I had bought one 8 years ago at a show and dont remember the name of the company. I bought a small bag for sinus headaches and works great, i have it in the freezer. I am dealing with shoulder pain and have done physical therapy in the past and noticed that heat treatments/packs help the pain. I'm tired of buying those expensive patches adn was wondering if i could use the one i have for my shoulder. Again i dont know if i can put in the microwave so i'm scared to try it.
Anyways does anybody know of a store or a good website that i can order another pillow for my headaches and one for my shoulder pain? Like i said the one i have lasted me this long but its time for a new one its looking pretty beat up.
I"m open to any suggestions as well . Thanks in advance

If you have a sewing machine, you can make your own! You don't have to be wonderfully crafty. Just buy a small bit of muslin or other 100% cotton material and some flannel. Make a bag the size you'd like out of the muslin and fill it 3/4 full with dry, uncooked rice or flax seed. Then make a slightly larger cover out of the flannel.
You can add dried herbs directly into the bag or put a couple of drops of your favorite essential oil on a cotton ball and place inside the cover.
The muslin bag of rice or seed can be microwaved. But don't microwave essential oils - add them after the bag is warmed.
If you're not interested in making your own, here's a nice website with a large variety of styles... http://www.aromatherapyricebags.com/
