Benefits of a Hot Water Bottle

I thought with Halloween behind us and the holidays approaching it might be time to mention the benefits of the good ole hot water bottle. It’s not very sexy but it can help ease stomach bloat and give you a flatter stomach which is sexy.


I don’t know if hot water bottles will ever become chic or make a fashion statement but they do come in a variety of colors.

Heat from a water bottle brings more energy and blood circulation to the digestive organs. It can help a sick tummy specially after a big splurge, like eating a whole bag of Halloween candy. Hot water bottles provide an inexpensive source of heat. They are safer than electric blankets and are a lot easier on the electric bill than heating pads.

Simply fill with hot water and place on your stomach for about 15-20 minutes. You can also cover it with a pillow case or cover so that the plastic ridges are not directly touching your skin. With repeated use you can:

  • Ease bloating
  • Aid digestion
  • Warm a cold bed and feel cozy
  • Promote restful sleep
  • Relieve the pain of menstrual cramps
Hot water bottles can be found at any pharmacy or drugstore such as Walgreen’s or CVS. Although they are not always visible on store shelves you may have to ask but it will be worth the effort.

  • I like this combination of natural and developed springs and attractions. The journey in between is all so serene. I’ve been to halfway rivers hot springs, and definitely want to do lussier and Ainsworth soon! #Whatfishthinks
