Happy Wednesday lovelies!
As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, I was diagnosed with uterine fibroids in 2013 and had a painful reminder of their presence again in 2017. Since that time I’ve learned so much about hormonal imbalance, the importance of a plant-based diet, and the environmental and emotional stressors that affect the womb. I was shocked to learn the connection between various vaginal issues and the toxic chemicals found in feminine care products. My first period began at age 10, so I can only imagine the harm I’ve caused unintentionally by purchasing bleached and scented sanitary napkins.
But that’s not where the story ends! A friend of mine introduced me to The Honey Pot Company – a plant-based cruelty-free feminine care line with products free of parabens, sulfates and fragrance. The Honey Pot Company carries regular, everyday and overnight herbal pads, and non-toxic feminine wash, wipes and liners. The packaging is cute and playful, and color coordinated based on normal, sensitive and mommy-to-be products.
The product slogan, “Made by humans with vaginas for humans with vaginas,” is very inclusive.
I love the product slogan, because it captures the people with vaginas who do not identify as female. Language is important. I’m a copywriter, so I have an unapologetic bias when it comes to the importance of choosing words wisely!
I purchased the Normal Wash and the Regular Herbal Pack with Wings. The price point was pretty much identical to the Kotex brand that I’ve used for decades, which made the switch that much easier. I will update this post once I’ve had an opportunity to give these products a spin, but for now I wanted to share this brand with those of you who haven’t heard about them.
I am also venturing into the world of vaginal steaming, and learning more about yoni eggs and vaginal detox pearls. I will share more information along the way. Be sure to subscribe to my posts via email and follow me on Instagram for more of my green beauty finds and holistic living tips!
