Jasmine has been complaining of a sore ear at rest time today so after further inspection and no noticeable redness etc., I got busy making her a small heat pack.
I remember my mum making these for my younger sister when she had earache, so I called to ask exactly what she did.
I used an old towel and cut out two equal squares, sewed around the edges, leaving a small gap and turned out the right way. I had rice on hand which i mixed with some lavender oil and filled the pouch. Added some prettiness and sewed the gap shut.
30 seconds in the microwave and I now have a contented young lady, with the request for a larger one for her sore foot!! Hhmmmm
