How it works: Heat penetrates a few centimeters into the tissue and stimulates the skins sensory receptors when the tissue temperature rises. Heat decreases transmission of pain signals to the brain and helps to increase blood flow to the injured area, which in turn expedites healing. LAVENDER: Soothes the nerves (anxiety), improves sleep (insomnia), stabilize mood (depression) and relieves pain (analgesic) During the heat process the fragrance is released and by inhaling the lavender stimulates the part of the brain connected to the smell The molecules that enter the nose pass to the lungs, and from there, to other parts of the body FLAXSEED Provides a gentle moist heat which promotes healing. Flaxseeds are flower seeds, rather than grains, so they contain 30 - 40% oil which remains inside the seed to be warmed again and again
