We have been very picky when it comes to which brands we feature in our period kits and boxes. We want starting a period to be a positive experience, so, not only have we included some fantastic brands in our essential kit, but (equally important) some great, age-appropriate, pampering and wellbeing products.
These award-winning sanitary disposal bags are sustainably sourced and made from renewable materials. They provide an easy and hygienic way of disposing of your sanitary products.
There are 2 loops to put your finger and thumb in so that you can open the bag with one hand. A lot less stressful then rustling around trying to open a plastic bag. The bags are perfect to take out and about when there might not be a bin nearby, as they can be completely sealed shut and disposed of later.
Fab Little Bag products are included in all our Period kits

We are excited to introduce this gorgeous smelling pillow spray as an add-on to any of our period starter boxes. The spray is full of natural ingredients including Lavender, Vetiver, Frankincense and Cedarwood essential oils and it is paraben, sulphate and cruelty free.
Just a few sprays are required on the pilllow, clothes or teddy and it really does create a wonderfully relaxing feeling. I just managed to put my 6 year old in her own bed for the first time in months after she sprayed her own pillow, so as well as having a positive effect on her wellbeing it also encourages independence and positive sleeping habits. All 3 girls had a restful sleep and woke up feeling fresh (and therefore so did I!)
This product has been created by an amazing mum and her 3 daughters, passionate about the importance of sleep and it's effect on a child's wellbeing.
