Period Self Care: Treating Yo'self During the Crimson Tide

Listen up, ladies (and gentlemen with periods, we see you too!), it's time to talk about taking care of yourself during that time of the month. You know what we're talking about - the menstrual cycle, the monthly visitor, the crimson tide. It's a natural and normal part of life, but it can often leave us feeling like a hot mess. That's why we've got to get our self-care game on point. And since we're all about keeping things real, we're giving you the lowdown on period self care with a sassy twist.

      1. Eat like a boss: The right fuel can make all the difference during your period. We're talking about a balanced diet rich in iron, fiber, and vitamins. Load up on leafy greens, nuts, and seeds, and say goodbye to processed foods, sugar, and caffeine. Your body will thank you.

      2. Work it out, girl: Exercise isn't just good for the soul, it's also a lifesaver during your period. Light to moderate activities like yoga, walking, or cycling can help relieve cramps and bloating. Don't be afraid to break a sweat, you got this!

      3. Sleep like a baby: During your period, your body needs rest to heal and reduce fatigue. Make sure you're getting enough z's, 7 to 9 hours a night, and you'll feel like a brand new person.

      4. Heat it up: Cramps and menstrual pain be gone! Heat therapy is a surefire way to get relief. Grab a hot water bottle, a heating pad, or take a warm bath. You'll be feeling like a boss in no time.

      5. Chill out: Stress can make your period symptoms worse, and that's just no good. Take a deep breath and relax with some stress-reducing activities like meditation, deep breathing, or yoga. You'll be calm, cool, and collected in no time.

      6. Know your body: Keep track of your symptoms and patterns. Use a period tracking app or a journal, and you'll be better prepared for next time. You'll be in control and on top of things.

      7. Use our Monthly Rollerball. This Proprietary Blend of 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oils has been known to reduce the symptoms of monthly hormonal changes. Whether you are having your period or getting hot flashes, this handy roller ball is an easy all natural approach to managing that pesky monthly visitor!
      8. Use our Harmony Essential Oil Blend in a diffuser. It is a grounding oil with a delicious Spruce aroma and will help center you even on your most stressful days! 
      9. Doctor, doctor: If your period symptoms are persistent or severe, don't hesitate to talk to your doctor. They can help determine the cause and recommend treatments. You're in good hands.

In conclusion, taking care of yourself during your period is a must, girlfriend. Incorporating self-care practices like a healthy diet, exercise, and stress-reducing activities will help you sail through the crimson tide with ease. Remember, every body is different, so listen to yours and do what works best for you. Now go treat yo'self, you deserve it!
