DIY: Aromatherapy Eye Pillows



Aromatherapy eye pillows are easy and inexpensive to make, and are a wonderful gift of relaxation for bridesmaids or bridal shower guests.  Each pillow will run just about or under $2.00, making this a fun and budget-savvy project!



Silk Fabric, Cut into 8 X 8 inch squares

1 Cup of Flax Seeds per pillow

Various herbs: Chamomile, Lavender, Peppermint, & Rosemary, About 3-4 Tbsp Total per pillow

Surger or Sewing Machine




1.  With fabric inside out, fold 8 X 8 square in half to create a 4 X 8 rectangle.  Surge the edges of the long side and one of the short sides together.

2.  Turn bag inside out and iron.

3.  Fill bag with 3-4 tbsp of herbs and appx. 1 cup of flax seeds.  A funnel may be helpful.

4. Surge or sew the remaining open edge closed.

TIP: Save the extra scraps of raw silk fabric to create ribbon.  Tie a ribbon around each pillow with a tag labeling the scent inside!
