Flax Therapy Wraps
Hot/cold flaxseed therapy wraps help to relieve your aches and pains! Hand crafted in Vancouver, Canada (actually in Langley if you're familiar with the Lower Mainland) and we ship anywhere in Canada via Canada Post or FedEx.
Store them in the freezer and they're a perfect cold pack.
Even frozen, they remain flexible, not like that bag of peas or the gel pack that's as hard as a rock.
If you need a warm pad, stick it in the microwave and heat it up. That's right, you can go directly from the freezer to the microwave with this! These are truly a magic bag. Heating times vary with with size of the flax wrap and the power of your microwave. We recommend heating it for 30-60 seconds (30 seconds for eye pillows and smaller) then shake the flaxseed around inside the wrap. Repeat as needed until the wrap is warm enough. Don't make it so hot that you burn your skin! Not only will it be painful, but the flaxseed will smell funny. If you heat it for too long, it could even catch fire. Don't do that!
We have a variety of different colours available and optional add-on aromatherapy scent spray.
We researched and product-tested numerous fills for our products. We tried rice, barley, oats, and a few others. Flaxseed is 42% oil and the other grains we tried are water based. This means that the other grains don't hold their heat as long, they tend to stick together when frozen, and every time you heat it in the microwave, you're drying them out. Flaxseed lasts longer, both in holding onto the cold or heat and overall life of the product.
Our flax products are not tested on animals. All of our product testing was done with humans mainly due to their ability to vocalize their opinions of the products.
Our flax therapy wraps are not washable. If you get them wet, the flaxseed with get mushy and may not dry out properly. Your best bet would be to empty the flaxseed into your compost and purchase a new wrap. Just like for cellphones and gremlins, the limited warranty does not cover water damage. Use only as directed. Not for unintended use. Keep out of reach of children and pets. Do not eat the product.
