So while using a Neti pot keeps the nasty mucous stuff to a minimum, I still get horrible sinus headaches and pain when the barometric pressure changes. Last night was one of those night. Desperate for relief from the "brain being attacked with an icepick" sinus pain, I googled DIY pocket warmer/bed buddies type crafts. I found this little tutorial. http://tipnut.com/make-your-own-microwave-heating-pad/
Since it was a little after 3am, I didn't want to fire up the sewing machine so I went looking for 100% cotton sock. Luckily I had some so I filled it with rice and nuked it until it was warm. Then laid down in bed with it over my face. I was happy that it really helped take away the pain, enough that I could fall asleep.
Today I did a bunch of sewing including fleece socks for the hubby. I found a cute scrap of Kerry Beary fabric that was the perfect size for my sinus relief rice bag.
