Ladies, today we're getting real...and real personal. We're talking about that time of the month.

As women, this is something we all experience, but I can't say there is one of us that looks forward to it. No, we count down those days in dread. For some, maybe that dread is purely out of inconvenience...maybe it limits our fashion choices or interferes with plans. But for many of us its also a matter of how it makes us feel. Honestly, having a period stinks. It leaves you feeling achy all over, lacking energy and just plain ol' blah. Am I right?

U by Kotex® and Walmart care about what matters the most to us during our periods, which is why they are asking women everywhere, 'What Matters to U?'

When that time of the month rolls around, what helps to make you feel like yourself? Do you indulge on sweet cravings? Perhaps you have found yoga or another exercise routine that helps keep you feeling your best? Maybe it's a beauty routine that makes you feel beautiful even when you don't feel at your best?

For me, nothing is more important than just feeling better. I want to find those solutions that truly help me get back to my every day life. As much as I would love to just lay in bed for those first few days and veg out with a favorite TV show and comfort food, with two little ones to care for, that's simply not an option! One thing that has always made me feel a little better no matter what ails me has been essential oils. Thankfully there are also many great oils that are ideal for that time of the month too! So, I created a bath salt to help us all get back to us.

'That Time of the Month' Essential Oil Bath Salt

  • 1 Cup Epsom Salt
  • 1 Cup Sea Salt
  • Lavender Essential Oil
  • Clary Sage Essential Oil
  • Jar for Storage

  1. First up, blend your salts together.
  2. Slowly mix the essential oils in with the salt, making sure to blend well so that all salt comes in contact with them.
  3. Store in a jar or other closed container for use.
  4. Add a few tablespoons of your salts to a warm bath and allow to dissolve.
  5. Soak in a warm bath and forget about those period pains.

This super simple essential oil recipe truly can help make you feel more like your old self and get you back to your real life, no matter what time of the month!


Now that we've found some relief we also have to talk about the other products that we need to get through that time of the month... pads and liners! I know that I can trust Walmart to have everything I need at a great value including personal care items, so I headed to my local store to find just the right products to get me through, which I found with U by Kotex®!

I don't want to feel like I'm wearing a diaper, I want products that make me feel like myself--- to keep me comfortable and confident as I go on about my day.  It's not just about leak protection, it's about finding a product that makes you feel good...that makes you feel like your best self... not just you during your period self!
