Homemade Rice Bags Make Excellent Gifts for Anyone
I am very much into holistic healing, because it seems more natural to me then pouring countless medicines into my bo michael kors outlet dy for pain. The following article on soothing hot rice bags was written with a holistic approach. I wanted a heating pad, but disliked the non flexible ones that are on the market these days, so when friend and I were talking she told me about rice bags, well I knew I just had to try it. So I grabbed so scrap material, some rice and well I made my own.
What an excellent idea, it’s a warm soothing healing that will cure what ails you.
All you need is enough material to create the size of bag you need. My preferred size is 7 inches wide by 7 inches long which is perfect for almost any pain. Cut your material, sew it wrong side out, leaving a 2 inch opening on one side so that you can turn the bag right side out. This opening will also double as your filling hole. After you fill the bag with long grain rice go ahead and sew it closed.
One advantage to these rice bags over a conventional heating pad is the fact that the rice bags will mold to your body, cradling it with soothing heat. It’s not a dry heat which is harsh to your skin, but rather a nice warm mist heat whi michael kors outlet ch is beneficial to your skin.
These rice bags can be tossed in the microwave and heated for a few minutes, certainly for no more then 3 minutes. The rice bags provide nice moist heat for many of the aches and pains we get from daily living.
When I get a migraine the first thing I grab is my rice bag rather then pills. I put my rice bag in the microwave and heat it. Then I sit in my recliner chair and just relax for 10 15 minutes and the migraine is gone just like that. The beauty of these rice bags is they mold them selves to where ever you need them so they are perfect for neck muscles but you can also lay it on your forehead, or even the top of your head. If that migraine is one that will soothed by the rubbing motion you can do this as well by gently rubbing the hot rice bag acros michael kors outlet s your neck, the motion will soothe your headache away.
I work 3 twelve hour shifts at a very demanding job where I am on my feet for large amounts of time and let me tell you my feet and back hurt so bad when I get home. I kick off my shoes pop a rice bag in the microwave and then go change out of my scrubs. When I reenter the kitchen my rice bag is heated and I can sit and put my rice bag where ever it is needed and I am on my way to feeling much better.
Some people dislike the smell of plain hot white rice, and neither do it really so what I do is add some powdered cinnamon and this makes it smell like warm rice pudding. So you get a bit of aromatherapy with your healing.
Holistic medicine does not need to be weird to be effective, and in many ways it can be better then traditional over the counter medicines. I am not a medical doctor, but I do work in the medical field and often a doctor will recommend moist heat for normal aches and pains and the rice bags are an excellent idea for most people.
It’s important to note that you only will fill this rice bag with long grain rice and not minute rice. Make sure you use a cotton material for your bag, as it holds up better and is softer. Never toss this rice bag in the washer, as it will turn to mush, if your bag gets soiled toss it out and make another.
I have a few of these r michael kors outlet ice bags in assorted sizes created and ready to go at a moments notice to provide soothing relief as needed. These also make wonderful gifts for anyone you care about.
