As you open this month’s box I’m sure you’ll feel it was worth the wait! We thank you for your patience as things got really backlogged with all the hurricane delays from the east coast.
That said, this box is in many ways a culmination of the desire we have had with the Pampered Period Box – to provide you all with menstrual self care that is both high quality and deeply self caring.
This month we joined forces with TheWombAlchemy.com to create for you a comprehensive medicinal tea box that not only serves to sooth symptoms during your period, but also serves to soothe and support your entire menstrual cycle all month long. There are three teas for each of the 4 phases of your cycle and you all… these blends are beautiful, lush, organic blends that begged to be had.
The tea tins tell you what they are for, but you will also find a card inside that explains them further. Atourina, the creator of The Womb Alchemy and the teas also shared a little blurb with us regarding what the 4 phases of our cycles held as their main energetic on the following page.
And finally, you have all undoubtedly read the previous email Elena sent out regarding the long sabbatical we will be taking. The Pampered Period has been a gorgeous endeavor and all along our mission has remained true: To serve women in both their self care and menstrual health.
What we have found is that more wants to happen in this space and rather than push through until we figure that out, we will take a sabbatical, close down our external operations and go into a period of incubation to really flesh out what needs to happen here.
With that said, we thank you for joining us on this journey and we ask that you stay tuned! There will be more to say in the coming year!
Magdie and Elena
