DIY Gift Ideas for the Women in Your Life


Essential Healing

Healing Warming Wrap

  • 6 drops favorite essential oils (We recommend CHANGES Women’s Health Blend for abdominal relief, Lavender for tension in the neck and shoulders, and PARADISE Relaxing Blend for core comfort and rest.)
  • 7-1/2″ x 40-1/2″ rectangle of cotton
  • 7-1/2″ x 40-1/2″ rectangle of flannel
  • Needle & thread
  • Iron
  • Scissors
  • Straight pins
  • Large measuring cup with spout
  • 9 cups uncooked rice (4 pounds)
  • Iron all fabric.
  • Please fabric pieces directly on top of each other with the “fronts” of each piece facing in, to appear inside-out.
  • Pin along the right sides to secure the pieces in place.
  • Backstitch the two long sides and one short side about ¼” from the edge.
  • Backstitch the final side, leaving a 4” opening in the center.
  • Pull the sewn short end through the 4” opening (like a sock) so that the fabric becomes right side out.
  • Add the rice and Authentic oil to a large measuring cup with a spout. Mix to combine.
  • Pour the rice through the opening.
  • Sew the final side shut with a straight stitch from top to bottom, backstitching both ends.

To Use: Experiment with microwave settings for optimal results. Rice will burn if overheated. Begin warming for 60 seconds on full power. Adjust in 15-second intervals until desired temperature is achieved.

Important Note: Do not add water. Adding water or dampening the fabric can lead to steam burns.
