Announcement   Welcome! If you are looking for a buckwheat pillow for an adult , senior, teen, or child, you have come to the right place!
*******************************************************************************************
I am a one person shop, and this is what I do:
Design, sew, and make primarily whole seed buckwheat and flaxseed pillows which can be microwaved or frozen, depending whether you want heat therapy or cold therapy. Whole buckwheat seeds retain heat and cold well, and contain rutin, a natural anti-inflammatory agent. Flaxseeds are also anti-inflammatory, give a softness to the pillows, and retain temperature well

My buckwheat pillows are unique and one-of-a-kind! They are carefully crafted, on my ironing board in my sewing room, in the United States! I double/triple stitch the pillow cover opening, use decorative stitches, and I add little details. I never make two pillows exactly the same.

My pillows are user friendly, nice to look at, and practical too! I love making them, and I love that they are natural pain relievers!

Each of my pillows has its own distinctive PERSONALITY and tells its own story! I have my own story ideas, and you may have your own! The fabric inspires me, and I then decide which design I am going to use. It might be a traditional quilt pattern, a variation of a pattern, or a design of my own creation! I cut the fabric, and piece it together to make the pillow covers. I use 100% cotton fabrics, primarily designer name brands. Sometimes I use organic cotton.

Most of my pillow covers (except for the pillows containing rice and flaxseeds alone) are lined, and all covers are removable for easy washing.
The inner buckwheat pillow is made from muslin, and contains a generous amount of whole buckwheat seeds, flaxseeds, and/or rice, and may contain herbs. (You may have an herb/aromatherapy pillow or not, at no extra cost.)
The inner pillow is not washable.
All my pillows are made in a smoke-free, pet friendly home!

Because buckwheat seeds are heavy, shipping costs are higher.
I am continually looking for ways to help my customers and keep costs down.
I'm pleased to say that I offer discounts on shipping with multiple purchases.
I may also refund overages of shipping, within reason.

Please send me an email if you have any questions.

About

I Found a Natural Way to Ease My Joint Pain!

My story:
I have always believed in using natural remedies to soothe and heal the body. I have had a lot of joint pain in my life, because of lupus. Someone once bought me a plain, muslin, buckwheat pillow, which could be heated in the microwave. That pillow brought me a tremendous amount of relief, so I decided to help other people by creating my own buckwheat pillow product. First of all, the pillow had to be made so it could be heated or froze. I use buckwheat seeds for that because they hold temperature well. Next, I chose to put lavender in some of the adult's buckwheat pillows. Lavender is calming and smells great! I then wanted the pillow cover to be removable for easy washing, and also be attractive, maybe even beautiful or pretty, and definitely cheerful. I hope that when the pillow is not on you, you put it on your bed or sofa as part of your room decor!

The idea for the Bye bye boo boo pillow line came alive while working in my school. Every day, some child would need an ice pack! The ice packs are made of plastic and have a gel inside. They do not biodegrade, and that irked me, as I am also an environmentalist! Therefore, I decided to create buckwheat pillows for children, which are cute, fun, and reusable! The pillows soothe the child’s physical hurt and comfort the emotional hurt at the same time.
I love making the Bye bye boo boo pillows! As I make them, I feel as if I am telling a story. The fabric “speaks to me”, and my imagination goes wild! I hope that the child who gets the pillow finishes the story, or makes up his/her own!

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to look in my shop and explore my buckwheat pillows. Idesign each one, and piece and sew different fabrics together to create a beautiful/attractive/fun, functional pillow. Each pillow is one-of-a-kind, and will not be exactly replicated.

My background:
I have always believed in using natural remedies to soothe and heal the body. I have lupus, and as a result, have had a lot of joint pain in my life. Years ago, someone bought me a plain, muslin, buckwheat pillow, which could be heated in the microwave. That pillow brought me a tremendous amount of relief, so I decided to help other people by creating my own buckwheat pillow product.

First of all, the pillow had to be made so it could be heated or froze. I use whole buckwheat seeds for that because they hold temperature well, and don't attract bugs! Most of my pillows contain flaxseeds as well. The oil within the flaxseeds also holds temperature well, and gives off moist heat. Next, I chose to put healing herbs in the adult buckwheat pillows, if my customers want them. I like lavender because it is calming and smells great, but I also offer other organic herb choices as they have healing properties! Finally, I strive to make the pillow covers beautiful, attractive, pretty, cheerful, calming, and practical. (It's the Norwegian in me!) The covers are removable for easy washing. ( I hope that when the pillow is not on you, you put it on your bed or sofa as part of your room decor!)

The idea for the Bye bye boo boo pillow line came alive while working in my school. Children need ice packs almost every day!

The commercial ice packs are made of plastic and have a gel inside. They do not biodegrade, and that irked me, as I am also an environmentalist! Therefore, I decided to create buckwheat pillows for children, which are cute, fun, and reusable! The pillows soothe the child’s physical hurt and comfort the emotional hurt at the same time.
I love making all my pillows, and watching them unfold, like a piece of art.
The Bye Bye Boo Boo pillows are especially fun because as I make them, I feel as if I am creating a story. The fabric “speaks to me”, and my imagination goes wild! I hope that the child who gets one of my pillows finishes the story, or creates his/her own!
*[My Bye Bye Boo Boo pillows are not intended for children under the age of 3. Please use with supervision by an adult.]*

All of my pillows are made in a smoke free, pet friendly environment.
