I’ve got an obsession with having perfect periods. I know you might think this sounds a) impossible and b) not something many people care to put energy into considering it’s only a couple days out of your month. So wrong! Ever since I got my first period, I’ve never skipped a beat and it's always been something I enjoy chatting about openly with friends. I’ve had ample time to figure out what I like and don’t like, what I can control and what I can’t control in order for the experience to be as pleasant as one might hope. Ok and maybe love talking about topics that scare other people off so if you’re still here, you’re a real one.
When I say I am the period queen, I mean it. I know every trick, every hack, every product. Yes, even menstrual cups! We’ll get there but if you’re only here for that, I have an entire IGTV about my experience with the saalt soft. You can watch it here.
This blog post rounds up my favourite period care items from each category. You name it, I’ve got it. I’m also always on the look out for new things so if you think I missed anything I need to try, leave a comment below and I'll be glad to look into it.
Direct heat is my #1 saviour when it comes to period cramps. It's easy, quick, natural and effective for pain relief which is why it's the first thing I reach for as soon as my period begins. The only drawback is that it's not the MOST convenient if you have a busy day and have to be out of the house... but we don't have to worry about that for awhile. Sorry, I had to.
Speaking of being on the move, this heating pad actually comes with a super convenient dust bag that I use to store it when I'm not using it but would make the pillow easy to pack if you were travelling.
A menstrual cup could mean the difference between life and death for girls trying to get an education. In some places, no period care = no education, no job, no money. You can shop their entire selection here + learn more about their global mission as well.
Here's my IGTV link with all of the deets, one more time for the people in the back.
