Essential Oil Tuesday – Making "Ouchie" Bags

ouchiebags-elMaking “OUCHIE” bags filled with rice or wheat is something that anyone could use. These are also called “heating bags”, wheat heating bags, rice heating bags, etc.

My daughter, Elwyn, LOVES making these now that she learned how to use the sewing machine. {THANK YOU 4-H!!} We love homeschooled kids too!

What do you use these for you are asking? 

These bags can be heated in the microwave to use for headaches or sore shoulders.

They can be frozen overnight in the freezer to help with bumps and bruises.

When warm, they can be put in your pockets to keep your hand warm or in your bed to warm your feet (Tall man appreciates this! I always have cold toes!)

We keep 2 in the freezer and have 2 in the kitchen cabinet to heat when needed.
