You might have heard lately that periods aren’t supposed to be shit...

But it doesn’t make sense, yours always have, your friends always have, everyone is using the contraceptive pill to get by, right?!

But there is a growing trend of period-tokers who want you to know they don’t have to be. That a lot of the problems we struggle with monthly can be at least helped if not alleviated altogether and that the first step in this is being un-taught the negative dogma surrounding periods.

Because let’s face it, they were created by and for the patriarchy. So release yourself from the Mojo Dojo Casa House of ‘The Man’ and come hang in the land of Period Empowerment.

Does this sound familiar?

“This course and Natasha’s expertise have been a massive help while going through investigations for painful periods. I’ve been able to communicate my experiences with doctors and advocate for myself in ways I struggled to before. It’s easy to follow, full of all the information we don’t get taught and much easier to apply to your day to day than a book”

A word from Natasha:'I founded Forage Botanicals after having suffered for years with period pain which seriously interfered with my life! I was ignored by the medical profession. It took me a long time to discover the amazing botanical pharmacy just outside my doorsteps and I hope Forage Botanical's products will make this so much more accessible for future sufferers.

My historical research at Oxford looks at why we designed medical items which are specific to a female experience such as the contraceptive pill, speculum, and birthing suites, and how these affect our experience and expectations of being female. This research informs my creative process to be conscientious of the way design affects gendered experiences.'

Our founder, Natasha Richardson has a Bsc (Hons) in herbal medicine and is trained as a doula and antenatal teacher. She ran a successful clinic for over 10 years helping with menstrual complaints from menarche to menopause before writing her book ‘Your Period Handbook’. Now she has a team that takes patients while she focuses on product development and community relationships whilst raising her son and researching at Oxford University on her Masters in design history where she has investigated women's medicine from 1850-2010.

I’m not having periods right now, will it be useful?
The course has a lot of information about natural cycles in it, but wether yuo’re using hormonal contraception or not having periods right now, you will find it useful if you’re intending to have periods again in the future.
