WheatyBags Linseed Eye Heat Pack is manufactured to order in the UK and can help to provide relief to those suffering from MGD, Blepharitis or dry eyes. We have designed this product to conform perfectly to the eye area, maximising coverage and ensuring that the heat produced can target the affected areas.

We fill each eye mask with a generous amount of triple cleaned, UK-grown natural linseed. Linseed makes for a wonderful filling as it contains natural oils that enable the bag to stay warm for the necessary duration of time required. This is much better than using a hot flannel, which gets cold very quickly.

We offer a stunning array of cotton, polycotton and fleece fabrics for you to choose from. Please take care in choosing a fabric and colour choice that is best suited to you. For those that are looking to avoid synthetic materials, we recommend our all natural cotton fabric, available in Natural and Bubblegum Pink variations.

All of our WheatyBags are British Safety Standards (BS8433) compliant and have undergone rigorous testing to ensure their safety. Provided with this product are a full set of instructions that cater for different microwaves and their relative power ratings.

REMOVABLE COVER OPTION. If you choose to have a removable cover for cleaning, the cover will be made in the fabric and colour of your choice with the inner heat pack being made from natural cotton. Please note that the optional fastenings, if selected with the removable cover option will be attached to the inner eye-shaped heat pack and the elastic fastenings will come through special openings in the rectangular shaped cover.

 

How long should the heat pack be put into the microwave or chill in the freezer?

Please click on the “Instructions” tab online or the labelling on the product on arrival.

Is it normal that my heat pack feels damp when microwaving?

When you first microwave the heat pack the contents inside will feel damp. This will subside after a few heating cycles and is quite normal. Do not overheat the wheat bag to attempt to dry it out.

What happens if I microwave the heat pack for too long or it burns?

Please be very careful not to overheat the heat pack. If overheated they can catch fire which is very dangerous. Overheating can be caused by food or contamination from your microwave so it is important that the microwave is clean before you heat the product.

If overheating occurs, remove from the microwave and put in a safe place while it cools. Do not use again until the product has returned to room temperature. If it is giving off a burnt smell, or has small burn marks on the fabric, you have overheated the product. Please throw away the heat pack being careful that the product is not burning. A replacement product would then have to be purchased.

Can I wash my Heat Pack?

Do not place the full heat pack in the washing machine or get the contents wet as it can damage the product. It is advised that you surface clean with a damp cloth or sponge to clean the product. If the product becomes wet then it needs to be dried out before the wheat inside germinates and we suggest placing the product in a warm room to dry at room temperature. If the wheat inside does germinate then we do not recommend that you use the wheat bag.

Can I purchase removable covers that can be washed for my heat pack?

On some of our products you will see the option to purchase a removeable cover for cleaning. If this is shown as an option then this cover is removable from the main heat pack and can be washed with like colours in the washing machine or by hand at a low temperature of 30 to 40 degrees.

Is it possible to warm the heat pack other than the microwave?

No. Our heat packs are designed to be exclusively heated in a microwave.

How do I fit a larger heat pack in my small microwave?

Some of our products are larger when flat than the size of smaller microwaves. It is ok to “scrunch” up the heat pack lightly to fit into the microwave but is important not to fold the pack in half tightly as this can create hot spots when heating.

Are these heat packs suitable for young children?

No. We do not recommend that heat packs are given the very young children under the age of 3 years old. Adult supervision should always be provided and should only be heated by an adult with great care.

TO USE COLD :

  • Wrap the pack in a plastic bag (to keep it clean).
  • Place in the FRIDGE for 1-3 hours.
  • Remove from plastic bag before use.

DO NOT PLACE THIS ITEM IN THE FREEZER to use on the eyes.

This product is designed as a gentle warming or chilling product to be applied over the face to ease discomfort and we suggest that if you are unsure of its use you ask your Doctor for advice.

    Perfect for Dry Eyes My optician recommended a heat pad along with eye drops for my dry eye condition. I found WheatyBags online and couldn’t be happier with the product. I highly recommend it. I also purchased a washable cover which is a must have if you have cats like mine, who use it as a heated pillow.

    Good basic product I was advised to use a hot, wet sponge to bathe my eyes. However, that wasn't the easiest thing to do so I bought the Wheatybag - and that was much, much better. Quick and easy to warm, kept warm much longer and was very soothing. Wish I'd bought one with a strap to keep it in place, but at least it made me sit still whilst using it. Not really sure how much advantage there was to 'buy one get one free' - unless you know someone else to give a gift to, but it was worth buying one and I would recommend it.

    Buy it! I have used eye masks for many years and thought I would give these a go. I honestly thought at the price that if I didn't like it it wouldn't matter. Surprise! These are much better than more expensive ones I have used on the past. Won't buy anything else now. Very happy.

    Great for relaxation I ordered this product on recommendation from a friend as I suffer from dry eyes. I have only used it for short time but already feel the benefit of it. It is also so quick and easy to use My two daughters in law have also ordered them now, mainly just for tired eyes and relaxation and hopefully they will be as pleased as me with the results.

    Sooth dry eyes My optician recommended warmth treatment to sooth my dry eyes and improve tear duct function. I find these neat little linseed-filled bags work well - I use one for 5-10 minutes in the evening and my eyes are so much more comfortable when I wake in the mornings. They only take 30 seconds to heat in the microwave, and smell wonderful too. Glad I found them.

    First time I love this eye heat pack. I customised mine with the lavender scent and had the tartan print cover put on it. I did a lot of research before actually placing the order with this company and I highly recommend it to anyone with dry eyes.

    Eye heat pack Much easier to use, and more effective, than the warm wet flannel recommended by the eye consultant as a treatment for Dry Eye.

    Glorious relief! I have had my eye heat mask for a week and already I am delighted with the soothing relief that it gives to my dry tired eyes. Having tried so many eye drops always hoping that the next one would work a miracle I am glad to say that the miracle is now in my treasured eye mask! It really does work.
