About Flax Seeds & Lavender
Why we use Lavender...
Lavender has often been defined as the universal healing herb because of its versatility.
Lavender essential oil is believed to have anticeptic and antifungal properties as well as anti-inflammatory properties that help promote healing of minor burns and bug bites. It is also useful for treating anxiety, insomnia, depression, and restlessness, digestive issues such as upset stomach, vomiting, nausea, intestinal gas, and abdominal swelling. Lavender essential oil improves the circulation of blood in the body. It helps to lower blood pressure and is often used for hypertension.
Lavender is also used to help relieve pain from headaches, migraines, muscle cramps, sprains, toothaches, and sores. It is also an excellent insect repellent.
Why we use flax seeds...
Flax seeds are very small and conform easily to any body part making it very comfortable. Flax seeds contain 30 to 40% oil, commonly known as "Linseed Oil". When flax seeds are heated in the microwave they release a gentle, moist heat for a long period of time. Flax seeds retain half their heat after 1 hour!
Many other products are filled with corn, rice or beans and when heated are actually being cooked. This is why they begin to smell. Flax seeds are oil based and oil does not dehydrate. This means you can heat flax seeds time and time again. Not only will flax seeds retain their heat, but they will never smell.
Flax seeds can also be put in the freezer to act as a cold compress. The flax seeds will still conform to you because flax seeds do not freeze solid. They are a wonderful relief to headaches, migraines, and fevers.
Two important notes for our flax seed products....Do not get them wet and do not over heat. If you over heat flax seeds, they will have a permanent burned odor and will need to be replaced.
