This one is to all my soul sisters out there, to all your beautiful female formations and female powers.
There is no denying that a male and a female have some different needs and bodily features, that is how the universe created us. So instead of fighting against our bodies and the nature of our being we should embrace our bodies and be proud of being born into a female body.
One of the female needs that I personally for a very very long time did not accept is having my period and not being ashamed and annoyed about it. I used contraception pills for almost 9 years, and probably only had my period 20-30 times over the last nine years. Thinking back I´m between laughing and crying at how badly I´ve treated my feminine powers, I´ve neglected a huge part of being fully me, having an authentic & present experience in a female form.
So this is to all my soul sisters out there, please please please allow yourself to be fully present in your body and embrace your period with love, kindness and presence.
Finally I´m clean of any chemical pill and I`m embracing my period fully, which means I now have to use sanitary products every month. This made me realise how much waste we accumulate with using tampons and pads. Not only waste, but products that are tested on animals and also products that have toxins that are absorbed straight into your core essence.
The more I thought about the more repulsed I got, to using pads and tampons. But I was also sceptical to the reusable alternatives. Thankfully I have an amazing soul tribe that I had discussions with, and that inspired me to try out the great alternative to tampons.
It works like magic.
The reusable rubber cup is easy to use, it is easy to clean and is not leaving any toxins in your body and imagine how much less waste we can create.
POSITIVES ABOUT THE MOON CUP
You can leave it in for longer than tampons.
You can sleep with it.
You can boil and reuse it over and over again.
No toxins coming into your body.
Much much less waste.
Cheaper than buying single use tampons and pads.
