"Stitch in Time" Flax Pillows by kj

ABOUT GOLDEN FLAX

Flax seeds are great for retaining heat or cold. Flax-filled, heated pillows provide a gentle, MOIST heat, which promotes healing, while their therapeutic weight is gentle and conforms to the body. Flax seeds are classified flowers rather than grain [such as rice]. They contain 30-40% oil, which stays in the seed when warmed over and over. Most grain products loose their ability to retain heat as the water cooks out of them also giving a ‘cooked food smell’.

When heated, flaxseed pillows retain half their heat for about an hour. This pillow stays put around your neck/shoulders so one can even walk around while wearing it. I add a 4 herb muscle relaxing blend for an enhanced therapeutic effect. I also make an UNSCENTED pillow no herbs added. When heated, the seeds provide thermal effects and weight which help increase circulation and improves lymphatic efficiency thus providing pain management and comfort.

Always avoid getting flax wet, as the outer shell of the seed will create a sticky mess that will dry caked and hard. Flax pillows can be warmed hundreds of times over the years, but will eventually wear out.

~WARMING YOUR PILLOW~

To warm your pillow: place in the center of the microwave so pillow never touches the wall and it can freely rotate. Every microwave has ‘hot spots’ so that if your pillow can’t rotate freely during warming, the fabric or contents might easily scorch and damage the pillow. Also, microwave plate needs to be clean of food & grease. These act as hot spots and will create burn areas on the pillow.

Please note the microwave power varies from 500 to 1400 WATTS. Heating times will vary start at 2 ½ mins.. Increase by 30 seconds to 1 minute added time until desired warmth is reached [pillow should feel moist out of the oven] The herbal aroma may be strong at first, but will lessen after 6-12 warmings. I’ve found 4 minutes is about the maximum one should heat a pillow.

~CHILLING YOUR PILLOW~
One can also chill pillow in the freezer protect from moisture by placing in a sealed plastic

Environmental and Food Justice

According to reports appearing in the Mexican print media, a federal district court judge in Yucatán yesterday overturned a permit issued to Monsanto, the U.S.-based multinational corporation that is a leading purveyor of genetically modified crops (GMOs). The permit, which had been issued by the Secretariat of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food on June 6, 2012, allowed the commercial planting of GM soy bean in Yucatán. The ruling was based on consideration of scientific evidence demonstrating (to the judge’s satisfaction) that GMO soy crop plantings threaten Mexican honey production in the states of Campeche, Quintana Roo, and Yucatán. An op-ed piece appearing in yesterday’s La Jornada (July 23), applauded the decision with insightful commentary suggesting that the federal agencies involved in this dispute are guilty of corruption and collusion with the transnational Gene Giant.

Obama Just Did What No Other President Before Him Has Done | Mic

Obama will bypass Congress with a plan forcing power plants to cut their emissions by 30% (from 2005 levels) over 15 years. Coal produced an estimated 74% of total CO2 emissions in the U.S. in 2012, compared to other forms of electricity generation like natural gas and petroleum. The plan represents one of the biggest actions taken by the U.S. government — and the biggest taken by any U.S. president — to slow climate change.

The Solar Technology That Could Solve California’s Water Problem | EcoWatch

The founders of a California company are gearing up to make a difference in their state’s future—about 2 million gallons worth of a difference. As the state battles a lengthy drought and considers spending $7 billion to $9 billion to produce, transport and store fresh water, WaterFX, a San Francisco-based, independent water producer says it has been testing a potential solution for the past year.

A Simple Solar Oven Makes Salt Water Drinkable | The Mind Unleashed

It functions by filling the black boiler with salty sea water in the morning, then tightening the cap. As the temperature and pressure grows, steam is forced downwards through a connection pipe and collects in the lid, which acts as a condenser, turning the steam into fresh water. Once Diamanti established the fundamentals were sound, he experimented with a series of concepts for the aesthetic of the object.

National Geographic Photojournalist Captures Images of Critical Pollution Problems Worldwide | EcoWatch

When U.S. photojournalist Peter Essick visited India and China for the first time, he was struck by how different life there was compared with American cities. But when he returned almost two decades later, he found the changes “staggering.” Bangalore now reminds him of the Silicon Valley, and Beijing and New Delhi are smoggier than anything he had ever encountered at home.
