Every month women throughout the U.S. suffer through the same ailment, and each one can relate to the seven-plus days of misery. This suffering has been called numerous things but it is best known as menstruation. Each month women spend a vast amount of money on products required to get them through their menses. Products such as tampons, pads, panty liners, chocolate, pain relievers, salty snacks, sweets, and other things.
However, every year there are new cases of Toxic Shock Syndrome being reported from the use of tampons. Regular tampons are made with toxic chemicals like dioxin, fragrance, dyes, chlorine bleach, and synthetic fibers. These chemicals are all rolled into a cotton tube-like thing and being inserted into one of the most sensitive spots of a woman’s body. Those chemicals are reacting with the females own natural chemicals.
Organic tampons do not have any of those toxic chemicals. They are made from 100 percent organic cotton that is tightly interlocked cotton fibers. Organic tampons may cost more but when you take into account that your health is being safeguarded from the dangerous toxins, the extra cost is well worth it.
Nowadays you can also order what is called a “Period Box”. These boxes help in making your monthly period a little better. In these boxes, a woman can get tampons, sanitary pads, chocolate, popcorn, pain relievers, hair ties, Mardi gras beads, herbal teas, portal heating pads, and so much more. It all depends on what box you choose and what price range you wish to pay. For a monthly price or subscription, there are numerous options to choose from. You can also pick when you want the box to be delivered, whether it be at the first of every month, at the start of your monthly cycle, or twice a month.
A popular period box is Kali. Kali offers women chemical free tampons and pads. Kali offers many natural organic feminine essentials and will deliver them to your door every month. Each subscription box contains: 14 100% organic cotton tampons or 16 100% percent organic cotton pads, 10 wipettes, 10 thong panty liners, and one personal pampering product (examples are rosewater facial mist or lavender infused bath salt). There are options for regular absorbency, super, or ½ regular and ½ super tampons.
This company also dedicates that for every box sold, they will donate sanitary products to homeless shelters throughout the U.S. They feel that we as a collective group need to band together to help women less fortunate than ourselves. Now when Aunt Flo comes to visit us, it is a little less scary and much more pleasant.
