¿Do you have joint pain and discomfort in both elbows and knees?

Do you suffer from annoying joint pain from repetitive work or wear and tear?

Do you want to supplement the treatment of osteoarthritis and arthritis without having to take so many medications?

What is the purpose and what are the benefits of the microwave heating pad for elbows and knees?

Pain Relief Areas Joint wheat bag

What’s it for?

The heat pad made of wheat seeds and lavender flowers, especially for joints, is the most natural and quickest solution to remedy those annoying pains in the elbow, knees and ankles caused by daily wear and tear or ailments such as osteoarthritis or arthritis. The wheat bag for joints has an anatomical design, and also includes a practical elastic band to hold it in the joint areas with greater comfort and without having to hold it all the time with your hands.

What are the benefits?

  • Hot: It’s ideal for osteoarthritis and arthritis, even to put on your hands when you have arthritis problems. The heat, in addition to relieving pain, reduces stiffness and will make blood flow better through the areas to be treated and our recovery will be much faster. The heat and cold pack also serves to eliminate pain and recover joints affected by repetitive and continuous work activities.
  • In cold: For cold therapy you have to know that as in the joint heating pad there is no liquid to freeze, there is also no danger of cold burns after 15 minutes of application. Cold for the joints is indicated for acute processes (less than 48 hours) and initial inflammatory processes. In other words, for specific joint injuries which have occurred after repeated movement over a long period of time, but which do not involve arthritis or osteoarthritis, heat therapy will be indicated.

In which areas can we use it?

It is highly recommended to treat chronic pain produced by inflammation of the joints. We can use it in joint areas such as elbows, knees, wrists, ankles, hands, fingers and shoulders, even neck, thanks to its elastic band of support will adapt to any area of the body. It accelerates the analgesic effect of certain medicines recommended for arthritis, because before the chemical analgesic starts working, the effect of heat will have already done it and the essential oil of lavender flowers will make the body relax, so it will avoid, sometimes, taking chemical analgesics in excess.

Materials and ingredients, how is the heated joints warmer made?

Medidas y tamaño saco térmico microondas codos y rodillas

✔ Inside:

It’s filled with 750 grams of wheat seeds and lavender flowers in perfect proportions. It is important to note that the amount of filling used has been tested so that it fits perfectly to the different areas of the body and the seeds and flowers are distributed evenly throughout the parts to be treated. The wheat bag comes with an elastic band that can be adapted to multiple arm and leg sizes.

✔ Outside:

The fabric used to manufacture the heated joints warmer is 100% cotton, both the one that wraps the seeds and the washable cover with print and colors. Cotton is a natural and very resistant fiber, more than indicated to be able to warm up in the microwave and to be able to be washed to machine without problem.

✔ Shape:

The white bag containing the seeds and flowers is divided into 3 cells, so that the seeds are better distributed throughout the heating pad and the area where the natural treatment is to be applied, so the design is perfectly adapted to your body and joints.

F.A.Q: Frequently asked questions about arthritis heating pad

Below we leave you with some questions and answers that may arise during the use and conservation of your microwaveable wheat bag and use in joint areas such as elbows, ankles or knees.

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

This joint heat pad, with a special cover to hold on the joints, can be heated in the microwave for 1:30 minutes (time measured at 800W). If your microwave has a maximum power greater than 800W you should reduce the time. If you do not know the power of your microwave, the ideal is to heat it up for 1 minute and check if it has the desired temperature. If you want it warmer, heat it up in 15 second intervals until it reaches the right temperature for you. To heat in the oven (NEVER IN A GAS OVEN), wrap the wheat bag in aluminium foil and heat it up for 15 minutes at 125ºC.

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

This heated joint warmer is a 100% natural product, made with organic materials, so a good maintenance will make us enjoy its benefits for much longer. One trick to keep the seeds warm longer and warm them up faster is: spraying very lightly (or splashing very little with your hands) the white bag that holds the seeds, so when we heat it up, the seeds will rehydrate and warm up faster and retain the heat and cold longer. When we do not use it, it is convenient to store it in a cool and dry place.

How long does the lavender wheat bag for hot and cold therapy last?

A common question is how long does the heating pad for joints stay warm? I’m telling you, long enough to relieve the discomfort you have and to give you absolute relaxation. The time the microwaveable wheat bag will stay hot or cold will depend on the room temperature, but at least we will be able to enjoy the hot or cold therapy for 15-20 minutes. If you decide to use the heat pack to warm the bed, you will be surprised when, the next morning, you touch it and find it still warm. This is because you have been in a warm environment, between the sheets.

Can you wash the hot and col pack for joints?

Of course it can be washed, but only the coloured removable cover, as the seeds cannot get wet. Simply remove the cover as you would a conventional pillowcase and wash it, bearing in mind that it is cotton, so we recommend that you dry it in the open air and do not use the tumble dryer. This way, we can keep our wheat bag with lavender clean and fresh.

What will I get with the purchase of the seed-filled heating pad?

When you buy one of our wheat bags be sure that you will receive a guarantee of quality, pads made with natural raw materials such as cotton, wheat and lavender. Each heating pack for joints comes with an extra cover, in case you want to use it without the cover (as a bed warmer, for back or menstrual pain, etc). All this in a nice cardboard box together with an instruction manual which also makes a perfect gift for any occasion. Is there anything better than giving experiences as a present? We think not, and a microwaveable wheat bag is an ongoing health and wellness experience.

    Great versatile heat bag – I love these bags this is the third or fourth one I have purchased over the past few years. Easy to heat in the microwave and great if you have a problem like a stiff neck, very comforting. Would recommend.

    Great Wheatbag – Helped the muscle pains in my upper arm/shoulder

  6. 4 out of 5


    Good product. – Really good product. In fact the only minor thing that lets it down is the odour that is generated from putting it in the microwave to heat it up.

    Four Stars – Reasonably effective but doesn’t retain heat for too long. Needs to be heated in microwave longer than instructions suggest.

    Alison Butler

    Good – small tweaks could make it great – Had a wheat heat bag for years, nothing better for my knees, which I’ve hurt in accidents a couple of times now. I have a long commute into work and having to stand around on cold platforms or for long periods on the metro can leave me hobbling painfully. Nothing works better for me than heat. I chose this wheat bag because of its length, enough to cover both my knees. I do like the product, but it would need additional wheat filling and to be made from a slightly stronger fabric with more robust stitching for me to rate it as excellent.

    Fool on the blue hill

    Great item – filled to perfection. – I am amazed some purchasers complain that this item is ‘only ‘ half-filled. It doesn’t take a genius to work out that if it was full you couldn’t wrap it round your neck! For the record it works exactly as it is supposed to and is ideal for someone who wants to apply some soothing heat treatment to a stiff neck. Very happy to endorse as fit for purpose.

    It’s good – Ok so I have used wheat bags for years and this one is fine , we have 700 w microwave so it takes 3 mins BUT only 1.5 mins then take it out shake it all about reinsert and cook for a futher 1.5 mins and then for me it’s lovely and hot … there is some bad/ negative feed back up here , unfair i feel as these wheat bags will burn if you over blast them all microwaves are different so start low and slow and work out what is right for yours would be my advice … this is a well made product in a well made nice box for a nice price ..Very happy with mine ..
