If you have yet to get a cold this winter, count yourself among the lucky! But, for the rest of us with the sniffles, sneezes, aches and pains, it’s time for a little TLC for our bodies. The Northern Link certainly sells the kinds of products that your customers can use in this time of chilly weather and chicken soup!
When we think of World’s Softest Socks over at The Link, we picture super comfortable knee and crew socks that are fun and colorful and easy to wear and gift. What we’d love to share is our discovery of their entire Sensitive Collection! This specific product line is filled with socks that, “encourage health blood flow and increased circulation.” Upon further research, we found that, according to WebMD: “Compression stockings can keep your legs from getting tired and achy. They can also ease swelling in your feet and ankles as well as help prevent and treat spider and varicose veins.”
With that in mind, we chose our favorites of this collection – the Support Fit Fashion Crew. These socks are 33% cotton, 33% modal, 31% nylon, and 3% spandex for that perfect stretch. The wide welt is designed to stay up without binding. Sold in a variety of cute colors and patterns, in women’s shoe sizes 6-10.
Support Fit Fashion Crew, SKU#W3261, $5.50 per pair and sold in a pack of 3.
Warmies’ Spa Therapy line containing warmable neck wraps, slippers, and more seemed like the natural choice for relief from aches and pains associated with the common cold. But, even better, is the best seller from the January show: the Original Hot-Pak Herbal Heat Pack Assortment that offers “soothing warmth and comfort, is safe, quick, and easy to use, and scented with relaxing lavender!
Taking our suggestion rather seriously, we checked into the benefits of heat therapy. According to Healthline, “Heat therapy works by improving circulation and blood flow to a particular area due to increased temperature. Increasing the temperature of the afflicted area even slightly can soothe discomfort and increase muscle flexibility. Heat therapy can relax and soothe muscles and heal damaged tissue.”
Hot Pak Soft Cord Assortment, SKU# HPSOFTCORDKIT, $72 wholesale for 1 case, 12 pieces, 4 gray, 4 lavender, 4 blue.
Last, our own suggestion for avoiding a cold, or even just relieving a non-sickness related chill, is to hop in the tub! Your bathroom could use a little ambiance, though…Check out Marmalade of London, our new candle line with dreamy fragrances that whisk you away from the winter not-so-wonderland!
The most popular fragrance from the January show was the Pacific Orchid and Sea Salt: the fragrance of Coconut, Orange, Bergamot on a middle of White Flowers, Vanilla, Pacific Orchid with base notes of Amber and Sea Salt. And the most common candle format are the gorgeous glass candle jars, as you see pictured. Warm up your soul with a little soft glow in your bathroom (or store)!
Gift Boxed Glass Candle in Pacific Orchid & Sea Salt, SKU#83-12194, $15 a piece and sold in a box of 4.
