"Who would think that something topical could really help cramps? I didn't! I grew up depending on Midol and painkillers to address serious menstrual pain, and then after overhauling a lot of habits when I hit 30, I turned to natural remedies instead.
The recipe was inspired by my partner, who made my cramps look like a day at the beach. She used to have to spend at least one day/month completely out of commission because of cramps and she had tried EVERYTHING.
I was working at an herb shop and thought "What the heck, I'll mix up some antispasmodic herbs and oils and see what happens- It can't hurt." Taking some of the beautiful herbs that help cramps as a tea/tincture (motherwort, crampbark, raspberry leaf, ginger, rosehips, lavender, and more), I mixed them into a coconut oil concoction to gather their energy, made a wish, and then added essential oils that relieve tight muscles. A dash of arnica infused oil, jojoba oil, shea butter, and voila!
Here's the best part: IT WORKED for my partner. As soon as the cramps started to flare up, she laid down and massaged the potion into her womb/lower abdomen and THEY WENT AWAY. So, tested and approved by one serious cramping babe. I was skeptical of my own creation, but the topical application is the real deal."
