Dried beans hold the heat much longer.

 

To soften it up a bit you can do a mix of beans and rice.

You can use feed corn, too. Don't use popcorn, thoughbiggrinbounce.gif. The larger the filling the longer it holds heat, but it's a little lumpier and not quite as smooth to mold to a body part. You can also put in some essential oils or herbs. I have one that is filled with corn and it always smelled like popcorn when I heated it up, but then I heated it up too much and now it smells like burnt popcorn. Still works great, though.

I have tried canola/rapeseed on a market last week.

 

I liked it very much- very smooth and hold the heat well.

I bought some that had cherry pits and they worked well though a bit lumpy. Recently, I put lentils in one of hubby's old socks. It worked great. I really liked it better, not lumpy at all.

Oh my goodness. The thought makes me really lol!  

 

I've done the rice, but I'm really interested in the lentils.     Do they have a 'smell' when warmed up?

I have one I bought that's filled with flax seeds. Too long in the microwave *once* and it smells burned in a bad way. My other homemade one is just plain white rice with a few drops of lavender EO.

i read somewhere that barley is really good for holding heat, but now that i'm looking it up online i can't find that again.  did find some that talk about lentils staying hot for 15-20 minutes, which is WAY longer than my rice bags ever did!  going to the store tomorrow to pick some up as i need a new supply of rice bags:)
