I do not have a microwave, and I have not tried heating this pillow in the oven. I do like the idea that it is versatile and can be used as a cold pack too.
We have been sent other therapeutic pillows before that contain rice or buckwheat, but this is the first one that we have been sent that is made of cherry pits and contains a truly natural outer cover.
GREEN & SUSTAINABLE
Our pillows are made with Michigan tart cherry pits, cleaned without chemicals, naturally dyed, minimally packaged, and made in the USA.
You cannot smell the cherries when it is unheated, but I love the weight and feel of the pillow. It has just enough weight to stay put and apply gentle pressure. I could see this pillow would be especially soothing to an upset belly.
