The Cherry Stone Thermal Cushion
This "dry" hot water bottle, originally from Switzerland,
releases heat absorbed from a microwave oven or can retain cold
after being refrigerated. Use it:
As a Warming Balm:
Heat the cushion in a low wattage microwave for 3 minutes and
use it as a therapeutic dry heat source (see below).
As a Cold Compress:
Place the cushion in the freezer or fridge for around an hour
or so (see below).
thermal cushions can have the key
instructions printed on their innner
sleeves (only with removable covers &
not available on custom items)
Make sure the cushion is completely cold before
you begin to heat it and that your cherry stones have not dried
out completely. If you have not used the cushion for some time,
or are concerned that your cherry stones are too dry, you can
the dampen the sleeve cushion (left) with a light spray before
Tip: Before you heat the cushion, run your hands quickly under
a tap and then dry them using the cushion cover. That will ensure
there is enough moisture.
If after your first test your cushion does not feel hot enough,
do not reheat it right away. You must allow the cushion to cool
down completely before using it in the microwave again. As for
your oven, please check the rating carefully. We put our sleeves
in our 700w oven for around 3 minutes (160-180 secs).
you use our filled sleeves (left), which have around 1.5 litres
of stones, you must reduce the time depending on the rating of
& 900w - 2 and a half minutes (140-150secs)
& 1100w - 2 minutes (110-120secs)
1 and a half minutes (80-90secs)
Sachets can be heated for 35 seconds in a 800w-900w oven.
Make sure the cushion can spin freely in the microwave and will
not touch the sides of the oven.
And if you
want to use a scent, like an essential oil or an aromatheraphy essence,
do not put it on the Cherry Stone Cushion until AFTER you have heated
Once you are done, pop the cushion fill (left) into its Rosablue
fabric cover and enjoy.
If you would like to use the cushion as a cold compress you can place
the cushion in your fridge or freezer for a period of time. The timing
depends on the settings of you appliances, but you should expect the
cushion to be cold enough to use after 45 minutes in the freezer or
an 90-120 minutes in the fridge. To protect the cotton, you may want
to put the cushion in a plastic bag or container before you do this.
Our inner sleeve (left) is machine washable, but there is always the
risk of picking up odd scents from the other contents of the appliance.
As a cold compress you may not need to put the fill in its fabric
Once more with feeling: Make sure the cherry stones have
not dried out completely before you use it. And if when you first
test your cushion it is not hot enough, do not reheat it right away.
You must allow the cushion to cool down completely before using it
in a microwave again.
Be sensible: don't leave a
heated Cherry Stone Cushion with a little one (a baby or a small child),
and take care with elderly people too, as they might not react well
to the higher temperatures, be they hot or cold. You can use the Cherry
Stone Cushion to warm up a cot, but be sure to remove it before you
place the child in the bed to sleep.
