Silk Pillow Case
Silk pillowcases are known for being kind to both hair and skin. Silk's smooth surface creates less friction for fragile hair strands which may have been damaged by chemotherapy and so helps to prevent breakage. Chemotherapy can cause hot flushes at night, so the naturally cool surface of silk will also help regulate temperature to aid a restful night's sleep. Made from the highest quality 19 momme mulberry silk on the front with super soft satin on the reverse. Beautifully packaged and presented in a gift box, this silk pillowcase would make a wonderful gift for your loved one.
Manta Hair Brush
The patented FLEXGUARD technology means each bristle has complete 360 motion to gently frees knots. This continuous motion means your hair never reaches the stress point where fragile chemo hair can break. The Manta hugs the contours of the head massaging the scalp to encourage hair growth, detangling quickly and effectively. Use on wet or dry hair with an easy to use non-slip grip. Manta is made with a soft touch rubber compound that means there are no rough edges or joins to catch, tear or trap your fragile chemo hair.
Bamboo Sleep Beanie
This Bamboo Sleep Beanie is particularly useful for hair loss caused by chemotherapy treatment. Bamboo has many wonderful properties; it is antibacterial as bacteria does not live well in this fabric. It is anti-static so it sits well next to your skin, not clinging uncomfortably to your head. It offers UV protection by cutting out 98% of harmful UV rays so perfect when worn on your head during the summer months but is equally warm in winter. Bamboo is ideal for sensitive skin so perfect if your scalp becomes sore, dry and itchy during chemotherapy treatment. It is also anti-fungal. Extremely soft and light to ensure maximum comfort. Suitable for either bedtime or daytime usage. One size fits all. Machine washable. Material: 95% Bamboo, 5% Spandex.
Microwaveable Body Wrap
These soothing body wraps can be heated in a microwave and used to help relieve some of the discomfort from aching muscles and joint pain that chemotherapy treatment can cause. They can also provide comforting warmth or alternatively, they can be chilled and used as a cooling compress. The cover is made from 100% pure cotton which is gentle on the skin and filled with flaxseed fragranced with lavender essential oil.
Hydration Drinks Bottle
It's so important that your loved one stays hydrated during chemo and a great way to prompt them is to give them their own Chemotherapy water bottle. These fruit diffuser bottles have a section in which you can place fresh fruit to give the water a gentle fruity taste which can help if your loved one is experiencing 'chemo mouth' - that nasty metallic taste. The diffuser is removable to make cleaning super easy and means the bottle can also be used without the fruit attachment. Bottles are BPA free, measure approximately 30cm tall and have a lift up handle for carrying. 750ml bottle.
These super cute, fluffy socks come packaged to look like a Cupcake and will keep your loved one's feet cosy and warm during and after treatment. 98% polyester fibre, 2% spandex.
Queasy Drops have been developed by healthcare professionals. They contain powerful essential oils proven to relieve nausea which can be an unfortunate side effect of chemotherapy. They are completely natural, drug free and 100% safe. Queasy Drops are also a natural way to alleviate a dry mouth and strange tastes in the mouth. They can be a great way to manage nausea and queasiness during chemotherapy treatment.
Udderly Smooth Extra Care Cream with 10% Urea
Udderly Smooth Extra Care Cream is often recommended by healthcare professionals for oncology skin care. It's a non-greasy, deeply moisturising cream which helps to prevent peeling and cracking of the skin, particularly during chemotherapy treatment. Udderly Smooth Extra Care Cream contains 10% urea which is well-known for its hydrating, exfoliating and protecting properties. Fragrance free.
Vanilla Kisses Lip Balm
Sore, chapped lips can be another unwelcome side effect of chemotherapy and you’ll appreciate this gorgeous Vanilla flavoured lip balm from the Little Shop of Lathers. It’s handmade and contains natural oils, which have been proven to be more effective than petroleum-based balms.
Cuticle Care Balm
This Cuticle Care Balm is a handmade Aromatherapy treatment for softening and treating dry, cracked and sore cuticles and nails. Full of Essential Oils to soften and soothe skin, rejuvenate and calm. To use, apply to nails and cuticle beds, massage and leave to soak in. Use daily until cuticles are in desired condition then weekly to maintain. This Cuticle Care balm is in a 10g pot. Although our products are made from natural ingredients with no added chemicals or preservatives, this product may contain a small quantity of Sweet Almond Oil (just a precautionary note for Nut Allergy sufferers). Ingredients: Lavender Essential, Cocoa Butter, Coconut Oil, Beeswax, Vitamin E Oil, Shea Butter, Sweet Orange Essential Oil, Frankincense Oil, Myrrh Essential Oil.
Anti Nausea Wrist Bands
Anyone who has experienced nausea will know how draining it can be. This is why we have included these anti-nausea wristbands as a natural way to ease some of the negative effects it can have. Research has shown that patients who wore acupressure wristbands reported less chemotherapy-related nausea on the day of treatment compared with those who didn't wear them. The plastic stud attached to the inside of the wrist band exerts pressure and stimulates the P6 (or Nei-Guan) acupressure point. It is widely believed that pressure on this point relieves nausea and vomiting.
Cotton Moisturising Gloves
Some chemotherapy drugs may cause sore, dry hands and feet. These cotton gloves are a must have for dry hands and nails. Helping skin to lock in moisture, these non-absorbent gloves work by warming the skin making creams and lotions soak into every crevice keeping hands supple and hydrated for longer.
Cotton Moisturising Booties
These white, cotton moisturising socks can help lock in moisture to combat the drying effects on skin and nails of chemotherapy treatment. Socks are soft, lightweight and breathable. One size fits most as material is slightly stretchy.
