Vida here (means “beloved one” in Hebrew) and creator of Beloved Packs. I first started making hot + cold rice packs in 2014 as Christmas gifts for family and friends, they are very simple and effective tools for pain and stress relief.
Yet, the Beloved Pack story has more layers. I have long desired to create spaces that bring comfort, peace, and relief, especially for women and people of color due to the amount of stress associated with all the 'isms' out there.
Using a Beloved Pack is one of the ways you can combat stress and contribute to the healing process. They are reminders to both give and receive love that heals, it's better than any drug.
You are dearly loved.
How do they work?
Have you ever used an ice pack or electric heating pad? Well, these packs provide similar benefits! Rice is used inside the pack to hold the desired temperature for about 25 - 30 minutes which can aid in increasing circulation and reducing inflammation.
Stick them in the microwave for soothing warmth or in the freezer for cool relief.
Use for: menstrual cramps, muscle tension, sprains, strains, joint stiffness, postpartum care, arthritis, swollen lymph nodes, cystic acne, and more.
