Nurture Through The Cycles

Learn about your cycle & how to nurture yourself in the process! You can follow the moon with this too, so even if you have finished your bleeding and have gone through menopause you still have a rhythmic and lunar cyclic nature.

 

Firstly we pair up the monthly lunar cycle with women and their 28 day menstrual cycle. Then we break it up into 4 weeks in the month. Each week representing a season – Winter, Spring, Summer, Autumn.

Think about yourself and how you fluctuate over the monthly cycle…

A womans cycle is approximately 28 days…so it’s not just the few days we’re bleeding. It is all of that and the rest! It’s super helpful to know a womans mental state, sex drive and ability to communicate is biologically affected by her moon/menstrual cycle.

The good news is there is a formula for working with hormonal/moon cycles rather than being overwhelmed/confused by them.

Of course nurturing yourself is SO important…and this is where EVOHE comes in.

Winter (Wise Woman)

In WINTER I’m feeling IT (physically & intuitively)

This is when we are bleeding and feeling our most vulnerable. We would most likely rather stay at home cosy in bed.

Practical Tips for our Wise Women

  • Unplug and take a rest!
  • Step back from social conversations, avoid big decisions
  • Look after yourself with a womens herbal blend
  • Listen to a nourishing audiobook
  • Aim to take a whole day off while you bleed
  • Say no to things that can wait until Spring/Summer
  • Try and meditate
  • Take a long shower & soak in magnesium oil
  • Wear extra comfy clothes
  • Eat nutrient rich yummy ‘comfort’ food

EVOHE Tips for our Wise Women

Repair Intensive
As the name suggests, Repair Intensive is like having a best friend on your bedside table or in your handbag. Just stopping & slowing down for a couple of minutes to consciously connect, breathe and massage your hands can make all the difference!

Omega Body
Take a long, warm shower and massage the womb, breasts and lower back with this lush oil! Be a little decadent and allow the water to run over your body as you massage the oil into your skin.

elluminate Night Cream
I’ll be honest. Sometimes during my Winter/bleeding phase I look at myself in the mirror and I see myself as the elder or to put it bluntly – the crone or hag. This is a time where your skin needs all the help it can get.

In SUMMER I’m doing IT (taking action, embracing life with open arms)

Biologically our happy hormones are peaking mid way through at the time of ovulation – we are our most fertile and as with nature we are ‘out and about’.

  • Dance under the full moon!

Autumn (Medicine Woman)

In AUTUMN I’m being IT (review & assess, no filters)

This is where our hormones are dropping to their lowest up to the time of bleeding. This is usually the time when you see women (to be honest) at their worst. They can be intolerant and quick to temper. To the point of such rage that it causes great pain for those around her and seriously burns bridges. It can also be a very confusing time because just 1 week ago she was ovulating and ‘on top of the world’. We may be quick to think that because of these ‘mood swings’ there must be something seriously wrong with us and given negative input by family, friends and society we might even believe that and go further into thinking we have  a mental condition (which is often not the case) – if anything we are just hormonally depleted. That’s all.

Practical Tips for our Medicine Woman

  • Problem solve on paper
  • Do a creative review of your life
  • Book a self development session/mentoring for this week
  • Get out in nature
  • Prepare the house for Winter – tidy, declutter & cook
  • Focus on your breath
  • Allow yourself to change gear and slow down

EVOHE Tips for our Medicine Woman

Foam Wash
It’s time to cleanse. Let go of what was and what didn’t become. Rinse and cleanse again.

Cleanse
Double cleansing is a powerful ritual for your skin and essential if you are out in the world everyday, in different environments and around different people.

Harmonie Oil
A cocophancy of intricate scents from magical and medicinal plants – this blend helps you to step into your medicine woman and be the cauldron of creation and the master of yourself. It’s also just a great way to ‘interrupt the pattern’ if you are having a “cray cray moment.”

elluminate Toner
Our emotional skin can get thin during this time so I invite you to take the opportunity to go deep. Organic fermented lactic acid is a great alliance to have in your tool kit and helps let go of epidermis you no longer need!
