Flaxseed is an herbal flower seed, rather than a food product. This eliminates the “food odor” you get with other fillers. Unlike rice or other grain products, (which are mostly water) flaxseed is 30-40% oil, which remains inside the seed to be warmed again and again. Most grain products lose their ability to retain heat as the water cooks out of the grains. When heated, a flaxseed wrap can retain heat for up to 40 minutes.  The benefits from the heat retention provides a moist heat to allow for healing. Flaxseed is also a smaller seed, allowing it to shape into the contours of your body.
