Wildflower Holistic Services is supporting the locals who have been affected by the bushfires in our community through our "Pay it Forward" scheme for our blankets. For many, Comfort Buddy Weighted Blankets assist in allowing for one to feel safe within their body, to get a good night sleep and reduce ones anxiety, symptoms that many are now experiencing as a result of the fires. We are encouraging individuals to purchase a blanket and donate it to those in need.
If you would like to get on board with this initiative and donate a weighted blanket today, at the checkout enter "payitforward" in the promo code. When you need to enter in the shipping enter "Unit 4, 217 Great Southern Road, Bargo, NSW 2574". The purchase will be re-directed back to Wildflowers and we will distribute the blankets to those who have been affected within the Wollondilly and Wingecarribee Councils.
Our Comfort Buddy Weighted Blankets are a great sensory tool providing deep pressure like that of a 'tight hug' which we all need during times of distress. Comfort Buddy Weighted Blankets attempt to increase overall body regulation by providing input to pressure receptors in the tactile system. The deep pressure touch stimulation provided by the weight in our blankets releases endorphins in the brain such as that of serotonin and dopamine. This provides a natural reduction in your stress and anxiety levels, promoting attention and relaxation. Like the name suggests our Comfort Buddy Weighted Blankets are comforting and will soon become your new buddy as the weight in the blankets allow us to remain calm and focused throughout the day and night, regulating our state of mind and promoting a sense of wellbeing. All lap size weighted blankets are handmade with love by the team at Wildflowers.
