Your monthly bleed is an invitation to provide your body with radical rest + deep nourishment. It is said that during our menstruation we have heightened intuition. Giving yourself permission to slow down with sacred moon-time self care rituals can help you connect with the wisdom of your womb to receive those intuitive messages.
Asking your womb space in meditation “what am I releasing this cycle?” and “what am I making space for?” can lead to some interesting insights.

- Cacao holds a potent cocktail of anti-oxidants including magnesium + iron to offer replenishment to the body during and after your bleed. The Theobromine in Cacao is a vasodilator, meaning it widens the blood vessels which allows for easier blood flow, helping to reduce cramping associated with menstruation. Cacao contains high amounts amounts of a compound called phenethylamine that causes brain cells to release dopamine, serotonin + anandamine which all have significant influence on regulating our mood. Promoting a blissful, happy mood + positive outlook.

- Ashwagandha is an ancient medicinal herb classified as an adaptogen, meaning that it can help your body adapt to managing stress. Scientific studies show the benefits of reducing anxiety and low mood, which can often be a symptom of PMS.
- Turmeric is well-known for it’s anti-inflammatory + anti-oxidant properties as a result of the compound curcumin, which is the main active ingredient in turmeric.
- Black Pepper contains peperine which works as a natural substance that enhances the absorption of curcumin by 2,000%
Measure 25g Cacao + 3/4 cup of hot water, add to a blender + mix until smooth.
Sit in a quiet place where you will be undisturbed, light a candle and some incense. We recommend using Copal as per Mayan tradition, you can use this to bless your space + your Cacao. Hold your Cacao at your heart space + close the eyes. Take a few deep breaths, settle into stillness and take a moment to check in with your heart + your womb by bringing awareness to these places. Set an intention for drinking this medicine such as “my intention is to lovingly replenish my body with nutrients” or “my intention is to slow down + allow myself to rest without guilt or judgement”. You may wish to meditate + journal about your experience afterwards.
We recommend drinking 1 cup per day in the morning during your bleed.
