What are Corn Bags? Corn bags are a common term for natural heating pads, or warmers that are filled with dried corn and heated in the microwave for heat therapy. They can also be placed in the freezer to be used as a cold compress (think peepers)! Who knew?
What are some of the uses? Relieve Stress, Shoulders and Back, Cramps, Warming up the bed, Keep you warm in car while car is heating up, Wrap around neck in winter when going out in cold, Transporting Hot Food, Warm Dog's bed (supervise so they don't eat them), Snuggle with while reading a book, Headaches ( I know that’s right!), In a cold office, seriously the possibilities are endless. And you better watch out because THEY ARE ADDICTIVE (even making them is addictive)!! My kids and the hubba-hubba have been begging to use them EVERY day. Little Bear with his foot all in a cast loves to cuddle with one (hot or not). WHO KNEW??
How do you use it?
Heat Therapy: Place Larger bags in microwave flat with corn filler evenly distributed for approximately 2-3 minutes. Smaller bags & Neck wraps approximately 2 minutes. Upon removal from microwave mix contents to help eliminate any “hot spots.” If you would like a more moist heat place a microwave safe cup of water along with their bag in the microwave before heating.
Cool Therapy: Place corn bag inside of an air tight container (zip-locs works) in refrigerator or freezer over night (depending on temps desired). *Allow cold packs to return to room temperature before heating in the microwave. How do you make them? Hey, I cannot do all the work for you! Plus, I did not follow a tutorial or anything. I designed my own. Sadly, I did not take any pictures of the process either. I always feel like I need to reinvent the wheel. Just kidding. It was hard to find a good tutorial that I thought would cover what I wanted/needed. If there is some interest I would be happy to write a tutorial for them.Any who, I designed 8 types of Boo Boo B-Gone Therapy Bags. So here they all are:
Baby Boo Boo B-Gone – 5” in diameter
Tiny Tot Boo Boo B-Gone – 7 x 7” Square
