The back side is a coordinating turquoise fabric. This lavender pillow is useful in diminishing stress, easily fits on your bed or couch (or car) and makes a unique gift. The contents of each pillow is lavender, and only lavender, thus there are no other fillers. Lavender has plenty of its own natural oils, so give it a gentle squeeze to slightly bruise the buds to draw out more fragrance. This pillow should not be heated or put into a microwave oven.
