Period Pains? These Stylish Hot Water Bottles Will Soothe Your Cramps (and Look Cute)

Hibernation mode activated.

Period cramps are the worst, but I’ve found that hot water bottles work like magic in warding them off.

Before the invention of stick-on menstrual relief patches or microwavable heating pads, we relied on these good ol’ bottles to help relieve and soothe our period pain.

But even now, nothing really compares to the comfort of a hot water bottle to bring a sense of comfort – period pains or not.

The problem is that they don’t exactly make for stylish additions to the house. Well, that is, until now.

I know it sounds picky, but as I’ve just moved house, I’ve started being much more considered about my purchases so that I don’t end up with more stuff than I need.

So I really only want a hot water bottle that looks as good as it feels. I’ve been doing a bit of research, and there are a few I’ve got my eye on, including stylish options from Anya Hindmarch, Oliver Bonas and Toast.

How to use hot water bottles for cramps

So now you’ve found a stylish hot water bottle, how do you actually use it?

Simply fill it with boiled water that is safe to use. Don’t put the water in right away after it reaches a boil; let it sit for a bit until it reaches a temperature you’ll be comfortable with. Screw the top on tightly and make sure the bottle is completely dry. Simple!

If your period pains still haven’t disappeared, try having a warm bath or massaging your lower abdomen to help reduce pain.
