The other day I woke up with a very stiff neck as a result of my horrible pillow and I had to apply some heat to the area to relax the muscle. After going through several projects I found this retained heat better. I felt better by the end of the day.

These warming pads are a wonderful way to use extra fabric pieces and for gift giving you can get creative by sewing coordinating fabric strips and scraps together for a quilted look. Saves money, but also takes away any guilt of wasting good fabric, especially if it was pricey to begin with. An option is to use a fancier cover case. I have used flax seed or corn kernels, and dried lavender flowers but the oil is probably more practical and longer lasting!

I put my rice in socks and tie the end

I would love one of these! My lower back often gets sore, so this heating pad would really help.

My grandma used to make these with corn! I was always afraid that it would pop in the microwave! Haha

I have made these Heating Pads and they do last a long time as long as you don't get them wet. I have never added oil to my rice in fear of the rice spoiling. I'm not sure if it would or not but I don't add any thing but rice to my bags. I have also sewed mine with pockets or quilted my bigger rice bags, so the rice stays in one area. This way when picked up the rice doesn't side down to the bottom. Two years ago I made 4" x 4" hand warmers for the whole family. That was 84 small bags, so everyone received 2 . They loved the idea of having their own hand warmers and the grand kids like having their own. In the winter they run to the microwave to heat their pocket hand warmers. It's a great thing to have and I highly recommend have these around. Thank you for sharing this free DIY product.
