Herbal Hugs Mission Statement

What's a Hug?

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 favorite. Complete directions for proper use and care of your Hug are inside the package.

I was sent the Body Pack & Eye Bags both Unscented. I chose unscented because of my sensitivity to scents & the unpredictabilty of what will set off my head into a migraine. I love the smell of the all natural which is very subtle & very natural smelling.

The eye bag was very relaxing & soothing when I started getting pains in my head. I don't get the typical migraines but I get what I call the "MS Migraines" which I believe are in a league of their own. I can tell the difference between a typical migraine & MS pains. This is the first thing that actually gave me some relief from the pressure cooker going on in my head. My mom also gets migraines & I am going to let her borrow it to see if she can get some relief.

The next product I reviewed was the Unscented Body Pack which I used on my knee. My knee hurts so bad it will wake me up at night in massive pain. Some days it hurts so bad I have a hard time getting up my stairs. This little Hug provided major relief & it felt sooooo good on my knee. I popped it in the microwave & then put it on my knee. It stayed warm for a very long time (I fell asleep after about 10 minutes).

One lucky person will win the Eye Bag & Body Pack in the Rose & Chamomile scent. Thank you sooo much Nancy for being sooo kind & wonderful :)
