You are now entering the TMI (to much info) blog post! The one where we discuss periods. We are woman, and we get them.  There is nothing to be ashamed of! Especially when you have a Natural, Green product like Veeda.

Veeda natural cotton tampons, pads and liners

After reading a fellow bloggers post of this product, I hopped onto their website to check them out.  I found my way into their shopping cart somehow!  A few days later, the company contacted me to offer samples to review! Well of course I said yes!

Have you ever stopped and thought “what are my tampons actually made from?”.  I was shocked to find out what was actually in the name brand tampons that I was willingly putting into my body every month.  We are so concerned with what we are putting into our bodies (food and drinks) and what we are putting onto our bodies (lotions and potions) but we forgot to think about what is in the little buggers that help us at that time of the month, every month.

My period and I are not close friends, more like acquaintances.  Between cramps, pimples and crabbiness, I would be fine if it left and never came back!

Every month, I am plagued with an intense headache, dizziness, and the feeling of wanting to throw up and/or sleep all day.  I never really understood it.  I just knew that is what always accompanied my period.  A nice little gift that Mother Natural would also bless me with every month.  It got so bad that I stopped using tampons and switched back to pads.

It wasn’t until then, that it hit me!  It’s the tampons causing all this extra nonsense every month.  I started to look into a more natural, healthier way to get through the week when Flow was in town.

Although, I was unable to find these at my local grocery store, they are easily bought off of their website and are super affordable!


I was able to get a full work day (8 hours) out of one of the tampons without getting a headache or any of the other symptoms that I usually would have gotten after 2 hours of wearing the other brands.

At night, I always wear a pad.  I got to test out the the UltraThin Natural Cotton Pads. They fit nicely, were not bulky, soft and absorbent.  If you have worn pads at any point, you know the feeling of “wearing a diaper”.  These hugged my body and felt, looked and sounded invisible.  If I had to wear one to work or out and about, I would have no issues doing so.

Purchase?  Absolutely! I will be placing an order soon!
