Aromatherapy Eye Pillows Reviewed by CINDY JADOS on 2015-04-11 *****
I make these for gifts (sewn, not knit or crochet) & I have a few suggestions - you can fill with rice/lavender, buckwheat hulls/lavender or any combination & fill half way - they can be heated in the microwave for 1 min for a hot pack or cooled in the frig for a cold pack - use a natural fabric, cotton or silk, not synthetic as it could melt
