WheatyBags Large Forehead and Eye heat pack is specially designed to rest comfortably on the head. If you suffer from tension, headaches or other ailments that effect the head and eyes then placing the product over the problem area could provide comforting warmth and pain relief.

The heat packs are British made and available in many fabric and colour choices. They can also be personalised with the text of your choice to make a lovely personalised gift.

Heat loss During Testing

When heated to the recommended guidelines (at 1000w), we tested the product fully and found the following:

  • The Forehead & Eye hot pack reached a maximum 61 degrees which is a lovely comfortable warmth.
  • That it retained a useful heat for well over an hour depending on the conditions of use.
  • After 1 heating cycle and 1 hour of continual use, this microwave heat pack had only lost 42% of its peak temperature heat which we consider a very good length of time.

The approximate weight of the heat pack is 400gms.

 

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.

600w - 750w RATING - 60 SECONDS

800w - 1000w RATING - 45 SECONDS

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.

    Really helps sleep This eye mask is perfect for keeping out the light as it moulds itself around the face, the straps working well to keep it in place. I bought the lavender one and it smells beautiful. Really recommended as an aid to relaxation and sleep. It is so generously sized that you can just cuddle it as a hot water bottle too.

    Old faithful has an upgrade! My husband and I used a Wheaty Bag for years for headaches and it finally gave up the ghost; we were very upset as it had been with us through headaches, illness, strained muscles etc. However, we wiped our tears and ordered a new larger version and we love it; we even included the lavender option and we are so glad we did. We will never forget Old Faithful but we love our new Wheatybag (nickname to be decided on)

    Just what I was looking for I have constant neck & shoulder pain, particularly in bed, and this little bag works wonders at bringing speedy relief. I use it heated and it stays warm enough until I manage to fall asleep. Great product and very well made.

    RELAXING WEIGHTY EYE MASK I love this wheaty bag - I use it as an eye mask for relaxing and particularly like the way the weight enables it to fall into all the contours of my face, blocking out the light. Mine also has the lavender scent which I love!

    Well made - and easy to use Blepharitis is more an nuisance or inconvenience than painful, and it's no comfort to be told it's age-related and difficult to eliminate! But, medical advice suggests heat treatment and this wheatybag is a v good way to provide it. Far, far better and much more convenient than a hot wet flannel - and easy to use. It's no criticism of the product, but only time will tell if the eye condition improves. Certainly wheatybags are better value than similar products I found on other web site.

    Best heat pad for my eyes that I have ever used I have an eye condition that requires me to use a heated pad on my eyes every day. I was flying with only cabin luggage which meant I couldn't take the gel pack that I usually use. Having tried the wheaty bag, it is much more comfortable with a more even heat than the gel pack. I shall certainly use a Wheaty bag from now on.

    Just the Job!

    My wrist gives me a lot of pain, especially during damp wet weather. So I pop the little bag in the microwave, heat it up a little and get great relief for quite a while, as the bag retains the heat for a long time.

    Very pleased!

    My wife and I were extremely pleased with the purchase of our 2 wheat bags and the fact that postage was free together with the speed of delivery prompted us to readily recommend this Company to anyone. The quality and construction of the bags seems extremely satisfactory.
