1. YOGA EYE PILLOWS WITH LAVENDER
Savasana is quite possibly the best part of your Yoga practice, it’s when after all of your hard work, you finally get to have that well deserved break, it’s an almost meditative state where your mind is calm and you notice your body slowly relaxing.
This ritual of Savasana can be enhanced even more by placing a yoga eye pillow over your eyes. The yoga eye pillow will block out the light from the room, releasing melatonin and that alongside the very light pressure of the pillow over your eyes will help you to relax even deeper.
Some yoga eye pillows are filled with lavender, lavender naturally aids sleep and can also ease anxiety - according to Cathy Wong a nutritionist writer with over 16 years of experience in her field, so placing a lavender filled eye pillow over your eyes can also have many positive effects on your mental state too.
We personally think that investing in an eye pillow for your yoga practice would be a great addition so next time you go to your class remember your both your mat and eye pillow and feel the difference.

Not only has she made it herself but she has also hand dyed it herself using natural dyes from eucalyptus leaves and iron water.
