Flaxseed and its benefits

Flaxseeds are flower seeds. They are very popular as a super food nowadays but they can be used aσ whole seedσ for many more reasons. 

Whole flaxseed provides a gentle, moist heat which promotes healing.

As we said above they are seeds rather than grains, so they contain 30-40% oil which remains inside the seed to be warmed again and again.

When heated other seeds lose their ability to retain heat as the water cooks out of them over time.

Flaxseed can retain heat up to an hour after heating in the microwave.

The weight of the seed is gentle and soothing!

Flaxseed pillows can  be used  for muscle pain, arthritis, stomach aches, menstrual cramps and more when heated.

They are ideal for soothing baby's colic. 

The heat will relax your muscles, which makes it the ideal pillow for muscle ache.

Because of the texture of flax seed, the pillow feels softer. This is the reason that flax seed pillows are often used at massage salons, hospitals and maternity facilities.

So, that is why we make beautiful handmade flaxseed pillows!
