Many cultures of the world find ways to slow life down and relax to not only restore one's energy and livelihood, but also to savor life! In Mexico, Spain, and many Central American countries, "Siesta" is taken every day around 4pm depending on the location. Banks, stores, shops, and even pharmacies close to have a time to rejuvenate and relax. Many people of these areas go home for a rest or nap, or people meet a friend for a drink, coffee or ice-cream. Life slows down so one can smell the roses. In the UK, afternoon tea-time is taken for similar reasons. People and businesses take a bit of respite to breathe and renew.
But the culture in the United States does not follow this sensible living rhythm, among many others,and as a result, we have some of the worst health statistics in the world! Heart-attacks, stroke, and many other ailments plague our society due to our inability to control our lifestyle. Eating and exercising are a large part of this, but stress is a leading risk factor in many life-threatening diseases. Even diseases that are not life-threatening, are worsened by the truckloads of stress we Americans put upon ourselves. Look at migraines, for example. While many other factors contribute to this miserable illness, doctors everywhere are quick to inform us that stress worsens and even causes this many times. We need to take time to relax!
Relaxation Eye Pillows
One easy form of relaxation that can be done virtually anytime and anywhere is meditation. Adding accessories like soft-lightning, candles, and aromatherapy can aid in achieving relaxing results and enhance meditation. Relaxation eye-pillows are a simple way to find some solace! They gently cover the eyes, and are filled with natural substances that can either contain gentle aromatherapy fragrances or not.
Varieties of Relaxation Eye Pillows
Our Relaxation Eye Pillows at the Boutique Butterfly come in two varieties both Scented and Unscented depending on your needs and likes. Some people benefit from aromatherapy, and other are sensitive to scents, so we offer both.
We offer Scented Eye Pillows that are filled naturally with flaxseed, chamomile, and fresh-smelling lavender. Each is then infused with lavender-vanilla essential oil and comes with a lovely exterior case of your choice that covers the inner muslin case. The lovely fresh-lavender/chamomile/vanilla scent is often helpful to patients who suffer from migraines and those who have trouble getting into the mood of meditation.
For those individuals who are sensitive to fragrances, we offer simply clean, flax-filled Unscented Relaxation Eye Pillows. They gently cover the eyes for rest without any scents to disrupt sensitive individuals.
