We had the opportunity to review Raising Green Kids Owie Bags — colorful, pliable, flaxseed-filled bags that can be heated or chilled to treat a wide range of injuries. Owie Bags are fun for kids because of their colorful patterns and bean bag like familiarity. They also don't give off the extreme and often uncomfortable temperatures that ice packs and heat packs may offer.
Raising Green Kids Owie Bags are versatile pain relief packs that can be used hot or cold therapy. They're filled with organic flaxseeds and are great for children and adults alike. They're also Eco-friendly, non-toxic, and reusable. Each bag is double stitched to ensure longevity and to prevent bursting.
Raising Green Kids Owie Bags should be chilled in the freezer for at least an hour before use. They provide relief for bumps, bruises, headaches, sinus pain, toothaches, teething pains, insect bites, bee stings and sprains. Owie Bags also help reduce swelling and puffy eyes and relieve muscle aches, fevers, and sunburn. They are even good for just cooling off on a hot day! Owie Bags provide a cool, consistent temperature that doesn't "burn" like a bag of ice can. They are also soft and pliable.
Owie Bags can be put in the microwave for 20 seconds to help relieve muscle aches and cramps. Always carefully check the temperature before use. Flaxseed contains 30% to 40% Flaxseed Oil, which remains inside the seed. When the seeds are heated, the soft shell of the seed allows for moisture to be absorbed. As the seeds cool, a moist heat is released. Flaxseeds' unique thermal and oil content allow for it to heat quickly and retain heat for 30 to 45 minutes, making it an ideal natural heating product. Flaxseed-filled Owie Bags offer a moist therapy relief and adjust comfortably to the contours of the body.
I'm excited to find a cold & heat pack solution that's ideal for kids too! Since the toddler years produce weekly bumps and bruises, I'm sure our family will use these alot! Also I can't tell you how many times I've wrapped a bag of ice in a towel to help relieve a headache, so I'll be using Owie Bags in the future too!
