The Shungite pillow contains small pieces of Shungite sewn in. For this reason it may be uncomfortable for some to sleep on however, it works just well placed under a pillow. It can also be wrapped around, or on sore body parts for relief. Can also be used with pets, caution should be used if using with children as some tend to bite and chew on things. This could lead to the material being torn and poses a chocking hazard from the Shungite contained inside.
The pillow measures approx. 11 1/2″ x 7″, the removable cover can be washed in the gentle cycle and laid flat to dry. The pillow itself can not be placed in a washing machine, use mild soap and a damp cloth to clean if needed.
