Announcement   Relief.....Comfort.....Relaxation

Whiffy Bean Bags are handmade heating pads and/or ice packs filled with flax seed and herbs. (Current herb selection includes lavender, peppermint, chamomile and eucalyptus) 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!

We love to take custom orders and have many, many fabrics to choose from. If you do not see something listed in our shop that works for you, please contact us and we can make you the perfect Whiffy!

I purchased this with a credit I won on Instagram. I received it within a few days of ordering, and it came at the perfect time. I'm in my second trimester and I was having debilitating sciatic pinching. I love that this heats up so much faster than boiling water for a hot water bottle, and I can target my pain better. When it loses the majority of its heat, I like to move it to my belly and encourage baby to move. It still smells quite nice, despite the amount of time it's spent down my pants soothing my sciatic. I chose lavender, and I often move it to my pillow to allow the scent to sooth me to sleep.

my 3-year-old picked this fabric because "rainbow!" and was super excited it was pink on the back (her favorite color). At first she thought it was a Barbie bed, but once I nuked it and placed it on her cheek, she said "oooh! I love it!" She's yet to actually need it to heal any owies, but she loves having something warm to cuddle with. She chose chamomile as the scent, and I find it very soothing.

I sent this as a birthday gift to my friend who loves hedgehogs! She absolutely loved it she got it in time for her birthday, I selected the lavender for her and she said it smelled incredible!! The Etsy Artisan was very professional even showing me a photo of what was being said to my friend, prior to mailing it. Kudos and thank you so much 5 stars🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

About

Family run business specializing in relief, comfort and relaxation for people of all ages.

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!
