The ultimate in soothing relaxation for your tired eyes could very well be a lavender eye mask. Lavender, widely recognized as one of the most soothing fragrances on the planet, can also help ease the discomfort associated with overworked eyes. If your eyes sting, or they look and feel puffy, a comforting lavender eye mask may be just what you need to find some relief.

Some people buy eye masks that they can put in the refrigerator or freezer and chill for added comfort. You may opt to purchase a natural lavender scented eye pillow that contains rice and dried lavender leaves, wrapped in a soft covering, made from cotton or linen. If your eyes hurt or you have a tension headache, lying down for a bit with a lavender eye mask can relieve burning, irritated eyes and calm a pounding headache.

Get Relief with a Lavender Eye Mask

Fortunately, there are little steps you can take to bring some relief into your daily life from everyday stresses. Whether your eyes hurt because you were up all night tossing and turning, or they burn due to allergies, a soothing lavender eye mask can put an end to your discomfort. If you are suffering from swollen or puffy eyes, popping your eye mask into the fridge or freezer for a few minutes can help bring down the swelling and return your eyes to their normal state.

Some people don a lavender eye mask while they soak in a warm lavender scented tub. If you really want the ultimate relaxation experience, you could also play some soothing music in the background, while you burn some vanilla/lavender-scented candles and soak your tired bones in a warm, lavender scented bath. Meanwhile, your eyes can get some soothing comfort from your chilled, lavender-scented eye mask. I'm getting sleepy just thinking about it.
