Happy Feet Foot Patches (Box of 5 Pairs = $20, 1 PAIR = $5) 

Foot patches are usually stuck to the soles of the feet and worn overnight. They work like a poultice, warming up to allow the natural ingredients to draw out and absorb the undesired toxins from the body. Ancient Eastern medicine believes that toxins go downwards in the body and accumulate in the feet due to gravity. Benefits include a better sleep, reduced fatigue and a feeling of enhanced wellbeing. 

 

Happy Ears Cone Ear Candles (1 pair $12

The warm rising air creates a vacuum at the base of the candle that helps draw out waste deposits and moisture from the ear canal.
