The natural rhythm of the menstrual cycle aligns itself with the cycles of the moon. Following the pattern of the moon along with seeds and oils supports hormonal balance and can help regulate the menstrual cycle. 

 

Phase 1 (days 1-14): NEW MOON: 1 tbsp ground flaxseeds, 1 tbsp ground pumpkin seeds and 3g fish or flax oil 

Day 15: FULL MOON and OVULATION 

Phase 2 (days 15-28): 1 tbsp ground sunflower seeds, 1 tbsp ground sesame seeds and 2g evening primrose oil
