Just about everybody has heard about microwavable pain relievers like buckwheat pillows, or socks filled with rice, corn, flax or other herbal pillows. However, few people in America have heard about cherry pit pillows. They are, in fact, a Swiss tradition. Foundry workers of old used heated cherry pit sacks to ease their sore muscles after long days at hard physical work. The trend soon spread to Germany, where they have their own term for cherry pit pillows, Kirschkernkissen. In many of the colder European countries, cherry pit filled pillows are well known and loved.Where do the cherries come from?
Cherry pits in Hot Cherry Pillows are 100% from the most precious and favored Montmorency tart cherries. Every July when cherries come in season, the Montmorency cherries are pitted and juiced, as a nutritional supplement that aids arthritis and sleep, because they contains high levels of antioxidants and melatonin. Those pits become a sustainable by-product, instead of going to a landfill. Cherry pits are cleaned and dried with a patented process that uses only water and heat, no chemicals.Usage Instructions
