While the Monthly Blend for Women can help alleviate various discomforts experienced throughout your monthly cycle, it’s worth looking into what each week, or phase, entails; along with specific oils that can help support you during the various parts of your cycle.
The more you know about what and why your body is doing and feeling the way it does, the better prepared you’ll be to figure out which oils and actions will best support you.
Most people choose the FIRST DAY of their period as the mark of the beginning of a new cycle. Also called the menstrual or bleeding phase, this is the messy, inconvenient week that most of us wish we could avoid. It lasts from two to seven days and varies in heaviness of flow from person-to-person as well as day to day.
The estrogen and testosterone hormones in your body are at their lowest levels during this point in your cycle, which is what signals your uterus to shed its lining, otherwise known as your period.
HOW YOU MIGHT FEEL
Everybody is different, but during the week of your period, you might feel tired and have a very low level of energy. In addition, many women have to deal with abdominal cramps, nausea, headaches, and feelings of bloating and tenderness in their breasts and/or abdomen.
