The adorable stuffed animals at Country Herb make it the perfect shop to find presents for children. Pick one up and smell it, and you’ll find that it’s not your ordinary plush toy. The stuffed animals have pockets for therapeutic herbal packs that can be used hot or cold. Pop it in the microwave and have a heat pack that stays warm for 45 minutes, or put in the freezer for a cool pack. The scents of lavender and chamomile will soothe and relax your child in the form of their favorite toy after a long winter days.
Adults can enjoy that magic too, minus the cuddling. For adults, Country Herb offers herbal shoulder packs that blend 12 all natural herbs, including chamomile, peppermint, valerian root, clove, flax seed, white willow, lemongrass, spearmint, lavender, cinnamon, rice and yarrow. Aside from instantly relaxing tension in your body, these therapeutic packs also relieve headaches, stress, arthritis, and assist sleeping. Just inhaling the herbal scents in the shop left me in a calmer state and eased my stress. I’m going to definitely need one for the office.
But just in case the herbal thing isn’t for you, the shop has a great selection of cozy animal slippers, perfect for any age (the monkey pair is my favorite), and cute microfiber cleaners for your electronics.
