Wrap a hot or cold Aquarian Bath Microwavable Neck Pillow around your neck and
shoulders to ease muscle tension. Our neck pillows are free-form like bean
bags. This makes it easy to shape for use as a heating pad or cold pack
anywhere on your body. For example, the loose form feels great on an aching
sacrum or back when you sit with it behind you in a recliner. Use it cold after
jogging on your knee or shins. Some people like to take it to bed hot to warm
their feet on cold nights.
We can make your pillow with plain Organic flax or scented with the certified
Organic herbs that we offer (see drop down menu). Our Lavender Microwave
Pillows are the most popular. This pillow measures approximately 20 inches long
by 4.75 inches wide. It comes with a canvas washable cover (images 1-3) and the
interior pillow is flannel (images 2, 4). The scented pillows are 1.7 pounds or
heavier. The plain flax pillows are nearly 2 pounds or more.
Most sellers who are offering "Organic Neck Pillows" only use Organic filling.
Aquarian Bath uses not only Organic flaxseed and herbs but also Organic Cotton
fabric. The Organic cotton we use meets the highest standard for Organic
textiles, which is the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).

Care, Instructions and Precautions for Flaxseed Pillows by Aquarian Bath
Store your pillow in a cool dry place away from animals. If you are using your
pillow as a cold pack and storing it in the freezer, let it warms up to room
temperature and before heating it in the microwave. For single-layer pillows,
spot clean with damp towel soap and water or oxygen cleaner. Allow drying
completely before using again.
Warming your pillow:
Microwaves have different power levels ranging from 500 - 1650 Watts, or even
higher in commercial units. 1-2 minutes of heating is a guideline, but consider
heating for a shorter period if you have a very powerful microwave. Stay near
the microwave during heating. Place it in the center of the microwave away from
the microwave wall so it can rotate during warming. If your microwave does not
have a rotating tray, then stop halfway through microwaving, shake the pillow,
re-position it, and continue heating. This avoids scorching from hot spots in
the microwave. The microwave must be clean, because food and oil can also
create hot spots.
Flaxseed and herbs are natural materials that can burn when overheated. If you
overheat a flaxseed pillow, it could result in burned flax seeds, damage to the
fabric, or fire. Use less microwave time when reheating already warm pillows.
Keep your pillow clean from oil to avoid creating hot spots that could lead to
burning in the microwave. Keep your pillow clean from metal debris. A tiny iron
filing or metal shard stuck to the pillow or inside the pillow cover could
create a fire in your microwave.
