FlaxPack: Lavender & Flaxseed Hot & Cold Compress
Fourth Phase FlaxPack is a multipurpose hot and cold compress that provides soothing relief to new moms during the Fourth Trimester. Made with Organic flaxseed and lavender leaves, heat it up to soothe and relax sore muscles and release tension while breastfeeding, or place it in a freezer to reduce inflammation around the pelvic area.
The lavender leaves deliver a calming, pleasant aroma, help with regulating emotions, release tension, and provide support to the pelvic area after a C-section delivery. Its lightweight design makes it easy to use while on the go. Spot clean only.

Flax Seed (Linum usitatissimum):
Kiss pain goodbye with this powerful ingredient. The high oil content of flax seeds creates a heat forcefield that maintains its temperature and keeps this pack warm or cool, longer. This allows you to relax or fall asleep while wearing our FlaxPack and not have to worry about constantly re-warming. These packs can be used hot to relieve cramps, pain, strains, and other ailments. Cooling your pack helps ease inflammation on the skin or deep within your muscles.
Lavender leaves (Lavandula Angustifolia):
This aromatherapy staple is excellent for relaxing the body and mind. The scent of lavender has long been thought to reduce stress and anxiety while assisting with emotional balance. Heating your FlaxPack releases the restorative powers of lavender that can boost memory and brain function—and help mitigate body aches and pains, like headaches.
To relax muscles:
Warm in the microwave for 10-15 second, then let it cool for 2 seconds before placing on your body.
To Reduce inflammation:
Place in a freezer bag to freeze for 2-4 hours. Let it defrost for a few minutes before placing on your body.
Clean with damp cloth. Do not immerse in water.
