Deep relaxation is therby enhanced by these lovely 3 inch by 8 inch pillows.

1) A one piece pillow with sewn ends unscented.
2) A one piece pillow with sewn ends with lavender.
3)A two piece pillow with a muslin insert in a washable satin cover unscented.
4)A two piece pillow with a muslin insert in a washable satin cover scented with lavender.
