Flaxseed Pillows by Fran

Feel the Relief

Why do we use flaxseed as filler for our rejuvenating heat and cold therapy products?


Flaxseeds are 40% oil, which hold heat 5 times longer than other fillers, like rice, which is water based. You can reheat flaxseed pillows over and over, whereas a water based seed filler will eventually dry out and no longer hold any heat.

Flaxseeds don’t freeze like water based seeds so they remain flexible and hold the cold for a very long time.

Because of their oblong shape, these smooth hull seeds slide over one another better than irregularly shaped buckwheat hulls.

They also conform to your body better than round seeds, like millet. Flax seeds are about the size of a sesame seed, so they comfort every nook & cranny of your body.

To carefully preserve these properties of flaxseeds, there are just two things to remember about your flaxseed pillow: don’t overheat it and don’t let it get wet.

That’s the inside. The outside of our pillows are made with 100% cotton fabric or fleece, covering natural cotton batting.

What Customers Are Saying

“I have one of your flaxseed pillows and I like it very much. Since I get cold easily it warms me up quickly. In a Christmas card I received from my dearest, longtime friend and college roommate, I read her note about always feeling cold, even in her new house. I decided to order one of her pillows to help keep her warm as she sits or even as she moves around her house. I appreciate you sending out her pillow, it will be a wonderful surprise to her.”

” I just had a knee replaced and this pillow is perfect right out of the freezer and onto my knee. The soft outside can go directly on your skin and the cold penetrates directly to my knee, it’s perfect. Thanks Fran.”


“Best Flaxseed Pillows. I am a true believer in the benefits of a flaxseed pillow. I use one and have purchased several for others. The quality of the pillows made by Fran is excellent. I use mine for headache, sore muscles, painful joint or just stress relief. It is so soothing to curl up with one of these no matter what the ailment. I especially like to put one on the back of my neck as I’m sitting on my couch reading. It makes for an especially enjoyable experience.”
