sock heat therapy padWinter is not my favorite time of the year, as I have a metal rod attached to my backbone. Now that the cold weather is here,my husband has to hear me complain on a daily basis about my aching, tired and sore back muscles.

Sore muscles are no fun to deal with, but Tipnut tells us how to make microwave heating pads that will soothe all of our aches and pains. You can sew two pieces of cloth together and fill with rice, corn, flax seed, or barley. In addition, you can add different scents and spices, such as lavender, rose petals, ginger, nutmeg, or mint to help ease your aching, sore, and tired muscles. You can use a sock, or even a plastic zipper bag if you are in a pinch and need comfort now.

Experiment with the scents and fillers that work well for you and your aches and pains. Making homemade microwave heating pads is nicer than buying them, though, as you get to choose the filler, fabric and scents that you need. If you're so inclined, you can make them as Christmas gifts too, and give them to the pain sufferers in your life.
