Every woman is intimately tied to nature. Throughout a woman’s life, several natural transitions are influenced by hormones, which are often in sync with nature’s cycles. The menstrual cycle follows the moon’s cycle, ebbing and flowing every 28 days, in most cases. A woman’s body can grow and change, like the earth, in each new season or stage of life. From the first stages of initiation into womanhood with the onset of menses, into the childbearing years, and then the natural shift to menopause, a woman’s body is designed to evolve and change.
Perhaps this relationship with the cycles of nature has something to do with the powerful connection that plants can have in supporting women’s health. For thousands of years, herbs have been used as part of daily life to support the journey of womanhood.
