Crafty Friday – a touch of the Irish part 2 March 19, 2010

I had intended for this posting to go LIVE on Monday’s Montage feature. Sadly after the events of the Montreal’s Saint Patrick’s day parade I couldn’t bring myself to do a posting. I hope that the city will beef up security and that we as a community will use more caution and common sense next year and I hope that it is a grand party.

Now that days have passed I share with you these fabulous items from Etsy, Artfire and Icraft,  beautiful Saint Patrick’s day items and glorious greens.

Enjoy,

Tara

Aromatherapy Eye Pillows March 4, 2010

Eye Pillow - Sophie's Garden in Green by BoutiqueKarma

Last year I expanded my line to include my aromatherapy eye pillows, and honestly they’ve become my best seller item. I made them for a few reasons, the first being that I was nursing my son and I suffered from wicked migraines.  I kept my eye pillow in the freezer and would pop it out on upon demand to soothe, relax and ease the pain. Because during pregnancy & nursing you are not supposed to take anything. My eye pillows are filled with equal parts of flaxseed, lentils and dried lavender flowers. They are absolutely heavenly. I recommend placing them in the freezer for 2 hours for ultimate relief. The lavender scent has a natural ability to soothe and bring upon sleep and relaxation.

I recommend my eye pillows for a great number of things: migraine relief, sinus pain, relaxation, pampering, meditation, bumps & bruises, etc.  You do not need to be pregnant or nursing to benefit from this item. It makes a wonderful gift and is completely natural.

Here’s a few fun facts about lavender:

did you know that Lavender Essential oil

a. has both Anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties

b. can soothe and heal mosquito bites

c.  can soothe headaches

d.  can be made into a night-time tea to relax and sleep

e.  can be used to treat burns

f.  is being used frequently in food:  honey, cakes and is used in the popular ‘herbes de provence’ herb blend from France

I’ve also created a line of BoBo Pillows (or boo boo), it is for the little ones who may fall and hurt themselves. They are also made to be cold out of the freezer to soothe all the bumps and bruises that little kids seem to have. Because it is not an actual ice pack, rather a pillow stuffed with flaxseed and a touch of lavender, they are soothing and cold, rather than painfully cold. The lavender also soothes their frazzled nerves. They are just a super popular item with kids.

Over the coming months I will be extending my Aromatherapy line into a full Spa line to include many bath and body essentials. I will update you with a link to this new shop when I make my new line live.
