Hi, my name is Bob Linde. I'm an Acupuncture Physician and Registered Herbalist. Today, I'm going to talk to you about how to make an herbal heat wrap. And there's many different techniques to use this. We can utilize anything from actually rice or we can use what buckwheat halls. Or in this case, I'm going to use a seed called the cassia seed. And a lot of people like to add additional herbs into their heat wrap and I always like to add a little bit of lavender into it just to make a little extra relaxing. Most people will actually go ahead and warm it up in their microwave after just a few seconds, but other people will, are, warm it up either with a heating pad or even putting it in a very low oven, not a hot oven in order to warm it up. I'm going to use a little, old cotton cloth that I've got left over, and you can stitch it up, and when I was in school, we actually used to use socks. So, any of these things can be very effective for an herbal heat wrap, and it will may depend on what you have available, or it may depend on what particular part of the body you're going to place this heat wrap. My favorite place is my neck and shoulders since most of us hold our tension there. Or, we can use this on the injury anywhere on the body. So, once we've gone ahead and gotten our piece of cloth that we're going to place our herbal heat wrap in, we can go ahead and fill it loosely with whatever seeds, rice or buckwheat halls that may want to place in there. Don't put too much, a little bit goes a long way. And then, we're going to go ahead if we want to add some additional herbs, maybe a teaspoon of an additional fragrant herb that you may want to add into that. Then, we can either fold it or go ahead and stitch it up. I'm just going to fold mine up here and make sure that nothing leaks out. Then, we go ahead and we heat it up either with a heating pad, microwave or a slightly warm oven. Now, we can go ahead and place that on whichever part of our body really responds well to heat. So, this is Bob Linde, showing you how to make an herbal heat wrap in order to help soothe any of the stress out or tensed places of your body. So, please enjoy your herbal wraps.
