Are Warm Buddy products safe?
Warm Buddy heat packs have been manufactured in Canada since 1996. They have undergone extensive testing with no adverse reactions or reports of any problems to date. Warm Buddy neck wraps and spa wraps are safer, easier to use and conform to the body, unlike hot water bottles. They provide a penetrating, soothing, moist heat which is enhanced by the addition of aromatherapy. Use the neck wrap over and over. Under daily use these products can last for many years.
Which oils do I use?
A wide variety of essential oils are available. Choose your favorite scent for an amazing aromatic experience. Lavender is commonly used to provide comfort from stress and headaches. Eucalyptus is best for colds. The Anti-Stress formula is great for soothing the symptoms of stress and headaches. Our Serenity blend is a very popular scent, and is used in the Aromatherapy Eye Pillow.
How do I use Aromatherapy?
Add a few drops of essential oil to the inner pack after heating. If the product is used for treatment on the eyes, then the oils should be placed in the corner of the pack – to avoid contact with the eyes.
How do I cool a Warm Buddy?
Place the spa wrap/inner bag in a plastic bag and put in the freezer for 1 – 4 hours, depending on the size of the product and the desired temperature. The plastic bag will preserve the aromatherapy effect.
My Warm Buddy is damp after I heat it?
Because the inner heat packs contain natural grains they release moisture when heated. This moisture will be pronounced upon the first few heatings. If the dampness is bothersome heat the inner pack separately for the first 5 heatings.
How do I heat a Warm Buddy?
Place the heat wrap in a microwave for the prescribed time (heating instructions come attached to every Warm Buddy product). Heating times will vary with the power of the microwave. Products are to be heated on HIGH. The spa wraps should reach room temperature before re-heating. For use in an oven, wrap the pack in aluminum foil and heat approximately 30 minutes at 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
Are all grain packs the same?
Many of the heat packs on the market today are either ineffective or unsafe. Warm Buddy products combine aromatherapy with moist, long lasting heat which make them a superior heat pack. Warm Buddy has created a wide range of products to assist in comforting a variety of symptoms.
