In my area, we have some grocery stores that have bulk foods. If not there check out health food stores. BUT if you can not find any, rice (regular not instant) can be used in its place. I am assuming that this is for a "heating pad"?

Flax seed is more expensive than rice. When heated flax seed does not (I am told) have a oder, rice does, not a bad one (in fact DGD loves the smell of my rice filled heating pad), just a little different.

My two cents worth here :):) Go to your 'good food store' or whatever its called in your area. Buy RAW BUCKWHEAT GROATS.... buckwheat holds the heat better and longer, doesn't smell and lasts forever. If you get a wild hair for a certain scent (i.e. lavendar) the buckwheat will take the scent great. I make tons of these bags every winter. Can heat them in the microwave for 3-5 minutes and they are awesome.

I have used scents in a bunch of mine. I've saved rose petals from our roses and added a bit of the rose oil to them and tossed them in the buckwheat bags. Also lavendar is very popular, so I use some dried lavendar flowers and also a bit of the oil. I've bought the oils from our health food store, from Michaels and Joanns. You can mix crushed cloves, nutmeg, cinammon, etc. or even cut up vanilla beans. Whatever makes you happy :) :):) Its one way to clean out your spice cupboard hahahaa.

It was near the flour area I think. At least I think it was flax seed. Is there such a thing as flx flour? Probably will go there tomorrow and I will check for sure. :)

Cathy what do you mean when you say that you can find buckwheat in your good food store? We have Ingles, Krogers, Publix and Walmart. We also have a few big farmers markets that sell from meat to all kinds of international foods and american of course. Do you think I need to go the farmers market?
