anyways, i want some comments!!!!!

thanks for reading/looking and here's a link to my shop ~

Original Mock-up of the information i will post in the listings for the pillows on Etsy. Obviously, this is a lot of info for each listing to contain, so if you have any suggestions as to what i could cut out, order differently or make more prominent, or anything else, please let me know! all helpful ideas and comments are welcome!!! Thanks in advance ^.^

~ The Natural Alternative to Medicinal Remedies ~
Aromatherapy Pillows from
+ Eternal Autumn +


- Tired of the side effects of sleep aid pills?

- Worried about the long-term effects of Acetaminophen and other pain relievers?

- Sick of sipping ginger ale?!

- Do you have an over-tired and/or teething baby?

These pillows have SO MANY uses!

Relieves pain due to arthritis, fibromyalgia, daily stress and strain, TMJ, tension headaches and shoulder pain due to tendonitis. Menstrual Cramps and moodiness seem to just melt away. Insomnia, anxiety and sleeplessness, teething or cranky babies are soothed by the scent, body aches and fatique melt away with heat therapy! Migraines, plus the nausea and sensitivity to light and smell that so often accompany them is aided as well! My pillows make a Perfect gift for New Moms! The nausea and morning sickness relief really does work, I used these scents during my own pregnancy! I only wish I'd thought to make these pillows back then ;)
My Pillows are Truly Unique! Let me tell you why…

First of all, they are made up of two separate pieces to make cleaning easy, unlike many other 'eye pillows' and the like, that you may find elsewhere. The natural oils from your skin, especially your face (plus any make-up you may be wearing could come off as well!), can stain satin and other fabrics that many pillows are made from and then you're stuck with an un-washable stained pillow! My pillows have a 100% cotton slipcover and an inner muslin pouch filled with either a combination of flaxseed and herbs or fiberfill and herbs (to your specifications). The outer sheath is machine-washable and hand-stitched with extra loving care using doubled 100% glace cotton Quilting thread to make seams extra-strong. All ingredients and materials are Guaranteed 100% natural and/or certified Organic.

All fabrics have been pre-washed in dye and fragrance free detergent. I'm always mindful of sensitive skin, having been born with it myself and having a young child of my own. {FYI} Slipcover is washable (of course), but I don't recommend you attempt to do anything more than surface clean the inner muslin pillow as water and detergent would destroy the integrity of the herbs contained within. I use a variety of fun cotton fabrics and welcome custom orders!


@}~ Scented Herbs will surprise you! The scent just lasts and lasts! I have lavender sachets I made in my childhood that still smell fabulous! But, if the scent is no longer as strong as you'd like, you may refresh at any time by adding a few drops of essential oil to the surface of the inner muslin pouch and allow to dry. This goes to for the unscented pouches as well, if you'd like to add your own scent, simply add a few drops of essential oil and allow to dry to the surface of the muslin pouch. *Please Note: This will have to be done more often to keep the scent fresh than if the pouch contained dried herbs.

Got Allergies? Pillows are made in a smoke and pet-free home!

*Not that we don't love animals but we, unfortunately, just can't afford the extra Pet-Rent at our apartment complex. *pout*

~ Your Order Will Include ~

Each pillow is detailed with a felt Autumn leaf contrast-stitched onto the backside-right corner. I use these instead of tags and purchase them from a fellow Etsian!

Each pillow comes to you ready for use or gift giving! Includes coordinating pouch and Hand-signed Instruction/Information Card! I recommend using the pouch for storage and travel to keep your pillow clean and the scent fresh. Ready for use at a moment's notice!

Each pillow measures a generous 4"x8" unless listing specifies otherwise.

@}~ @}~ Want a variety of scents for your favorite slipcover? Pillow slipcovers and filled muslin pouches are also sold separately!

~ How-to-Use ~

+ + Heat Therapy + + heat up to one minute, depending on strength of your microwave, pillow should be warm but not hot to the touch.


+ + Cold Therapy + + place in freezer or refrigerator for up to one hour depending on your temperature preference.


+ + Sleep Aid + + simply place pillow inside your own pillow's case! The scents will work wonders and you'll be asleep before you know it!


+ + Headache Relief + + simply lay pillow across your eyez and let the weight of the flaxseed and scent of the herbs do the work!


Choose from The Following Scents:


1. Headache/Menstrual Cramp/Body Ache Relief ~ combination of Lavender and Chamomile

2. Nausea, Morning-Sickness Relief ~ a refreshing blend of Peppermint leaf and Chamomile.

3. Sleep Aid, Insomnia or Anxiety Relief ~ Soothing Blend of Lavender, Chamomile and Hops

4. Scent Free ~ just specify fill type!

All Natural Herbal and Botanical Ingredients

*and a bit of corresponding information about each:

~ Soothing Lavender Bud ~

Historically, lavender was used as an antiseptic and for mental health purposes. Today, the herb is used for conditions such as anxiety, restlessness, Insomnia, and depression. Lavender is also quite successful in treating headaches through Aromatherapy

~ Mild Chamomile Flower ~

Chamomile has been widely used in children and adults for thousands of years for a variety of health conditions. The herb is often used for sleeplessness; anxiety; and gastrointestinal conditions.

*Please Note: People are more likely to experience allergic reactions to chamomile if they are allergic to related plants in the daisy family, which includes ragweed, chrysanthemums, marigolds, and daisies.

~ Relaxing Dried Hops ~

Hops are primarily used to reduce tension and aid in sleep. The aromatic properties of the herb will help one to fall asleep. Hops can also be taken to help relax the muscles and soothe anxiety.

~ Refreshing Peppermint Leaf ~

Used to treat morning sickness, nausea, nasal and bronchial congestion. Clears the mind, helps you focus and relieves mental strain. It can have a powerful stimulant effect on the body and also positively influence the mind and emotions. Also, the scent has been found quite successful in warding off insects.

~ Whole Flaxseed ~

The actual seed of flax contains 30-40% Flaxseed Oil. When the seeds are heated, the soft shell of the seed allows for moisture to be absorbed. As the seeds cool, a moist heat is released. Flaxseeds unique thermal and oil content allow for it to heat quickly and retain heat for 30-45 min, making it an ideal natural heating product! Flaxseed will not crack, weighs less than rice and adjusts comfortably to the contours of the body. Cheaper fillers, such as rice, tend to clump and will lose their ability to retain water after repeated use. If they dry out, they are more likely to become scorched. Not to mention, rice tends to have a 'cooked food odor' and flaxseed is practically odor free so it doesn't obscure the aromatherapy purpose of the herbs in my pillows.

~ Fiberfill ~

HAVEN'T DECIDED WHAT TO USE YET ~ SUGGESTIONS??? WOOL? COTTON? BAMBOO? ETC.???

as some of you know, my mother is a seamstress... and i've always said i'm the jewelry-person in my family. well, this isnt necessarily so. actually, i rather enjoy hand-stitching smaller projects and doing embroidery. and, as its rather.. no VERY difficult to make jewelry with the Sophie-mobile toddling about these days, i've decided to start stitching up some things to post in my Etsy shop.

nothing TOO fancy, mind you. things like eye pillows, christmas ornaments, sachets, pin cushions and the like... of course, i'll be making them in Autumn and Nature-themed prints and i'm thinking for anything that would be touching one's skin i'm thinking all natural possibly organic supplies only. i just planted some lavender out on our patio and if there's enough bloom before the end of the summer i may stuff things with my own home-grown lavender buds!


so... anybody think this is a good idea? i'll be posting these things in time for the holidays and they'll include free gift wrap just like my jewelry........... ^.^

thanks for all of your support thus far and i hope to get oodles of orders from this side project!
