"As far as the tummy pillow... I love it! It works beautifully! It is like sinking into a warm bubble bath. I always use it while sitting on my dads leather lazy-boy with a cup of tea and a warm blanket. The aroma is equally as wonderful as well. I smell like lavender for hours after, and it fills up the kitchen with lavender smell after the microwave treatment. My brother even told me he had cramps so I would allow him to use it... haha"
