cosmofilius asked: i had never heard about blackstrap molasses to aid menstrual cramps relief but that's interesting! any more tips on how to deal with a painful menstruation? thanks :) xxxx
Really any form of food-based iron (or tablets, if that’s your thing) will aid in menstrual cramp relief but blackstrap molasses is affordable, highly concentrated and pretty damn good mixed in to banana smoothies (on it’s own it’s got what one might consider a “harsh” taste but normally I just shoot it back like cough syrup, lol). The potassium in molasses also helps relieve cramps… make sure it’s organic!
As for other tips: restorative yoga, warm scented baths, chamomile tea, lower belly self-massages and plenty of rest. <3
