How to Use Flaxpax Therapeutic Flax Pillows?
Keep your Flaxpax Therapeutic Flax Pillows in the freezer for cooling relief, or microwave it for warm relief.
Cool it in the freezer
Store your flax therapy pack in a sealed bag in your freezer to have as a cold pack ready to go. The seeds do not stick together when frozen, which is a lot nicer than using a frozen gel pack. You can also go directly from the freezer to the microwave, making it super convenient.
Warm in microwave in 30 to 60-second intervals. Shake and microwave another 30 seconds to one minute until the desired temperature is reached. (Depending on your microwave, you may need to adjust these times).
Flaxseed contains about 42% oil, so it keeps its temperature longer than water-based grains like oats, rice, or barley.
Take care removing your pack from the microwave as it may be hot. mix the flaxseed inside the product between heating cycles until its warm, but not so hot it burns your skin.
Do not leave your comfort pack in the microwave unattended.
Patterns and colours may vary on all Flaxpax® products.
