How to: sustainable & stress free periods

How to: sustainable & stress free periods

Oh my flo adaptogenic wellness tea

Periods can be painful, messy and a nuisance.

But did you also know that on average a woman spends over £18,000 on period products during her lifetime? Each period can cost up to £41.

Women use more than 11,000 disposable menstrual products in their lifetime and 200,000 tonnes of waste are generated by period products every year.

Most menstrual pads are made from 90% plastic and did you know that many tampons are also partly made from plastic? These take thousands of years to decompose into microplastic particles that kill millions of animals every year. There are as many as 51 trillion microplastic particles - 500 times more than the stars in our galaxy!

But there are ways to make your period cheaper, more sustainable and less painful.

Have you thought about trying period pants or menstrual cups but not sure where to start?

Have you wanted to try CBD or try other herbal remedies to ease cramps and anxiety?

Don't worry! We've got you! 

Cocoro Period Pants

Cocoro are here to prove that period pants can make you feel empowered and beautiful. 

They have created a range of colourful designs, all made from super soft cotton, with a technical super absorbent layer hidden inside to keep you dry and comfortable.

Cocoro have also created two levels of absorbency. All of their period pants can be worn alone during your period, without any other sanitary products, but for those days when you want extra protection or have a particularly heavy flow they have designed their PLUS range to give you that extra peace of mind.

Menstrual cups are another brilliant alternative to tampons and sanitary pads.
Once inserted you can wear your menstrual cup for up to 12 hours.

Sensual Intim have also created their patented design which allows you to empty your menstrual cup without removing it! 

Comfortable and safe: it is perfect for sleeping, bathing, traveling, doing sports, etc. and gives your the peace of mind that you won't have to take it out and reinsert when out on the go.

Our Remedy CBD

Our Remedy CBD

CBD is a cannabinoid. This means that it is extracted from cannabis but it doesn't contain the cannabinoid THC which makes you high.

CBD has been recommended by many for its ability to reduce anxiety, stress, promote better sleep and reduce pain. 

What's even better, is that Our Remedy CBD is mixed with essential oils to give you their added benefits and mask the earthy taste of CBD.

There are two flavours available: Moon Swings & Pretty Peaceful.
