20-24 Pack of Large Menstrual Pads, disposable or cloth (chemical free is recommended)
2 1/2 Cups of Aloe Vera (colour and scent free, 100% aloe is the best option)
1 1/4 Cups of Witch Hazel
1/4 Cup of Jojoba Oil or Lavender Oil
1 Box of XLarge Freezer Bags
1) Buy the largest sanitary pads you can find, they don't need to be name brand pads, as long as they are long and thick, the will do the job.
2) Mix the Aloe, Witch Hazel (astringent helps heal skin) and Oil (lavender helps calm inflammation), together in a bowl, you can add more Aloe if you like.
3) Lay out the pads on a clean cookie sheet one beside the other, using a spoon, spread approximately 3 tablespoons of the mixture over the top of the pads.
4) Keeping the pads open lay one on top of the other and place inside Ziplock bags. Keep frozen and remove as needed. Usually 4-5 pads per day. Make more if needed.
I recommend cutting up some puppy pads in half and folding in three or placing a small face towel between your underwear and the pad to help with absorbency and to protect undergarments.
