Ashé Eye Pillow
Ashé Eye Pillow
Ashé is a West African concept that engenders the power inherent in each of us to transform, transcend, and attune to our highest purpose.
This Lotus Silk Eye Pillow was made in collaboration with yoga teacher, Tamika Caston-Miller (she/her).
Tamika is the director of Ashé Yoga at The Ranch Houston (@ashe_yoga + @theranchhtx). She offers nature-immersive yoga practices in service of collective healing. Her trauma-informed offerings are rooted in ancestral remembering, rest and somatics in support of intersectional communities.
With the purchase of this eye pillow you'll get to enjoy a Yoga Nidra guided by Tamika, so you may find ease and vision in less than 20 minutes.
Tamika envisioned a soft pink for these eye pillows because of the color's soft, intuitive, easeful and beautiful energy.
With a resourceful eye, food waste was the obvious ingredient to dyeing the lotus silk fabric. It was especially fun to make this with an urban farmer who grows food sustainably.
The pink color was achieve with natural dye from avocado pits!
EYE PILLOW MAGIC
The cover is made from vegan plant-based silk (made of fibrous strands from the lotus stem).
Filled with organic flax seed, rose quartz crystal powder and your choice of stress-reducing aromatherapy herbs.
The Rose Quartz crystal powder was made out of gemstones that broke in transit and could not be sold. Instead of letting pre-mined crystals go to waste, they were hand-crushed into fine powder and added to these eye pillows.
Your choice of organic herbs:
- Lavender or Chamomile - Anxiety Relief & Relaxation
- Rosemary or Peppermint - Clarity & Concentration
Each Eye Pillow is handmade with it's own unique charm. Expect slight variations from the photographed versions.
HOW TO USE
Uniquely sewn to:
- relieve tension across forehead & temples
- reduce direct pressure on the eyes for longer periods of rest
- enhance the aromatherapy with herbs concentrated around your nose
Store it in the refrigerator to reduce puffy eyes or heat in the microwave for 45 seconds to quite a busy mind, relax stressed eyes, and for help falling asleep.
