We Touched a Milestone – More than a Decade of Hot Cherry Pillows

It has been more than a decade of delivering warmth and wellness with Hot Cherry Pillows. As I look back on my journey, I am filled with love, gratitude, and a cherry promise of always being there to cozy up your beds and provide pain relief and soothing comfort with sustainably-made therapeutic pillows.

As someone who has cold feet and is chilly even during the summer evenings, falling asleep used to be a challenge for me, but thankfully, I discovered cherry pit-filled pillows, a traditional remedy of the Swiss to warm up their beds and soothe aches and pains. They were quite popular in Europe, unlike the United States, where few people have even heard of cherry pit filled pillows and their benefits.

I was in love with them, the very first time I tried one. They gently warmed up my cold feet as I dozed off. The moist heat also worked wonders for my overworked, aching muscles. I made a few for my family and friends, and they loved them, too. That was the beginning of founding an amazing business with the end goal of helping the whole country feel better with Hot Cherry Pillows.

Sustainable Goodness for the Win

I believe in a natural, sustainable lifestyle, and a little over ten years ago, I could not have imagined myself in a business involving the use of a microwave. But, when I was introduced to cherry pillows and experienced their goodness first-hand, I was determined to share it with as many people as I could. I have taken all the steps to give you a product that is good for you and the environment.

I wanted a made-in-the-USA, earth-friendly product without compromising on quality, and I achieved that goal, our Hot Cherry Pillows are exactly that!

The source of our cherry pits is the Montmorency tart cherries that are pitted and juiced as a nutritional supplement. Instead of ending up in a landfill, those cherry pits are used in our therapeutic pillows. I reached out to a family-run company that cleans and dries Montmorency cherry pits using only water and heat, without any chemicals. I had unbleached denim dyed with natural dyes. A local family-owned sewing shop helped me sew and fill my designs, and the final products were ready. The last step was to create eco-friendly minimal packaging, and I made a commitment to myself to use recycled packing and shipping materials whenever possible.

Today, Hot Cherry Pillows are shipped across the country to homes, retailers, spas, and chiropractic clinics– and the orders keep coming! I am proud that I successfully turned a little-known leftover into comforting, pain-relieving, body-warming pillows.

Hot Cherry Pillows – Your Best Bud for Recuperating from Physical Exertion

Workout Relief

Beautiful blooms and much-needed relief from the chill in the air– spring has sprung! We happily bid farewell to another season of winter, and are ready to let the sunshine into our hearts and homes.

With warm, pleasant weather, and longer days, we feel more active and full of energy. It is the season to lose all that winter weight and get ready for the summer days ahead. If you have not already chalked out a workout routine, take some time out the coming weekend and do it.

As you embrace the spring exercise mood, remember not to overdo things. Listen to your body and don’t push it over the limits. Remember, rest days are important to allow your body to recuperate. A Hot Cherry Therapeutic Pillow is a must in your healing kit. From acute injuries to overexerted muscles, Hot Cherry Pillows provide relief and speed up the healing process.

A moist heat pack or a cold pack– Hot Cherry Pillow can do both. As you enjoy the Hot Cherry Pillow therapeutically, the soothing aroma of natural cherry pits will help you relax.

Spring into Shape with Regular Exercise– Keep a Hot Cherry Pillow for Healing Aches and Injuries


Kids, teenagers, adults, and even grandparents– everyone should get some physical movement throughout the day. Our bodies are made for moving. No more letting the winter laziness get the best of you. The colder days are behind us, and warmer temperatures have arrived!

While it is great to include more physical activity in your routine, it is important to remember to start slow. Plunging into intense workouts after a prolonged period of not doing much exercise increases injury risks. While tired muscles, cramps, and aches are inevitable as you get into the habit of exercising regularly, you should take necessary precautions to not hurt yourself in the process. Be realistic, be mindful, and be gradual to avoid injuries.

Just like you make a workout plan, make a routine to allow your body to relax and heal.

After you cool down, take a shower. Microwave a Hot Cherry Pillow for 2-4 minutes, and let the moist heat relax your muscles. The moist heat is also effective in alleviating any pain from old injuries. In case you incur an acute injury, cold packs are your go-to. Put your Hot Cherry Pillow in the freezer for 2 hours, and it will be ready to use.

Hot Cherry Therapeutic Pillows are even used and recommended by physical therapists and chiropractors for the healing process.

As you call it a day and crawl into the bed, a warm, cuddly Hot Cherry Triple Square Pillow will help your body relax. The healing combination of moisture and heat will alleviate the aches and pains from all the physical exertion, and help you drift off to much-needed sleep.

Hot Cherry Pillows or Weighted Blankets – Which Would You Choose?

We know you eagerly await Spring tidings, but baby, it’s still cold outside! And we have just what you need to beat the cold and stay warm and cozy – Hot Cherry Pillows. We promise our pillows won’t weigh you down, unlike weighted blankets. If the first thing that comes to mind in the morning after getting out of bed is, “My feet and ankles hurt,” it is probably time to look for a substitute for your weighted blanket.

The popularity of weighted blankets has much to do with how they help stimulate sleep and provide comfort and warmth. However, the weight itself may be bad news if you pick a too-heavy blanket to sleep under. Good news – you can enjoy the warmth and coziness that a weighted blanket imparts without spending hours finding the right blanket for your body weight. Our Hot Cherry Pillows, filled with natural cherry pits, are lightweight, exude a sense of calmness, and help you get a good night’s sleep. They are like a weighted blanket, minus the weighing down your toes part!

Weighted Blanket – Is It All Boon?

Weighted blankets are helpful in improving sleep quality by providing warmth and comfort. It also helps reduce restlessness and anxiety – deep touch pressure releases happy hormones.

Now, let’s look at the other side of the coin.

Imagine returning home after a hectic day at work. All you want to do is spring into your bed and sleep like a baby. But falling asleep under a 10-12 pound blanket seems like a task in itself! If you have respiratory conditions like sleep apnea and asthma, weighted blankets are a big NO as they may aggravate the condition. These blankets are not recommended for babies and pose a risk of suffocation.

Hot Cherry Pillows – The Weighted Blanket Alternative You’ll LOVE


Filled with clean, dry, hollow tart cherry pits, Hot Cherry Pillows are a match made in heaven for your bed.

We make these therapeutic pillows in different sizes, from eye pillows and neck wraps to triple square pillows that act as body pillows. The cozy hug of a Hot Cherry Pillow will keep the cold outside and help you get a good night’s sleep. You can toss and turn in bed without a heavy blanket restricting your movements, and your toes and ankles won’t be hurting in the morning.

Heating the Hot Cherry Pillow is easy! Microwave it for 2-4 minutes, and your body pillow is ready for snuggling up. In addition to the benefits of the weight, the moist heat of Hot Cherry Pillows penetrates deep into sore muscles, relaxes constrictions, increases circulation, and promotes healing.

Hot Cherry Pillows that are perfect for everyone in your family, from your little ones to your grandparents, or weighted blankets that are not recommended for babies and people with respiratory conditions – the choice is yours.

Enjoy Pain-Relief and Comfort with The Hot Cherry Rectangular/Cervical Neck Pillow


Tech neck seems almost inevitable nowadays. Between all the time we spend scrolling through social media and hunching over our laptops, our neck experiences severe distress. Fortunately, there are ways to soothe the pain. If you need momentary relief, there is nothing like cracking your neck or wrapping a heating pad around it. But for those looking for a more effective solution that offers long-term results, swapping out your regular pillow will do the trick.

Here’s what you should use instead: A cervical neck pillow.

Ask any chiropractor and they will tell you that using the right pillow is key if you want to alleviate your neck pain and sleep well.

Although the process of buying a pillow is quite simple, some people tend to overcomplicate it by considering multiple factors. Ideally, you should pick a pillow that keeps your neck in a neutral position, which helps restore its natural curve. If your pillow keeps your neck and spine from being in a neutral position, it can lead to soreness, cervical pain, stiffness, headaches, arm pain, and more, due to the constant tension on your cervical neck muscles.

The Hot Cherry Cervical Neck Pillow is designed to maintain the proper alignment of your cervical spine. When you sleep on your back, the center of your head is lined up perfectly with the center of your pelvis and sternum.

If you suffer from tech neck or any other type of neck pain, it is recommended that you avoid sleeping on your stomach as it strains your neck, upper back as well as the head. Sleep on your back or on either side for effective results.

What Is a Cervical Neck Pillow?

In simple terms, a cervical pillow is designed to support your neck and keep your cervical spine aligned. Specially shaped to keep your neck and head at the proper angles, it helps you sleep more comfortably at night. Without a cervical pillow, your sleep at night could be a source of neck and back pain during the day.

How To Use a Cervical Neck Pillow?

Although a cervical neck pillow is meant to be used for cervical support, it also has various other uses. Here are a few ways in which you can use it:
Lumbar support: When placed against your back, our cervical neck pillow can keep your ears, shoulders, and hips in alignment and maintain the natural curvature of your spine.
Soothe tummy cramps: You can warm up the pillow in the microwave and use it as a heating pad to soothe tummy cramps.
On your chest: You can use the pillow for warmth on your chest.

Available in Two Different Fabrics

The Hot Cherry Rectangular/Cervical Neck Pillow is available in red and tan ultra-suede. It now comes in a box, with a window so that you can feel the fabric before you buy. This feature is also very useful for retailers selling Hot Cherry Pillows.
Now, it is also available in unbleached, pre-washed natural denim, including..."drum roll"... two different pillowcases! They include the ever-popular "cherry print case" and the new, polished cotton "cherry blossom case!"

Our Cervical Neck Pillow Is Chiropractor-Recommended!

Need another reason to buy our cervical neck pillow?

The Hot Cherry Rectangular/Cervical Neck Pillow is a chiropractor-recommended sleep aid. It is inspired and recommended by Dr. Jacob Martin, DC, a celebrated chiropractor who is the founder and lead clinician of Inner Strength Chiropractic, in Santa Barbara specializing in prenatal, family, and lifestyle care. He doesn’t just recommend our cervical neck pillow to his patients but also uses it himself!
