About Fran and Flaxseed Pillows



Fran Lindgren started Flax Seed Pillows by Fran in 2011. She had searched for a natural product for her own use after dealing with personal chronic pain, and to help ease the discomfort of her husband after his knee replacement surgery. Discovering that flaxseed pillows are a natural alternative to the conventional electric heating pads or freezer ice packs, she found that these pillows decreased muscle tension in her neck and shoulders and resulted in an overall better night’s sleep. Soon she began creating her product for her friends and family, and eventually her business grew to be known and loved by many!

Flaxseed Pillows by Fran are filled with food-grade flaxseed which means they are free of fillers, debris and artificial ingredients.


All products sold on FlaxseedPillowsbyFran are handcrafted in the USA.

What Customers Are Saying

“Fran’s products are absolutely the best! I purchased one for my daughter who suffers from migraines and she uses it on her forehead for relief. I have a torn rotator cuff and I use the large pillow to ease the pain. I place it in the freezer and then put it on my shoulder. It’s very comfortable and conforms to the shape of my shoulder which is great. Fran’s Flaxseed Pillows are A+++!”

“I have been shopping with Fran for more than a year. I can’t rave enough about her pillows! I love them. I have Raynaud’s (where my hands and feet are cold all the time) and these pillows are amazing. They stay warm for so long and help keep me warm for an extended period of time. I won’t go to bed without one! I have bought several and I love the patterns. The quality is outstanding! You can’t go wrong purchasing Fran’s Flaxseed Pillows.”

“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.”
