Whiffy Bean Bags are handmade heating pads and/or ice packs filled with flax seed and herbs. (Current herb selection includes lavender, peppermint and chamomile.) These herbal packs can be kept cold in the freezer or warmed in the microwave. They are perfect for bumps and bruises, aches and pain or for relaxing after a long day.

Whiffy Bean Bags uses flax seed for several reasons. 1) The small seeds are more flexible and contour to body parts better. 2) They seem “softer” than other grains. 3) Because flax seed has a high oil concentration, our Whiffy Ices stay warmer longer than packs with other grains.

Whiffy Bean Bags chooses to use herbs as opposed to essential oils, as herbs stay “fresh” after many uses and the herbs retain their fragrance for much longer than essential oils. Oils will eventually evaporate after several microwave uses. Our family and other customers have some Whiffy Ices from our first run back in 2006 that still smell and work wonderfully!

About

Whiffy Bean Bags is a family run business located in Los Angeles, California. We want you to relax and find comfort and relief with our Whiffy Bean Bags.

Back in 2006, I was at home with my then 3 year old daughter and 1 year old son. I had recently left my job in banking to stay at home with both my kids on a full time basis. Both kids were napping (thank goodness) and I went out to the backyard to do a little gardening. I found myself staring at several lavender plants that were growing lavishly and were swarming with bees. I wondered to myself what I could do with all that lavender.......and there it began!

I researched how to dry lavender properly....bought a sewing machine off Ebay, went to the fabric store for the first time ever and bought myself 3 yards (clearly I had no idea that that would be way more fabric than I ever needed at the beginning) of Blue's Clues fabric! Sewing machine arrived, I read the manual and out popped a lavender sachet! I thought perfect...it's a kid's version of the old grandma like lavender sachet in white linen with an embrioidered lavender flower that we all know too well!

So I showed the kids my creation and allowed them to name the business..since they were little, they referrred to the scent as "whiffy" and the sachet looked like a "bean bag"....voila we were now Whiffy Bean Bags!

Trademarked, branded, website developed, blog started and many years in between and I am now able to devote 100% of my time to our little business! (since there are no more butts to wipe, sippys to fill, kids to dress..I could go on!) In the past I sold many Whiffys through our website but I have now switched gears and opened a brand new Etsy shop!

Thank you for visiting our shop!
