Do you ever use those hot/cold rice packs?

I have one that I love to use when I have a migraine.  I keep it in the freezer and when my head hurts I just throw it over my eyes and let the cold sink in along with the smell (peppermint).

I'm on the hunt for a new one and found them on amazon, but I don't know if I really want to shell out $21 for a little eye pillow thing.

Do you have/use anything like this?

I have a rice one that I like to heat up sometimes.  It's very soothing.

good god yes I DO! I have ooties, a neck wrap,  large wrap you can put on shoulders/back/hips.  I actually have  2 booties so I can always have one when the other in in the wash.  I often see them at Big Lots, you might want to look there, but they are worth the money.

I used to have one that I would use with sinus headaches or when my sinuses are so bad that they start to affect my ear.

look at ulta too, they often have little gift sets of them... if you can wait a bit, around holiday time you will find LOTS of gift sets.

You can make your own. Pinterest should have a tutorial or Etsy.

Don't they just feel so great when you have a headache?  Love mine for that!
