Herbal Pillows
This page has all the information you need to care for your herbal pillows, as well as the options you can choose when ordering.


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.

Flax Pillows may also be chilled for a soft and soothing cold pack. Cool a sunburn, fever, hot flashes or inflammation.

Some of the Herbs that we use in the pillows are, lavender, eucalyptus, lemongrass, lemonbalm, rosemary, lemon verbena and chamomile.

Aromatherapy properties of the Herbs are below.

Fabric swatches below.


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.

Heating times vary according to sizes.

Mini: 3/12" x 7 1/2" - heat approx. 30 secs - 1 minute

Small: 4" x 10" - heat approx. 1 - 1 1/2 minutes

Medium: 6" x 12" - heat approx. 1 1/2 - 2 minutes

Large: 8.5" x 12" - heat approx. 1 1/2 - 2 minutes

Extra Large: 21" x 14" - heat approx. 1 1/2 - 2 minutes

Sleepy Kitty: 6" x 12" - heat approx. 1 - 2 minutes

Herbal Critters: 4" x 12" - heat approx. 30 secs - 1 1/2 minutes

* Store your pillow in a cool dry place, preferably in a zipper bag.

* When re-heating a pillow that is still warm, only warm it for 30 seconds at a time.

* When chilling your pillow in the freezer, protect from moisture by placing in a zippered plastic bag.

* If you get a stain on your pillow using Shout stain wipes may help remove it.
