ProMeno Women's Wild Yam Cream is MoonMaid's herbal alternative to the bio-identical progesterone creams. This cream is a unique blend of wild yam, vitex, comfrey, and our Signature Blend of essential oils and flower essences. This cream is incredibly silky, luxurious and smells fantastic!!! Use anywhere on the body. It is a lovely face cream at night. Made from organic olive oil, ProMeno will "feed the skin." The Clary Sage essential oil in my blend is calming and relaxing. Used as a nourishing face cream before bed, it will help to lull you off to sweet slumber. A very "little dab will do ya."
Women experience all sorts of "symptoms" when the menstrual cycle begins to change, as we age. Vaginal dryness, night sweats, low sex drive, and a sudden need for some sort of "vaginal lubrication" during intercourse. All signs of our shifting hormones, just like puberty. All of these issues seem to stem from low progesterone. Progesterone, though our middle hormone, is so critical for keeping our estrogens balanced. And progesterone is made from wild yam.
With so many estrogens in our outer world, it is difficult for our bodies to keep up the production. Hence, the emergence of bio-identical hormone products and wild yam creams. ProMeno is a WILD YAM CREAM. Chemical and hormone free. If you are still menstruating there is no need to use this product during your cycle. (See Vital V, our WILD YAM SALVE, that is specifically for dryness in the vaginal area.)
Women everywhere these days suffer from hormone imbalance, ie menopause, peri-menopause, PMS, and many more issues. Estrogen in our food and environment is contributing to this problem. Prescription hormones and bio-identical hormones are very popular to address the above-mentioned issues. Progesterone is conjugated from the alkaloid "diosgenin" found in wild yam (Dioscorea villosa). ProMeno Women's Wild Yam Cream is made from an olive oil infusion of wild yam with vitex (Agnus castus) and comfrey (Symphytum officinalis).
Wild yam is an herb that has been used for hormone issues by herbalists and native peoples for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. Additionally, wild yam has anti-inflammatory properties making this product popular as an eye cream. Wild Yam is a native medicinal plant here at Medicine Woods, it shows itself all around our Medicine Trail in the woods. We are not harvesting here to encourage the spread of this endangered woodland medicinal plant. We source the wild yam used from ethical wild-crafters throughout the USA.
