This eye pillow is a triple threat: the fabric itself, the plants used as colorants, and its aromatherapy all work together to heal, replenish and restore. The raw silk fabric used for these pillows is textured, nubby and untreated and contains a substance called sericin, known for its ability to condition and protect the skin. The material is then infused and colored using methods inspired by the branch of Ayurveda known as Ayurvastra ("ayur" meaning "life" and "vastra" meaning "cloth") using two traditional Ayurvedic plants: manjistha (rubia cordifolia) and turmeric root (curcuma longa), both known for their detoxifying and health-promoting effects. These pillows are the perfect tool for meditation, relaxation, and as part of a healthy bedtime ritual.
