The power of Lavender 

Creates calm and lifts mood: Lavender has been named one of the few alternative treatments for anxiety; proven to promote calm and reduce anxiety compared to conventional medication. Lavender assists with the treatment of depression, naturally provides comfort during a pregnancy, and provides relief pre- and post medical procedures.

Induces sleep: Lavender improves sleep cycles and has also shown to aid in the treatment of restless leg syndrome, which causes many to suffer from sleepless nights.

Improves memory: Lavender helps to calm the mind allowing you to focus on the task at hand.

Why Flaxseed? 

Whole Flaxseed provides a soothing, moist heat which has proven to promote healing. Flaxseeds (which are flower seeds) are used in Flaxi bags rather than grains, as they contain 30 - 40% oil which remains inside the seed and can be warmed over and over again. Other treatment products will lose their ability to retain heat over time, as the water in them eventually evaporates. Flaxseed will never produce the “cooked grain” smell that other grain-based products create when heated over multiple occasions. Additionally, the reduced weight of Flaxseed provides a gentle and comforting texture to our Flaxi bags.
