Linseed packs, also called flaxseed packs, provide soothing comfort and ease the ache of pelvic pain, sore muscles or provide extra heat during cold days or nights, especially when heated.
Linseeds are from a plant called Linum usitassimum. These tiny power-seeds contain polyunsaturated fatty aicds, mucins and minerals. Apart from topical use, linseeds are also consumed internally for hormone balance, namely oestrogen balance, inflammation and for the nutritional benefits of the good oils.
These packs are very effective for relieving the inflammation, pain and cramping associated with endometriosis, fibroids, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and dysmenorrhoea (period pain).
The high concentration of good oil in linseeds means that the pack will hold heat longer, especially under a blanket.
Also, because other grains contain more water they dry out faster than the oils in linseeds meaning these packs have a longer life.
This is less messy and time-consuming than the castor oil packs and although not used extensively, is very effective.
