  • How to make a sleeping mask. Relaxing Eye Mask - Step 1
    Step 1

    I started by cutting out 2 pieces of the basic eye mask shape. I also went ahead and made it a bit more girly by adding a ruffle. That's entirely optional on your part if you decide to do that though.

    Also add the herb or essential oil of your choice. Most women will prefer lavendar but I'll be using this when I'm in labor so I went with a lighter scent and chose Rosemary which I find to be very relaxing.

This is great! I've been wanting to make a new eye mask but I'd never thought of adding herbs and rice so it can be warmed up. I am going to do his for sure.

I'm glad you liked it. I was slightly inspired by a thread on the boards going on right now. I had one of these when I was in high school and had forgotten about it yesterday and I realized I had to have one for when I'm in labor (since I'm going in the night before my induction)
