Juniper pillows

Day after day, fatigue and irritability accumulate, a person is increasingly sick. The body needs good sleep for rest. And so that he was not only healthy, but also cured, traditional medicine recommends using juniper pillows..

What is this plant?

Juniper is a tree that has a strong resinous scent. All of its components are used in medicine. It grows mainly in Siberia and southern Russia. Several species of this medicinal tree are listed in the Red Book. A strong smell from the plant appears even during its initial processing and remains on the skin of the hands for a long time.

Also, the plant is often used to treat the respiratory organs, circulatory and nervous systems. It has a pleasant smell and does not irritate the olfactory receptors.


Modern manufacturers offer a huge range of pillow fillers to choose from. These are herbs, wood, and pine needles. Juniper pillow is in the highest demand.

For such medical bedding, sawdust from this tree is used, carefully sheathed with durable fabric. Spillage of filler during use is completely excluded. The sizes of pillows are presented for every taste, ranging from the smallest – 30×40 cm, and ending with large sizes 60×60 cm, 50×70 cm. A juniper pillow will help you fall asleep faster, disinfect breathing air, and promote better blood circulation in the neck and shoulder area.

Thanks to the free-flowing properties of sawdust, the pillow takes the shape that the body needs for a comfortable sleep.

How to choose the right one?

When purchasing such an important thing, first of all, they pay attention to the smell. It should be pleasant and not repulsive, coniferous. If you squeeze the pillow, it should not spring like foam rubber. Ideally, the product takes on the shape that is given to it..

Before buying, you need to decide which shape of the pillow will be more convenient for use. There are cushions, squares, rectangles.

The fabric for the pillow should be natural, not synthetic. A zipper should be present on the case for convenience. A good manufacturer will always sew a zipper into the cover so that the buyer has no doubts about the stuffing of the bedding. For all pillows with herbs and other natural fillers, dense cotton and linen covers are sewn.

Some artisanal manufacturers save materials and simply mix other sawdust with juniper.

If the pillow smells of dampness, then it was poorly stored, caked and, apart from fungi and mold, does not contain anything good in itself. You shouldn’t buy such a thing..

Happy owners of this product are advised to store it in a tightly tied bag when not in use to avoid volatilization of medicinal phytoncides..
