Woman uses her menstrual blood as Facemask And It Leaves Her Skin ‘Glowing’

A woman says period blood facials leave her skin “glowing”.

Mary Miranda believes fluid has “healing” properties and also uses it to paint pictures and water her plants.
But the 36-year-old, from Chicago, USA, hasn’t always felt as comfortable about her menstrual cycle.

During her teenage years, her periods were very painful and could last for eight days at a time.

The bleeding was very irregular and only came three or four times a year, which she initially didn’t realise was abnormal.

Even when she was taking birth control, Mary’s period pain didn’t ease and in 2006 she was diagnosed with an ovarian cyst.

Doctors conducted a salpingo-oophorectomy to remove her right ovary and advised Mary to keep taking birth control.

But not wanting to keep pumping hormones into her body, the patient came off the pill in 2008.

Her excruciating bleeds continued – and brought on unpleasant side-effects like vomiting, low blood pressure and profuse sweating.

She visited A&E for medical attention twice.

And in 2017, doctors found a three-and-a-half inch non-cancerous growth on her uterus and another cyst on her left ovary.

In February the following year, Mary had myomectomy surgery to remove her uterine fibroid and ovarian cyst and save her reproductive system.

Mary worried her health would continue to spiral and she’d have to undergo a hysterectomy.

She started researching holistic treatments as an alternative – and discovered the practice of Moon Blood rituals.

This technique involves welcoming and honouring menstruation instead of dreading it.

Mary said: “I was on the verge of almost getting a hysterectomy two years ago and never menstruating again. I prayed every day and asked for my uterus and left side-ovary to be saved.

“I promised to honour and worship my womb and periods with reverence each month if they were saved and now I look forward to each month.

“Now it is a time to celebrate and I want women to also experience this.”

To celebrate her cycle, Mary gives herself facials using her period blood.

She leaves the fluid on her face for up to 30 minutes, as well as painting with it, dancing to it and “watering” her plants with it.

Mary added: “Menstrual blood is healing and has anti-inflammatory properties and is full of rich nutrients and minerals like zinc, copper, magnesium, calcium, sodium, iron, nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium.

“My face always feels softer, more nourished and it glows. I have noticed it has helped improve my skin condition from acne scars I had and pigmentation. My skin on my face just feels healthier for me.

“You can do a test by offering your menstrual blood diluted in water to your plants and see them grow and get healthier. I have friends whose flowers started blooming right away…

“For me, creating art with my menstrual blood is an act of honouring it and not just tossing my blood in the toilet. It is to truly cherish it and make magic with it.”

While her methods are unconventional, Mary has seen her pain subside since going down the holistic route.

The American woman said: “I have my life back during my periods and can leave my home. I’m no longer crying from the excruciating pain while hugging my heating pad or puking in the toilet. The painful PMSing, the cramps, the Endometriosis pain, it all started dissipating month after month since I started reconnecting with my body, womb and periods.

“I highly believe reconnecting with my body, womb and period helped me improve and heal my reproductive health issues and this allowed me to embrace my periods even more.

“My periods are now something I look forward to and I’m excited to receive them each month.”

She added: “My intention is to help women heal the stigma, mindset, feelings and relationship with their periods and see them as sacred, beautiful, powerful, a part of their femininity and hopefully pain-free.

“Start with small rituals to reconnect with your body, womb and period. Start speaking to your womb, sending it love and asking for guidance.

“There’s nothing shameful or sinful about you. You are sacred, worthy and powerful, simply because you are a woman.”
