Thermal-Aid Reveiw and Giveaway

I live in a household full of people that get hurt regularly. Whether it is a pulled muscle in my husbands back or a boo boo on my four-year-olds knee, we always are looking for a way to relieve some pain or tension.

I had an opportunity to try Thermal-Aid natural heating and cooling packs recently. Thermal-Aid heating and cooling packs are made from all natural ingredients. The outer cover is made with all natural cotton and the interior contents are a specially engineered corn.

I immediately thought that I would need to test out the medium sectional heating pack on my shoulder. Unfortunately, the monkey was used first. My youngest was not feeling was not feeling well and was moping on the couch. I tried everything to try and get him to tell me what was wrong. But the only thing I got was this photo...

Look at that pitiful face!! The little light bulb in my head kicked on then. Grab the monkey!! I ran in the other room and pulled the Thermal-Aid monkey out of its box. I ran to the microwave and warmed him up for about 45 seconds. I tucked the monkey next to Kaiden since he was cranky and would not take it.

And here they are a couple of minutes later!

I am still not sure why Kaiden was not feeling well, but the Thermal-Aid was the perfect cure. It was warm to the touch and definitely not too hot to hand to a young child. I loved that it only took a few seconds in the microwave.

Now it is my turn! Finally, I get to use my Thermal-Aid. I took my medium sized sectional and tossed it in the freezer overnight. I knew that I would be using it on my shoulder that I dislocated a few years ago that is always flaring up.

I pulled out my Thermal-Aid and placed it over my shoulder for about 15 minutes. I was very impressed with the way that the corn inside held the coolness from the freezer. It remained cool the whole time that I used it and was not too cold on my skin like and ice pack can be.

I can think of many ways that I would use a Thermal-Aid.  They would be amazing during hot weather to help cool me off, or for that more than occasional sprained ankle that I get. I also think that this is a great way to soothe a child with a mild fever or even that occasional night they just can't get to sleep.

I was very happy with both of the Thermal-Aid products that I received. The using the cooled version provide me some relief of my chronic inflammation in my shoulder and the monkey provided a nice warm comfy friend to my four-year-old.  Knowing that all of the contents are natural and non-toxic is an added bonus with Thermal-Aid.
