Herbal Hugs Review and Giveaway - Ends March 22, 2010


Natural aroma-thermo-therapy for your
* sore muscles * aches * pains * chills * tension
* stress * headaches * stomach aches * ear aches

 What's a Hug? Based out of Quebec, Canada, Herbal Hugs are a soft, polar fleece wrapped bags filled with grain and dried herbs. Herb Hugs special processing ensures that the scent is infused into the grain for long lasting aromatherapy benefits. The polar fleece is a special fabric that is soft, durable, easy to keep clean, has amazing thermal retention and feels wonderful against your skin.
Place them in the microwave, toss them in the freezer or simply use their comforting and gentle scents as an aromatherapy pillow. Whichever way you choose, it is sure to become a household favourite.  A Herbal Hug contains a blend of wheatseed, flaxseed and dried herbs and the grain is certified cleaned. The fabric they use is satin for the eye bags and polar fleece for the rest of the Hugs.
Herbal Hugs generously  sent us the Gift Set for Review and all I can say is that this is a wonderful package and I can not even name my favorite as they all have such great uses.
What is makes Herbal Hugs work so well? The blend of grains that they use is one that was extensively researched to ensure a long lasting heat with excellent scent retention. The flaxseed is an oil seed which when used by itself can heat up very quickly and get to a temperature where it can burn skin. The wheatseed on the other hand takes longer to heat but people loose patience and will often burn a totally wheat filled bag. When combined in the right proportions, however, the flaxseed heats up fast and transfers that heat to the wheat, ensuring that your bag will have a longer lasting thermal ability over almost all the other bags in the market. As the bag is heated the scent from the herbal content is released and you get a wonderful herbal scent to go with the thermal therapy, something we all know as aromathermotherapy.
A microwave is the best method of heating a Hug, but you can heat them in an oven as well. You just need to pay closer attention to the heating process. I use the Mirowave and this works super well.
In the Herbal Hugs  Gift Set you get all three products: The Neck Wrap, the Body Wrap and the Eye Bag!!
Herbal Hugs are made very well and just the right size to help you relax.  The neck hug feels awesome warm around the neck. With just the right amount of weight evenly distrubuted this really comforts the whole neck area. Its one of those wow moments. And it stays warm so your good to sit and relax for a few moments with these wonderful Hugs. The Body pack another one that I really like, its  great size for the lower back , chest, anywhere really. Herbal hugs knows exactly how much to put in these to make them super to use. The soft fleece is another favorite of mine and it really holds the heat well.
Neck Wraps
 Neck wraps are 5"x28" fleece bags filled with our special blend of grain and herbs. The Wrap is sewn into sections so that the grains remain evenly distributed through the entire length. The soft wrap fits comfortably to the contours of your body. It will remain upright against the back of your neck rather than sliding down to your shoulders the way many of the collar shaped ones do.

As the scent in the Hugs is based solely on herbs, they will eventually fade. You can lengthen the duration of the herbs by taking good care of your Hug as per the Special Care Tips at the top of this page. You can revive the Hug to a degree by adding a few drops of the appropriate Scent 
Kiss and sealing the Hug in a bag for a week or so. Or you can add a drop or two of Scent Kisses each time you use the Hug. Heat/cool the Hug then add a drop or two right on the surface and enjoy. This is a wonderful idea and I was sent Lavender Essential Oil to go along with my gift set. This will make sure my Herbal Hugs alwyas have that wonderful soothing Lavender smell.
