Make Your Own Rx for Aches and Pains with this Reusable Heating Pad

microwavable heating pad
You can make one yourself, it’s easy. Just cut two squares of cloth and stitch them together on three sides. Cotton is the best fabric to use. Measure out enough uncooked rice to half way fill your bag. Put it in a bowl and add any type of spice or oil that you choose. Put the rice and spices or oils in a covered container and allow to sit for a few days for the rice to absorb the scent. Put the rice in the sack you created from cloth and stitch it closed.

You can add extra touches and the instructions to heat in the microwave for two minutes, also putting in a cup of water in the microwave while you heat it. It’s ready for your neck or sore muscle almost instantly.

This microwave heating pad is the perfect gift you can create on your own. It will take only seconds if you have a sewing machine and slightly longer if you’re hand stitching. This video has all the instructions and is super easy to follow.

What you need:

  • Cloth (or you can use a sock)
  • Needle and Thread
  • Uncooked Rice
  • Spices and Herbs (optional)
  • Essential Oils (optional)
