Rice cozies are a family favorite!
I grew up with rice cozies (also known as warm/cold sacks or therapy sacks) as the perfect solution to whatever ails you.
Cold feet – rice cozy.
Tummy ache – rice cozy.
Bumps and bruises – rice cozy.
You name it, a rice cozy could fix it :)
Why I never thought to make them before, I don’t know, but for this Christmas I whipped up a bunch in different sizes and fabrics. I used regular rice from the bulk section scented with essential oil lavender.
I’ve been warming up one of the zoo animal baby rice cozies for Jemma before we go outside. I wanted her to have something warm to hold on to in her car seat since it takes awhile for the heater the warm up the back seat. She loves it!
I’m eager to try some other scents … or maybe even a blend of a few. What would you recommend? Also, is there a website where you can find essential oils at a lower price than the natural grocery stores? I’m also going to experiment with buckwheat as the filler. Then the rice cozies will have a cousin — wheat cozies :)
