I know the Barefoot Yoga Eye Pillow is technically supposed to be for your eyes which worked quite well and totally helped after a difficult yoga day but what really made me love this was when one night I had a terrible knot in my shoulder that I couldn’t get rid of and my first thought was of the silk eye pillow. I will admit the first time I put it in the microwave I was soo excited that the pillow got perfectly warm and stayed that way for quite sometime. The second time there may or may not have been some sparks due to the metal zipper that closes the pillow shut which I didn’t realize was there. I unzipped the pillow and put the contents in a bowl and microwaved that, make sure to use something that has a lip so it is easy to pour back into the bag. I kept the bag on my shoulder for probably 20-25 minutes and I was in heaven! My shoulder totally felt better and the smell of the lavender was amazing after being heated up. I use the eye pillow all of the time now. If I feel even the slightest bit of tension I warm up the insides and relax stress away. I am not sure if you are supposed to do this or if it damages the flax seed/lavender that is in the eye pillow but it is better than any heating pad or patch I have ever used. I like that if I want to add other herbs to the pillow I can because there is only a zipper and some silk between you and the pillow contents. The zipper allows you to to empty the contents and hand wash the pillow .
