Heat Bag

I'm making my dad some heat bag (magic bag type)

I know you can put tons in it but does anyone have experience with what's best to put in it? rice, barley, beans, oats.... a mix?

Re: Heat Bag

I've used rice for all of mine, and I think that it works great, but I haven't tried anything else, I think some other things like buckwheat or feed corn might hold the heat in longer?? Don't quote me on it though

I have done rice and feed corn. The corn seems to take longer to heat. I am going to try whole flax seed because I hear that is really good and so are cherrie pits?

Re: Heat Bag

I love using flax seed! It seems more flexible than the other stuff, which is great on the neck and other smaller areas.

Re: Heat Bag

I use flax seed for a couple of reasons. First, it doesn't stink when you heat it like rice or corn do, second, it is more flexible because of the size of the flax so it conforms to the area it's being use on better. And it holds heat really well.

Re: Heat Bag

great! thanks!

I might make him a couple of them. But I'll use flaxseed in at least one of them. Maybe rice in another...
