Fun fact: I sleep with an ice pack every night! I have severe chest pain (which I am going for a CT on Friday) and I find sleeping with an ice pack (and sometimes I switch to a hot pack) helps a bit. So when I first heard of Warm Buddy I was intrigued on what they could do for me.
Warm Buddy believes that their rejuvenating natural heat therapy products are the highest quality and longest lasting heat holding wraps around, and that every mother, and family should own one. Warm Buddy has been around since 1995 and have a loyal following of customers.
I was sent a heat wrap to review. A Warm Buddy Body Wrap is created from the softest designer fabrics and contains natural grains & lavender flowers. It has a LONG HEAT HOLDING ability of 1 hour or more, and makes a great cold pack too. Simply heat in the microwave or cool in the freezer as desired. This rejuvenating heat / cool therapy infused with aromatherapy can be used to relieve stress and ease the pain of aching muscles, menstrual cramps, sore backs, shoulders and stomachs. A Body Wrap makes the perfect hot water bottle alternative that does not cool off or leak. Body Wrap’s come with a washable cover. All Warm Buddy rejuvenating heat therapy products are proudly made in Canada.
For the first couple of uses I tossed my Warm Buddy in the freezer all day and took it out right before I went to bed. The first thing I noticed was the scent of lavender, a plus for someone like me who has problems falling asleep. It was so relaxing. Another feature of the Warm Buddy that I loved was the material. It was similar to a “minky” blanket, very luxurious and super soft. I love how big my Warm Buddy is and how it wraps around my body when I lay it on my chest. It spans a much greater distance than my other ice packs, which helps with the pain. Although the Warm Buddy works in the freezer, I found it doesn’t keep cold for long. It wasn’t until yesterday when I first put it in the microwave, and I realized that it was truly made for heat.
Warm Buddy wasn’t lying when they state that their rejuvenating natural heat therapy products are the highest quality and longest lasting heat holding wraps around. My body wrap truly did keep the heat. I couldn’t tell you how long it stayed warm last night since I actually fell asleep! At lunchtime today my chest was bothering me so I tossed my Warm Buddy back in the microwave and it was warm for a good hour, at least (again this is an estimation since I actually didn’t time it). I LOVE MY WARM BUDDY and am officially sold on their products.
