Skin can become dry, itchy and more sensitive when going through ‘the change’. The Soothe & Protect Teddy Bear Gift Set includes a luxuriously nourishing lip balm, a regenerating natural calendula soap and Menomagic - an organic, paraben-free treatment formulated to relieve itchiness/dry skin as well as other symptoms including hot flushes and night sweats.
We all know the importance of good quality sleep, but menopause symptoms such as night sweats and irritated skin can make it very difficult to rest well. The Original Chillow Pillow® insert uses a unique water based cooling system to soothe the body and mind so that it is easier to drift off.
Although every woman’s journey through the menopause is different, there are a handful of common symptoms that most women experience. The Menopause Super Bundle addresses some of these common symptoms including hot flushes, headaches, mood changes, discomfort and sleep disturbance. You’ll find space and support in Me & My Menopausal Vagina, Janes Lewis’ informative and often hilarious book about her experiences at midlife. You might enjoy reading it during a long, relaxing bath using the Lotus Therapies Bath Soak or as a hands-free reading experience propped up in the iBeani; a soft, versatile stand for books and tablets.
