Trying to make healing packs... could be just hot and cold -- preferably ones that will work without being heated... willow bark etc.

Healing packs can made from most herbs. It would just depend on the usage or reason for needing one. Herbal packs could come in many forms and would commonly referred to as pillows or sachets or poultices and compresses where as a liquid form would be referred to as a fomentation. Some are applied cold and some are applied hot, again depending on the herbs used and the reason for using them. The herbs could be used in a whole form or a powdered form, again depending on usage.
