Womb Packs…why they are so good!

Ever since reading Alexandra Popes Wild Genie book, i’ve been doing castor oil packs on my womb…they are so soothing, they ease cramps and generally help you relax…but, they are so messy…oil gets everywhere, wrapping myself in cling film just feels wrong and the stains…oh no! and this is what puts women off!

So, I have created a way to make doing a womb pack much more manageable! see my video here and read on for the benefits.

 

Womb packs are recommended for period pains, cramps, bloating, fibroids, endometriosis, tumours, cysts, scar tissue and more! Buy yours here!

Castor oil has been shown to increase circulation and promote elimination and healing of tissues and organs underneath the skin. It is particularly effective in being absorbed into the lymph circulation which can improve digestion, immune function and reduce swelling in injured joints and extremities.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU DO A CASTOR OIL PACK?

It’s a relaxing and supportive technique to do premenstrually and up to the first day of bleeding. It can be done up to 3 time a week.

Important- if you’re trying to conceive DON’T do packs after ovulation…stick to the first 10 days of your cycle.

Why do a Womb Pack?

Increased Circulation Castor oil works by stimulating the circulatory system, bringing fresh oxygenated blood to the reproductive organs.

Boosting your Immune system. Doing a womb pack stimulates the lymphatic system around the reproductive area which support the body to remove waste products, cleanse and heal whole area.

Detoxification & Reduced Inflammation If the castor oil pack is placed over the liver as well as the womb, this can be a great way to cleanse the liver, by increasing the blood circulation to the liver this improves liver function. A functioning liver is important to eliminate waste from the body. A sluggish lymphatic system can result in ‘dis-ease and inflammation’ in the body. Fpor the womb and reproductive organs this might be ovarian cysts, fibroids, and blocked Fallopian tubes. Womb packs reduce inflammation, cysts, fibroids, tumours, period pains and generally relax you.

Stress reduction Taking time out of your day to actually lie down and do the castor oil pack can help reduce stress.  Relax and focus on yourself and your womb, take the time to meditate, connect to your womb, read a great womby book!

Lie back and relax for about 20-60 minutes!

Storage

Store your used packs in a food bag, in the fridge- DO NOT WASH! Just top up with castor oil each time you use it and replace it in the fridge afterwards. When your pack starts to smell rancid its time to replace it.
