Create your own heat/chill packs

These silica gel beads are formulated for heat/chill packs and not for dehumidification.

They have a unique structure which allows them to heat quickly but release the warmth slowly over an extended period of time. Heat is absorbed evenly & the stored energy radiates to deliver passive & relaxing heat to help ease aches & pains. The beads can also be chilled in a freezer to create chill packs.

Commercial heat packs containing silica gel beads are commonly marketed as silicone or silicon beads.
