A natural period cramp relief patch that promises to 'relax the muscles and provide discreet and continuous relief from period pain' and endometriosis has been earning rave reviews online.
BeYou's period cramp relief patches, which cost £6.99 for a pack of five, contain eucalyptus oil and menthol. "These get absorbed (slowly) through the skin and help ease the muscular tension which causes period cramps," the company says.
The eucalyptus oil has a number of properties which make it suitable to help ease the muscular tension which causes period cramp pains, according to BeYou, including its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties.
Menthol, meanwhile, has natural antinociceptive properties, which results in hyperpolarization, meaning it can block impulses from pain receptors. "It's the reason why participants in associated studies observe a reduction in pain sensations," BeYou says on its site.
The company says the patches can provide up to 12 hours of relief and get rid of the need for pain killers and hot water bottles.
BeYou also says its patches can be used to help treat the symptoms of endometriosis. "Countless women with endometriosis have told us our patch has been a life saver for them," it says.
Giving the product five stars on Amazon, one customer called Kru said: "I thought I'd try these patches given they are 100% natural and I can't thank you enough! I wore it to work, and normally I struggle throughout the day. Within a few minutes I felt the ingredients tingle and the pain really started to subside. The patch lasted around 8 hours for me, and then I used another one before sleeping.
"Thank you SO much for this amazing product!!! I'll definitely be recommending to my girlfriends!"
Another Amazon customer said: "I suffer with really bad pains during my period and have been looking for an alternative to paracetamol to help me through my worst days and these really helped me!"
H Patel added: "I like to wear one on my first couple of days when my pain is at its highest. It's easy to peel, use and feels cool and tingling."
A final customer wrote: "Thank you for bringing this into my life. This has really helped me manage my pain. I hope you bring out more stuff like this because I'm already sold! Thanks again."
To apply the patches, simply peel the back off, and place it where the pain is. "Most women get period cramps on the belly (lower abdomen) so that's a good place to start if you are unsure," BeYou says.
