What exactly is a Hot Cherry Pillow? It’s a pillow filled with clean, dried, sustainable cherry pits. These pits usually go to a landfill, but we upcycle them by cleaning them with only water and heat. Thus, making the Hot Cherry Pillow, which is superior to herbal or grain-filled pillows, because it is completely machine washable!

How to use a Hot Cherry Pillow?

The Hot Cherry Pillows are filled with 100% natural tart cherry pits that when warmed, deliver moist heat, alleviating aches and providing stress relief.

These therapeutic pillows are equally great as hot and cold packs. They are microwavable and can be stored in the freezer.

For moist, penetrating heat that provides soothing relief from everyday pains and aches, put the pillow in the microwave for 2-4 minutes. Unlike heating pads, you will not have to worry about burning yourself due to prolonged use, because the pillow gradually cools down. For using it as a cold pack, put it in the freezer for two hours. No need to deal with the burn of gel packs nor the wet messiness of frozen peas! Hot Cherry Pillows are so easy and safe to you, anyone can benefit from them.

Colors, sizes, and more!

Our cherry pit pillows are available in two fabrics; Natural-dyed cotton denim and plush imported ultra-suede. Choose red, blue or natural.

Everything You Need to Know About Tart Cherries and Cherry Pits

 

Every year in July, Michigan's Montmorency tart cherries come into season. Their goodness is harvested and processed for tart cherry health drinks (a natural treatment for arthritis, gout, muscle recovery, and boosting the immune system) and for the main ingredient in cherry pies. The pits (that normally go to a landfill) are transported to a facility that cleans and dries them, through a patented process without the use of chemicals, just water and heat!

Montmorency cherries, also known as tart cherries or dwarf cherries, are rich in a wide variety of nutrients. An 8-ounce serving of tart cherry juice contains 28 grams of carbs, 5 grams of fiber, 2 grams of fiber, and 1 gram of fat. In addition to that, it also contains a high amount of vitamin A, vitamin C, manganese, potassium, copper, and vitamin K. In comparison to the sweeter varieties, tart cherries have more vitamin A and antioxidants.

 

Read on for some amazing benefits of tart cherries:

  • Increases Strength and Reduced Muscle Soreness: Research has shown that tart cherry supplements can reduce muscle loss due to physical training. It can also contribute to speedy recovery and reduced muscle breakdown and soreness.

  • Helps You Sleep Better: If you suffer from insomnia or wake up groggy every morning because you didn’t get a good night’s rest, tart cherry juice might be the solution for you. Rich in melatonin, which is a sleepiness hormone, tart cherries can improve the quality of sleep as well as the duration.

  • Reduces Arthritis Symptoms: For people suffering from joint pain, inflammation, and other symptoms of arthritis and gout, tart cherry juice can prove to be immensely beneficial. Studies have shown that those who consume tart cherry juice are likely to experience less pain and stiffness.

  • Strengthens the Immune System: As mentioned earlier, tart cherries are rich in nutrients, including vitamins and minerals, which means they can enhance your immune system. According to experts, their high antioxidant content can help keep infections at bay.

You need to, however, keep in mind that certain tart cherry juices might contain added sugar, so for best benefits, go for the unsweetened juices.

It isn’t just the tart cherry juice that can improve your health; similarly, tart cherry pits also offer undeniable benefits.

Our lovely pits are really quite magical because they mysteriously produce moist heat! When heated, our cherry-pit-filled pillows (in denim or ultra-suede cases) become amazing hot packs for moist heat treatments, with a subtle aroma of cherry pie! Because they're a woody pit they hold the heat, and the pillows can be washed. They just keep getting better as they get broken in. They also trap cold air, when chilled in the freezer they're an excellent cold pack––without the burn of gel packs or the messiness of frozen peas.

 


Hot Cherry Pillows are filled with clean and dried tart cherry pits that are sustainable, reusable, machine-washable, microwavable, and freezable. Depending on your needs, you can warm them up in the microwave or cool them down in the freezer, and then use them to experience relief from pain, cramps, stress, and more. They can also be incredibly beneficial for expecting moms as the pillows can be used on various parts of the body when in bed, providing much-needed relaxation and rejuvenation of stretched muscles. Hot Cherry Pillows can help the mom-to-be drift off to sleep, naturally.

Our sustainable products are made in the USA and certified by Green America.

So don't be in the pits! Ease your pain with our pits!

Pain Doesn’t Take a Summer Vacation: How to Manage Body Pain During the Warmer Months

In the heat of summer, most people enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, beach trips, and backyard barbecues. But the rising temperatures can prove to be a bane for those suffering from body pains. Whether it’s chronic or acute, weather sensitivity can worsen the symptoms of painful conditions like arthritis and headaches.

Using Hot Cherry Pillows for Pain Relief

Body pain can often have a debilitating effect on your quality of life, but the good news is that you can manage your pain with Hot Cherry Pillows. Whether you’re suffering from chronic pain, bad back, shoulder pain, or neck pain, Hot Cherry Pillows can provide you with some much-needed relief and restore comfort to everyday activities. Filled with 100% natural tart cherry pits, the moist penetrating heat they provide can also help alleviate knee and joint pain, sports injuries, as well as pain from old injuries. 

You can heat Hot Cherry Pillows in the microwave and place them on your aching body parts to increase circulation, which brings fresh oxygenated blood to the affected area, and promotes healing. They’re really great for relieving menstrual pain and providing pregnancy comfort. They can also be used by seniors, and gardeners with overworked muscles. If you need warmth in a chilly air-conditioned room, a heated Hot Cherry Pillow can be a welcomed relief, just to be able to relax and go to sleep.

During the summer months you may want to store your Hot Cherry Pillows in the freezer. That way you’ll always have a cold pack handy to reduce the swelling of little bumps and twists. When chilled, they’re great for relieving headaches too, whether caused by eye strain or being overheated. Placing a chilled Hot Cherry Neck Wrap around your neck can reduce body temperature in just a few minutes. 

They can also go directly from the freezer to the microwave, and when soiled, to the washing machine and the dryer! Washing restores the lovely tart cherry scent.


Few More Ways to Manage Body Pains During Summer

Apart from using the Hot Cherry Pillows, here are a few more things you can do for pain relief in the summers:

  • Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water as dehydration can remove the necessary fluids from your body, thus aggravating cramps and pains.
  • Avoid staying out in the heat for too long: Excessive sweating can also lead to dehydration and joint pain. So, make sure you avoid being in the heat for too long. If you have to go out, wear breathable clothes and use sun protection.
  • Do not over-exercise: Do not overwhelm yourself physically by working out too much during the summer months.

If you want to enjoy the beautiful summer months and not be held back by your body pains, you should invest in Hot Cherry Pillows. They’re soft, plush pillows filled with clean and dried cherry pits that, when heated, deliver moist penetrating heat. They are available in a wide range of sizes, from body pillows to eye pillows. You can also choose from different fabrics, such as natural-dyed 100% cotton denim or our maraschino ultra-suede. What more could you ask for?

Why cherry pits?

A little history will make it easier to understand. Before Hot Cherry Pillows became a familiar concept in America for therapeutic uses, cherry pits were used for healing and conditioning long ago in Switzerland.

Foundry workers of ole found that applying sacks of warmed cherry pits to their bodies relieved the soreness of their muscles after a long day of work. Then at home, covered in down comforters, those warmed sacks of cherry pits would keep the family warm during snowy Swiss nights. Since then, cherry pit pillows have been known and loved in many European homes and spas for their warming, relaxing and therapeutic potential. The moist penetrating heat is affective on muscles, tendons, organs, and extremities to increase circulation and promote healing.

Self-Care A New Year Priority

self care

It has been two years since coronavirus turned our world topsy-turvy. Thankfully, with robust vaccination drives and precautionary measures, we continue to brave the pandemic. However, the threat is not yet a thing of the past. Omicron, the most recently reported COVID-19 variant, has been classified as a Variant of Concern by WHO.

Amidst the coronavirus concern, it becomes more important than ever to focus on self-care. If you don’t already have it on your New Year’s resolutions list, add it right away. Self-care should be a top priority because looking after your well-being makes it easier to get through challenging times.

Cooking your favorite meal. Taking a nice bubble bath. Reading a good book cuddled up in bed. Self-care can take many forms.

Let’s start by making a self-care kit! Here are a few things you might want to include:
  • A hot cherry pillow
  • Your favorite tea
  • Chocolates
  • Face masks
  • A gratitude journal
  • Scented candles
  • A list of feel-good movies
  • Photographs with your loved ones
At Hot Cherry, we understand the significance of self-care, with or without a pandemic. It gives us joy that our cherry-pit-filled pillows help people feel better and are easy to incorporate into self-care routines. Here’s how:

Banish the post-workout muscle fatigue with Hot Cherry Pillows.

Regular exercise is an important investment in your overall well-being, from improving your mood and promoting a better sleep to keeping your weight in check.

If the thought of muscle pain and achy joints after a leg day at the gym makes you feel like skipping exercise, don’t. Once you are done working out, microwave a Hot Cherry Pillow, place it under your stretched out legs, and allow the moist heat to melt the pain away.

Recover from overused muscles or day-to-day aches and pains with Hot Cherry Pillows.

Do you have a teenager who is active in sports? Does your back ache from working in your garden? Do you have a hundred and one errands to run on a daily basis?

The complaints of achy joints, muscle pains, and injury-related swelling, bruising, and sprains may be common at home.

Our therapeutic Hot Cherry Pillows are the answer. They soothe and relieve pain by increasing blood circulation to overworked muscles with moist heat. They also work as cold compresses that aid in treating swelling, sprains, inflammation, and bruising.

meditation pillow

Take some ‘me time’ and just RELAX with Hot Cherry Pillows.

No matter how busy you are, it is essential that you take out some “time out” for yourself. This is particularly true if you’re a caregiver or a busy mother.

Take a short nap with a toasty Hot Cherry Pillow. As the moist heat promotes blood flow, the warm cherry pie aroma will comfort your mind. You will wake up feeling energized, focused, and in a better mood.

Mental health must be a priority, ALWAYS.

As the threat of coronavirus still looms in the air, your mental health deserves equal attention, even more, if you happen to be living away from family at the moment. Or feeling stressed, depressed, or overwhelmed from being confined in close quarters with too much family can also be a problem.

Develop healthy practices and habits to honor your personal needs.

A regular meditation and yoga practice can help. The Triple Square Hot Cherry Pillow makes a delightful meditation pillow for chilly winter mornings. Place it on the floor in a triangle shape for a comfortable sitting position. Using one of our eye pillows, warm, cold or room temperature to block out light during savasana is heavenly.

New Year, New You with Hot Cherry Pillows.

Our therapeutic pillows will be your self-care companion all year round. Our pillows are microwavable, freeze-able, and machine washable. Hot Cherry Pillows are here to remind you to take good care of yourself this year.

What are you waiting for? Get your Hot Cherry Therapeutic Pillow right away.

The Cozy Winter Comfortof Hot Cherry Pillows

 

Some of us may not be big fans of colder months. The dropping temperatures make daily chores, like walking the dog challenging. But there are plenty of reasons why we look forward to the season (YES, we counted the lined-up holidays, too). Who doesn’t like snuggling with their loved ones and sipping hot chocolate while marveling at the snowy winter landscape?

Our Hot Cherry Pillows make your winter snuggles even more cozy-comfy. Just like the dozens of reasons to get excited about winter, there are ample reasons to love our clean, dried cherry-pit-filled pillows that are one hundred percent sustainable.

Here are a few ways of making the most of your Hot Cherry Pillows this winter season:

Wintery Night Comfort

“Baby it’s cold outside” is an all-time favorite holiday song. What do you do when it is cold outside?

Heat a Hot Cherry Pillow in the microwave for a couple of minutes, then settle in bed or the living room sofa with one of our “snuggable” Hot Cherry pillows. You can either enjoy a holiday movie marathon with your family or read a book before shutting off for the night.

You can fall asleep with the pillow without worrying about getting burnt because a cherry pit pillow gradually cools down. In order to keep it warmer longer, wrap it in a down throw and place it under the covers, it potentially can keep your feet warm all night long.


Bedtime Invitation for the Kids

Getting excited and active kids into bed at bedtime can be a struggle for mamas. Let a Hot Cherry Pillow come to the rescue.

Read a bedtime story to your kids as they cuddle the toasty pillow. The huggable cherry pit pillow will relax them and help their bodies calm down from the day’s activities. A warm bed is very inviting to kids of all ages.

The best part, the pillow is suitable for kids of all ages! An eye pillow is perfect for an infant with a colicky tummy or a larger one to warm the chilly crib sheets before putting them down.

Comforting the Sick

It’s a, sad but true, fact that many people will be suffering from COVID-19 and its Delta and Omicron variants this winter. With coughs, chest colds, aching and chilly bodies, the moist penetrating heat of Hot Cherry Pillows can help relieve some of the pain and stress of being sick. Placed on a congested chess, or alongside chilly limbs, the warmth and weight of our relaxing pillows provide invaluable relief to anyone with this awful illness. A warm Hot Cherry pillow can be a true friend when someone is quarantined during this pandemic. Consider sending Hot Cherry Pillows to those in need of comforting, including the caregivers.

Melt Your Pain Away and Promote a Better Sleep

When you have achy joints, tendons and muscles, it can be difficult to get a good night’s sleep. The healing combination of moisture and heat can alleviate the pain and discomfort of chronic pain. So, warm a Hot Cherry Pillow for comforting relief, warm up your chilly feet ,and finally doze off to a restful sleep. Unlike weighted blankets, our pillows won’t put unnecessary weight on your feet, and you get the same stress-reliving effect of the weight of the pits on your body. We suggest that you use one of our larger body pillows for more coverage.

Thoughtful Holiday Gifting

Hot Cherry Pillows take the stress out of holiday gift exchanges.

Their usability is not limited to colder months or relieving aches and pains with moist heat. They are the perfect cold therapy pillows, too. Cold therapy is usually recommended to reduce swelling.

If you want to gift a present that your family and friends can enjoy throughout the year, go with Hot Cherry Pillows. Why not send our comforting pillows to friends and relatives that you couldn’t meet with this year. Take advantage of our free shipping and use the Code: LOVE20 to receive 20% off this winter.

Showing love and appreciation toward your loved ones is not restricted to the holiday season, but the holiday gift-giving tradition is a great way of telling them you care.

The Perfect Holiday Gift for all your Loved Ones

The Perfect Holiday Gift for all your Loved Ones

The holiday season is upon us, and the spirit of festivity and merrymaking have engulfed us. And, that feeling is amazing! It’s all about enjoying the company of family and friends, sharing traditional meals, and of course, exchanging gifts. 

Between revamping the house for the holidays and deciding the menu for the get-togethers, there are endless things that need your attention. The biggest task is finding the perfect gift for each of your loved ones. Sometimes finding a thoughtful and practical gift for everyone in your circle can be a bit overwhelming. 

Luckily, we have got your back! Our Hot Cherry Pillows are sure to a hit at your gift exchange. They come in different sizes and are great for your five-year-old kid as well as your sixty-five-year-old grandparents. Why? Because nobody ever said NO to warm, toasty hugs from a comfy pillow that smells like cherry pie. 

A Gift with Many Benefits

The hug-friendly, cuddle-approved Hot Cherry Pillows do more than warm your loved ones on cold winter nights. 

  • Soothing comfort from everyday aches and pains. Whether you have exceeded your 10,000 steps for the day and your feet, need some TLC, or the chilly weather is causing your back pain to act up, microwave your Hot Cherry Pillow and relax and relieve the stress. Chiropractors and massage therapists have recommended Hot Cherry Pillows for pain relief.
  • Much-needed relief from arthritis pain and sports injuries. From increasing circulation (when heated) to reducing swelling (when chilled), our Cherry Pillows are great for easing chronic aches and joint pains when warmed. 
  • Naptime friend to your kid. It is hard not to fall asleep while hugging a toasty Hot Cherry Pillow. It is great for toddlers and tweens – it acts as a small body pillow for the baby and helps relax the muscles and calm the mood of a tween. 
  • Blessing for mommies-to-be. The bodies of expectant mothers go through a lot of stress. The aromatic warmth of a Hot Cherry Pillow comes in handy. It releases muscle stress by promoting circulation and alleviating pain, allowing the mommy-to-be to relax and get adequate sleep. Our pillow is useful during breastfeeding, too, as moist heat compresses help the milk to flow.

    Hot Cherry Pillows
  • Pain relief from menstrual cramps. Chocolates, yoga, back massages – you have tried everything to ease period cramps. They work sometimes, and sometimes they don’t. One effective way of eliminating the debilitating period pain is moist heat. Heating pads can be uncomfortable and unsafe, and their dry heat does not address the deep pain like moist heat. So, switch to microwavable Hot Cherry Pillows – they are safe and oh, so soothing. 
  • Stress buster. As much as we want to stay away from stress, it sneaks in occasionally, especially during the holidays. Pain in the back, shoulders, and neck are common tell-tale signs of being stressed. The therapeutic cherry pillows not only provide muscle relaxation but also help you drift to sleep. Used during meditation they promote calm and peace. 

Your Loved Ones Deserve the wholesome Goodness of Hot Cherry Pillows.

So, stop browsing mindlessly in the hopes of stumbling upon a WOW gift for your family and friends because you have already found one – Hot Cherry Pillows.

Get one for your people, and watch their faces light up with big smiles when they unwrap your present and try it for the first time!

Happy Holidays!

Hospice, Palliative Care and Hot Cherry Pillows

red denim square pillow
When our loved ones reach the end of their time here on earth, the angel like caregivers from Hospice are there to comfort them. We honor the work of Hospice and caregivers of all kinds for their selfless service to our most vulnerable citizens, especially now during the coronavirus. Many of the ICU patients will not be able to be with family and hospital nurses may be the ones who are there at the end of life, acting as hospice care.

Hot Cherry supports Hospice for all the loving care and good works that they do, by donating Hot Cherry pillows to Hospice care facilities in the US and Canada.
 
A little red denim square pillow can be a great comfort for those who are weak and bedridden. Because they don’t move around much, their circulation is poor and they tend to get cold easily. Warm cherry pillows give them much needed warmth and stimulate circulation; bringing oxygen and blood flow to extremities. A cherry pit cushion is much safer than a heating pad because it gradually cools down, and it is cordless, making it far easier to use. Our pillows not only warm the body, but they  can also help with chest and sinus congestion, tummy aches and sore necks. Moist heat is often recommended for arthritis pain, neuropathy due to diabetes, and for the pain of muscle and joint soreness.

Every year we work with various hospice care facilities by having a February fundraiser opportunity. We offer 25% of our sales when their supporters buy Hot Cherry Pillows for themselves or for the caregivers.

Be a supporter, and buy a heart shaped pillow and send it to your favorite caregiver or hospice patient.

What Is a Hot Cherry Pillow?

cherry pillowsDo you know what a Cherry Pit Pillow is? 

It’s a pillow filled with clean, dried cherry pits. When heated they deliver moist penetrating heat. Place them on tight muscles, tummy aches or just to warm beds.

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 pillows. They are, in fact, a Swiss tradition. Foundry workers of ole used heated cherry pit sacks to ease their sore muscles after long days at hard physical work.

I have a friend who was raised in Switzerland, and she remembers her grandmother having a little door on the side of her wood-burning stove where she warmed sacks filled with cherry pits. Every night after dinner her grandmother would place the pit sacks in their beds. Covered with down comforters, those cherry pit sacks kept the family warm all snowy-night long.

The trend soon spread to Germany, where they have their own term for a cherry pit pillow, Kirschkernkissen. I purchased my first cherry pit pack in London. So it’s safe to say that in much of the colder European countries, cherry pit filled pillows are well known and loved.

Often I’m asked, “Who eats all those cherries to get those pits?” I’m proud to answer that our source of cherry pits 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 contain high levels of antioxidants and melatonin. Instead of going to a landfill, those pits become part of a sustainable product, that are used in spa massage, chiropractic care and home health.

Moreover, our pits are cleaned and dried with a patented process that uses only water and heat, no chemicals. I once ordered a cherry pit pillow from China and was shocked at the horrible chemical smell that almost ruined the microwave. You can be sure that our pits will never mold, smell subtly like cherry pie, are entirely machine washable, and will last for years. In fact, they get better with age as they get “broken-in”.

Now you know what a cherry pit pillow is, here’s what makes Hot Cherry® pillows the best. We offer them in a variety of fabrics and sizes, from eye pillows to body pillows. Choose from natural-dyed 100% cotton denim or our plush maraschino ultra suede. That means that there’s a size and design that’s perfect for your body. We hope that you will relax and enjoy Hot Cherry pillows, warmed or chilled. We love that we make pillows that help people feel better.
