Traditionally eye pillows or dream pillows or eye masks are used for relaxation and to turn the attention inward. They were also used in hospitals and to relieve nightmares.
These eye cushions are filled with a mixture of linseed and lavender which spreads a subtle soothing scent. Lavender said to be a natural anti-depressant and it helps with insomnia, stress, and headache.
An eye pillow is now commonly used to protect the eyes from light and to give a soft relaxing pressure on and around the eyes. This helps turning the focus inward during savasana, relaxation, some yin yoga postures, meditation and yoga nidra.
