Are Your Pads & Tampons Friendly?

· Feminine Care,Reproductive Health,Women's Health

Hey sis,

Are your pads and tampons friendly!?

Listen, how often are you stopping to think about what you're putting in your body when buying your menstrual products like pads or tampons? Is this something you think about at all? Or do you just grab the brand your mom, sister or girlfriend buy?🤔

Did you know that there are many known and unknown chemicals found in conventional pads and tampons that are quite alarming?

Did you know that most tampons and pads are bleached with chlorine to make them white, which leads to a toxic byproduct called dioxin?

Did you know that the chemical dioxin has been linked to cancer, endometriosis and other reproductive irregularities in women?

Did you know that these same chemicals are contributing to women's common menstrual complaints and like pain, heavy bleeding and clotting, irregular cycles, cyst and fibroid growth, unstable hormones, vaginal irritation and dryness...?

According to many studies, the ingredients used in many tampons are linked to serious health problems like...

  • Chronic PMS + Inflammation
  • Endometriosis
  • Painful Irregular Periods
  • Heavy Bleeding & Clotting
  • Hormonal Disruption
  • Infertility
  • Ovarian Cancer
  • Ovarian Cyst
  • Vaginal Dryness
  • Yeast & Bacteria Outbreaks

You see when you are not mindful, you introduce harmful chemicals to your reproductive region.

The solution...

Buy 100% organic cotton, and STEAM monthly! They don't contain polyester, fibers, dyes, artificial fragrances and other synthetic hormones or ingredients found in conventional sanitary products. You can find healthier options in stores like Target, Publix, Walmart, CVS, and Walgreens. Or you can shop online! Try brands like,

  • Seventh Generation
  • Natracare
  • Honey Pot
  • L. Organic
  • Rael
  • Lola
  • Cora
  • Veeda

And if you don't transition to organic menstrual products immediately, be proactive and take action by steaming. This is 1 of many reasons why all women should adopt the practice of steaming for feminine self care!

Steaming is by far one of the best practices you can ever adopt for self-care and womb health.🙌🏽

Go ahead and gently cleanse, detox and pamper your girl from the chemicals she's introduced to monthly via your pads and tampons. You owe this to yourself and your health, stop playing and procrastinating.

Go be awesome and purchase your steaming herbs here 👈🏽!
