Wheatbags are soothing, warming and offer natural pain relief to sore muscles and aching joints
Our wheatbags are longer in length and so fit comfortably across shoulders, tummies, lower backs, feet and our customers use them for sore shoulders, tight necks, period cramps, aching lower backs and stomach pain amongst many other uses!
Made in Australia from all natural cotton, wheat and your choice of lavender or clove (or unscented) they are the perfect addition to every home and workplace.
How do Wheatbags work ?
The heat of the warm wheatbag seeps into sore muscles (think of those stressed shoulders or sore necks!) and encourages increased blood flow into the area. This in turn allows the muscle fibres to unknot and relax which helps to reduce muscle pain. It’s simple, natural and very effective!
Wheatbags are also very popular for keeping warm in winter! The way they conform to any area of the body make them more comfortable to hold or hug than a hot water bottle. Perfect for warming you on the couch, keeping frosty feet warm or for pre-heating your bed sheets before you jump into bed.
How To Use
Put your wheatbag in the microwave on high for 2 minutes. We don’t recommend heating them for more than 2 and half minutes as they become too hot to put comfortably on your skin. Keep in mind wheatbags may not feel very warm when you first remove them from the microwave as the heat is concentrated in the middle of the bag. Give it a shake and it will start to feel warmer!
Then place on areas of soreness or aching. Allow time for the heat to gently seep into the muscles or sore area.
The heatpack will last between 30-45 min depending on the surrounding air temperature.
Wheatbags also make great cold packs. Place in the freezer for at least 30min until it’s cold. Don’t worry it won’t freeze as there’s no water content! You can even store it in there so it’s always ready. Keep it in a freezer safe container. Then you can use it on sprains and strains where cold is necessary to reduce inflammation and pain.

Made from 100% cotton, Australian wheat, organic Lavender or Clove.
Lavender is very calming and good for de-stressing over stimulated nervous systems. Can also aid with sleep.
Or choose Clove for a lovely warming scent which will remind you of Chai, Christmas and all things nice.
Unscented is also available if you prefer to keep things simple!
We make all of our products in Melbourne so you can be sure of an ethically made and good quality product.
Kim creates all of the designs from her watercolour paintings which focus on native Australian flora and fauna. The Grevillea design features the beautiful flowers of the Grevillea with their delicate individual curling petals and long stamens. The print is on the front of the wheatbag and has a lovely soft pink cotton on the back.
