What our customers are saying

Hi Judy,

I had a sore on the top of my ear for three years, told to use Hydrocortisone cream by GP with little effect, have been using one of your pillows for about six weeks now and the sore has healed beautifully. Thank you. It’s a simple but marvellous invention!

I received my pillow 2 days ago and already it has changed my life. For years now I’ve put off doing anything about my sleepless nights because no one seemed to know what my problem was and I cant believe I didn’t come across this sooner. The pillow is the best money I’ve spent in a long time. I’ve only had it 2 nights and for the first time since i can remember, I’ve slept all the way through the night and felt so refreshed the next morning with no constant nagging ear pain through out the day either. Thank you so much, you’ve literally saved me!!

Hi Tim.

Your pillow has worked miracles! My mom has been sleeping on her “pillow-with-a-hole” for a few weeks and her ear that has had an open sore for over one year is almost completely healed. Thank you so much!

P.S. The pillow and pillow case are beautifully sewn from lovely soft fabric (very comfy).
