It’s safe to say that kids love Warmies. However, did you know that they can be used by (and are loved by) adults, too? Read on to find out how they can make your life better.
1. Reduced Anxiety
All of our Warmies products contain real dried French lavender. Lavender is known to provide a variety of health and wellness benefits, including a reduction in anxiety.
Lavender reduces anxiety in several ways:
Decreased Blood Pressure
When you breathe in the scent of lavender, you activate the parasympathetic nervous system, which brings the body into a "rest and digest' state. One characteristic of the rest and digest state is a decrease in vital signs
, specifically the heart rate and blood pressure. Research shows that these vital signs can go down when a person inhales the scent of lavender.
Less Anticipatory Anxiety
Lavender can minimize anticipatory anxiety, too. If you find yourself feeling anxious or stressed out before a big event, try breathing in the scent of lavender. Because Warmies contain real dried French lavender, it’s easy and convenient to breathe in the scent whenever you need to calm down.
2. Improved Sleep
Warmies don’t just reduce anxiety.
They can also improve your sleep quality and quantity in the following ways:
The sleep improving effects of Warmies have to do, in part, with their lavender scent. Lavender can improve your sleep quality because of its calming effects. It’s hard to fall asleep (and stay asleep) when your blood pressure and heart rate are elevated.
Warmies, as their name suggests, also provide warmth and comfort. Warm them in the microwave then lie down with them for the ultimate comfort. There’s nothing like snuggling up with something warm & cuddly to soothe yourself to sleep.
Warmies are also perfectly weighted. They provide a bit of gentle compression, which can reduce anxiety and soothe you to sleep. Similar to a weighted blanket, the compression from a weighted stuffed animal is like a nice hug. It lowers blood pressure and heart rate so you can drift off to sleep peacefully.
3. Reduced Muscle and Joint Aches
Do you ever struggle with a stiff neck or an aching lower back after a long day at work? If so, Warmies can provide you with some much-needed relief.
The heat from Warmies products does a great job of soothing and relaxing sore, tight muscles, especially those that contribute to neck pain or back pain. It can also provide relief from pain caused by old injury flare-ups and stiffness related to chronic conditions like arthritis or fibromyalgia.
Warmies (as well as other heated products) are effective pain-relievers because their heat opens up the blood vessels. This, in turn, can speed up the healing process and deliver blood, oxygen, and nutrients to your muscles at a faster rate.
4. Reduced Stomach Pain and Bloating
Lying down with a Warmie or heating pad can also help when you’re struggling with an upset stomach or bloating. The heat and weight from Warmies products may reduce or relieve stomach cramps. It can provide a useful distraction from any discomfort you might be experiencing as well.
If you’re feeling bloated, the muscle relaxation that the heat provides can be effective, too. It can improve digestion and provide some extra comfort.
5. Fewer Headaches
Did you know that the heat and lavender scent from Warmies can also reduce headache frequency and severity? There are a few ways that you can use Warmies for headache relief, including these:
If you struggle with tension headaches on a regular basis, placing a heated wrap on your neck or shoulders can relieve the stiffness that contributes to your headaches.
Heat can reduce sinus headaches, too. If you’re dealing with a cold or sinus infection and have a lot of pressure building up, a heated eye mask can be very soothing. The heat reduces inflammation and offers a lot of relief.
Do you often get headaches at night? Muscle tension might reach its peak in the evenings, which may lead to nighttime headaches. Cluster headaches often appear at night, too. Nighttime headaches can make it hard for you to get enough rest. Luckily, the lavender and pain-reducing properties of Warmies can help you to relax and fall asleep more easily.
As an added bonus, the scent of lavender can combat migraines. There are some early studies showing that lavender can reduce migraine pain or eliminate it altogether. One study, for example, followed participants for three months and found that those who used lavender therapy consistently saw a reduction in migraine frequency and severity.
6. Reduced Period Pain
If you experience miserable menstrual cramps every month, you likely know how great heat can be for soothing your pain. In fact, heat has been shown to be one of the most effective tools for relieving period cramps.
Warmies are an excellent tool for reducing period pain and making that time of the month much more tolerable. The heat from Warmies products can be a better pain-reliever than NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory) medications and aspirin.
If you struggle with headaches or bloating during your period, Warmies can help with those symptoms, too. They provide an all-encompassing solution for a whole range of period problems!
