here are instructions and poem, that were posted on a list I was on. (^:
This little pillow filled with rice,
Is such a comforting device.
Microwave for 2 to 3 minutes on HIGH
and kiss those aches and pains goodbye.
Apply it to the troubled spot,
The heat will ease the pain a lot.
Or warm those little toes, so cold.
You'll find this nice to have and to hold.
Or freeze it for a little while,
And fix that boo-boo up in style.
Instead of a compress made of ice,
Use this pillow filled with rice.
No-Sew Directions for HeatSocks
Take a pair of athletic socks. Pour 3 cups of long grain rice in each one. Close with a (sturdy)
rubber band. Put them in microwave for 1-1/2 minutes per sock.
Use for: Foot warmers, hand warmers, heating pad. To clean, pour the rice out & wash the socks.
Tips: DON'T USE SOCKS WITH HOLES. Also don't use wire twist ties unless you like watching fireworks in your microwave.

I made these for Christmas last year. They were hit!
I made "pillows" of various sizes and filled them with deer corn.
The scent is comforting and the corn holds heat for a long time.
I heated them for various times depending on how big the pillows were.
I also hear that apple deer corn smells wonderful, but they had sold out
it at the feed stores in our area.
