    ****Why are these packs unlike all the rest?****

    * Designed & made by a 26-yr. Physical Therapist with 2 1/4 lbs. of certified organic flax seeds, which don't smell bad over time like more inexpensive grains such as rice, corn, or wheat. The tiny flax seeds are SO comfortable against your skin & they have a high oil content which holds the heat nicely. Remember to check PACK WEIGHT when comparison shopping. More flax means the heat/cold lasts longer!

    *It rarely happens, but if we run out of stock on a particular fabric, we will email you to ask if you would like to substitute another pack or cancel your order. Please remove email blocks for our address ( If you do not check your email or if you block our business email & don't respond to the Out of Stock notice within 2 days, we will substitute another similar fabric style. Please email us if you'd like to check pack availability before ordering.

    A heating pad cannot be used if you suffer from loss of sensation or circulation of the area being treated, open wound, infection, inflammation, an injury less than 3 days old (acute), skin cancer, other surface tumors, or edema (swelling). The pack should NEVER be placed on someone who cannot tell you if the pack is uncomfortable (i.e., an infant/baby, a sleeping or confused person). The pack cannot be used as a cold pack if you suffer from Raynaud's, rheumatoid arthritis, decreased circulation or sensation of the area to be treated, cold allergy (cold urticaria), paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria, or cryoglobulinemia. I have seen other herbal packs for sale suggesting the pack be used as a heating pad to help arthritis. Please note that if you suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, you MUST NOT apply heat during an active flare-up of the disease.

    Due to health reasons, we can only accept returns on our herbal therapy warm/cold packs if they are unopened in their original, sealed package within 30 days of the date of purchase. If you return a pack to us that has been opened, it will be discarded & no refund will be sent. We have no way to tell if they have been used so they cannot be re-sold to another customer.

    LOW PRICE GUARANTEEIf you find a pack for less at another online store, we will match their retail price!
