Linen duvet covers for example provide comfort and a proven improvement in the night’s rest. And that’s why the linen eye pillows and wheat bags from Blästa Henriët fit perfectly into our range!
What is so special about a linen eye pillow?
The linen eye pillow is made from 100% linen produced sustainably in Europe and is richly filled with British wheat. You can use the comfort cushion for different purposes:
• To relax during yoga or meditation,
• For relaxation to soothe your nerves and reduce restless feelings and insomnia.
• To remedy your headache.
• To reduce swollen and tired eyes.
You can use the eye pillows in two ways:
By heating, this can be done by 5 to 10 minutes in the oven or 30-60 seconds in a microwave 600W. Then place the cushion on your eyes and relax. This works well against pain complaints but also to completely relax.
But you can cool the eye pillow in the freezer for at least 30 minutes. Do you have swollen eyelids or are you tired, this can really help you.
What is a linen wheat bag?
We do not know how to translate a wheat bag into one Dutch word! It is originally Swedish and there it is called ‘Fatty Herd’. It is an elongated pillow filled with wheat, that’s what it comes down to.
But what can you do with a wheat bag?
• A linen wheat bag is an ideal (flexible) alternative to a hot water jug. You can heat it just like the eye pillow in the oven or microwave.
• It is a painful shoulder, neck pain or abdominal pain, put the warm wheat bag around your neck or on your stomach and it will ease the pain.
• Do you have swelling due to a sports injury, for example? Then put the wheat bag in the freezer and then on the swelling to cool down.
So you can use the wheat bag in two ways:
• By heating for 5 to 10 minutes in the oven at 125 degrees Celsius or in the microwave about 1 – 3 minutes 600W. By using the wheat bag as a warm jug you can ease pain but also use it to relax.
• By cooling the wheat bag in the freezer, for at least 1 hour. Ideal for reducing swelling but also for cooling down in warm weather.
The linen cover is removable and can be washed separately. The wheat is in a cotton inner cover.
