Thank you for comments. We will be adding new patterns in late January.

This is a fragrance that I can never get enough of. These pillows are wonderful. I too have allergies to many different kinds of things, and have never had a reaction to these pillows. Not heavy, just the subtle waft of fragrance every once in a while. These are fabulous! How about some solid modern colors, or modern simple prints next year. Maybe red with white polka dots, or solid white, red, or black.
No preservatives. Only sustainably harvested balsam fir tips, except for one pillow that also has dried lavender in it (it has lavender in its name). If you have any reaction at all, we'll gladly issue you a full refund. ~The Almanac.com General Store
You'll certainly get a few years of great aroma. Many say, many years of good aroma. A few claim a lot longer that. I personally own the Albany style pillow. My experience has been for the first few months it was like having a Christmas tree in the room and then it settled down to a nice subtle smell. If you sit on my couch, you won't smell the dog that just got up to make room for you, you'll smell a pleasant whiff of balsam and I've had my pillow for about 2 years. Some guests will notice the balsam when the enter the room. Every now and again when company is coming over, I'll fluff the pillow to whip up the aroma. The pillows are packed with lots of balsam fir. You'll definitely feel the quality in your hands when you hold one. Yes the balsam fir can be replaced by someone that can sew. The manufacturer, Paine from Maine, offers replacement bags of fir. We will probably be adding that to our store because the pillows have been so popular.
I would like to know how long the pine aroma lasts. Is there any way to refill to keep the fragrance last indefinitely?
Hello, I have serious skin problems and am hypersensitive to all sorts of things. Could you tell me please if there is anything @ all besides fir tips in your products, including preservatives of any types? Thank you so much for taking the time to reply, K. Totten
