                              Make a Lavender Eye Pillow


Lavender eye pillows are simple to make, yet luxurious to receive. I have been making lavender eye pillows for my friends and family for years and they are always appreciated.

It’s been reported back to me that lavender eye pillows have helped people sleep better and reduce tension headaches.

I like using lavender eye pillows to take a restful break during the day, and I also like to place them in my pillow case at night so I can be relaxed by the soothing fragrance even if the pillow isn’t over my eyes.

To make a lavender eye pillow you’ll need:

  • Fabric cut to 8.5” X 8.5” (I like silks and satins, but soft cotton, flannel, and knit also works great.)

  • Matching thread

  • 34 cup of flax seed

  • 14 cup of dried herbs (My favorite blend is one part lavender to 12 part chamomile and 12 part wormwood. There are more herb suggestions at the end of the article.)

  • Sewing machine (optional) Lavender eye pillows can easily be sewn by hand as well. The added time in making them assuredly means a more valued gift.

To start your lavender eye pillow, begin cut your fabric to a desired length and width. I like anywhere from 8 9 inches.

If you are working with a fabric that frays easily sew a zig zag stitch around the entire fabric.

Next, fold the fabric in half with the “wrong side” of the fabric facing out. Sew along three sides of the fabric, leaving the top open.

Now, fold the eye pillow inside out so that the right side, or pretty fabric is facing out. Fill this with cup flax seed. The flax seed adds weight to the pillow helping to relieve tension around the eyes. You may need to work with the amount of flax seeds if you are using different fabric measurements.

 Next, you can add about a 14 cup of dried herbs.

Once your lavender eye pillow is filled, fold the un-sewn edges in and sew along the edge to close the eye pillow.

Now a beautiful lavender eye pillow that your friends and family will love to receive.
