I don't have the best description for them but here's the website: Home Grown Pillows (http://www.homegrownpillows.com/catalog.php?category=18 - broken link)


I am considering buying myself one.

I am considering buying myself one.
I'm using one at this very moment ... draped over my neck and i've been using it on my belly and lower back as well.
It's wonderful although the one that i have is lavender scented and that scent in combination with this cooked smell (i think i over heat it in the microwave) is a bit weird.
Kinda smells liked lavender scented hot cereal ... not bad, just weird.
So i recommend a non-scented one and to follow the directions.
The directions for mine said to heat it in one minute increments in the microwave but i'm impatient so i did it for 2 minutes at a time and get it really hot ... maybe too hot.
This is a google page for the brand i have ... dreamtime bodywrap.
I imagine there are a number of them out there ... different brands ... so i'd just do some research and find the highest quality.
But yeah, they're worth it and i like it better than having an electric pad on my body ... and mine is a moist heat ... not sure how that works but it's very nice.

I have a similar product they used to sell at Walgreens called "Bed Buddies." My grandma heats hers up and puts it at the foot of her bed a half an hour before she retires for the night. I use it for headaches, earaches, neck and back pain, cramps, and bladder pain (I have a bladder condition). Mine is filled with rice and for the most part is unscented excepted a cooked rice kind of smell after heating it up.

I just found this web-site that indicates that it is filled with rice.
Heat Relief Depot - Your Place For Personal Cooling & Warming Products (http://heatreliefdepot.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=573 - broken link)
And it's scented with cinnamon, clove and eucalyptus.
I don't know why i thought it was scented with lavender as well ... maybe or maybe not.
I have the lavender colored one so maybe that's why i thought that.
My acupuncturist has ones that are not scented which i actually prefer.
But i'm getting used to the smell of this one and i'm actually enjoying it.
And the heat is really wonderful.
Sometimes i drape it around my neck.
Last night i went to bed with it and was on my side with it draped over my lower back.
It's really nice on the belly or up the entire front of the torso.
Smaller ones can be used to warm the feet in bed.
If you're in a really cold climate, heating it and then putting in your bed before you get in is really, really nice .... like a new fashioned bed warmer.
