A woman named Jasmine Alicia Cater has caused a huge stir on the internet after she disclosed the huge benefit of menstrual blood.
According to her, she drinks her menstrual period and uses it as a body lotion which she claimed helps to improve her health and boost her spiritual wellbeing.
The mother of one who hails from Barcelona in Spain, says that she never missed out on collecting her monthly flow of blood as she applies it as a facemask and uses it in creating ‘period paintings’ which helps to improve her physical and spiritual health, and her husband fully approved it.
The 30-year-old mother is said to be a Sacred Woman’s Empowerment mentor who helps and coaches women ‘to understand and reclaim the inherent sacredness that lies within their entire menstrual cycle.’
“Understanding and reclaiming my period has given me a whole new appreciation for myself and for women,” Carter stated. She also added that she uses her menstrual blood in the creation of art and revealed that she mixes it with water to create different tones.
We are here because of our vaginas and our blood and women don’t take enough credit for that. Instead, throughout time, women have been taught to feel ashamed of our periods.’
If you look at tempos and sanitary pads, they’re floral scented and full of chemicals to hide our blood and compromise the natural functioning of our periods.
But in reality. Your menstrual blood is highly packed with all the nutrients that we need.’
She added that menstrual blood is a pure medicine and has many functions for the benefit of those who use it.
‘It’s rich with protein, copper, selenium which many women are so depleted of. It contains regenerative stem cells and has antimicrobial as well as detoxifying properties.’
Carter further disclosed how she uses in reclaiming her menstrual blood; ‘when I drink my blood, I will usually squat on the toilet, remove my menstrual cup and take a sip. I’m so connected to my body that I know exactly how much blood to drink. Sometimes I take a sip and sometimes it’s a whole menstrual cup.’
