Karen McKee, combining her experience as a Registered Nurse and her interest in holistic health, herbal remedies and aromatherapy, pursued studies in India at a natural healing centre. There she learned that heat therapy and herbs could soothe a wide variety of ailments. Once back in her native Canada, McKee discovered a microwavable heat bag that was easy to use and just as soothing.
In 1995, McKee founded Warm Buddy around a revolutionary product: an ergonomically shaped, insulated heat wrap infused with herbs and essential oils. Soon after, Warm Buddy branched out to plush animals with the same properties for use with sick children. Ever since Warm Buddies can be found everywhere from homes to spas to hospitals, spreading warmth and joy wherever they are used.
This microwavable stuffed animals come with a removable inner heat pack that can be warmed in the microwave or cooled in the freezer. This heat pack promotes relaxation and provides natural relief from aches, pains and stress. All Warm Buddy stuffed plush animals have this warm-up feature. Add aromatherapy oils for added enjoyment.
