Are you using a store bought cream or lotion to help soothe sore muscles? A better solution is to apply a bit of heat in the form of a hot bath of a heating pad instead. There is no need to spend money on a new heating pad as you can make a DIY heating pad pad at home.

The best thing about a DIY heating pad is it can also be used as a simple hand warmer. All you need to make a heating pad is some scrap fabric. You do not even need a sewing machine for this project as you can just use a needle and thread,
A bit of uncooked rice and some essential oils will be used for the interior of your DIY heating pad. An ideal choice of essential oils is lavender, peppermint, or tea tree. Simply heat the pad in a microwave to create a suitable amount of heat. Instructions to make your own DIY heating pad can be found on livingchiconthecheap.com here...
