Healing Aromatherapy Neck Pillows for Stress Relief!

If you missed our MoonCraft circle this weekend, where we made our own healing aromatherapy neck pillows, don't fret! Once the circle was over, we finished up the rest of the extras, and we will have them available at our upcoming events for purchase.

Each one is crafted in soft 100% cotton fabric, and stuffed with rice and aromatic healing herbs such as lavender and lemon balm to soothe and relieve stress. They were then blessed and infused with healing energy and love. Some of the pillows also have an extra healing spell attached which includes a specially blended healing incense and essential oil which were also hand-crafted by us within a sacred circle of intention.

They are large enough to cover your neck and shoulder area or to be wrapped around an area in need of warm or cool comfort. They can be carefully heated in a microwave or placed in the freezer to deliver renewable soothing to your body and soul.

All proceeds from the sale of the extra pillows will go toward our Yo-Yo for Yule fundraiser, so come on down and get yourself one or pick up a gift for a friend. These are great inexpensive gifts, starting at only $5 for a plain neck pillow, one of these would be an awesome holiday stocking stuffer! There is a limited supply available, so you should come down and get yours soon!

If you can't get out to buy one and want to make one at home, here are the directions!

Cut a 10" x 18" strip of cotton fabric and fold lengthwise so the design is on the inside.
Sew 2 sides to make a long sack of fabric, turn inside out. Add your favorite dried healing herbs like lavender, rosemary or lemon balm. Fill 2/3 of the way up with rice or a combination of your favorite legumes such as rice, beans, lentils. Fold over and sew the open end to seal in the ingredients. Bless or infuse with your own healing energy or with the elementals. Heat in your microwave for 1-2 minutes, checking every 30-45 seconds so you don't overheat. This will depend on your microwave's power. Wrap on your body and enjoy the healing warmth!
