Sponges

 

Sea Sponges

Sponges are sustainably harvested from the ocean, grow organically in the wild, and can be composted when they start falling apart. They move in sync with the moon and the tides, similar to the way human cycles align with the moon and bodies of water. Sponges contain naturally occurring minerals like calcium, magnesium, iodine, and potassium. They also are one of the oldest living beings on earth!

Bath and facial sponges are gently exfoliating. If you’re interested in using sponges for your cycle (Ritual Moon Kit) they are soft and feel similar to the inside of the vagina. This makes them sex friendly. They shape to each unique body they are in. You can run them under warm water before putting them in, which feels really good especially when cramping.

They're also great for the environment! By using sponges you reduce the amount of trash in our landfills and oceans.

The most important thing about using sponges is the hygiene of both hands and the sponge. Before you receive your sponges, they have been sanitized with organic tea tree oil. So there's no need to clean them before using, unless of course you want to! If you have an allergy or strong preference against tea tree oil, please let us know & we will disinfect your sponges with peroxide instead. When you begin to bleed and are ready to use your sea sponge, follow the directions.

Some Tips

1) Be sure that the sponge is pushed up/back far enough, so that it can absorb properly. If the sponge is too low, you may experience leakage.

2) When the sponge has filled, use your fingers to pull it out.  If this feels new or difficult at first- don't worry- there's nowhere for the sponge to actually go (it can't get lost). Just relax, breathe, push, and your sponge will come out as you use your fingers to reach for it.  If you are worried about getting it out, you can sew a string or unflavored dental floss into it.
