For each one of us, it is very important to maintain proper hygiene methods and make sure we are always clean, free of infections and anything that might cause infections. For females, it is even more important to take hygiene seriously because they menstruate for almost a week every month and it is during this phase that chances of infections are the highest.

While there are many products such as sanitary pads, tampons, cleaning agents, soaps etc. present in the market to ensure hygiene, there are also many natural and side-effect-free products that you can try as well. The following are the top natural products for maintaining female hygiene:

Cloth Pads

One of the best ways to go natural when it comes to maintaining hygiene is to make use of cloth pads. Many years ago when menstrual pads or sanitary pads were not introduced, females used to use cloth pads for absorbing the menstrual flow. Unlike synthetic pads, these do not harm the environment in any way and are also free of any chemicals. They do not contribute to the landfill waste and thus do not lead to pollution of any kind.  They are sold at certain medical stores or natural product stores and are also available in kits.These are mostly made using organic cotton.

Sea Sponge Tampons

Sea sponges are natural sponges which are obtained from the ocean and are also known as sea pearls. They are treated in workshops to make them trimmed, inspected and washed so that they can be then used as natural tampons. They work pretty much the same way and absorb the menstrual flow. They have high absorbency capacity and are reusable for about 3-6 months.  They are free of any chemicals, bleach, dyes, fragrance or any other such thing and are highly natural and effective.

Organic Menstrual Pads

Organic menstrual pads are those kinds of pads or napkins which are disposable in nature and are free of any chemicals, dyes, fragrances or materials which may contribute to environmental waste.

Diva Cups

Diva cups or menstrual cups are a very popular kind of a natural female hygiene product which is inserted into the vagina of a female so as to control the flow of blood in the most natural way. Such cups do not have any artificial material present in them and are free of dyes, fragrances, chlorine and bleaches etc. they do not contribute to the killing of any natural beneficial organisms present in the vagina canal, unlike tampons.

Handmade Soaps

Another natural way to maintain female hygiene is to opt for natural or handmade soaps rather than synthetic soaps or body washes. Natural or handmade soaps are made using purely natural ingredients or materials which do not cause any side effects or even water pollution. They are free of chemicals and hence help females take care of their hygiene in a much more safe way.  Also they are less wasteful and often available for a cheaper cost.
