So...as in the past, I thought long and hard about what to give away and finally inspiration struck close to home. Recently, my back has been hurting a lot to the point I felt like I was walking around like a little old lady (I'm 32, nowhere near old, right...right????). I am a runner, albeit a self-made one and a slow one to boot, but I wondered if all of my running had hurt my back. I saw the doctor and he recommended physical therapy for it. I laughed to myself that an otherwise healthy "athlete" would need to go to physical therapy, but at the same time, I was excited to go and learn any tips, tricks and advice to both heal my back and improve my running. And one of the tips they gave me...get a good heating pad.
And to get to the point, I decided to whip myself up a Rice Warmer Bag and one for one of you! I've made a few of these as gifts and they're always well received. I actually use a tutorial from SMS, so it's really full-circle that I use this great tutorial from their site as my giveaway prize.

These little bags are awesome and really helpful for those nagging aches and pains or for cold feet on a winter's night. I made my bag in shades of blues and brown and used an mix of German Chamomile and Sweet Orange Essential Oils to give my bag an uplifting and soothing smell, but the winner of this giveaway will get to choose their colors and essential oil from my stash to make it completely perfect and personalized.
And what about those booboos or the aches that come right after a run or a long day on your feet? I'm throwing in a square rice bag that you can throw in the freezer and use cool instead. It's the same concept, but that way you'll have one for heating and one for cooling off. I usually scent this one with peppermint for additional cooling, but again, the winner and I can discuss the details... And I'll throw in a couple of other relaxing goodies which may or may not include chocolate and bath goodies... Because honestly, who doesn't want to be pampered?
