How should I care and store the iMind Pillow?
When an aromatherapy pillow loses its luster, refresh it. You may refresh it a couple of times before buying a new one. The easiest way is to use the essential lavender oil. Apply a few drops of lavender oil to the original sachet or use an essential oil spritzer.
Keep in mind that iMind Pillows are very affordable, so you may want to get a new one after a few months of use, or you may purchase refills from us.
What are the benefits of lavender?
Research has revealed that the essential oil of lavender may be useful for treating anxiety, insomnia, depression, and restlessness.
Some studies even suggest that lavender can help digestive issues such as vomiting, nausea, intestinal gas, upset stomach, and abdominal swelling.
In addition to helping with digestive issues, lavender is used to help relieve pain from headaches, sprains, toothaches, and sores. It is also used to prevent hair loss and repel insects.
Lavender oil is believed to have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties which can be used to help heal minor burns and bug bites. In fact, the word lavender originally stems from from the Latin word lavare which means “to wash”.
What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is the systematic use of volatile plant oils, known as essential oils, for the treatment or prevention of disease. It is a form of complementary therapy designed to treat the whole person, and not just the symptom or disease, by assisting the body’s natural ability to balance, regulate, heal and maintain itself.
Essential oils consist of tiny aromatic molecules that are readily absorbed via the skin, and whilst breathing they enter the lungs. These therapeutic constituents, next enter the bloodstream and are carried around the body where they can deliver their beneficial healing powers. Because they are highly concentrated, only a small quantity of essential oil is required to bring about results.
The practice of aromatherapy goes beyond smell. We believe aromatic plant oils have a chemical effect on the body and mind.
