Herbal Hugs Review and Giveaway






Hello again neighbors!

This is the first Saturday in a long time that I have been able to get out At the Fence this much. I have another company to share with you, Herbal Hugs. I received a Hot Cold Thermal Body Pack from Herbal Hugs. It is a square polar fleece wrap packed with grain and dried herbs. You can place them in a microwave (follow instructions) or freeze to use either hot or cold, whichever you need. You can also use it at room temperature just for the soothing aroma. The intensity of the fragrance is much stronger when heated in the microwave. The pack is great for aches and pains. The Body Bags are 7" x 8".



From Herbal Hugs:

The polar fleece is a wonderfully soft fabric against the skin while providing excellent thermal retention and a tough resistance to stains and dirt. Polar fleece is a man-made fabric created from recycled plastics and is favoured by athletes and outdoorsman the world over.

  • joint pain
  • backaches
  • cold feet/hands
  • stiff or sore muscles
  • stomach aches
  • PMS aches & pains
  • stress or general malaise
  • colds, flu, chills
  • ear aches
They have neck wraps, eye bags, a gift pack and they carry some herbal oils. My Body bag was Rosemary and Chamomile. Very fragrant! My 13 year old sometimes has trouble getting to sleep, so she has used it for the relaxing effect.






What is in a Hug?
"A Herbal Hug contains a blend of wheatseed, flaxseed and dried herbs. The grain is certified cleaned, however there is a chance that there are small amounts of other seeds in the grain. The fabric we use is satin for the eye bags and polar fleece for the rest of the Hugs."

Special Care Tips:
"To ensure the long life of your Hug, here's a few tips in caring for it:
  • Keep your Hug in a sealed bag between uses to keep the herbs smelling fresh longer;

  • Store your Hug in a dark, cool place between uses;

  • When cooling in the refrigerator or freezer, make sure the Hug is in a sealed plastic bag to avoid picking up food/freezer odours;

  • When you notice the moisture on the outside of the bag decreasing when you heat the Hug, add a small dish of water in the microwave with the Hug to reduce the chance of scorching;

  • Do not wash the Hug, use a damp cloth to surface clean;

  • If you have pets, do not leave the Hug lying around. They like them too and will often steal the Hug to their favourite spot;"
Herbal Hugs is going to send the winner of this giveaway one Body Pack. Herbal Hugs is worth sharing At the Fence.

If I had a choice of any of the four I would choose the lavender filled blue/purple body pack. Just typing that makes me want to relax.

I think one for wrists and hands would be a good idea. Specifically made so that they velcro (or something) to stay in place. For those with carpal tunnel, arthritis, etc.
