Scented Stuffed Toys Soothe and Comfort Children and Adults

Updated on November 24, 2013

Give a Scented Plush Toy to Comfort a Child or Adult

Cozy Plush Microwavable Toys or Aromatherapy Plush Toys are a 2-for-one gift that not only gives a toy, but it also is a warm anytime hug.

These scented plush toys make ideal gifts for children and adults, anyone who needs comfort after a hard day, a bit of relaxation after a stressful day at work or a way to warm up on cold nights. These aromatherapy plush toys contain different scents that can reduce stress and help in relaxing. Heating up the scented microwavable toys is an easy way to get a fragrant hug on a cold night.

There are several different companies that make Aromatherapy Stuffed Toys. Many of the toys contain lavender a scent known to help reduce stress, elevate moods and aid relaxation.

The Sonoma Lavender company also has products in chocolate, holiday scents and eucalyptus scents. Some of the Aroma Home and Cozy Plush products combine chamomile with the lavender.

Heating the toys are easy. Some of the toys the entire animal can be put in the microwave for 30 seconds. With others, there is a removable microwavable insert that gets heated up. Both styles are able to provide hours of soothing, comforting warmth.

Read on to discover more about these unique comforting scented plush toys. You might even decide to get one for yourself.

Note: Because of safety concerns and choking hazards many of these scented toys are *not* recommended for children under the age of 3.

Cuddle up with a Soothing Scented Toy

These products are a great way of combining aromatherapy with hug therapy to create a comforting gift that is suitable for a child, an adult and anyone in between.

These soothing scented microwavable toys are also excellent gifts for those grieving a loss or feeling blue, whether a child or an adult.

One reviewer of the Sonoma Lavender plush toy found the stuffed animal was very comforting and soothing for her following the death of a pet.

She noted in her blog "I may look rather silly cuddling a stuffed animal at my age, but it is curiously comforting." I think cuddling a stuffed animal is a helpful way for children and adults to cope with loss.

These aromatherapy plush toys are going to be on my list of gifts to give to children who are having difficulties coping with a loss as well as adults who may need help relaxing.

      What a great idea! I have made rice bag teddies in the past but didn't scent them. My kids loved having the warmth of the rice bag teddy to cuddle up to, and I didn't have to worry about it getting too cold, because it won't go below body temperature. These are far cuter! *SquidAngel Blessing*

      Such a great idea, but I don't have a micro-wave. They work anyway, but it tempts me to get a little one.
