Oat seeds for booboo birds and therapy wraps.
Years ago I bought in Finland a wrap filled with oat seeds. You heat it up in the microwave for a couple of minutes and use on shoulders, your back or where-ever you need heat therapy. I used it even in my labor for pain. The good thing about it is that it has strings so you can tie it on your hips.
I have been making these myself too, see my Etsy shop.
I also tried the oat seeds for booboo pals for children. My son loves his booboo bird. We keep it in the freezer and take it out when he has a booboo, or "pipi" as he calls it in Finnish. It doesn't get too cold but I think the psychological effect is very good.
