Is anyone else in meltdown from the Summer heat yet? We have been in triple digits with a heat index that is steadily rising .We are literally baking like a roast in an oven bag here! I am talking about the kind of heat where you step outside and it literally takes your breath away. It’s bad! I am starting to think there is something to the earth getting closer to the sun! Whatever it is, there is still grass to be mowed, the garden to tend to, and trees to be cut and chopped for wood for the coming Winter. Ah, yes, Winter! A nice thought on the horizon.
When working out in the heat, we have found a seriously ‘cool’ way to help keep cool! Have you heard of these ‘cool’ Cool Collars from Nano-Ice?
The Cool Collar is worn around your neck like a necklace. The neck is the body part that most regulates body temperature, making it the ideal spot for the Cool Collar to keep you cool! The Cool Collar is different from a freezer pack in that it is long lasting. The liquid frozen inside the spheres that make up the Cool-Collar was specially developed as an efficient refrigeration technology. The way the ice crystals interlock with each other is more efficient than frozen water, packing more thermal energy into a small space. Depending on weather conditions, the Cool Collar will stay cold for up to 2 1/2 to 3 hours. I love that the Cool Collar is made of recycled material and organic substances!
From freezer packs to wet towels around our neck, we have tried a little of all of it to stay cool in the heat. When we heard of the new Cool Collar, we were anxious to try it out. When it arrived, I hurriedly put it in the freezer, so it would be ready for yard work day.
My hubby was the first to try it while mowing the yard and picking up broken limbs – oh gosh the limbs here! We have over 100 trees on our property and every time the wind blows – well you guessed it – tons of limbs on the ground. These have to be picked up before the mowing can take place. With 3 acres to deal with, it’s a chore I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy! He was quick to announce that he loves the Cool Collar, saying it really does help keep him keep cooler while going about the outside chores.
It doesn’t stop there! We love to grill year round, whether it is a 100 degrees or below zero. But, in the Summer it isn’t all that much fun to be out there cooking over a hot grill. The Cool Collar by Nano Ice makes it much more comfortable for summer time grilling!
Beyond being outside in the heat, let’s talk hot flashes! Ladies, I know some of you can sympathize with what I am saying. To wake up in the middle of the night in a full blown hot flash – sweating, wet clothes, wet sheets, etc- EEK! It is awful! Actually, there are nights I would willing crawl in a freezer if I could. Yep! It’s bad. Being able to slip the cold Cool Collar around my neck for instant cooling comfort is absolutely priceless!
Oh, and did I mention the Cool Collar is great for migraines?! I suffer with migraines several times a week. Long story about them, but the point is when I have them – not much helps. However, I have figured out that a dark room and cold on my neck and forehead helps. I am not going to go so far as to say the Cool Collar will stop the migraine, but it does give a bit of relief and comfort. Hey, I will take what I can get – right?

We are loving the Cool Collar! My only problem with the Nano-Ice Cool Collar is that my hubs and I end up arguing over who gets to use it! I guess that means I need another one
