This kit is a 3 step system to treat and reduce chronic period pain. Belly Jelly helps reduce and prevent inflammation, improve lymphatic function (hormone balancing) and increase circulation. By focussing on the underlying causes of period pain the better cycle kit can help improve your cycle long term.
Belly Jelly is scientifically proven to increase the production of lymphocytes in the blood within hours of application. A healthy lymphatic system allows the free flow of progesterone. When progesterone's flow is limited, excess estrogen builds up. Excess estrogen is linked to increased cramping, headaches and PMS.
ingredients: hydrogenated castor jelly, calendula oil
the flaxseed heat pad contains 100% organic flaxseed grown in Canada and chamomile essential oil. It comes with an organic cotton liner, and eco-cert organic cotton cover that can be removed for washing.
the belly band is a bamboo cotton blend.
Simply apply belly jelly to the abdomen focussing on the right side under your ribs (where your liver is). Tie your belly band around your belly so that the jelly is completely covered. And lastly apply your flaxseed heat pad over top to help absorption and relax.
Leave the treatment on for 30-45 minutes. This process can be done to ease pain in the moment or as a 30-day treatment to relieve and prevent more chronic symptoms.
Castor treatments for chronic period pain and PMS management have been around for centuries (potentially millenia). What makes this kit so special is the ease of application. What is typically a very sticky and oily treatment is now a mess-free jelly with the added benefits of calendula for pain relief.
+ Bamboo Belly band is a cozy, stretchy compression band that feels soft on the skin while protecting clothing and trapping heat
+ Flaxseed Heatpad is infused with chamomile for an aromatic experience that improves absorption
Can I reuse my Belly Band?
Yes! When you’re done, store your belly wrap in an airtight container. It can be used about 30 times before needing to be replaced. The jelly will not come out in the wash.
Can I use this while pregnant or breastfeeding?
Although castor jelly is a natural and safe product. We recommend checking with your health care provider before using while pregnant or breastfeeding.
How do I warm up my flaxseed heat pad?
You can warm up your heat pad in the microwave for 2 minutes or you can preheat your oven to 350F, turn it off, and place the heat pad in the oven on a tray for 10-15 minutes.
What are the detailed steps of this treatment?
- Apply Belly Jelly liberally to your belly focusing on the lower belly where your uterus is and under your right rib cage where your liver is.
- Wrap your Belly Wrap around your abdomen the way you would wrap a towel. This traps the heat to help absorption and protects your heat pad and clothes from the jelly
- Place warm Flaxseed heat pad over the wrap to help absorption and increase circulation
- Relax for 30-45 min
- When you’re done, store your belly wrap in an air-tight container. It can be used about 30 times before you toss it
- Repeat for 30 days. If you have heavy periods - skip treatment for the days you’re bleeding. Using castor oil while menstruating can increase bleeding
