At this point, if you desire, you can use essential oils to sprinkle on material for aromatherapy.
You will need to microwave it for about 2 minutes.
* Please note all microwaves are different, so please "test" it a few times for more or less time to see what works for you. Please use caution when first using it - as it might come out of microwave very hot. It stays warm for a couple of hours. You can also put these in fridge/freezer if cold is better for you.
If you want, you can make these any shape you like. For example, a horseshoe for your neck or a heart for a child to hold when going to sleep etc. You can make these as big or as small as you desire. Just remember that you are going to need as many seeds as it takes to fill 1/2 bag. Usually about 1lb is enough for 18" bags.
These heating pads make great gifts for yourself or for others. They can be reused time and time again.
Good Luck making yours!
