Application areas against pain heat pad

What’s it for?

The special wheat bag for treating low back pain, sciatica and upper and lower back pain in general is the most effective model for this type of problem. Finally a quick and easy remedy for everyone, the microwave heat pads for lower back with high quality wheat and lavender flowers will be your ally to prevent or make back pain disappear once and for all.

What are the benefits?

  • Hot: Thanks to the heat effect of the heated seeds, the blood will circulate better and the swelling will go down instantly. Lavender will release its essential oil that we will inhale and we will benefit from its relaxing power and its delicious aroma that will improve our emotional state. When you wear the heat and cold pack microwavable you will feel a pleasant and comforting relief in your lumbar and back.
  • In cold: Thanks to the effect of cold therapies applied locally, the inflammation of the affected area will be almost immediate. Without a doubt it is a great alternative to chemicals and painkillers that in the long run and due to a prolonged use can be harmful to our health, the lumbar heating pad is 100% harmless to our organism and will only bring benefits to our health and well-being.

In which areas can we use it?

Thanks to its large size, 60×20 cm, it can cover large areas of the body, such as whole legs, abdomen or back. It also includes an adjustable strap so that it is easy to put on and allows us to move with the heat pad for back on without it falling off, even if we are standing up. The number one selling model for those who choose to take care of themselves naturally.

F.A.Q: Frequently asked questions about this heat pads for back pain

Below we leave you with some questions and answers that may arise during the use and conservation of your heat pack filled with wheat and lavender to use on any body area, especially the back.

How long should it be heated in the microwave or in the oven?

This microwavable wheat bag is heated for approximately 4 minutes in two 2-minute cycles (times measured for 800W; we will have to reduce the time as the power increases). To heat the seeds evenly, first we fold the wheat bag in half and heat it up for 2 minutes; then we take out the lumbar girdle, shake it well and fold it over on the opposite side from the first time, and heat it again for 2 minutes. To heat it in the oven (NEVER IN A GAS OVEN), fold the lumbar strip, wrap it in aluminium foil and heat it at 125ºC for 12 or 15 minutes.

How can I keep it for longer and increase its life?

This thermal bag with a special shape for the lumbar area is a product made with 100% organic and natural materials, so a good maintenance will extend the life of these materials. When we start to notice that our heat pack for hot and cold gets less hot or that it keeps the heat for less time, it is convenient to spray very lightly with a water spray (or splash it with our hands) the white bag that holds the seeds. In this way we manage to rehydrate the seed sufficiently so that it maintains its maximum calorific value. Always store in a cool and dry place.

How long does the heat last in this heating pad for hot or cold?

The heat in this large wheat bag lasts a long time and this will depend largely on the ambient temperature. If the microwavable heat pack is between a surface (such as the back of the sofa) and your back, the heat can last for 40 minutes, gradually decreasing. On the other hand, if we use it to warm our feet or our bed, placing the girdle between the sheets, the next morning we will notice that it still keeps warm. In the case of the cold, it is a light cold that does not cause any kind of problem and that can last at a low temperature for 10-15 minutes. As it has double cotton fabric, you can apply it directly to the skin.

Is the lavender wheat bag microwavable washable?

All our wheat bags have a removable cover so we can wash it as many times as we need. In the case of the heat pack for back pain, in spite of being so big, it is very easy to take off and put on. To remove the cover, fold the girdle in half and with a finger like a hook take the white bag full of seeds. Then pull the coloured cover from the bottom to remove it and you are ready. To put it on, do the same thing: fold the white part in half and put a little bit of each half in the cover (also folded) and then shake the cover upwards.

What will I get with the purchase of the large seed-filled wheat bag?

We are aware that before choosing our product you have seen many others similar to it, but let me tell you that we want to give you the best quality wheat bag on the market and therefore, with the purchase of the heat pack for lower back you will receive quality, a product made with the best natural materials, presented in a nice cardboard box and an instruction manual so that, if you are going to give it away, you can have the peace of mind that the person who receives it will understand perfectly how to use it and will also love the aroma that they will feel when they open the box. Do you dare to try it?

    Back Wrap Microwave Heat Pad – I suffer from low back pain and find it difficult to keep most heat pads in the correct position. The back wrap does exactly what it is supposed to do. You heat it in the microwave and place it across your back, then secure the belt around you with the straps.

    You can then walk around, lie or sit down with it in place and it does not move. It is much bigger than most heat pads and can warm a large area of your back or shoulders. The straps are very long – ideal for all sizes. I am quite petite, so find they are too long for me but intend to shorten them when I have time. The pad keeps warm for a long time.

    I am very pleased with the wrap and have already recommended it to several people.

    Dr. C. G. Baillie-searle

    Excellent product. – It works very well. 2+2 minutes in the microwave and it retains the heat for quite a while. The strap helps to keep it attached to the body. I would not be without this.

    Umesh Patel

    Good purchase – The wrap has been perfect. It heats up quickly, and retains the heat for up to an 1 hour. The straps mean that it can be secured in place on the back, shoulders an around the neck, though it is a bit on the heavy side.

  11. 4 out of 5

    Mrs V M Wilding

    it is okay – This slightly heavy and does not hold the heat for long. The wrap concept is very good.

    Perfect heat pad – Quality heat pad for my lower back problem, heats up very fast in the microwave and have instant heat strapped to my back able to move around the house with great ease and unaware of the pad strapped to me ( not sure why people are giving negative reviews about the size and weight, it’s perfect!!) – also delivery was very fast

    Alex Colby

    You need to get this… – This is the number 1 best thing I have bought to help me with my bad back. I’ve literally been buying anything that is suppose to help with back pain.I saw a specialist a few weeks ago and he told me to look for a wheat pack that you can tie on. I found this and I’ve been using it every day for a few weeks.I work from home at my desk all day so I’ve just been wearing this until it cools down, then heating it again throughout the day.Then I’ll wear it when I go to bed to relax the muscle in my back that is causing all of my pain.I can’t stress enough how much this is helping me. I’d keep it on constantly if I could!

  22. 4 out of 5


    Back Wrap Heat Pad – This is a great concept and works well, but the heat pad is extremely heavy. I find it more useful to use when I’m reading in bed or watching TV and can lean against it, rather than relying on using it when I’m standing or moving around. My back problems are aggravated when I stand for any long periods of time, e.g. when cooking, and this has the plus side of retaining the heat for a long time, but the downside is that it’s very heavy to wear when standing.

  23. 5 out of 5


    Very useful., Good to wrap round back – Very useful.,Good to wrap round back.

  24. 4 out of 5


    Ok, but not perfect – This item takes around one and a half minutes in my 900w microwave. It feels a bit sweaty but does the job. The strap feature is good but it’s quite loose under my pregnancy bump and I have to lean against it on the sofa.

  25. 5 out of 5


    Next door neighbour borrowed it and that was the last I saw of it. – Life saver for a bad back. Would be better if the belt didn’t twist.

    Heat pad – I’ve got trouble with my back so when I was browsing though I saw this heat pad that stripes to your body thought this was brilliant for the price and really comfrey too

    bit heavy – good product quickly heats up in microwave only down side does not retain heat for very long and is quite heavy but its a lot cheaper than buying the disposable heat wraps, would buy again

    Bliss – As the heading says BLISS!!This is as simple to use as ABC but the effect is terrific would recommend highly

    E. Hull

    Really comforting – Although the heat pad weighs 2 1/2 lbs, it is very soothing to the back. The long straps mean it will fit virtually anybody. If I had a muscular problem, I am sure it would have helped enormously. As mine is a facet joint problem, it doesn’t actually help or reduce pain, but it does feel wonderful. A good product, especially for the price.

  33. 4 out of 5


    Not too bad – Not too happy with this, although it works alright I found it very heavy to carry round on my back, prompt delivery

  34. 5 out of 5


    At last a ‘fit all’ product – A truly adjustable heat pad – should go around anybody’s waist but, also other areas for sprains thighs, shoulders etc. Well made, smart, discreet. A1

    EXCELLENT HEAT PAD – This is an excellent Heat Pad as you can wear it and walk about if necessary – it feels a little heavy but that is a small price to pay for the amount of broad heat it can deliver. The heat lasts for ages too. I am very large and was worried that the strap would not be long enough to reach around me but after ready previous reviews which said it fits large people I ordered it and was very glad I did!

    p griffiths

    good quality – the back heat pad is made of good quality material and is very comfortable to wear, the only drawback is that it is very heave and if you have lower back pain it does not allow you to move about freely and without pain but sitting down it gives fantastic heat to the pain area.

  56. 5 out of 5

    Great for aches and pains – I bought 2 of these as both me and my hubby suffer from aching backs. Love them. Just pop in the microwave and use. They have straps to strap around the middle so can even walk around if needed. The size is excellent as they cover all the lower back. Would recommend.

  59. 5 out of 5

    Amy Clement

    I would recommend – Much better for my bad back than other heat products as yu can securely fit around lower back. It also doesn’t have the strong wheat smell that other heat products have. I would recommend. Delivery was prompt and the product is good value for money.

  60. 5 out of 5


    Excellent Item – Excellent item, heats up really well and holds heat, the whole strap is a great idea as allows you to really position to the area of pain, without the need to lean on something to keep it in place.

    Great idea – This is a fabulous product and exactly as described. The wrap is heavy but once on the weight is not an issue – I have recently had a spinal fusion but the weight doesn’t pull on my back.

    stephen hancock

    Great item – Bought this for my wife as she has to do back exercises every morning, noon and night. She has to heat up the mussels for 15 mins before she does them and used to lay on the floor with a cushion. With this belt on she can still walk around the house and as she says doesn’t waste 45 mins each day.

  68. 5 out of 5


    Excellent – I had a really bad attack of low back pain when I bought this. I had been using an ordinary wheat bag which helped, but I found it frustrating that I couldn’t walk around with it on. I found this one and it has been an absolute Godsend. My husband has used it too when his back has been bad.

  69. 5 out of 5

    Mrs. Tracey Stephenson

    Convenient Value for money ‘hottie’ – Very pleased with the quality, ease of use, speed of delivery and how relaxing/relieving this feels when on. I particularly like the fact I can cook with it on, better if a garment is worn over it and tucked in so it stays secure, as it is a ‘weight’ on my small frame – other than that small criticism, I am well and truly pleased with this item and would recommend and order others for presents.

    Just what I needed! – I had pondered for a while about buying this heat pad but once I had, I only wish I’d bought it sooner. It is very well made and it really does have long straps like others have said. The muscles in my back seize up over night, so this is a brilliant thing to help me get moving in the mornings.

    Very useful item to have at hand when needed. – Bought this for elderly lady and gives her a lot of warm comfort on bad back. Well pleasd.

  85. 5 out of 5


    Great for back Pain – Bought this for my mum as a Christmas gift as a result of her severe back pain. She seems to think that it is great so it obviously works fine. One thing I would mention is to follow the instructions for the time it needs in the microwave exactly, because after about a week, she put it in for 7 minutes and it has never been the same since, but that was her fault, not the products. Overall, a good buy.

  86. 5 out of 5


    Works so well. – We haven’t had one of these before and have always just gone for a heat pad. However, these are such a good idea, they fit so snugly enabling the heat to work on the back. Very highly recommended.

    Five Stars – I like the fact that you can walk around wearing it with the heat just where you want it.

    Great produce for bad backs – I bought this as an extra Christmas present for my husband and it’s been a fantastic purchase. At first he tried it heated in the microwave and that didn’t help his particular problem, he suffers greatly in his lower spine from a climbing accident when he was young. He prefers to freeze it overnight and the cold reduces the inflamation nicely on his drive to work. He pops it into the freezer in the office and gets the same benefit on his return journey. It is well made, fits snuggly into his back and has lovely long straps even for a big guy. The only problem, he’s in such a hurry to get home these days he sometimes forgets to put it on coming home so I’m buying him another one. Highly recommended.
