DIY Eye Pillow for Meditation, Yoga, Relaxation

Make your own washable eye pillow for meditation. Great for final relaxation in yoga. Filled with flaxseed and lavender, or herbs of your choice. Intended for short periods of use of about 20 minutes. If pillow is too heavy is can cause temporary blurry vision if it sits on the eyes too long! You can spread the seeds out so they are more around the exterior of the eye sockets to be sure!
9 x 9 inch square cotton fabric for pillow
10 x 10 inch square of patterned fabric for pillow case
1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups flaxseeds (not ground)
lavender or dry herbs of your choice

Flaxseed provides a gentle, moist heat which promotes healing.
Flaxseeds are flower seeds, rather than grains, so they contain 30-40% oil which remains inside the seed to be warmed again and again. Other products lose their ability to retain heat as the water cooks out of them over time.
When heated, flaxseed pillows retain half their heat after an hour. Under covers (think about those toes…) the pillow will still be warm hours later.
Flax never has that “cooked grain” smell other grain based products have when heated over and over again.
The weight of flaxseed is gentle and comforting.
Flaxseed pillows can also be chilled in the freezer to sooth fevers or slight inflammations, though they don’t get cold enough to provide the numbness needed for things like sprains and back injuries.
