Aromatherapy pillows are a convenient way to apply essential oils to your face without drying your skin. Our aromatherapy pillows are made in the USA from pre-shrunk, color fast, imported, hand dyed, 100% cotton batik fabric. Use pillow for aromatherapy (optional) application or as a warm-cool sinus pack. Each aromatherapy pillow is filled with 8 ounces of organic brown flax seed -- not plant materials, such as dried flowers or twigs, which are lumpy and lose their fragrance quickly. For aromatherapy application, some assembly is required. One amber vial of one of our 3 aromatherapy / essential oil formulas is included with each pillow set sold at retail to keep the oils fresh until you are ready to use them (see application) in the eye pillow, bath, or to scent your house. The cutout for the nose, hook & loop side opening, and zig-zag top stitching -- as well as the fact that they are sewn in the USA -- make our aromatherapy pillows more expensive than most to manufacture. We have not increased the retail prices of our aromatherapy pillows since 2002, although the cost of flax seeds continues to soar, as does cotton. Since we buy from various batik manufacturers, the weight of the fabric will vary somewhat. Free shipping: Cont US, AK, HI, PR, APO/FPO, US protectorates. We will deduct $5.00 from the shipping cost to all other countries -- see international shipping promotion -- or we will mail the pillow cases only (no seeds), to dramatically reduce the shipping weight and cost. Hopefully, you will be able to buy the dark brown flax seeds pictured above in your country at a natural grocers.

Seeds sprout in moist heat; they need to be refrigerated. For large orders of 1 fabric motif: allow up to 3 weeks for delivery.


Fabric: Is it organic?
 
The hand made batik fabric that we use is seasonal, meaning that the prints change frequently. And although the white cotton fabric used to make the batik prints are not certified oganic, because the cloth was boiled in scalding hot water 3 to 5 times, to set the colors and remove the wax -- meaning that the cloth was boiled and rinsed after each color application -- if there was any pesticides used to grow the plants, it is unlikely that there is any remaining in the fabric. Fact: No other company that manufactures eye pillows spends as much money on quality luxury fabric as we do ... and it shows!!

Aromatherapy Application
Remove the flax seed from the pillow and place it into a sealed container. A tightly capped glass jar is best. Open one of the vials provided. Add half of the amber vial of Just Relax ® or Stress Relief aromatherapy blend into the jar of seeds. Use all of the amber vial of Sleep Naturally ®. Allow the oil to penetrate into the seeds for 10 to 12 hours. Keep out of direct sunlight, away from heat. Shake the jar several times so that the oil will absorb evenly into the seeds; that way the fabric will not be stained. Using a large funnel, replace the seeds into the pillow. If you don’t have a funnel, roll up a piece of clean white typing paper. To refresh the pillow with more oil, follow these simple instructions again. To change the oil blend, buy brown, not golden (too soft) flax seeds, and repeat.

What is Batik?
Batik fabric is an art form that is widely-recognized in India, Indonesia, Africa and parts of Egypt. Translated the word means "drawing with wax" and "tiny dots." Batik is a labor-intensive, hand-dying process. There are three steps: (1) a wax resist is applied to the fabric; the wax design is hand-stenciled or hand-stamped; (2) the fabric is dyed; (3) the wax is removed by boiling the fabric in hot water. If the design is intricate and there are many colors, more than one process is used, and there are several dying steps. Because the fabric is boiled to melt the wax, hand-dyed fabric is pre-shrunk. When salt is used as the resist instead of wax, the fabric may have vivid bursts of color, a watercolor effect, or stripes. We use 100% cotton batik fabric from Indonesia and India that have loose, irregular patterns and tiny dots. We like to imagine that the decorative fabric carries the life force energy or good vibrations of the spiritual people (primarily men) from India and Bali who make it. For information about the type of batik we use, not our suppliers, please contact us.

Why Cotton?
We use only 100% cotton because it's a natural fiber, soft to the touch, it's washable and very durable. Most aromatherapy pillows (not ours) are made of silk or rayon. We think they look flimsy, meaning that they don't hold their shape and/or they shrink when washed -- if they're washable at all, which is unlikely. Many cotton eye pillows are made of coarse, inexpensive cotton, used for making patchwork quilts. Some have unattractive patterns that are either too cute or too busy / men won't use them, and colors that are too bright or patterns that are too busy / not restful. Quilting fabric, most of which is not imported, is relatively inexpensive -- about half the price of imported hand-dyed cotton. The weave is too loose, and it is scratchy against the face. With some (but not all) of our dark batik eye pillows, because more dying time is needed to create a dark print from white cloth, the fabric may be stiff (not scratchy). If you want our dark pillows to be softer, wash them first. See washing instructions.

Custom Orders:

   
 Machine embroidery | Washable fabric paint | Custom hand dyed fabric
    
  • We can embroider your logo onto one side of our of our pillows affordably and in low quantities.
  • Making a stencil and using a brush to apply washable fabric paint is one option to embroidery.

  • Two piece cotton strap w/ hook & loop or snap closure so that the eye pillows will stay in place.

Washing Instructions
Wash the pillow separately. Remove the seeds first. Use a mild soap without bleach for delicate fabrics. Use cold, warm or hot water; the fabric is pre-shrunk. Air dry; iron if necessary.
 
Warm or Cool Application
For soothing warmth applied to the face, remove the pillow from the reusable poly bag. Heat the pillow in the microwave for 30 seconds or less. Do not overheat seeds. For soothing moist heat, lightly spray mist the pillow with water before heating. Try pillow as a cool pack to relieve pain and reduce swelling. Put pillow into plastic freezer bag. Place into freezer for 20 to 30 minutes. Remove pillow from freezer bag; place on your face. It should be comfortable, not ice cold.

Storage
Store pillow in our reusable moisture barrier / vapor barrier polypropylene bag, tape closed, or put into clean jar. Do not store pillow with essential oils in plastic food bags. Oils will break down the plastic over time. Keep seeds away from sunlight, heat and moisture, or they will sprout.

WARNING

Our Just Relax... ® and Sleep Naturally ® aromatherapy / essential oil formulas should not be used by pregnant women. Do not use aromatherapy if you are nursing. Do not use our aromatherapy pillows with children or allow your children to play with our pillows; they could choke on the seeds.
