For the past few years, we have been trying to get our electric bill down to a reasonable amount. Every where I find that we can save, we save. Here are a few examples of how we are saving. We have switched out all of our plug-in night lights for solar lights charged outside during the day. We turn our electric hot water heater off at night. We bundle up in warm down covers at night instead of using electric blankets and keeping the heater on all night. And we have stopped using our electric heating pads, and have turned to using the more natural cost-effective hot water bottle.
Now you may think of hot water bottles as like the kind that granny used to use -- those old rubber ones that would just stink and then have to be re-filled with hot water every hour or so, or even leaked! Hot water bottles have really be redefined and made more environmentally friendly! I am talking of the hot water bottles that can warm your body naturally at WarmTradition.com. Warm Tradition offers the most eco-friendly thermoplastic BPA - FREE hot water bottles manufactured under strict conditions in Germany, then they add almost every cozy hot water bottle cover (made in the USA) you can think of, from fleece to velour to flannel and more in all shapes, sizes, colors and textures for men, women, children, babies and even pets!
I just love all three fantastic hot water bottles that I have received from WarmTradition.com. The cozy covers make it unnecessary to wrap a towel around the bottle. My latest is a charcoal turtleneck cable knit covered bottle. It is soft and cozy, and if need be, the knit cover can be taken off and washed in my washing machine to clean. It has warmed the foot of my bed for quite a few nights now. They are so easy to fill with their extra large opening, and these bottles are leak-proof!
There are many uses for a hot water bottle. Here are just a few:
- The heat from the hot water bottle dilates the blood vessels of the muscles. This increases the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the muscles, helping to heal the damaged tissue.
- Heat from the hot water bottle stimulates the sensory receptors of the skin, which means that applying heat to the area of pain will decrease the transmissions of pain signals to the brain and relieve the discomfort.
- Heat from the hot water bottle facilitates stretching the soft tissues, muscles, connective tissue and adhesions. With a hot water bottle, there will be a decrease in the stiffness and an increase in flexibility and comfort.
One of the most common complaints from children is a stomach ache. They can be mild and short live, or they can be chronic. It can be cramping or sharp. Many times it's harmless and passes. A hot water bottle will help a child with a stomach ache become more comfortable. Resting with a hot water bottle will often help the pain to subside. If the child is a baby, put the hot water bottle on your knees and lay the baby on its belly on top of the covered hot water bottle. If the child is older, they should lie on their back with the hot water bottle on their tummy. Using a covered hot water bottle will protect the delicate skin of children
Warm Tradition has an assortment of covered hot water bottles that appeal to children. A hot water bottle with a cute cuddly cover will entice a child to hold it close and not toss it aside.
Stay warm skiing this year and pack along a Warm Tradition hot water bottle with you and your hands and feet will thank you. Your feet will need a good warm up after a long day of skiing. Simply fill your hot water bottle with very hot water and let your feet rest on top of the bottle. You will feel the cold melt away and turn into warm comforting goodness.
The warm comfort of a hot water bottle from Warm Tradition will keep water warm for up to six hours! It does, for I have tested the bottles warmth after six hours, and it was still a bit warm. Go ahead, and fall asleep with one.
