Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post and I did receive payment and pr samples to review, but this in no way biases my opinion of the brand. I would NEVER recommend something I didn’t love and use myself. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
If you’ve been reading my posts or follow me on social media you’ll know I’m a big fan of cbd and our remedy. I’ve used their cbd oil through the pandemic and love everything about the brand and their cbd oil.
Since I first tried their cbd they’re now added more products to their store including gift sets, different strengths of cbd and different flavour oils.
The Vegan Hot Chocolate and CBD Gift Box is the perfect and much needed treat, for a friend – or yourself!
Our Remedy is an award-winning wellness brand with a range of natural remedies for issues affecting women and people with periods, including sleep disruptions, anxiety, mood swings, hormonal imbalance, chronic pain and period cramps.
They sent me one of their beautiful hot chocolate boxes to review which are perfect for this chilly time of year. The festive season is full of delicious food and drink and all things cosy– hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows, cosy blankets, fluffy socks and binge watching stuff on Netflix.
What treats will you find inside?
- Vegan hot chocolate
- Vegan fluffy marshmallows
- Beautiful pink ceramic mug
- Our Remedy’s Moon Swings CBD oil
- The range is totally vegan and packaged sustainably, using eco-friendly vegetable inks and compostable shipping bags.
- Plus, every sale gives back – as we donate to Bloody Good Period for each bottle sold.
*If this is your first order I recommend you pick a bottle with pipette. Keep hold of the pipette and on your second order, you can buy a capped bottle and re-use the pipette. This saves so many perfect re-useable pipettes going into landfill! And you save £5 on your order!
CBD for periods
If you are someone who finds themselves taking paracetamol and ibuprofen every month because of sickening period pains, CBD may help you.
CBD is said to help relax smooth muscle tissue, which is the kind that lines the womb. When this muscle contracts it causes the pains. A dose of CBD daily throughout the month could help to beat those aches.
Our Remedy has a lovely peppermint flavour infused with clary sage that’s not overpowering. It has no adverse side effects and is easy to take.
Hot chocolate during your period
Studies say eating dark chocolate with a slightly lower count in sugars but higher in cacao beans can improve your mood swings, cramp and iron levels throughout the duration of your period. This type of chocolate will relax your muscles as it contains magnesium, omega-3 and omega 6 fatty acids. [Source]
It boosts your mood by increasing the amount of serotonin and endorphins in the body. It also could help to reduce cortisol, our natural stress hormone, and so it could raise mood in this way too.
Another ingredient that you can use in your dreamy hot chocolate to help with cramps is dairy-free milk like coconut, almond or rice milk. Most milks have a very good source of calcium and deficiency of calcium in women can lead to severe menstrual cramps.
I love collecting pretty mugs and the one in this set is so beautiful. Paired with the luxurious hot chocolate and marshmallows is a dream. Pure comfort and bliss in a mug – You can even add the cbd oil to your hot chocolate.
Dark chocolate will improve your mood swings, cramp and iron levels & relax your muscles as it contains magnesium, omega-3 and omega 6 fatty acids.
The warmth of the milk means your body can use it immediately without having to heat it up. It can also increase blood flow throughout your body and relax your muscles. This can lessen cramps caused by uterine contractions.
I love everything about Our Remedy and am definitely a fan for life. This set makes a lovely gift and is perfect for when you’re on your period as an all-round natural women’s wellness remedy.
This is a great gift that anyone would love. I highly recommend our remedy and hope you’ll give them a try. I experience a lot of pain, anxiety and issues with sleep so for me, it’s a great product that helps me every day not just during my period.
