This is a bath sachet blend to bring comfort, relaxation and relief to any woman during her menstruation - particularly with younger women in mind, who may be learning to pay attention to the signals their bodies send them and may be more likely to have painful periods or cramps. You feel that ache in your back, some cramps in the lower belly, you feel a bit low or a bit tired - and you know your bleed is on the way. Sink into this warm, comforting bath, let every inch of you relax, and take the time for rest and self-nurture.

Along with the Moon Cycle Bliss herbal tea, this makes an ideal gift for our daughters as they begin their menarche and learn the women's wisdom of the rhythms and cycles of life.

The Moon Cycle PMS tea was wonderful. I started taking it when I felt a couple of cramps creeping up - my periods are not regular so I wasn't sure if it was my period or not. I took it about twice a day for a week and then my period arrived. Each time I took it I felt an immediate effect of calming. I am sure it relieved not only the uterine cramping (which disappeared during the drinking of the tea each time), but also some tension in my moods, and also my incessant back pain. Normally I would have painful cramping in my uterus for a few days prior to bleeding and really painful cramping a couple of days into it. This time there was so little cramping I wouldn't have known I was getting my period. My mood was regulated and I found it easier to enjoy the heightened emotion and intelligence that I find often accompanies my period, though is usually swamped by the negative effects of PMS.

So thank you! Not only is the tea delicious, and immediately relieving, it definitely had a positive systemic effect.

Just wanted to let you know that I'm completely amazed by about how quickly the PMS-ease and Moon Cycle Bliss tea has worked for me after only drinking a couple of cups for the second day now, my water retention and breast tenderness have pretty much disappeared! Am going to use the bath sachet on the weekend.
Thanks for sending my order so quickly.
