Homemade Ice Pack

I just had surgery for a broken femur bone and am going through ice without an ending. Does anyone have the recipe for homemade ice pack gel?

Buy a couple of large bags of frozen peas. The package molds to any shape and they can be refrozen and used again and again. I used to use them for my tension headaches. (08/21/2010)

Yes, you can use packages of frozen vegetables for an ice pack. Peas are usually recommended but I think others would work, too, like corn? And then there are also re-usable frozen ice packs with plastic containers and some sort of chemical inside. (08/21/2010)

1/2 alcohol and 1/2 water. Put in a freezer bag or 2. Makes the gel type. Does not totally freeze and contours to your body. (08/24/2010)

After losing my leg I asked at my Orthopedic office for 1 of their gel packs and they gave me one. I also just found some at our dollar store. I hope you get well soon. (08/25/2010)

Try bags of peas, or sometimes I use the cooling packs I get for my casserole dishes.

But if you don't like that, here is a site with several recipes:


I would double bag them with the top of one at the bottom of the outer bag. Good luck. (08/26/2010)
