Have you ever seen those kiosks at your mall where they try to get you to try their "warmie bag"? (My kids have always called them "warmie bags") Normally, I find the employees of these kinds of places pushy so tend to ignore them. One day, however, while I was at the mall, I had an ache in my back between my shoulders, so allowed myself to be talked into trying the product. Surprise! I was totally impressed.
What it is, is an herb-filled, specially shaped, shoulder wrap that you put in the microwave to heat. The filling in the bag not only smells wonderfully soothing and relaxing, but also holds the heat for quite a while to offer comfortable and soothing relief for sore muscles.
I used to make beanbag-like "warmie bags" for my kids. They would be filled with lentils or rice and offer moist heat once they've been heated in the microwave for a few minutes. They did smell a little weird, though. Mine were very simple, rectangular and somewhat small compared to the Nature Creation Shoulder Wrap which is uniquely shaped to sit on your shoulders without needing to be strapped or velcroed on. And it smells WONDERFUL!!! Sometimes I take it to bed, just for the relaxing fragrance. It really helps me get to sleep.
If your mall doesn't have a Nature Creation Kiosk, you can find their products here.
