Kimochi Aroma Pillows are my newest tools for easing stress and tension. “Kimochi” is a Japanese word which translates to “good mood,” and this is associated to such wonderful feeling with every use of the therapy pillows. Indeed, these sensory “heaty microwaveable pillows” keep me warm, relax my tight muscles, and relieve my chronic pain issues. I use them almost every day now to ultimately help me rest deeply after a tiring day at work. ๐Ÿ™‚

A Review: 5 Things to Love About Kimochi Aroma Pillows

1. Lightweight

Instead of using electric heat pads, blankets, or hot water bottles for your aches and pains, these microwaveable pillow are just the ticket! Kimochi Aroma Pillows are lightweight and ultra-compact, which means you can carry them around and pack them everywhere. Weight is also a defining factor that makes it easy for the pillow to drape on your body.

If you have neck or shoulder spasms, for example, you wouldn’t want to be burdened of carrying heavy pillows like sacks of rice on your back and scrunching your shoulders every minute or so. The grains move around inside, hitting all the places where I want relief.

2. Relaxing Scent

Aromatherapy in the bedroom elevates the mood of people suffering from sleep disorders. Lavender essential oil infused as the default scent of Kimochi Aroma Pillows encourages a better nightโ€™s sleep. Jasmine, eucalyptus, lemon, sandalwood, and chamomile are other great scents that reduce nervous system activity and maximize sleep benefits.

After microwaving the pillow, the relaxing scent is not replaced with a burning smell. I find that it’s a faint floral/herbal scent that’s not too cloying or nauseating, a fragrance that most spa centers use. Per their website, the aroma eventually wears off with continued use but you can spray the pillow with an aromatic oil of your choice to refresh the scent or give it a new one.

3. Natural Home Health Remedy

Kimochi Aroma Pillows are natural home health remedy products that can be used to treat various types of aches and pains. They help to aid in many physical and mental issues such as headaches, sinuses, migraines, insomnia, stress, tension, cramps, joint pain, stiffness, muscle aches, and more.ย Depending on your needs, you can either use them safely as a hot or cold compress.

To cool, wrap the pillow in a plastic bag, seal, and place inside the refrigerator or freezer for at least three hours or overnight. To heat, just put it in the microwave for a minute or two. When you’re outside and don’t have a microwave, placing it near the windshield in the sun warms it up on a long drive.

4. Moldable

Kimochi Aroma Pillows come in different sizes and all of them are soft, plushy, and flexible. My favorite has to be the 3 Cut Wrap Around (15cmx39cm) since it can wrap around my entire neck and stiff shoulders. The pillow can conform to contours of the neck and the head resulting in even distribution, proper support, and comfort. Also, whenever menstrual cramps (dysmenorrhea) occur, this works as my ultimate relaxer and pain reducer. ๐Ÿ™‚

5. Affordable

Considering that these pillows are reusable and are made with good quality materials, prices are decent and pretty reasonable. The print designs on the cotton fabric pillow covers can be customized and there are plenty to choose from. They’re even great as gifts, wedding souvenirs, and corporate giveaways. Available sizes are as follows:

Hand Warmer (8cmx11cm) – PhP 70

  • reduces puffy eyes and soothes sore eyes
  • relieves sinuses, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, hand and finger pain
  • can be used as a comfy wrist pad

Wrist Type (7cmx19cm) – PhP 120

  • relieves sinus, headaches, wrist pain, and stye
  • can be used as a comfy wrist pad for computer keyboard and mouse

Square Type (16cmx19cm) – PhP 230

  • relieves frozen shoulders, joint and knee pain, lower back pain, menstrual pain, and stomachache
  • can be extra comforting for children at bed time

3 Cut Wrap Around (15cmx39cm) – PhP 430

  • relieves swollen legs, joint pain, muscular sprain, lower back pain, menstrual cramps and stomachache, stiff neck, and frozen shoulders

    Oh these pillows really are great! I make these at home (DIY) and they are great for all sorts of aches and pains, especially after a long hiking day. I love you’re review. So informative. Thanks.

      The relaxing aromatic herbal pillow will stabilize your blood pressure. It’s also a natural and efficient method against insomnia and lack of sufficient sleep. You’re welcome!

    So this is definitely the first I’ve heard of kimochi aroma pillows before. I naively thought they were only for smelling up your dresser drawers (which is what I use lavendar one’s for). But if they help soothe muscles or aches and pains I’ll definitely be looking into getting more of these for that purpose! So interesting!!

      We had a pillow like that before. It was a gift from my aunt and everybody at home shares the same microwavable pillow. Now we have more and in different sizes. ๐Ÿ˜‰ We thought these are also nice gifts for friends and relatives as they can also be taken on trips.

    Sometimes, I have back pain and I think these would be really for it. I also like that that is re-usable and they will make great Christmas gifts.

      Take some stress off your back, shoulders, and neck with these heated pillows. I recommend the biggest one because its shape can drape cozily on your body for instant relief.

    I could use some help with these pillows. De-stressing has been a big part of my lifestyle because I am very prone to too much stress. With so many deadlines, who wouldn’t?

      The sizes and shapes of these pillows are perfect and easy to manipulate to different shapes for different muscles. I thought they can also be used to massage, as a rice pack. ๐Ÿ™‚

    What a great review. These pillows look pretty and I love that they are scented. Lavender is my favorite scent as it helps me sleep deeply. This will be great to bring when you’re traveling.

    I love the portability of the Kimochi Aroma Pillows. I can see myself taking these away with me while traveling or for a “secret snooze” at work. These are also perfect stocking stuffers for the upcoming holidays.

    These sound amazing! I love having a great scent in my home and the added bonus of a heated pillow to lay on. Yes Please. I love how the meaning of the work Kimochi helps to identify exactly what you can achieve with the pillow. Wonderful product and great review.

    What an interesting concept! I have several rice bags at home, but none of them are scented. Having a scent would definitely make them tons better. How do these affect people who are sensitive to perfumes? My boyfriend feels nauseous when he’s around scented stuff, so I have to be careful with what I bring into the house. If these have been tested to be okay for people like him, I will definitely check them out.

      I’m also sensitive to perfume scents and don’t have those strong aromas. What’s nice about lavender and aromatherapy scents is that they’re relaxing and not too offending to the nose. You can microwave the pillow for warmth. It’s non-toxic. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love pillows. I like it when you said it’s affordable. That’s one thing I need to consider though before buying pillows aside from of course the comfort it can give me. Thanks for sharing your review about Kimochi aroma pillows.
