Attention: Mommies! Great, great item for holidays, and everyday: The Thermal Aid 100 Percent Natural Heating and Cooling Pack. I had the pleasure of trying out Ollie the koala bear and this is a necessary item for any mommy's first aid kit. Thermal Aid Products consist of specially treated and processed corn products. It involves a unique process of using the purest de-germinated portion of the corn allowing it to hold even temperature for a long period of time.
Thermal Aid is a unique, 100 percent natural heating and cooling pack designed to reduce swelling and relieve pain. You have your choice of seven adorable characters: Baxter the Bunny, Happy Hippo, Tiny Elephant, Ollie Koala, Buckley Bear, Jo Jo Monkey and Bella Bear. We tried the koala and it was a big hit with my kids.
My daughter was under the weather and I immediately pulled Ollie out of the box. Using the product is easy. For heating: place the thermal aid animal on a clean surface in the microwave for 45-60 seconds. For cooling: place the thermal aid animal in the freezer for about five hours. Ollie cooled her warm head while soothing her with his friendly and plush face.
Thermal-Aid uses are almost endless and include: fever, sunburn, flu symptoms, bee stings, sprains, headaches, insomnia, growing pains and sore muscles. A warm Thermal-Aid can soothe earaches and sunburn. A cool Thermal-Aid can help with bug bites. Babies with colic can benefit from a warm Thermal-Aid along their back or abdomen.
Cleaning of the Thermal-Aid product couldn't be simpler. I simply ran Ollie under warm water, added a little gentle soap and scrubbed for a few minutes and let air dry. You may also put these in the washing machine during the spin cycle and run them through the dryer for around 15 minutes.
Ollie has proven himself a worthy member of our family and I foresee his uses as endless. Thank you to Thermal-Aid for this wonderful product and for making a mommy's job a little bit easier.
