    I've had a paraffin bath for quite a while now & absolutely swear by it! The refills are getting hard to find though. Thanx Drugstore.com! My tired, old, arthritic hands thank you, too!
    Someone else wrote a review that it didn't help at all but I'm curious, how long did you use it? You need to leave it on as long as possible. I wrap (over the liner) with a thick towel to hold the heat in like I was taught in physical therapy.
    If heat doesn't help, try cold pack therapy.

    I bought a Homedics brand paraffin wax unit elsewhere only because the model I wanted was
    not available here. I have other Homedics products and they (and the unit I bought) work fine. No problem. Mine came with 2 lbs. of unscented wax.
    It melted within 2 hours (there was a small piece left although the green light came on, that was no problem). But the "unscented" wax has a horrible chemical smell. I am going to search for a scented wax to use instead.

    Comments about HoMedics Paraffin Wax Pearls, 2 lb:

    I use the products when my hands ache from arthritis. Its very easy to use. It take about 4-5 hours for wax to melt so you have to remember to plug it in early. I highly recommend this for anyone with arthritis in their hands. Relief is only a few dips away.

        this is easy to use, and not as messy as I thought it would be. I put hand cream on my hands and dip them in the wax for extra moisture.

          My daughter has JRA and we use this on an almost daily basis. It melts very smoothly and it 'peels' easily. We are very happy with it.

          I have a homedics paraffin spa treatment. I love this when my hands get chapped. It also is very soothing to my hands when they are sore and stiff. The warmth of the wax is a wonderful luxury.

          I love my wax dipper. The pellets are nice, way better then using just a block. It's wax, nothing different, no smell.

            Have bought refills for the paraffin bath before, but never had black flakes in it. From the first melt down, never had been used. Is that new??? Always had it clear.

              unscented is a good thing.. If you want you could ad your own scent. I like that it comes in pebbles not a solid block.

                Even the moderately cold winters in So. Ca. make
                my arthritic fingers hurt. A hot paraffin treatment
                completely takes away the pain & leaves the skin
                on my hands soft.
