Q: Why do we use a fleece outer shell instead of cotton or cotton flannel?

A: Think about it, cotton is known for it moisture-absorbing qualities but polyester fleece is known for its' ability to wick moisture through to the outside. Therefore, when the organic filling we use is heated in the microwave, the fleece wicks the moisture it produces through to where you can get the benefit of it.

Why is this important? Because, as most of us are aware, rheumatologists, chiropractors, massage therapists and other healthcare professionals recommend and use moist heat to help alleviate the pain of arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Raynaud's Disease, Lupus, sports injuries and many other conditions.

Can you freeze Heavenly Heat Comfort Paks?

Yes! Freeze for approximately 1 - 1.5 hours. They will not have the extreme cold of ice next to the skin but are a comfortable cold pack. There is also the added advantage of not dripping condensation on skin or clothes (as can gel packs or that bag of frozen peas you've been using!)

Q: What are Heavenly Heat Comfort Paks filled with?

After much experimentation, looking for organics that would provide the highest moisture content, we settled on a high density, hybrid corn (which doesn't cook or get mushy.) We not only liked the moisture it produced but also the weight and texture of the end product.

Q: Do you have to soak or spray the packs with water?

No! Because these grains draw moisture from the air and release it when heated in the microwave, it is a continuous cycle and does not require soaking, boiling or misting.

Q: How should Heavenly Heat Comfort Paks be stored?

Do not store them in a plastic bag, even if you received them in one. This is especially true if the Pak is still warm from the microwave, as this could result in mildew. The best solution is to keep them in a drawer or on a shelf, or even just in a paper bag.

Q: Can Heavenly Heat Comfort Paks be laundered?

Hand wash & line dry. Do not machine wash, put in a dryer or leave soaking in water.

Q: What is the Scent Pocket?

A Scent-Pocket is a crescent shaped pocket that can be added to either size walk-about or our square pack. You put a few drops of essential oil on a cotton ball & put that in the Scent-Pocket.


The obvious advantage to this method rather than having the scent on the inside of the Comfort Pak is that you can change the aromatherapy scents whenever you like. For instance, if you have congestion you may want to use Eucalyptus or Wild Mint, and if you're having difficulty sleeping, Lavender may be the one you choose. On the other hand . . . some days you may not want any added scent at all.


You may have seen organic heat packs that are strongly scented with Lavender or other floral-smelling aromas. While this can be pleasant initially, you may not want that particular smell all the time.
Thanks for taking care of this for me.
