Headache Helpers (/Owie Bags) provide reusable, ecofriendly and naturally safe hot and cold therapy. They are made of soft 100% cotton flannel and generously filled with whole flaxseed.

Each one measure approximately 3 x 10 inches, and have been "quilted" down the middle to aid in even distribution of the flaxseed. This design also allows the Headache Helper to perfectly conform over the forehead, eyes, nose/sinuses, and even over any injured/sore extremity.

Headache Helpers' fun designs make them ideal for little ones as they distract them from their owies. However, they aren't limited to children- Headache Helpers make unique, useful gifts for just about anybody, regardless of age!

Store the Owie Bag in the freezer for a cold pack that's not *too* cold, and won't messily melt like ice!

Use it for bumps and bruises, headaches, sinus pain, insect bites and stings, sprains, swelling, eye fatigue, fever sunburn, or just to cool down on a hot day!

Simply pop the Owie Bag in the microwave for 20-25 seconds for a long-lasting moist heat hot pack.

Use it warm for muscle aches, growing pains, cramps, earaches and ear pain, gas and colic symptoms, labor and afterpains, nursing discomforts (plugged ducts/mastitis), or as a pocket warmer.

You'll think of a million uses for these bags, so order several to always have one on hand!

Flaxseed has a much higher oil content compared to rice, corn and other fillings. This allows the Owie Bag to retain and release moist heat for a longer period of time. My personal favorite reason why I love using flaxseed is simply the way it feels. The seeds are small and smooth, making the Owie Bags completely flexible and comfortable, not hard or bumpy.

* Owie Bags are not meant to be a substitute for medical care/treatment.
* Supervise Owie Bags while in the microwave, and check frequently. Do not overheat!
* Take care when giving heated Owie Bags to children.
* Do not allow Owie Bag to become wet (or else you'll have flax sprouts!)
* When storing in the freezer, keep Owie Bag in a plastic baggie to prevent absorption of odors.

Check out my shop for more prints, sizes and shapes. Please contact me if you don't see exactly what you are looking for- I'd love to make a custom Owie Bag for you! Wholesale and bulk discount inquires are also welcomed.

* All orders ship in either a recyclable cardboard box, or a reusable biodegradable EcoEnclose polymailer.
* If shipping is over-estimated by more than $1, the difference will be promptly refunded. This occasionally happens when I'm able to utilize a flat-rate box.
* International buyers- please contact me for a personalized shipping quote. Please note that unfortunately some countries do not allow the import of foreign plant matter (e.g. seeds).
