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 flower seeds rather than grain (such as rice). They contain 30-40% oil, which remains inside the seed to be warmed again and again. Most grain products loose their ability to retain heat as the water cooks out of them over time. Rice can actually "cook" and crack the more you heat it, same with beans; hence the smell. When heated, flax seed pillows retain half their heat after an hour. Flax seed pillows may also be chilled for a calming and soothing cold pack. Use to cool a sunburn, fever, hot flashes or inflammation, or place on the neck or wrists to cool down on a hot day.
For people with allergies, flax seed is a great substitute for other materials often found in pillows. If allergic reaction occurs, discontinue use immediately. When using on a child adult supervision is advised. For external use only.
