Each pad is handmade and filled with golden flax seed and and can be scented with lavender, peppermint, rose or left unscented.
Lavender has healing properties that promote a feeling of calm and relaxation.
The refreshing nature of Peppermint relieves stress and clears the mind from mental exhaustion.
Sweet and floral, Rose fragrance helps calm nervous tension.
Golden Flax Seed is much more durable and pliable than other fillers, allowing you to mold the bag easily to any body part and is much softer than corn or rice, which can become harsh. By using flax seed, its outer shell doesn't emit the “food” odor that rice and other dry products do over time. The seeds also stay warmer/colder longer. Flax Seed is 30-40% oil, which remains inside the seed to be warmed again and again. Most grain products lose their ability to retain heat as the water cooks out of the grains.
Keep your pad in the freezer for an easy to grab ice pack, then when needed warm, microwave for 2 minutes for a quick heating pad that will stay hot for approximately 1 hour. Instructions included in package.
