Instructions & Fabrics for Heat Pillows
Filled with Organic Flax seeds and organic or wildcrafted fragrant herbs, warming them in the microwave provides a gentle, soothing heat and calming aroma to anywhere you put them.
They help aid in many physical and mental issues such as, headaches, sinuses, migraines, insomnia, stress, tension, cramps, joint pain, stiffness, muscle aches, other aches & pains and more.
Flax Seed is 40% oil, which never dries out and can be warmed over and over.
Other pillows are filled with grains which are mostly water and will not retain heat as the water cooks out of the grains.
Flax Seed is an herbal flower seed, not a food product, so they will not cook and develop a food like odor.
Flax seed filled heated Herb Pillows provides a soothing, Moist Heat which promotes healing.
The Herbs that are mixed with the flax seeds provide a calming aromatherapy. The fragrance is mild and strengthens when you heat it. The moist heat of the flaxseeds help the herbs keep their freshness and fragrance for a long time.
We do Not use essential oils, which could be irritating to the skin. We use dried organic herbs, which give a nice, mild, aroma-therapeutic fragrance when heated.
Flaxseed Pillows may also be chilled for a soft and soothing cold pack. Cool a sunburn, fever, hot flashes or inflammation.
Use a microwave to heat the pillows. Other forms of heating such as crock pots and wrapping in a heating pad may work but the microwave is what we recommend. Place in center of microwave so pillow never touches wall of microwave and the pillow is able to turn. Be sure the microwave plate is cleaned of food and grease. Place on a paper plate to protect it from any residue getting on it. Microwaves go from 500W-1400W , so be cautious to not overheat your Flax pillow.
Start at the lowest time and add 30 seconds more until desired temperature.
Never heat for more than 2 minutes at a time.
