Soul Food #78~ Lavender Eye Pillow~
At my yoga studio.. they sell eye pillows..I have made the little warm rice bags.. but needed an eye pillow..I find when listening to say..a relaxation cd or podcast on my IPOD....when they tell me to relax my eyes..It doesn't always happen..But I did notice that if I had a small weight on my eyelids ..they relaxed more..
So I used a Graphic's Fairy.. graphic..love her designs you know that.. I used the freezer Paper technique once again.. such a great idea....I see she has other techniques..one day:)...and sewed my own little eye pillow.. added some rice.. and essential lavender oil and lavender..
I don't warm it..it's just to have weight..It works beautifully..If you need one try it..very easy 4 straight stitches..and just a touch of hand sewing at the end to close the seams..
Give your stress wings and let it fly away. ~Terri Guillemets
With a little cup of tea..afterwards.. and a nice magazine or a good book..It's the best I can do ..:)
Footnote~: Imagine my surprise when my friend wrote..she does yoga at home..and told me she likes a weight on her eyes during the final relaxation period.
I was so happy she told me that.I stitched one up for her ..She lived in Paris once..so it had a little Paris dress on it:)She was happy:)
