Frequently Asked Questions:

1. What are the benefits from a rice bag?

The rice and the herbs release a moist heat that helps to aide circulation and pain relief to sore muscles and joints. As the bag cools down, the heat becomes more dry and penetrating, and your own body temperature will keep the bag activated for a fair amount of time. The aroma released also aides in a feeling of well-being.

2. How long will my bag stay warm or cold?

Your bag will stay warm for 20-25 minutes, depending on how warm it is when you remove it from your heating source. The recommended time for applying heat at any one time is 20 mm. Bags used as a cold pack will stay cold for about 15-20 mm. They are very pliable and soothing when applied.

3. How long does the Fragrance last?

The aroma will last for a long time. Every now and then, take your bag and squeeze all along the channels, this will reactivate the Lavender in the rice.

4. How can I preserve the life of my bag?

Place your bag, in a plastic bag and store in your freezer or refrigerator.

5. What if I don't have a microwave?

No microwave oven? You can wrap your bag entirely in aluminum foil and place in a conventional oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes for larger bags, smaller bags would take less time. The time and heat can be adjusted for your individual oven. Watch over it. You can also wrap and place it on a woodstove, again, watch over it and adjust accordingly.

6. Do bags come without a fragance?

We will be happy to omit the aroma from any style of bag.

7. Can the bags be used on any part of the body?

Bags can be placed on any part of the body, hot or cold. But, in the event of any sudden onset of pain or elevated body temperature prior to rice bag use, please consult your physician. Rice bags are for comfort, and are not a cure.

8. Can the contents be changed if used for a long time?

Rice bag contents can be replaced, either by us, or yourself. All bags have a sewn end that can be re-opened and new rice added or replaced. (Not instant rice)

9. Can additional bag covers be purchased separately?

We do have additional bag covers available. Please check our price list.
