I have seen these only once and would like to find out the dimension. I think they also make them for the lower back. They are oblong and drape around the neck and are cotton fabric filled with rice. They are microwaveable to heat and hold the heat for awhile. Has anyone seen these or made one? Please help. This is for an old person with arthritis. TIA

I think you can make them whatever size you want to. I have several, each one made by a different person, each one is a different size, and they all have something different in them.

There's rice, flax seed, barley, and corn. They all seem to work a little differently, and my favorite is the one with corn in it. The rice starts to smell after heating it several times.

I've also heard that they make them commercially with ground corn husks in them.

Oooo, I love those! I don't know how to make them, I bought mine at a craft show and it's actually an eye mask. This lady, who became a friend :), used corduroy and it was really soft and durable. I'm pretty sure she used flax seeds, maybe something else as well, and somehow she added some delicious scents that when warmed up were so relaxing and spicy *sigh*, very nice!

Would you be able to heat up the filled with corn one though? :laughing: :whistling2:

I've heated them all at least a few times. The flax seed one is very soft and gentle or very sore spots, the rice heats up the quickest, and the corn is good for deep muscle soreness. I like them all for different reasons, but the corn holds the heat the longest.

Well, I guess as long as it doesn't have any butter in with the corn it's popaly fine. :001_tongue:

I made a couple rice ones. But I really cheated. I took a pair off my daughters fleece pants that had a rip in them and cut both legs off. That way I only had to sew the ends. lol The one I added cinnamon to for scent.

They worked really well. I had to type a 30 page contract and I was way out of practice. My entire body hurt.

What is deer corn and why is it the only kind to use?

Just curious....

I guess you can find flax at an affordable price if you go to a farm feed store. I've never tried but that's what I've heard. And I"m totally wondering what deer corn is too.

I think deer corn refers to field corn that has been properly dried for food for animals. If you tried using regular dried corn, it would probably turn to mush, and you can imagine the outcome if you used popping corn.

Sorry Tracy. That one went right by me....

I just scrolled back and looked. When I read it the first time, I remember smiling because I like butter on my corn on the cob and figured that was the reference..:blink:

It is still a funny visual.:)

LOL Yup that's why! popping corn will pop!! Deer corn will not. Rice is cheap but flax is the best feeling and most theraeuptic :)
