Directions for Heat Pack:

It is highly recommended to microwave your hand warmers with a cup of water to prevent scorching the ingredients. We have found it is not necessary to use the water method... but do what you will with that information. The hand warmers may need more heating time when using the cup o' water method. We also have found that having a carousel in the microwave heats them much more evenly, hence less likely to overheat or burn. 

Place hand warmers in microwave and heat in 15-30 second intervals until desired temperature is reached. Heating times vary due to wattage differences of microwaves. Always check after these time frames to find the perfect timing for your particular microwave. Once you find that sweet number...you can use it for future heatings.

Be careful not to overheat...rice could burn, and ruin your perfectly good hand warmers (or microwave). If overheated, the rice may singe and cause an unpleasant odor. These little beauties can get VERY HOT (sometimes in spots) so carefully check temperature before applying to hands or body. As always, check temperature carefully before giving to children. Please do not put in baby's crib or give to children under two years old. 

Please not to place your heated hand warmers on your beautiful new dress, as it could leave an oil mark, due to the coconut oil powder and the essential oils in the blend.

Care Instructions: Surface spot clean only. Do not wash.

FUN FACT: People have been known to place them in a clay bowl on the wood stove...watching carefully & flipping them to heat them in lieu of a microwave for rustic cabins or for a dislike of microwaves. Of course, discretion is advised. Not responsible for mishaps from putting your Minnesota Hand Warmers on a hot wood stove. 


Directions for Cold Pack:
Your hand warmers can also be frozen to use as a cold pack. Freeze for three or more hours.

YOUR MINNESTOA HAND WARMERS CAN BE USED FOR HEAT OR COLD THERAPY OR FOR CONTRAST THERAPY (HOT & COLD) FOR INJURIES!

The Benefits of Ice for Injury

The use of ice, or very cold temperatures, in a therapeutic capacity is known as cryotherapy. It is effective because it causes vasoconstriction, or narrowing of the blood vessels. The muscles contract, inflammation is lowered, and pain signals are reduced.

On the other hand, ice can make muscle tension and spasms worse.

The Benefits of Heat for Injury

Heat therapy works in the opposite manner as ice therapy. Heat Therapy is a vasodilator, which increases circulation by expanding the blood vessels. This reduces pain and relieves cramping or aching muscles.

It also draws nutrients (via the blood) to the injured area, aiding the healing process, while helping the body’s cells get rid of waste products.

Alternating Hold and Cold Therapy Benefits

Clearly, both ice and heat bring something to the table in terms of pain relief and healing. Sometimes, choosing one over the other simply may not provide enough relief, which is where contrast therapy comes in.

With this gentle method, you can simultaneously reduce inflammation, stimulate circulation, and loosen tight muscles, thereby easing your pain.

A Step-by-Step Guide to Hot and Cold Therapy

Once you have decided on a method of contrast therapy, you should prepare your delivery methods of choice. You’ll also require a clock or stopwatch to time each application, although you don’t need to be too precise.

In general, it’s best to use a contrast therapy ratio of one minute of cold for every three to four minutes of heat. Repeat the alternation between hot and cold approximately three times.

Beginning and ending with ice is recommended to quell inflammation. Topical pain relievers, such as Comfortably Numb® work amazingly well since they cool first (with Menthol & Wintergreen) to dull the pain - and then heat secondly (Cayenne & Ginger) to relax the muscles.

Here is a basic pattern of how to apply contrast therapy:

  • Begin with 1 minute of cold
  • Apply 3 minutes of heat
  • Apply 1 minute of cold
  • Apply 3 minutes of heat
  • Apply 1 minute of cold
  • Apply 3 minutes of heat
  • Finish with 1 minute of cold

Hot and cold therapy should be carried out one to two times per day until the injury has healed. If you’re not seeing improvements within two to three days, consult your doctor, as stronger treatments may be necessary.
