Each eye pillow is hand dyed with locally sourced plants, hand stamped with the Invisible Practices “timelessness” logo to create a sense of ease when you lie down for meditation, relaxation or sleep.
Roxanne has created a mix of dried herbs of lavender, chamomile and damiana and added a pinch of Himalayan salt for clearing and grounding. These eye pillows smell amazing!
- Lavender is good for curbing anxiety, insomnia and depression.
- Chamomile is relaxing and uplifting to the nervous system.
- Damiana increases psychic abilities by relaxing, clarifyin g and focusing the mind and supports dreamwork. It is also a mild aphrodisiac.
They are approximately 10” long and 3” wide and no two are alike.
Eye pillows may be one of our most powerful healing tools, especially when it comes to a balanced nervous system. Your vagus nerve is one of twelve cranial nerves that originates in the brain, travels down the back of the neck and into the chest and heart, and then moves down into the abdomen and digestive tract. Light pressure on the eyeballs lowers heart rate, sometimes by quite a bit, by eliciting what’s called the oculocardiac reflex. It also stimulates the vagus nerve. The vagus nerve has an extensive resume: It regulates heart rate and digestion, and it’s the primary medium through which our belly brain regulates mood. It’s the main communicator to our rest-and-digest system, which helps us to relax more deeply. It also elicits our tend-and-befriend system, enabling us to reach out and connect with others. This is a critical factor in long-term stress resilience and, research shows, in happiness.
