THE PILLOW COVERS
Most of the 100% cotton pillow covers are pieced together using 1-3 different fabrics. The pillow covers for the Story Pillows (Multi-Purpose), and Bye Bye Boo Boo pillows are lined with 100% cotton (either with muslin or repurposed cotton).
Hand or gentle wash the pillow covers in cold or warm water. Air dry. The inside buckwheat pillow is not washable. If you want, you can iron the cover after washing for crispness!
I design and sew the pillow covers. Each one is unique, and individually made. The designs may come from traditional quilt patterns, or from different inspirations. No two pillow covers are exactly the same!
Pillows may be custom made, for an additional $5-$10., depending on the order. For all adult pillows, you will choose the size and colors you want for the pillow cover. We will communicate through email until you are satisfied with the fabric choices. You can also choose to have lavender, another herb, or no scent inside the buckwheat pillow. For Bye bye boo boo pillows, choose the theme and colors preferred. Bye bye boo boo pillows are unscented unless requested.
The buckwheat pillow is made using a strong muslin, and contains dust free whole buckwheat seeds, flaxseeds, and rice + herbs where indicated.
Lavender, chamomile, peppermint, sage, rosemary, lemon grass, eucalyptus, cinnamon, ground rose buds and petals, and balsam fir leaves. Quality essential oils may be added to the herbs.
Story Pillows contain whole buckwheat seeds and flaxseeds.
My Buckwheat-Rice-Flaxseed pillows relieve aches and joint pain in humans and animals. Use them to get soothing relief for the hip, shoulder, knee… The pillows are divided into three or six sections for easy wrapping and flexibility. Some of the inner pillows are split. The pillow is sewn, partially down the middle. 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 pillow covers are not lined, and contain the following:
Whole buckwheat seeds–
Contain rutin, a natural anti-inflammatory, soothes aches and pains, and retains heat well.
Flax seeds-The oil from the seeds relaxes the body, reduces joint pain, and retains heat well.
Soothes aching muscles and gives moist heat to the area.
Give off moist heat and retain temperature well.
The PET Pillows are buckwheat-rice pillows which contain: Cayenne pepper
Cayenne pepper contains capsaicin (for temporary relief of joint pain),
helps reduce atherosclerosis, and has anti-fungal properties.
©Flax for Backs pillows- are divided into four sections and contain flaxseeds. You may have an herb of your choice or unscented. The flaxseeds are soft and comfortable as well as provide moist heat.
Bye Bye Boo Boo pillows for children do not have lavender inside of them.
All cotton fabrics are flammable.
Please keep the pillow away from open flames.
