I use a fair amount of aromatherapy in my house to help alleviate aches, pains, illnesses and influence the mood. Over the years I have found the wonderful results lavender can bring to my 4 year old. I have used lavender in many forms over year and every time I have used I am impressed at how well it relaxes and calms my child. Both my daughter and myself have horrible seasonal allergies. We spend a fair amount of summer and fall with ice packs over our eyes just trying to help reduce the swelling and puffiness. When the opportunity was presented to try out the lavender eye pillow by Eye Pillow Vacation in exchange for an honest and unbiased review I did not even have to think about it. Of course my answer was YES!
I was very excited to be chosen to try out the lavender eye pillow. We were sent a pink satin lavender eye pillow that my daughter tried to take off with the second she saw it. Peyton is very textile orientated so when she felt how soft and smooth the satin was I knew it would be a battle to get it back. When I first opened the package the lavender was a tad strong but I attribute that to being in a protective, sealed plastic bag.
Here are some reason you would want to use a lavender eye pillow:
~ Helps soothe and relax tired eyes and the aromatic effect of lavender help to calm and rest the mind
~Relieves irritated, itchy and burning eyes caused by over exposure to television, sitting in front of computer screens
~Sedates the nerves, relaxes the mind and balances the body
You can also use your eye pillow cold to help reduce swelling or headache relief. Simply place in freezer and when cold you are ready to use.
We have had the lavender eye pillow for a few weeks now and love it. One night my daughter would not give it up and she took the eye pillow to bed. She slept through the night! She rarely, if ever, does that. I attribute it to the lavender. For me, this is a must have in our house.
If you are thinking you want one for you own home, head over to amazon and check out the lavender eye pillows. They come in an assortment of colors, you are sure to find a color you love.
