Weighted eye pillows have long been used in restorative yoga and meditation practices. For a good reason. Light pressure on the eyeballs stimulates the vagus nerve, one of the twelve nerves that originates in the brain. This nerve is responsible for regulating important internal organ functions, such as digestion, heart rate, and respiratory rate, thus making the mighty eye pillow the ideal partner to encourage deep relaxation.
Using essential oils with the eye pillow can further enhance the experience. According to several studies, inhaling the aromas from essential oils can stimulate areas of your limbic system, which is a part of your brain that plays a role in emotions, behaviours, sense of smell, and long-term memory.
