Buckwheat-Rice pillows are simple in design, but wonderfully effective natural heating pads or cold packs. Narrow and long, they will bring soothing relief to your neck, shoulder, back, hip, abdomen, knee, foot, hand, just about any body part!
The pillow covers are made from 100% cotton fabrics, that are simply pieced together, using two-three different fabrics. Each pillow is unique. The covers are removable for washing. The inner buckwheat-rice pillow is not washable.
The inside pillow is encased in muslin, and can be divided into three or six sections for flexibility. Unless indicated, the inner muslin pillows are split, in that the pillow is sewn, partially down the middle. The seam is double stitched. The inside seeds and rice will naturally fall to either end of the pillow. You can manipulate the buckwheat, flaxseeds, and rice by moving the pillow to the position you want. The weight of the pillow brings extra comfort to the hurt area. The inner pillows contain whole buckwheat seeds, flaxseeds, and long grain rice. Unscented or choose an herb: organic lavender flowers, pine, rosemary, rosemary + lavender, sage, peppermint, chamomile, lemongrass, or eucalyptus. PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU WANT AN HERB IN YOUR PILLOW IF NOT INDICATED, OR IF YOU WOULD LIKE YOUR PILLOW UNSCENTED. Thank you!
