We all need to relax and unwind. It's part of good self care as well as the
care for others. My rice bags are all hand sewn and I search for the most
beautiful fabrics I can find. Self care also involves beautiful surroundings
and a beautiful rice bag can help to soothe aches and pains and the added
aromatherapy of the lavender can lead to calming anxiety and aid in relaxation.
Each of my bags are filled with rice, organic dried lavender buds and organic
essential oils. I also stitch in handles in my neck wraps for easy access in
and out of the microwave and they also aid in placement for the body parts you
need the warmth to soothe.
My bags can also be used to cool body parts as well. If placed in the freezer
for 1 hour they provide relief from achy muscles, insect bites, bumps and many
benefit from headache relief if placed around the back of the neck while cool.
Many customers find they only use the aromatherapy aspect of the wrap and
don't always heat or cool the pack. The weight and scent of the lavender can be
very calming on their own.
I live in a rural area of Maine, so if you see a fabric you love I would
recommend purchasing it when you see it as fabric availability can change
quickly and I try to purchase locally if possible to support small business in
my area. I find locally I am finding such beautiful patterns and designs you
are sure to find something that speaks to you.
My bags can be purchased individually or as a set. The second is great for
sharing or gift giving.
The neck wrap measures 5 X 22 inches excluding the handles.
The small bag measures 6 X 12 inches.
Each bag has a tag that reads "RELAX" sewn in as well.
When heating your rice bag begin with 30 second increments until you can judge
the amount of time your microwave requires for the heat you desire. Please use
caution when taking out until you check the temperature is safe and comfortable.
Please do not get wet and spot clean as needed.
