Karen McKee developed the first Warm Buddy™ heat wrap in 1995. These heat wraps surpassed what was on the market with improved heat holding capabilities, the addition of herbs and essential oils and unique designs and shapes. Originally, Warm Buddy products were aimed at the medical market and were widely used by medical practitioners and massage therapists in their treatments. Karen's Warm Buddy product line quickly grew and evolved. The development of our warm-up plush animals, known to many as Warm Buddies, included teddy bears, kittens and puppies. The introduction of elegant designer silks and soft chenille fabrics to Karen's aromatherapy wraps led her straight to the giftware and spa market. Made in Canada.
