With every passing year, we’ve noticed the aches and pains seem to sneak up on us more often. A quick trip to the microwave, and these soothing heat packs can help with anything from sore muscles to those annoying stress headaches. With only flannel, uncooked white rice, lavender seeds* and a sewing machine, you’ll be minutes away from relief. Cut your fabric to the desired size (we’ve found 12″ by 5″ works great for us) and lay one piece on top of the other, with print on the interior. Using a straight stitch, sew the sides together, leaving about a two inch opening. Turn your fabric inside out and fill with rice and lavender seeds (about 3/4 full). Turn the sides of the open edge in and sew closed. Finally, pop in the microwave for approximately 1 minute and indulge! Also a great way to treat yourself to a short break at work and recharge those batteries. Happy Weekend!
