Thermal-aid Review & Giveaway

I was given the opportunity to review Thermal-Aid which I absolutely LOVE! I've long been looking for a cooling pad that works for more than like 10 minutes and doesn't feel like an ice cube is sitting on me (we have a few of the rice bags but they don't last too long in my opinion.) We tend to need more cooling pads than heating pads but after a long day and since I've started to exercise more now, I've been using mine for my legs at the end of the day.

Thermal-Aid is 100% Natural. The Heating and Cooling packs are made from 100% cotton and the inside is specially engineered corn. Thermal-aid provides relief for symptoms such as ~ arthritis, back pain, muscle soreness, menstrual cramps, neck pain, carpal tunnel, headaches and migraines, sprains/strains, sunburn, fever, stomach aches, the flu, bug bites, lactation, multiple sclerosis and growing pains.
There are several different heating/cooling pads that are available and range in price from $19.95 for a the Tube or Small up to $36.95 for a Large. The bears are from Thermal-aid kids! With 5 different colors to choose from (Lavender, Blue, Yellow, Green or Pink) they are $19.95 each. Unlike the pads (which are hand wash only), the bears are washable!
We used our bear a few days after we got him. My daughter came home with a fever and likes having something cool on her head. I had put the bear in the freezer the day before because I wanted to see for myself how long he stayed cold compared to the rice bag that we kept in there already. She slept for at least 2 hours after school and she said the bear still felt cooler on her head. I honestly wish that I would have known about Thermal-aid when my daughter was younger. I can think back to so many times (and probably many more to come lol) when she needed a heating/cooling pack and didn't have anything on hand that she "liked" or felt comfortable keeping on. With the bear she loves how he helps her feel better from any bumps and aches and things she has.

One lucky Clair's Freebies fan is going to win the Medium Heating/Cooling Pack AND their own Lavender Bear too!! Wait for the Rafflecopter to load and enter away :)

  2. The Medium Sectional is made from all natural ingredients and is the only green heating and cooling pack that you can clean with soap and water and it won’t form mold or fungi.

    I so take thier warning seriously about those who suffer from nervous system disorders. Heat can cause your system to shut down. That is why MS suffers can die in a warm tub.
