The Benefits Of Lavender Neck Wraps

By Jeannie Chapman


There are many factors that one may experience through their daily activities that can cause stress, strain and tension in the muscles. Sometimes, this can be so severe that those tightened nerves can lead to additional health concerns like headaches. Respite from the discomfort can be found in natural herbal products such as lavender neck wraps.

Versatility is just one advantage of using wraps. Part of that is because they are made in such a way that allows them to be loose and flexible so that they are capable of conforming to the curves and contours of the body. This makes it possible to use them on most any part of the body including the neck, shoulders, arms, elbows, knees and wrists as well as the lower back and stomach.

The cloth pouches are filled with a combination of ingredients that bring together both hot-cold therapy and aromatherapy. Dried lavender surrounds the user with a soft fragrance that is known for stimulating the relaxation center of the brain. The herb is mixed with wheat, buckwheat hulls, flax or grape seed or other such substance which regulates the temperature.

With the one product, an individual is able to provide tired, aching muscles with either chilly relief or a deep penetrating warmth. For a drier, easier to handle alternative to the traditional ice pack, the herbal package can be cooled in the freezer for a few hours and will stay cool for hours after being removed. For heat therapy, a few seconds inside the microwave will provide a safer option to a heating pad.

The grainy substances are what give the product its ability to deliver varied temperature therapies. Being fibrous, they naturally soak in the air that surrounds them, be it cold or hot, and release it slowly. As such, one now has the benefit of having both a heating pad and ice pack all in one convenient pouch.

The science of aromatherapy is explore through the addition of dried herbs to the grain filling. Lavender has one of the most popular scents, known throughout the world for its amazing powers to impact the way a person feels. The soothing fragrance can calm the mind, which leads to promoting relaxation and can result in one being relieved of stress, depression and anxiety while relating the heart rate and lowering one's blood pressure.

The simple concept of their design is another reason these items are so flexible. Though available in many styles, the pouches are generally much longer than they are wide and are filled loosely with the grains and herbs, making them feel similar to bean bags. The advantage of this is that they are able to be wrapped around a curved surface, like an elbow, knee or neck just as easily as they can be laid across the stomach or lower back.

Anyone looking for a safe, natural way to combat the negative effects of a stressful situation could benefit from the use of lavender neck wraps. The beautiful and calming aroma of the herbs encourages relaxation while the grains deliver temperature treatment. This is just one of many homeopathic remedies and treatments.
