Island herb brown rice body warmer wrapped in indigo cloth “Aino Meguri”
Amami Oshima, also known as the island of medicinal herbs. There are countless herbs on this island that come from the blessings of nature in our daily lives. A brown rice body warmer made by carefully hand-picking and drying fresh herbs that grow naturally in the fields and are full of vitality. It contains plenty of natural island herbs and is soothing with a natural and pleasant scent. The indigo cloth that is wrapped is hand-dyed one by one with Ryukyu indigo, and it is a one-of-a-kind item that is born once in a while. It is a deep blue that makes you feel the sea and sky of Amami and nature. Indigo is also expected to have antibacterial and deodorant effects.
In brown rice body warmers, the water from the plump rice turns into steam and dissipates heat, so the heat spreads not only to the surface of the body but also to the depths of the body, warming the core warmly. If you leave it for a while after use, the brown rice will absorb the moisture in the air and recover, so it is an environmentally friendly item that can be used over and over again.
