Materials:

Fabric (We like flannel)
1 lb Rice—(or lentils or other seed/bean you have on hand)
Optional—potpourri, aromatic oil or herbs

Directions:

1.  Sew sides of flannel to make a bag (about the same size as the 1# bag of rice), leave top open. 

2.  Fill with rice (or the seed/bean you're using)

3.  Add a tablespoon of potpourri, herbs or a few drops of aromatic oil on a cotton ball. 

3.  Sew top closed.  Make a “pillow case” for your bag to keep it clean.

4.  Place in your microwave for 1-2 minutes for heat. Freeze for cold therapy.
