All Natural Pain Relieving "Rice Pack"

Find an old scrap of fabric  measuring approx 12in long x 6in tall. You'll want something a bit on the sturdier side, if you plan on using it often.
With a sewing machine, sew up 3 of the sides (right sides facing in so the seam won't show when you turn it right side out), leaving the top open.
Turn it right sides out, you should have something resembling a small pillow case.
Pour rice into your "pillow" with a funnel 'til it's a little more than half full and then close the seam. That's it. You're done.
You can also add drops of essential oils to the rice before you close the seam.
Put your "rice pack” in the freezer for a couple of hours or in the microwave for a minute and you're good to go.
These would make a great Father's day gift for dad, if he has a bad back or neck or even knees. The pliable shape makes it great for lots of uses.
I loooove mine!

WOW! That is a good idea, I did not realize that rice held heat, I will have to try it:)

Thank you!
It really does feel sooo nice & relaxing. The counter pressure of the rice helps alot, too.
