Q. What is the best way to warm my HERBAL-EASE™ pillow?
A. The best way to warm your HERBAL-EASE™ pillow is in the microwave. Be sure to follow the instructions that come with the pillow. Microwaves vary, so we recommend warming for two minutes to start and then warm in thirty-second increments to test your microwave. Overheating your pillow will result in burning the herbs. It is very important to also make sure the pillows do not touch any sides of the microwave.
Q. How long will my pillow last?
A. With home use, your HERBAL-EASE™ pillow should last about three years.
Q. My pillow smells like burnt popcorn. Why is that?
A. You've overheated it and burnt the herbal blend.
Q. Can I put my eye pillow in the freezer?
A. Yes, but you should place your eye pillow in a zip lock bag. The cold temperature helps to preserve the herbs.
Q. The scent is gone in my eye pillow. How do I get it back?
A. Just scrunch your pillow in your hands; this action will reactivate the herbs.
Q. What is the difference between the Recovery Gel and the Rehydrator Lotion? Do I need both?
A. Our Sun Therapy products are formulated to soothe, moisturize and protect your skin from the harsh effects of the sun. The Recovery Gel combines the healing properties of pure aloe with the soothing effect of tea tree to help relieve sunburned or irritated skin. The Rehydrator Lotion with rosehip and aloe maintains healthy, balanced skin, especially after sun exposure. If you are in the sun frequently, we recommend that you use both products in order to prevent sun damage to your skin.
