Bothered by persistent neck pain? Annoyed by a sprained ankle? Headaches, muscle tension, or arthritis? Oftentimes, the best treatment for these sorts of problems is the simple application of heat or ice. Heat packs, however, can only be used once, and ice can get messy. That's why we offer therapeutic "Flax Pax," made from 100% Golden Valley Flax!
Our Flax Pax can be either heated up OR frozen, and will retain their temperature for as long as 45 minutes. That's longer than the standard heat pack or ice pack, and what's more, Flax Pax can be used again and again!
Why flax? First, Flax Pax feel better than the standard hot or cold packs. Ice packs can be uncomfortable, but our Flax Pax are designed to fit the contours of your body and are made of soft. cotton flannel. Second, Flax Pax last! Because of the high oil content of flax, our Flax Pax will retain their ability to provide heat and cold for as long as you use them. Directions for use: You don't have to buy two, but it's easiest if you keep one Flax Pax in the freezer and one in the cupboard, so you always have one ready to go. If you keep one in the freezer, make sure that it's in a sealed plastic bag to keep the moisture from damaging the cotton. Just take it out of the freezer, and it's ready for use! If you want a hot pack, microwave your Flax Pax for 2-3 minutes. To prevent uneven heating, remove your Flax Pax after each minute in the microwave and shake it around a bit.
