Did you know that:

1 - in the environmental aspect, menstruation is a notable big problem. At the end of her reproductive life, a woman may have used more than ten thousand units of sanitary napkins and tampons. They end up thrown into the trash and they are not biodegradable, take on average one hundred years to decompose in nature.

2- Traditional sanitary napkins and tampons contain fragrances, adhesives, chlorine, asbestos, rayon fibers (for absorption), and dioxin (a compound of the chemical chlorine used for dyeing). Dioxin is potentially carcinogenic and is toxic to the reproductive and immune system. Direct contact with these substances is identified as causative or aggravating problems from allergies and candidiasis from cervical cancer and tumors in the uterus.

3 - The blood contact with these substances gives off a terrible smell, and you think that your blood is disgusting and smelly. So I'll tell you a little secret: your menstrual blood is the most pure substance of your body, capable of feeding a life inside of you, or you think a baby would grow up amid a fetid substance? And it has also a very pleasant odor 

Thant´s why i always look for menstrual period solutions, so we can have a menstrual period free of waste. Using healthy products for our body and for our planet.

  In this quest, I discovered the organic sea sponges, which have been a great ally of women for hundreds and even thousands of years.

YES! We can use them as tampons!!!! JUST AMAZING!

  And even more :

Use organic sea sponges allows you to use their washing water to feed plants, menstrual blood is an excellent fertilizer, therefore to throw your sacred blood in the trash, you can feed Nature, which feeds all of us! 

Free yourself from the poison that the industrial push for us throughout our fertile lives.

A little bit about the sea sponges:

The most indicated specie of sea sponge to use as tampons is the fine silk sponge, that is characterized by a high quality and fineness of texture and its long duration of use.

It is very important that the sponges for menstrual use are organic, and that toxic products are not used in their washing. They must be Hand-picked with great care to cut the sponges and preserve their ecosystem.

One time collected, the sponges are washed, released from limestone or organic impurities and lightly bleached with hydrogen peroxide.

Naturally soft, sponges do not cause static electricity and have antifungal properties grace to a significant concentration of iodine.

To use one sea sponge as a tampon is very easy:

Clean your sponge with organic intimate wash and water to disinfect it. Then dip it into a glass of warm water, adding one or two drops of essential oil of Melaleuca, tea tree or Niouli

Squeeze the sponge gently to remove excess water before placing it in place in your vagina. 

The sponge should be removed as often as an inner absorbent. When it is full, its weight pushes it naturally throw the entered of the vagina.

When removing it, it should be washed with cold water to remove all the blood, then rinse with hot water before reinserting it, if you prefer, you can also wash it with an organic intimate wash.

At the end of your period, you should carefully clean your sponge as described above and disinfect it with hot water and two drops of Melaleuca essential oil, let the sponge dip for an hour and allow to air dry.

Unlike the menstrual cup, menstrual sponges can be kept to make love, so your menstrual period will never disturb you in your intimate relations.

It is very unprobably that the sponge remain "trapped" in your vagina, anyway, if there is any difficulty in removing it, adopt the position of squatting and use the force of your pelvic muscles to expel it while inserting two fingers to pull it, especially if you have made love using the sponge, it will be deep in the vagina. 

Warning: Using a sea sponge is not recommended if you use an IUD.
