Barefoot Yoga Eye Pillow

Barefoot Yoga Silk Eye Pillow

Barefoot Yoga Silk Eye Pillow



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 .   Barefoot Yoga uses ceremonial sari designs for some of their eye pillows to add a bit of spice to their already awesome multi-purpose pillows.  There are more than 50 different designs/colors to choose from. If you need to relax for whatever reason or even want to meditate this silk eye pillow is totally for you and you won’t have to break the bank luckily for you the silk eye pillows are on sale right now!

Echinacea Angustifolia

Americans may have used echinacea for more than 400 years to treat infections and wounds and as a general “cure-all.” Today, people use echinacea to shorten the duration of the common cold and flu and reduce symptoms, such as sore throat (pharyngitis), cough, and fever. Many herbalists also recommend echinacea to help boost the immune system and help the body fight infections. Echinacea is well known for its anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties.

FENNEL Fennel Teas, or Fennel Water have been used throughout history to break up kidney stones, increase the flow of milk in nursing mothers, a weight loss aid, help with menopausal symptoms, quiet hiccups, prevent nausea, aid digestion, prevent gout, purify the liver, reverse alcohol damage to the liver, and treat jaundice. For babies, it is said to to relieve colic and flatulence, and to expel worms. It may be effective when used along with conventional treatments in prostate cancer (and it is worth trying, but consult with your doctor first). The tea can also be gargled as a breath freshener and applied as an eye wash. Alternatively, the leaves can be dried, pulverized into a powder, and made into Capsules for when it’s not convenient to utilize a tea.


FeverFewUsed for centuries in European folk medicine as a remedy for headaches, arthritis, and fevers. The term feverfew is adapted from the Latin word febrifugia or “fever reducer.”Feverfew is also used to treat menstrual irregularities, labor difficulties, skin conditions, stomach aches, and asthma.

Inhaling the essential oil in some cases has been reported to work as well as narcotics for inducing relaxation and sleep and reducing headache pain.

Today, many people use it to treat urinary problems during the early stages of an enlarged prostate (called benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH), urinary tract infections, hay fever (allergic rhinitis), or in compresses or creams for treating joint pain, sprains and strains, tendinitis, and insect bites.

VALERIANValerian is a central nervous system relaxer, and as such has been used as a calming sleep aid for over 1,000 years. When taken in the proper dosage, Valerian can induce restful sleep without grogginess the next morning, unlike prescription drugs that mimic it’s properties, such as Valium. It is an effective stress reducer, and has benefit in cases of nervous tension, depression, irritability, hysteria, panic, anxiety, fear, stomach cramping, indigestion due to nervousness, delusions, exhaustion, and, of course, nervous sleeplessness. It also appears to have real benefits in cases of sciatica, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, shingles, and peripheral neuropathy, including numbness, tingling, muscle weakness, and pain in the extremities.
