What are the ingredients inside a Mother Earth Pillows?

Mother Earth Pillows are filled with food-grade Golden Flaxseed combined with our proprietary Herbal Blends.  We manufacture our products in the United States using all-natural ingredients - Golden Flax, dried herbs, Himalayan Salt (salt pillows only), 100% cotton fabrics and recyclable/reusable packaging.

Our Buckwheat Hull Pillows are made with buckwheat hull (No Herbs).

Can I freeze Mother Earth Pillows?

Absolutely! Store pillows in a sealed plastic bag and place in the freezer for several hours. Chilled pillow can be placed directly on bare skin and conforms comfortably to the body area for optimum cold application.

How long do I warm Mother Earth Pillows?

WARNING:   OVERHEATING AND MOISTURE EXPOSURE TO THE PILLOW will negatively impact your pillow and it will no longer be usable.    Mother Earth Pillows recommends warming your pillows in a towel warmer and secondly by microwave.  We recommend the Elite Towel Cabi which is available on our website. 

If you choose to use a microwave oven, the warming time of the Mother Earth Pillow greatly depends on the size of the pillow and the power of your microwave.  Instructions are included with all of our pillows.  Larger pillows  (Large Shoulder Triggerpoint Pillows, Large Heartbeat, Large Flax, Large Sensory) microwave for 2-3 minutes.   It is important the pillow moves freely and does not touch the inner sides of the microwave to avoid "hot spots" or scorching the flax seed.  Additional 30 second warming intervals help create the desired temperature level.  

Smaller Pillows (Little Comfort Heart, Small Flax, Cuddle Pillows, Small Sensory), microwave for 1 minute and then for 15-second intervals until you reach a desired temperature level.    Again, AVOID OVERHEATING!

If additional warmth is desired as pillow begins to cool, RE-HEAT at 30 seconds intervals. Microwave power ranges from 500W to 1500W so heating times should be adjusted according to your unit. Always test before using.

How long do Mother Earth Pillows stay warm?

Mother Earth Pillows stay warm for approximately 30-40 minutes.  Because our ingredients include Golden Flaxseed's  natural oils, these natural oils hold heat/cold longer than other similar fill products. 

How long do the herbal scents in the pillow last?

Our proprietary Herbal Blends can last more than six months. We do provide herbal blend Essential Oil spritzers to refresh your pillow. Click HERE to view our oils and spritzers.

Tell me about your Herbal Blends?

Mother Earth Pillows are offered in  three different proprietary Herbal Blends that are mixed on-site in our production facility.  Not all pillows are available in all three Herbal Blends.  We also offer pillows with No Herb for those are sensitive to natural aromas.  

Breathe - This proprietary blend may ease congestion and soothe aches associated with asthma, sinus infections, bronchitis, colds and flu.
Contains Eucalyptus, peppermint, spearmint, lemon balm, rosemary, lavender, anise and clove.

Relieve - This proprietary blend is meant to uplift, invigorate and clear thinking with lavender to "soothe the soul." Best choice for migraine relief and aching hands and feet.

Soothe - This proprietary blend helps to calm, sooth and relax and helps relieve muscular aching and tension.

No Herb - For those with aroma sensitivities, no herbs are added to the pillow.  The value of a flax seed pillow is not diminished as the weight of the pillow either warmed or chilled is always a therapeutic benefit. 

How do I clean Mother Earth Pillows?

The Mother Earth Pillows Premium pillows have removable washable covers. Remove the cover and wash it in COLD WATER.  Do not dry!  Lay the cover out to dry and then replace.

Our Simplicity Pillows do not have removable covers. Spot clean the surface of your pillow, being very careful to not saturate the cover or get the flax wet.

WARNING:   OVERHEATING AND MOISTURE EXPOSURE TO THE PILLOW will negatively impact your pillow and it will no longer be usable.  If the flaxseed in the pillow is exposed to water, the wet flaxseed will band together permanently, hardening the flaxseed.  The pillow will no longer be flexible nor will it hold heat or cool as designed.  

Can I put Mother Earth Pillows in the dryer?

We do not recommend that you place a Mother Earth Pillow in the dryer for warming purposes.  

Will a dryer heat the pillow to a therapeutic temperature?  Probably not. 

Is it possible that tumbling it will destroy it?  Yes.

Mother Earth Pillows recommends using a Towel Warmer (we recommend Elite brand Towel Cabi) or a microwave oven to heat your pillow. 

No laundry dryers, no crock pots, no conventional or convection ovens - we've heard it all!

How do you open a wholesale account?

How are Mother Earth pillows superior to other pillows?

Food-Grade Golden Flaxseed has natural oils that do not exist in brown flax or other fill types.  Those natural oils hold heat and cold longer than comparative products.

Mother Earth Pillows have been designed by a Registered Nurse who is also a Licensed Massage Therapist and a team of dedicated professionals who LOVE what they do and CARE about our clients and the results they bring to your health and wellness.  When we say our pillows are "filled with love"  they really are.  Our pillows are specifically created with a therapeutic weight that is superior to most other similar products in the marketplace.

Mother Earth Pillows are manufactured in the United States using all-natural ingredients - food-grade Golden Flax, dried herbs, himalayan salt (salt pillows only) and 100% cotton fabric and recyclable/reusable packaging.
