What are Wheat Bags?
Wheat bags are bags of wheat that can be microwaved, or sometimes put in the oven, that when heated, provide a natural source of pain relief. They do this by introducing heat gently, for a prolonged period, to the aggravated area. Commonly used for muscular pulls and aches but also period pains, wheat bags have been used across Europe for years!
How do they work?
Blast Henriet, among other Wheat Bags, work by placing the bag in the microwave of oven for around 5 minutes. Once heated, the wheat bag will have enough heat to stay warm for around 20-40min. You then place on the part of the body that is hurting and it should provide some relief.
If you've put it in the oven or microwave for too long then we recommend letting it cool or placing a tea towel around it!
Before heating, put in a heat or oven proof container with a little water to stop the wheat drying out over time
Can I wash a Blasta Henriet Wheat Bag?
Yes! All the eye pillows and neck pillows have detachable covers and can be machine or hand washed. If washing, use mild detergent at 30°c and be gentle! Avoid using a tumble drier with these or a hot iron.
Do not wash the bag itself as the water will damage the grains - spot clean this only!
Can a Wheat Bag Burn?
Yes, over time the wheat will gradually lose moisture and cause it to burn. To stop this, you can either gently wet the bag before heating or place it next to a heat proof (oven proof) container while heating it in the microwave or oven.
This will maintain the natural levels of moisture in the Wheat.
Can you use Wheat Bags during pregnancy?
Yes! Wheat bags are safe to use during pregnancy and is an effective drug-free pain relief option. The heat is isolated to a specifc area of the body so it should not raise your overall body temperature. Wheat bags have helped many woman before and after pregnancies to cope with the strain on their bodies!
