Yours Hormonally, Nikki

Yours Hormonally, Nikki

I’ve got an underactive thyroid, meaning that hormonal problems have pretty much always been a ‘thing’ for me. I never had much luck getting my GP to help me out with managing my thyroid problems. I got so bored of being told over and over again that I was ‘fine’ when I knew my body didn’t fee...

CBD and Me: Migraines, My Own Personal Everest

CBD and Me: Migraines, My Own Personal Everest

I have been a Headache Person for as long as I can remember. By which I mean, pain has been such a consistent feature in my life that it has become a part of my identity, a permanent fixture in the scenery of my life. I’ve had periods of my life where my chronic headaches have got so bad I cou...

When is CBD Not (just) CBD? The Essential Oils in holy cramp

When is CBD Not (just) CBD? The Essential Oils in holy cramp

When we created our pro-period CBD oil (the UK’s first, if ya didn’t already know) we wanted it to be more than just a CBD oil (lol at us saying “just”, as if CBD isn’t legitimately revolutionising our lives). We wanted it to be the ultimate period-perfecting elixir. A tall order, we know. And...

What is TSS?

What is TSS?

Hi OHNE babes. I’m Bella and I write about periods for a living. But until less than a year ago, I thought that Toxic Shock Syndrome, or TSS, was caused by periods. Like, not by tampons, not by external toxins entering the body (despite the name), but by period blood. By our own gross peri...

If Your Body Could Speak, What Would it Say? Interview: The Blood Tales

If Your Body Could Speak, What Would it Say? Interview: The Blood Tales

So you probably know by now that, at OHNE, we’re pretty big into talking about period taboos, bitching about period taboos, and finding ways to flush those taboos right down the toilet where they belong. And we like to think we’re pretty good at it - if the number of customers proudly post...
