These natural sponges have been carefully selected to be used as a menstrual product. Besides being practical and ecological, they do not interfere with the natural fluids our bodies and only absorb what the body is naturally let go. For millennia, sea sponges have been used by women in ancient costal cultures for their monthly needs.
Like all cycles in nature -day and night, the seasons, ebb and flow of tides, the waxing and waning of the moon- the menstrual cycle in women is also a natural cycle worth respecting and honoring. It is a very useful source of knowledge about ourselves and an excellent indicator of our overall state of health. Try a sponge as a healthier alternative to disposable polluting products.
