Microwave Hot bottles
What could be better than cosying up with a hot bottle on a cold night – or when you need a bit of tlc? Zhu Zhu’s classic hot bottles are fun, affordable and help you soothe stresses and strains the natural way
Why use a hot bottle?
Think of it as the next generation hot-water bottle. Like its predecessor, the hot bottle is designed to deliver warmth which, as well as providing a portable heat source, helps to relieve pain or relax tension.
Instead of being filled with scalding water, though, the hot bottle actually contains small grains of wheat that store heat when microwaved and release it again over a sustained period to soothe skin, muscles and joints. Our bottles come in lots of different shapes and sizes, complete with colourful covers in wool, fleece, plush and silk.
How does it help ease muscle and joint pain?
The gentle heat not only warms chill feet, but provides therapeutic benefits when applied to aching limbs. It’s also simpler and safer than a traditional water-filled bottle.
There are proven benefit to heat therapy which can help to alleviate the painful symptoms of chronic and acute conditions such as rheumatism, arthritis, migraines, bruising, sports injuries, menstrual cramps, stress and tension. The locally applied heat increases blood flow to the area, reducing pain and inflammation and promoting healing. Read more about the benefits of heat therapy here.
Our hot bottles are versatile enough to be applied directly to any painful area - just heat briefly in the microwave first. The bottles can be reheated lots of times for hundreds of hours of use.
Why not treat a friend?
Our hot bottles make great gifts for deserving friends. We always have a tempting selection in stock, some with super-soft fluffy covers, others with glamorous silk and a few delightfully quirky animal hotties. What’s your favourite?
