There are five people in my family who have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, which means that pain is a normal occurrence around.  I prefer to try alternative methods of pain relief such as using essential oils (Panaway is a great one for muscle pain!), massage, ice, and heat before turning to tylenol.

A few weeks ago, I had all four of my wisdom teeth removed and was in excruciating pain for 10 days straight.  After applying ice to both sides of my face for the first 48 hours, the oral surgeon recommended switching to heat.  He said I could heat up the ice packs he'd sent home with me, but they just didn't seem to hold the heat very well so I decided to grab one of our trusty rice socks that I'd made with one of Hubby's (clean!) tube socks instead.  The problem was that it was too big and bulky to work well for my face.  In a rare moment of clarity, I grabbed a leg warmer from the kids' mis-matched sock basket and turned it into a perfectly sized rice heating pad.

Want to make your own rice heating pads that are the perfect size for kids AND adults?



First, grab some kid sized leg warmers.  I pulled these two out of the mis-matched basket of kids' socks, but you can get some really cute ones on Amazon.  Just make sure you don't get any leg warmers with metallic thread or print on them as I don't think that will end well for your microwave...

Tie a knot on one end of the leg warmers.

Measure out a cup of uncooked rice (NOT minute rice!) and pour it into the leg warmer.

Grab the leg warmer by the open end, and shake all of the rice down to the bottom.  Then stretch out the untied end and tie a knot in it so there's a knot on either side.

Done!  Super easy, and each rice sack only takes a few minutes to make.

  3. This regularly prompts a lopsided dispersion of hotness in your home because of warm air collecting close to the roof rather than all through the room. Have you at any point strolled into one room in your home that was extremely hot and another that was totally freezing? This is probably the greatest disadvantage to a conventional heating framework. They frequently appropriate air unevenly all through your home. Beyond Heating And Cooling

  4. You've probably heard the phrase "beauty is in the eye of the beholder." There is a great deal of truth to that statement for each of us have our own take on what is beautiful. It is our perception of beauty that gives us our belief. We all enjoy looking at what society says is a beautiful person - striking appearance, great looks, sexy body - but there is so much more to beauty than what you see on the outside. Beauty must radiate outwards from within. Beauty fades over time, but internal beauty can shine brilliantly all through ones life. A really beautiful being is one who loves fully and spread that love to everyone who crosses her/his path. Joseph Hobbs
