Sometimes I just need a good hug, and this Herbal Hub Microwavable Aromatherapy Wrap gives gooood hug. 🙂
If you live anywhere within 500 miles of a HomeGoods store, I’d start driving there immediately. LOL!
But seriously, next time you go, make a beeline for the bath section, and see if you can find one.
I think they’re regularly $20, but HomeGoods has them marked down to $12.99, and they’re worth every penny (thanks for the awesome rec, Marisol!).
It’s shaped like one of those airplane neck pillows, except that it’s soft like a beanbag and filled with herbs and magic beads (actually, cinnamon, clove and eucalyptus…for aromatherapy!).
You can warm it up in the microwave or chill it in the freezer (if you use it cold, it’s supposed to reduce swelling and ease headaches), and the magic beads retain the heat or cold for about 20 minutes. You can use it on your neck, your shoulders, your back or wherever, and it REALLY helps.
So far I’ve only used it warm, and when you heat it up in the microwave, it releases a soothing herbal scent, ahh…
It’s great for relieving muscle tension after a long day, and um…have I mentioned that I’m 26 weeks pregnant now and that my back aches pretty much from the moment I open my eyes in the morning till the moment I fall asleep at night?
But this thing sure helps, and now I use it every day.
Best dang $13 I’ve spent in a while…
I like to tuck it into the back of my maternity pants (sexy), or sometimes I’ll wear it around my neck to relieve tension in my shoulders.
Super great gifting potential, too. I can’t even imagine life without it anymore.
By the way, the aromatherapy scent is VERY strong. I love it, but you might want to give it a sniff test first in the store to make sure you like it.
And if you can’t find it at HomeGoods, it’s also available online (except that the price is $20…but I think it’s still worth that).
