For Nicer Periods

It's finally here and available at Indigobaby




Why use the Lunette Menstrual Cup?

The advantages of Menstrual Cup

Lunette menstrual cup is a liberating alternative to disposable tampons and pads. Once you get a Lunette menstrual cup, you will never be left without menstrual protection again. You can say goodbye to uncomfortable, bulky pads and you don’t have to worry about getting different sized tampons to get through each period.

Easy

Lunette menstrual cup is economic and healthyThe Lunette menstrual cup is as easy-to-use as a non-applicator tampon. Simply fold and insert. Because a Lunette can hold much more liquid than a tampon, it only needs to be emptied 2 to 4 times per day during normal flow, so the times you have to deal with it are less frequent.

Hygienic & Safe

With tampons, fibers can be caught in the vaginal canal upon removal and its absorpency can dry out the mucous membrane. Pads create a stifling, moist environment that is a breeding ground for yeast infections, bacteria and odor. The menstrual cup is more sanitary because it does not disrupt the natural lubricating ability of the vagina or interfere with the natural process of shedding menstrual blood, dead cells and bacteria.
The Lunette menstrual cup has received approval from government health agencies in multiple countries. Not only has Lunette received FDA approval in the United States, it has also been approved by the TGA, Australia's regulatory agency for drugs and medical devices. In Finland, all Lunette products have received the prestigious Key Flag emblem, a certification for the highest quality of Finnish products. For further piece of mine, there have been no reported cases of Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) in connection with the use of menstrual cups.
Lunette menstrual cup is environtamentally friendly

Economical

The average woman spends between $48 – 84 per year on disposable tampons and pads. The Lunette is a one-time cost that will last for years. That
saves you a chunk of money!

Environmentally friendly

A Lunette menstrual cup is an eco-thing. It will last for years and during the cup's lifespan, there will be no waste to dispose of – no accumulation of plastic applicators, wrappers or bio-waste from used tampons and pads. In fact, the Lunette box and enclosed informational material is made from recycled paper. In Finland, the Lunette menstrual cup is produced in a factory that gives priority to environmental issues.

Lifestyle Friendly

The Lunette menstrual cup can be worn during sports and other physical activities, just like a tampon. And there are extra benefits to having no strings:  sleeping naked is loads more comfortable, no risk of a peek-a-boo string at the beach, and cups are so discreet that your partner won't notice a thing during oral sex.

Sufficient

The Lunette menstrual cup can be worn at any time in your menstrual cycle, during your heaviest and your lightest flow, day and night. It eliminates the need to have "supplies" on hand at all times during period. No more smuggling tampons up your sleeve or taking your purse to the restroom.

Innovative

The lining of the Lunette menstrual cup is smooth which makes cleaning very easy. Because the tab of the Lunette menstrual cup is flat, it does not collect bacteria. You can disinfect the cup by boiling it briefly in water, using the Lunette disinfecting wipes, or rubbing alcohol.
Lunette menstrual cup makes periods greener

Did you know?

  • The average woman uses approximately 17,000 tampons, pads or pantyliners in her lifetime.
  • 4.3 billion disposable menstrual protection products (pads, tampons, panty liners) are used per year in the UK.
  • 2.5 million tampons, 1.4 million sanitary towels, and 700, 000 panty liners are flushed down the toilet every day in the UK (2006).
  • 75% of blocked drains are caused by flushing sanitary protection products.

Lunette menstrual cup is an alternative way for women to reduce human impact on the environment — every month.

FLOW Boho Retreat at Flotsam and Jetsam, La Union

December 27 to 29, 2013

the last days of the year and we were off to La Union for another FLOW Surf Yoga Samba Weekend Retreat, but with a smaller group this time. 

I love how we all bonded and got to really know each other. 

We arrived and the air was quite chilly but lounging on the beanbags to a game of speed dating was good to break the ice!


The schedule was a lot looser and this was exactly what I needed..this was the first time that FLOW felt like a vacation for me:) and having the kiddies with me to enjoy the beach was more than i could ever ask for! 

Flotsam and Jetsam Artist Hostel is sooo damn cute!! I love it there!

Evening ashtanga yoga with Carla Suiza in the front lawn of Flotsam and Jetsam to break a sweat.

The waves were quite messy so we didnt get to swim that much, but was soooo happy to soak in the sun!

Paxyboo loved the sun and sand, as always! 

We took a jeep to Bacnotan where the waves were friendlier and Luke Landrigan and the instructors of San Juan Surf Resort taught surfing lessons. 

Smoothie workshop always a treat! Thanks Moringana, Lightwater and Superfood Grocer for the goodies!


Wood-fire oven pizza was good, sangria for p100 was awesome! 

Sunset samba with Bogey and Denise of Samba School Imperatriz Filipinense plus Benny on the tambo since drum director Toni wasnt with us. 

 Movies projected on an outdoor screen to cap the night off. 

Greek lunch with the FLOW group and our new found friends before the ride home. 


Excited for the next retreat! 

getting stoked, relaxing garden yoga sessions, samba drumming and dancing, making green shakes and raw snacks, outdoor film showings, napping on bean bags, enjoying sunsets with a jar of sangria, hearty breakfast food, wood fired pizzas, making new friends and making awesome memories! and that's how we ended 2013!



thank you to everyone who joined and supported our last retreat of the year! thank you for that wonderful flow weekend!

Keep posted for FLOW's calendar of retreats for 2014! Coming soon!
