  • Therapeutic Gel Beads

    Many patients suffer from pain after surgery and this therapeutic all purpose hand held gel beads pack can help to soothe minor pain and cramping in targeted areas of the body. It has an elastic hand strap for easy application. It can be used either warm or cold to comfort and soothe. Fragranced with lavender, mandarin and geranium to add a sense of calm. Pack size w195mm x h125mm d18mm.


    Antibacterial Hand Gel

    This handwash gel with antimicrobial content is suitable for cleaning and protecting hands when it is not possible to use soap and water and is perfect if your loved one is laid up after surgery. Some hand sanitisers can play havoc with our hands from the drying effect of the alcohol, but we have chosen this hand gel because it contains  ‘Squalane’ derived from a plant source. Squalane is particularly beneficial for soothing dry and inflamed skin conditions such as eczema and is natural, safe, and effective for all skin types. EU registered cosmetic, dermatologically tested. Contains 62% alcohol which guarantees high antimicrobial effectiveness.  Ingredients: Alcohol Denat., Aqua, Squalane, Acrylates/C 10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Amino-methyl Propanol, Parfum, Geraniol, Limonene, Linaloo.

    WARNING: If the product gets into the eyes, rinse with lukewarm water. Flammable. Avoid contact with eyes. Do not use on cut or damaged skin. Do not use in case of known hypersensitivity to any component of the preparation. Keep out of the reach of children. Contains ethyl alcohol.


    Relaxing Sleep Mask

    This relaxing eye mask blocks out light to enhance the quality of your loved one's rest in hospital  or at home following surgery. Pack size w225mm x h120mm, d20mm.


    Peppermint VerMints

    It’s common for patients to feel nauseous shortly after surgery. Post surgery pain can also trigger feelings of sickness. Anti-sickness medicine can help but mint is also well known for easing nausea or an upset stomach. We’ve specifically chosen VerMints because they have ditched all the health-harming, chemically-modified stuff that you usually find in mints and made super tasty mints from nature and nature only. VerMints are USDA Organic, Gluten-Free, non-GMO, Nut-Free and Kosher. 40g tin.


    CupCake Socks 

    (please note these are different to the slippers shown in the box picture. Our new CupCake socks are shown in the individual product images)

    These super cute, fluffy socks come packaged to look like a CupCake and will keep your loved one's tootsies cosy and warm during and after treatment. 98% polyester fibre, 2% spandex. A random colour will be provided but if you want a specific colour please let us know during checkout and we'll do our best to help you out.
