Here’s a great way to relax, cosy up and ease your aches this winter. Swheat Bags from Arwen Ace are sweetened with lovely lavender, to aid relaxation while the wheat does its warming work. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes and have specially sewn channels to make them super mouldable to your needs.

Arwen tells us she’s been gifting her Swheat Bags to the kids at Ronald McDonald House in Auckland and Christchurch, and the feedback is that they’re loving them. Awesome work, Arwen!
