The natural switch to healthy products

There’s gotta be a better way. (Spoiler alert: there is.)

One of the most important aspects of taking control of your health is education. Whether you’re 9 or you’re 49 – there is so much going on and vying for our attention. Often times, the most important stuff gets overlooked. Let’s be real – in the midst of to-do lists and schedules and life, it can be hard to justify making time to research healthier choices, much less incorporate that wellness into our routines. We’re here to tell you: this is one of the most important decisions you can make for your wellbeing.

When we start our periods, we often reach for the most convenient product  (and sometimes that means just following along in the footsteps of what our grandmothers, mothers, and sisters have done before us.) But here’s the thing – there’s a better way. Luckily, period products have come a long way since our grandmothers or mothers started their period. And even if that wasn’t the case, what works for them may not work for you. That’s why it’s so important to do a little work to figure out what truly works best for our bodies.

Repeat after us:

Everybody is different.

Every body is different.

Everybody has the right to know what they’re putting in their body, and make the decision that works best for them.


There is power to be found in standing up for your health. There is power to be found in seeking knowledge and educating yourself on your options. And most importantly, there is power in finding the option that works best for you (not your mom or your BFF!) and living an educated, healthy, more natural life. This month, we’ll be focusing on the tweaks, both big and small, that you can make to take control of your menstrual habits, and ultimately, your overall health.

If you’re looking to do a little of this research for yourself, our Healthy Products and Lifestyle  weekly email series is a great place to start. This totally free resource will pop into your inbox each week with fresh tips and tweaks that you can add to your routine for a happier, healthier period. Sound intriguing? Just click the link below, add your email address, and you’ll be on your way!


Follow along as we cover period product options, alternatives to traditional pain medication, nutrition tips, and even exercise routines that will help you on your journey to a more natural lifestyle. You can find it all here on our blog – but be sure to connect with us on social media as well so you don’t miss a beat.

Here’s to a better period,
