Lavender Infused Diy Rice bag


Oh my gosh I can’t tell you enough. These rice bags are the bomb. Not just for the cold winter months to use as heat-packs but I’ve also seen them used as ice-packs and aromatherapy.Β  How awesome is that a 3 in one DIY. SWEET!!! I remember these rice bags from when we were kids. I grew up in Alaska and I gotta tell ya 60 Below Celsius doesn’t feel really good. COLD FEET was all we had and us kids grew very found of our moms inventive little rice warmers during the winter months.

Last Christmas I made these for all my neighbors and they absolutely loved them. That’s when I found out that you could also use them as ice-packs because one of my neighbors were talking about it.Β  You know it ain’t good unless your kids love it, and guess what?!!…;) My little cuddle bug asks for one every night. πŸ˜€

What you’ll need

(scroll down for VIDEO)

  • rice
  • dried lavender
  • fabric
  • sewing machine
  • scissors
  • pins

This isn’t a super hard project. It only takes me about 15 minutes to make one and I love how inexpensive they are.Β  You could go with any cottonΒ  fabric. I used linen. I would stay away from leather or the faker fabrics that have a lot of polyester because you don’t want it to melt in the mcirowave. OH and MAJOR factor… you will need a microwave to heat these packs.Β  I know that we didn’t always have one growing up. Mom went through eating healthy phases and she’d toss it out ,but then give it a few months and Dad would buy a new one ..:) lol.

I had so much fun making these. YES I even went out into our little forest and brought home some treasures. I love weird props πŸ˜‰ Mother nature definitely didn’t let me down πŸ˜‰

    • πŸ˜€ So glad you liked them. I gotta say these rice packs are awesome ;D My little guy asks to warm one up every-night for feet warmers. Oooh how exciting I would love to see them tag me @lilyardor on instagram when you make some πŸ˜€ .

  • Oh I love rice warmers. I’ve never tried them with lavender though, definitely need to add it next time I make some; i bet it smells great. Thanks for sharing this!

    • The channels definitely help keep the rice in place. I used it mostly to keep my feet warm in the winter so it works out perfect. I’m so glad you liked it. πŸ™‚

  • Hi, thank you, I did this some time back with herb seeds. Never with rice! I wonder, doesn’t the rice cook in the microwave? And many minuts do you heat it?

    • Hi Rory. If overheated it could burn the rice. I usually do 2-3 minutes per rice bag depending on the size. It smells very pleasant with the lavender in it. πŸ˜€

    • I would have to say I did about 1/2 teaspoon per cup of rice, but even that could be to much. It depends on how much you like lavender. Keep in mind it won’t smell strong until it’s heated up.

  • I luv the smell of lavender. And I use rice heat packs a lot. To add lavender to these rice packs was a great idea. Thx for sharing this idea. I’ll be sure to use it pretty soon.

    • Thank you Melody. So glad to hear you liked this idea. πŸ˜€ Yes they smell way better with lavender rather then the rice alone. I’m not a fan of the rice alone at all. πŸ˜€
