DIY-ing for Healthy Hormones and Better Periods
This is A HUGE STEP.
And it’s important that you give yourself a little what-what for putting in the effort to live more in sync with your natural and healthy female cycles.
DIY-ing can be a fun, frugal, and uber-clean way to minimize the hormone-mimicking compounds that cause and/or worsen PMS, acne, endometriosis, PCOS, infertility, and hormonal disruptions…just to name a few.
Here’s are a few reasons you might be well-suited to get into DIY-ing more:
- You’re dealing with major life-disrupting health problems and require complete control over the substances that come in contact with your body. (If this is you, you probably already know that this is for you!)
- You find it fun, relaxing, and stimulating to get your hands dirty in the kitchen.
- You’re working with a tight budget that makes it difficult to buy high-quality products without a bunch of junk.
Not everyone is up for DIY-ing, though…and that’s ok! If you’ve stumbled onto this page and are thinking, “This ain’t for me!”, make sure you grab this free guide (insert BeautyCounter/alternatives guide) or our Toxic Home Makeover Guide to find the products we recommend.
