Make a Microwave Heating Pad and Spritzer
Microwave Heating Pad Directions:
In pain right now and need something to tide you over until our products arrive? Here's a quick overview of how to make a homeade microwave heating pad.
Cut two squares of fabric 1/2 inch larger on all sides than you'd like your microwave heating pad to be. Put fabrics together with the undersides facing out. Sew around three sides of the square and flip heat pack shell right side out, folding the open edges down toward the inside of the bag.
Fill square 'bag' 1/2 to 3/4 full of rice, flax, corn or wheat berries. Sew open side closed and warm in the microwave for quick easy relief.
Can't sew? You can use a clean sock, pillow case or other cloth bag.
With repeated use, your heat pack may begin to dry out. You can also make your own aromatherapy spritzer to keep your heating pads in top condition.
Fill an empty spritzer bottle with distilled water. For every 2 oz of water, add in 30 drops of your favorite essential oil. Popular favorites are lavender, chamomile, peppermint and eucalyptus. Shake up the spritzer bottle and spray lightly on the microwave heating pad, then heat. This will keep your heat packs moist and smelling fresh.
