If you need sore muscle relief, or help for a minor sprain, you can easily make this DIY heating pad for that! Great for camping, or when you don't have access to electricity.
Grab an old sock, some rice and essential oils.
fill the sock with 1 cup rice
Add essential oils as desired. I used 20 drops of lavender. Other oils to use would be peppermint, or orange for their cooling and uplifting properties. Those would be great for using on a sore neck or shoulders.
place in a colander over a pot of boiling water to heat. You don't want to get it wet, just hot.
place on sore area. The heat will last for about 2 hours to help relieve the pain.
Materials I used for this project:
- Old sock (laudry room)
- Rice (grocery store)
- Essential oils (health food store)
