I have allergies and get pretty bad sinus pain that triggers severe headaches. Bad enough that I have to lie down in a dark, quiet room. I've learn over time that I have to tackle this from all sides and use a combination of things to feel better, which includes, steam therapy, heat compresses and, allergy medicine. I use to use just a heated washcloth before but it wasn't too efficient. That's until I got this herbal sinus and headache pillow as a gift, and I love it and won't go back to a heated washcloth again. As you can see it has a great silk like covering and has a beautiful Asian design. This slips off for easy washing. The inner part, which is recommended not to be washed, is made of cotton and filled with the herbs which include:
I just pop this in about 20 seconds in the microwave and it's all set. It feels so wonderful and the heat definitely is very soothing, especially for my eyes and forehead. Plus, the great thing is when you warm it in puts off a great aroma that helps sooth your sinuses as well. For some of you out there who find soothing comfort in cold, you can also use this as a cold pack as well, however you have to pop it in plastic bag and chill it overnight the freezer. So, if you find one pick one up! It's great for allergies, sinuses, headaches, and colds too!
