|100% Cotton Cherry Pit Pack from The Boys Store|
I shall never look at a cherry pit (or any other pit) in the same way again. Nature is wonderful and there doesn't seem to be anything she produces that doesn't have a purpose.
Filled inside this 100% cotton pack are clean and dried cherry pits. Pop this into the microwave for a couple minutes and you have a warm and safe humid heat for 20-30 minutes. The fabric prevents burns and since the heat naturally diminishes you don't have to worry about falling asleep with it (as you do with electric heating pads).
But wait -- you can put it in a plastic bag, place it in the freezer for awhile, and now you have a cold pack for swelling injuries -- or simply to cool off in harsh heat. Once again, it lasts for about 20-30 minutes.
The Cherry Pit Pack here is great for warming kids up at bedtime on those cold winter nights. A perfect sleeping companion.
Cherry Pit heating has been used by Native Americans for centuries...and now they shall be used by our family for years to come. They are also available in smaller sizes -- which are great for coat pockets!
Special thanks to The Boys Store for introducing me to this wonderful and natural heating method and for sending me one.
