This image shows my seven-year-old daughter's more unusual "princess action scenes." The princesses are all sick, my daughter said. I asked her, “How are they sick?” She told me that the princesses weren’t sure what was wrong, but that they all needed a nap. I thought of some of the old books that I like to collect, especially on women’s health. Many of the books published as late as the 1980s specifically designate menstrual pain as an imaginary pain.
The cause of menstrual pain can be divided into three main categories: 1) uterine contraction; 2) and endometrial adhesions 3) inflammation. All three have their roots in hormonal imbalance. Menstrual pain, especially debilitating pain, is not a healthy part of being a woman. It can be resolved.
The majority of forward thinking and cutting-edge treatment of menstrual pain is facilitated by nurses and nurse practitioners and include lifestyle changes for diet. Herbal remedies have long been women’s allies in gently restoring deficiencies and removing excesses. Essential oils that have been used for over a century to reduce menstrual pain and help the body restore homeostasis are found in my Luna blends. Red Tent Luna blend has several of the “blue” oils (so named for their deep blue color) such as German chamomile and yarrow. These oils have chamazulene in them which is anti-spasmodic and deeply calming.
Several of the other oils in this blend such as Clary Sage are known to have a mild effect on balancing hormones. Several of my clients have found complete relief of their mensural pain after as little as three months of using this product. If you have endometriosis you may want to consider using Crimson Moon. You can find these on my website, at Agora, or the SPACOOP.
