Intimate Self Care: Vaginal Rituals
By The Honey Pot Company
A face mask, yoga, meditation or even just a morning cup of coffee, we all have our everyday rituals that help to make life a little easier and are a way to take better care of yourself. While your overall health does affect your honeypot health, we put together a few easy rituals (we know you don’t have time for a 12-step vaginal care routine) to incorporate into your down-there hygiene self care.
- Let your honeypot breathe! Sleep sans underwear, and wear cotton undies during the day. Sorry, but those lacy thongs are not your friend when you’re trying to create a balanced vaginal pH. Instead stock up on breathable and lightweight natural cotton underwear.
- Relax- with no worries, and no scary toxins. Drop one of our fragrance- free bath bombs in your bath water, light a candle, and enjoy. Created with only soothing and 100% natural ingredients, stay in the tub as long as you like with no worries of irritation.
- Take time for yourself, even if it’s just a quick 10-minute walk outside in the middle of the day. Find moments to be still and re-connect with yourself. Keep our refreshing panty spray on hand to spray throughout the day. The lavender scent is calming and also keeps you fresh from head to toe without any artificial fragrances or chemicals.
- Not a daily ritual but an annual one. Don’t skip your yearly gynecologist appointment and vaginal check-up. Conditions like STIs, cysts, and irregular periods can often signal something is going on in your body but show no symptoms or become something that you learn to “deal” with. It’s best to let your doc check everything out and rule out anything serious.
Lastly, drinking plenty of water and eating fresh and healthy foods everyday are an important part of overall health (including taking care of your vagina). Continue reading our blog for more information on things that impact vaginal health.
