Ladies, have you ever tried “The Diva Cup?”
I was all like…..eeeewww gross!!!…for the longest time.
And then I learned about the nasty chemicals that go into tampons.
WTF?!?! Why would I want to put chemicals in my delicate, precious places? 🌷🙀🙈 And then I learned it can take a tampon 400 HUNDRED years to decompose!
WTF? Really?!?! And then I started to ask myself….how much do I really care about the environment? Is it only when its convenient?
The first couple times I used the cup, I freaked out… I thought it got lost inside. (Insert image of me on my back, legs spread with Jacob doing his own search! Horrible and hilarious simultaneously!)
After practice, I learned that you can simply push it out. Just use the muscles you would clench to push out a big poop. Bear down, girlfriend!
And ta-da! Out it comes!
Simply dump blood down the toilet, rinse it out and re-insert. Done. Simple. No tampons to buy monthly. Saves you money and Mama Earth.
I invested in 5 pairs of period panties off Amazon, too. Its been over a year since I’ve spent a penny on my period. (Score!)
That’s a win-win, I’d say!
Now, if you want to take it 1 step farther…
There’s “blood magic!”
I keep a watering can half filled next to the toilet during my period. Instead of dumping my blood down the toilet, I add it to my watering can. I then nourish all my plants.
Your menstrual blood has the highest percentage of stem cells naturally found on this planet….w crazy-healing properties!
Some people give themselves a facial w it….but I don’t go that far. Right now, it’s crazy enough knowing the chard I put in my shakes was fed my blood. I’ll stick to watering my plants for now.
Good luck! If you decide to give any of this a try, let me know if you have any questions!
