"Stitch in Time" Flax Pillows by kj


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.


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.

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

McDonald's Is Closing More Restaurants Than It Opens | The Food Revolution Network

Finally, our efforts to avoid processed foods and Frankenfoods are paying off. For the first time in decades, McDonald’s is struggling and has to close more restaurants than it opens after worldwide drops in sales. According to an Associated Press review of McDonald’s regulatory filings, this hasn’t happened since 1970. Earlier this year the fast food giant announced the closing of 350 underperforming locations, but recently admitted it had to close an additional 350 restaurants in the U.S., Japan, and China. The closings include both franchises and company-owned locations.
