Your Heart Health Can Take a Hit During Menopause. Here Are 6 Things You Can Do About That

Spread the love

Hot flashes, night sweats, or being drier-than-normal “down there” may not come as a surprise during menopause, but the transition can make itself known in your body in sneakier ways, too. Namely, by affecting your heart health. One million hearts are affected by menopause each year. (Technically, it’s 1 million people, according to the National […]

As a self-proclaimed bath person, I’ve tried all sorts of products to turn my tub into nothing short of a spa. Bath bombs, bubbly soaks, Epsom salts—you name it, I’ve tried (and loved) them all for different reasons: Epsom salts are great for relaxing my achy muscles, while my bath bombs are great for their skin-soothing, aromatherapeutic benefits. But if there’s one product I swear by for stress relief, it’s Flewd.

Let me set the scene for you: I’m getting home after a long day of appointments, running errands, and working. I’m behind on sleep and have been struggling with asthma symptoms (does pollen season ever end!?). I didn’t get as much done as I wanted to during the day, and I’m feeling stressed.

Naturally, I run a bath and grab some bath soaks to help me unwind. This time, it’s a stress care-specific kind by Flewd, a new brand I’ve been meaning to try out. I  pour it in, hop in the warm water, and after a few deep breaths, my body and mind feel much more relaxed and calm. Yup, I feel the effects only moments in—which I can’t say about any other bath products I’ve used.

Key ingredients: Magnesium, vitamins C & D, and omega-3s (vary by bath treatment)

Also available in four other treatments and bundles, depending on your goals: Anxiety Destroying, Insomnia Ending, Sads Smashing, and Rage Squashing


  • Pre-portioned soaks are easy to use
  • Provides mental and physical benefits
  • Natural, biodegradable, cruelty-free and vegan


  • Pricey for every day use

About Flewd’s bath soaks

Unlike other bath products, Flewd is completely dedicated to addressing all forms of stress, whether it presents as trouble sleeping, mood changes, irritability, anxiety, or frustration. Basically, whatever you’re feeling, Flewd has a bath soak made specifically to treat it.

All of its soaks have ingredients crafted to help you cope, such as magnesium (to lower cortisol levels), natural nootropics (to enhance mood), and microminerals (to rebalance the body’s adrenaline and mood). Combined, these ingredients help you unwind and relax—which is exactly what a hot bath should do. Even better, they’re made with only the good stuff, meaning they’re non-toxic, biodegradable, vegan, and cruelty-free.

Here’s the kicker, though: One bag of soaks costs around $9, give or take (and less if you buy multiple). When I saw this, I was shocked. I don’t know about you, but when I hear about new brands and read reviews, I expect them to be well out of my price range. While I’m not sure I can afford to throw in these bath soaks (or any bath product) every time I take a bath—and the directions on the bag say no more than three times a week—they’re a relatively affordable way to treat myself here and there.

My experience with the bath soaks

Most importantly, Flewd’s bath soaks truly deliver for me, offering a delightful experience in several ways.

Right from the start, I found comfort in using them almost immediately. Feeling overwhelmed and irritable, I had questions about how to use the product properly. Thankfully, the instructions on the back of the bag were crystal clear, addressing all my concerns and even those I hadn’t thought of.

For example, pouring the entire bag into the water, as instructed, felt like a lot, but the clarity of the directions reassured me. They also advise using warm water, not too hot, and suggest a minimum soak time of 15 minutes, though longer is just as good—a relief for someone who enjoys a lengthy bath.

They provide just the right amount of fragrance, too, not too much or too little. I’m able to enjoy the candle-esque scent throughout the entire duration of my (fairly long) bath, and the smell isn’t too strong, you know? But if you’d prefer an unscented version, they’ve got those, too.

All in all, Flewd bath soaks have earned my trust. Between the soothing scents and the effective ingredients, taking a Flewd bath has become something I eagerly look forward to, especially on days when I’m feeling anxious and need to calm down before bedtime.
