Beat the Heat with Heat Guard
The Heat Guard Cooling Tie works with the body's natural cooling system to cool you faster longer and keep you cool longer. Wear it around the neck to cool the blood flowing through the arteries. Before wearing, soak the tie in lukewarm water. Crystals in the tie absorb the water and then slowly release it into the fabric. The evaporating water keeps you cool on those hot days digging in the garden. (Note from Aldona: treat your dog to one of these, too. It works great to keep your canine friend nice and cool!)
In lots of stylish options, now available in the shop for $11.99
