Art by Lucy Campbell The Moon today is in a New Moon phase. Our health is undeniably linked to the cyclical movement of the seasons, and moon phases perhaps in ways we don't even think about. The moon cycles also exert an influence over our health and are particularly linked our menstrual cycles. Each phase of the moon, oversees a corresponding phase in the menstrual cycle. Most women think that the menstrual cycle lasts however long enough it takes to bleed each month but the truth of the matter is the menstrual cycle has 4 phases. PHASE 1: (MENSTRUATION): New Moon PHASE 2: Pre ovulation (Folicular), 1st Quarter PHASE 3: Ovulation, Full Moon PHASE 4: Pre-Menstruation (Luteal) 3rd Quarter A healthy menstrual cycle of roughly 28 days has 4 phases - just as the moon cycles for 28 days and has 4 phases. Traditionally, women menstruated on the new moon. They rested together as a health practice because rest is what is required as the body is undergoing this powerful, transformative phase. How much rest are you taking during your period? Yes, we live non-traditional lives so, while we can’t be expected to take a week off work each month, we can find ways to slow down. It can be the simple, conscious act of taking quiet time alone to simply rest, meditate, pray, take a bubble bath, get a massage, listen to our bodies and how it wants to move, or to be ...

@loalight here taking over Adam's feed to talk about PMS! According to Adam: "Larimar is associated with the tides of the oceans and our ability to connect to these cycles. It also releases tension with its cooling energy. This makes it the perfect crystal for premenstrual syndrome (PMS)." I'd like to add that Larimar's status as a tool for healthy communication is also of benefit in the relief of PMS. When we honour the ebb and flow of our energy during the menstrual cycle, like the ebb and flow of the tide, we realise that working with the flow gives us ease while still promoting productivity. Like launching a boat against the tide, activities that focus our energy outside that which we feel innately drawn to is twice the work for half the reward!During our menses our energy focus is internal, intuitive and passive and the sometimes frenetic energy of the Pre-menstrual phase lets us get ahead with tasks and negotiate for that upcoming rest time. How often have we blown up at our loved-ones during PMS week because we feel overwhelmed and pressured to continue on at a solid, non-cycling energy level? This inclination can be re-framed into an opportunity for gently communicating our imminent need for rest. Larimar, with it's calming blue may cool hot tempers, and worn around the throat can help facilitate open, loving communication of our needs. Ultimately, understanding our own cyclic nature and the different energetic needs we have during each phase of ...

New Yoni Steam Blend Available ↖↖↖ Sometimes we need more than visualisations, meditations and the full moon. Something practical to join forces In this Yoni Steam herbs there are: Lavender Mugwort Nettle Leaf Rose Petals Raspberry Leaf Chamomile Red Clover So why Yoni Steam? It's a beautiful opportunity to connect the divine feminine with these amazing healing plant medicines. The steam enters the vaginally tissues and allows the woman to physically, emotionally and spiritually release that which is old, stagnant and no longer serving her. I've found this practice to be excellent at propelling creativity and for honouring the woman in her cycle. There are many bits of kit you could take your steam with such as yoni thrones and special stools. The most simplest method I've found is to place your herbs and hot water in a big enough bowl, placed inside the toilet where there is a natural height between you and the bowl. Take between 20 to 30 minutes, (you may wish to place a covering over your knees to keep as much steam in) and simply RELAX. You may meditate and visualise if you desire but it is your INTENTION which serves you best. #vaginalsteam#vaginalsteaming#vaginalsteambath#bajos#bajosherbs#yonisteam#yonisteambath#yonisteaming#vagsteam#yoniherbs#yoni#yonicare#sacredwoman#divinefeminine#moonlodge
