Problem: Vulvar Irritations
You moisturize your face, body and even your feet but what have you done lately for the vulva? There are many causes of vulvar irritations that can result in extreme itching, rawness, stinging, burning, and pain. The most common one is contact dermatitis caused by the chemicals in soaps, perfumes or synthetic fabrics. There are many benefits to moisturizing the skin around your vulva. Moisturizing can help increase elasticity of the vaginal and vulvar tissues and prevent chafing or irritation. It will help women who suffer from painful intercourse or vaginal dryness. For women nearing or experiencing menopause, there is a decline in estrogen, which can lead to dryness and increased chance for irritations.
Directions: Immediately stop using the products causing the irritations! (Note: it's important to see your gynecologist or dermatologist if the problem persists).
Hot flashes, mood swings, and sleep disturbances are common symptoms of menopause, which can oftentimes last for years. The endocannabinoid system has receptors in the female reproductive system. Menopause disrupts the typical function of this system, resulting in symptoms like sleep problems and mood disorders. CBD acts on the endocannabinoid system to provide balance to the chemical messages being sent, leading many women to cite relief.
