Pour preferred filling, flaxseed or rice, into the sock and knot the end. For those with sewing abilities, use desired fabric and sew into desired shape. To use your wrap, warm it in the microwave for 2-3 minutes total (adjust power setting as necessary). To avoid burns, begin with 1 minute; then increase by 30-second increments until wrap reaches ideal temperature. Alternatively, you could heat the wrap in an oven-safe dish at 150 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes. Check frequently, and let it rest until cool enough to handle comfortably. Add a few drops of essential oil to the wrap’s outer fabric (the earthy citrus mint trio mentioned earlier works well). Place warmed wrap on or around the neck, and relax!
Share this wrap recipe with a special teacher in your life, or better yet, put those sewing abilities to use and kick off the year with a teacher gift. End of year teacher gifts are more traditional, but this isn’t exactly the most traditional school year to date, is it?
