    I have one that I bought the 'MagicBag' and there is only just over 2 lbs of rice in it. I would think that 6 lbs would be awfully heavy on your shoulders and neck. www.magicbag.com

    Jan,

    I've used lavender also in the rice bags I made. A little lavender goes a looooong way.

    this is frustrating. i just saw the one she made somewhere and thought i either saved a link to it or printed it out. i was going to look and see how much rice it called for. maybe i'll find it later.

    Once you microwave the corn or rice no bugs will get in there. i have made several of these corn or rice bags and i go to the feed store and ask for field corn. It is whole corn that they feed to animals. I don't know of another product to use but these two.

    Wow! I'd go 1/2 less than that on the lavender - it can get overpowering. I like lavender but I don't want to get knocked out by it.

    When I made rice bags I think I used a 2 lb. bag of rice to 1/8 or less cup lavender - maybe even less lavender.

    I too, use "pearl barley" purchased at the bulk food store. My DH loves them & uses them daily BUT so far, we have not "nuked" them, he uses them from the freezer for cold packs. I am sure they would work equally as well in the microwave.

    Wheat or barley work, I use the cheapest rice I can get bulk or packaged. I like the smell better than the smell of the other grains.

    I don't like mine scented at all. i bought one and it had some sort of scent in it that i did not want to smell like, i returned it and got one unscented. i have a long roll type one from JC Penneys years ago that I also like, unscented.
    STill, one day i want to make one of these. i just won't add any scent.

    It is a different kind of corn. It is for feeding animals, deer/cattle etc. Not for human consumption!
