With longer days there’s more time for exercise or at least better intention to get back into an exercise regimen. These all-natural hot and cold packs are a novel solution to address any related aches and swellings. Invented originally as packs to warm children’s school lunches, they evolved into heat treatment packs. The upcycled cloth, made of natural, latex-free, medium-weight cotton denim holds…wait for it…cherry pits, which maintain their heat longer than rice, beans or flax. And, unlike using rice or beans, the pits are byproducts of utilized food sources. Once the cushions are warmed in a microwave for 60-second intervals1 the heat gets “trapped” in the hollow of the cherry stones, creating a lasting heat pack. The pack itself is soft and flexible and though the pits are hard they contour nicely with a soothing feel. The packs can also be used cold: freeze for several hours to acheve a gentle yet effective cooling sensation, akin to a “wet wash cloth that stays cool”. The pits used are well sourced – leftover pits from cherries used for pies, preserves and fillings made in Michigan and sent to Jersey City. The packs can be washed and dried with your regular laundry and will still last for years. Other variations include contoured neck warmers, back huggers and eye masks in cotton terry for both adults and children that can be custom infused with aromatic oils and used with elastics. A smart, re-usable solution for home or travel in lieu of heating synthetic materials and contents that may leak, using re-usable plastic ice packs that drip when thawing, repeatedly buying disposable patches, or applying messy, pungent creams.
1Cherry pits are flammable so 60 second intervals must be used to take caution not to overheat.
