Microwaves vary in strength from 500w-1400w, which means that you need to take the strength of your microwave into consideration when applying the instructions to heating your flax seed pillows.
Microwave: 1 to 1-1/2 minutes on medium heat; do not exceed 2 minutes. When heating a flax seed pillow for the first time, it is best to test how long it takes to reach comfortable temperature by heating in 30 second intervals. Turntable: make sure that the turntable is able to rotate during heating and reheating. Be careful when removing the pillows from the microwave. Reheating: when still slightly warm re-heat for only 1 to 1-1/2 minutes.
Freezer: place in freezer for 30 minutes to 2 hours or longer, preferably in a resealable plastic bag.
- Keep flax seeds away from moisture.
- Cover care: spot clean.
- Storage: Store your pillow in a cool, dry place, preferably in a sealed plastic bag.
DISCLAIMER: Be very careful not to overheat the pillow and place it directly on your skin. Allow it to cool if it is too hot, and only heat it for 30-60 seconds when using it on a child. Flax Seed Pillows by Fran is not responsible for operator’s error.

Why Flaxseed Filled?
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.
These smooth hull seeds slide over one another better than irregularly shaped buckwheat hulls. Because of their oblong shape, they conform to your body better than round seeds, like millet. Flaxseeds 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. Handcrafted in the USA!
