I am one of those people who feels like they are cold all the time! It doesn’t help living in the Northeast, when winters seem to drag on forever. Even though it is only November, I have relied on my Thermal-Aid pack quite a bit, as we have had our fair share of cold weather!
Thermal-Aid offers a variety of packs that are good for both heating and cooling, for both adults and children. I tried a medium sectional, and my kids tried a bear.
I absolutely love my medium sectional! It measures about 12″x12″, and it is a substantial warmer. I have used small warmers in the past that just didn’t provide enough warmth, and certainly not for long enough. This warmer heats up in just a few minutes, and it holds heat for quite some time. Which means less trips to the microwave, especially when I am snuggled in bed and I don’t want to get out from under the covers!
I love snuggling up with my warmer. On a cold day, it is the perfect companion on the couch with a good book, and I lay on it or put it in my lap. This is a must too if you are sore – I have already used it when I have been sore from hours of raking leaves, and I know I will be using this when I have backaches from shoveling snow in the winter!
Both my kids were really excited about the purple Thermal-Aid bear that we received, and I will definitely be purchasing another so that they each have one. There are so many animals and different color bears, they pored over the Thermal-Aid brochure for ages! They love using this at night, especially after they get out of the bath on a chilly night. This is also a great way to fall asleep – snuggling with a warm bear – and I think it is a wonderful sleep aid.
One of the things that Thermal-Aid is great for is when you are sick. Last year, my daughter had meningitis, and she was absolutely miserable. She was cold, she had lots of aches and pains, and we had to cautiously use a heating pad with her. It would have been wonderful to have a Thermal-Aid warmer both at home and when she was in the hospital to help offer some comfort, without the worries of it being too hot or having to make sure no one trips on a cord.
Each Thermal-Aid product has a different recommended microwave heating time. The zoo animals should be heated at 30-second increments, and the medium sectional is 3-4 minutes. Do not allow the Thermal-Aid packs to touch the side of the microwave, and be careful not to overheat.
Alternately, you can freeze your Thermal-Aid products for cooling purposes. I know I will be using my Thermal-Aid year round!
These packs are washable, including the zoo animals! You can hand wash and allow to drip dry. Although I love my sectional, I think it would be cute to have a cover, so I may sew a little “pillowcase” for it. I would pay a little extra to choose a cute fabric cover for my Thermal-Aid sectional.
Years ago, I received a homemade microwave corn warmer as a gift. I was thrilled, and used it daily – but within one season, the corn became burnt, blackened, and had a very terrible smell. Thermal-Aid is different from other heat/cool packs because their corn is specifically engineered to maximize use:
Thermal-Aid is a revolutionary, 100% natural therapeutic heating/cooling treatment pack specifically designed for the medical field, to reduce swelling and relieve pain. Thermal-Aid’s researchers worked closely with milling engineers from the largest agribusiness companies in the world to create a line of products, using a unique process, which allows a specialized corn to hold temperatures for long periods of time. This process removes the germ from the kernel, thus removing virtually all the moisture and preventing mold or fungi from forming. The entire process hardens the corn segments, causing an even temperature in each segment, and creating extended temperature retainment (hot and cold). This also extends the life of the corn beyond that of the material it’s sewn into!
Thermal-Aid makes a variety of great products, from a variety of cute animals for kids, to different size sectionals and a tube. They also make a headache relief system, clinically proven to relieve tension and migraine headaches.
I love our Thermal-Aid warmers, and I think they make excellent gifts. I rely on mine every morning, when I struggle to get warm, especially after standing at the bus stop. I use it at night when the house is cold, and it helps me sleep.
