Flax Seed Warming Pillows

Flax Seed Warming Pillows | Evermine Blog | www.evermine.com
Here’s a craft idea for the truly craft-challenged — a super easy, yet very usable and charmingly cozy warming pillow. The pillow is warmed in a microwave and then used on tight muscles or chilly limbs. Also, the optional lavender buds used in this project can provide a calming, beautiful lavender scent, especially when heated. I love to use my warming pillow to help me relax and get cozy at bedtime.

This project is so simple that it requires just two (or three) supplies: tall organza bags and whole flax seeds with optional lavender flowers. After gathering my supplies, I put together this project in less than 5 minutes, and I didn’t need any special skills like sewing or cooking. Hooray! Homemade warming pillows for everyone!
