Eucalyptus is best known for alleviating cold symptoms, but the Ultimate Eucalyptus Wrap also relieves tension and stiffness in your neck, upper back and chest. Filled with rice and flax seed; heat it in your microwave then sit back and soak in its soothing, therapeutic warmth.
Because all microwaves have different power settings, do not leave unattended. Do not heat on a stovetop, toaster oven or conventional oven. Do not place the outer cover in the microwave. Do not overheat. Heat in a clean microwave for 1 minute on medium setting. If more heat is desired, shake gently and refold in opposite direction to avoid scorching; and reheat at 30-second intervals only. Test temperature before use.
Moist Heat: Wrap should feel damp when heated; this is beneficial moist heat. Moist heat penetrates muscles more deeply than dry heat and increases circulation in the area. For more moisture and deeper penetration, remove outer cover, then mist the insert with water and place it in the microwave following the heating instructions, above.
Cooling: A cold wrap helps to reduce pain and swelling. Place the entire wrap in a plastic bag then into a freezer for 1 to 2 hours before using.
Remove the grain-filled insert; wash the outer cover only. Machine-wash the cover in cold water on gentle cycle. Hang to dry. Do not wash the insert. Spot-clean insert with a damp cloth as needed.
