We are a Nonprofit for women - 100% of every purchase made goes back into the period community

OUR STORY

a nonprofit for women


Divine Drops was created for ALL women. Through every drop you purchase, up to six lives will be forever changed with a sustainable solution, a community of peers, and someone to remind her how precious yet powerful she is. You can provide them with the opportunity to prioritize their education, health, and purpose - without letting any rainy period day get in the way. 

We are a revolution. We're the line on top of the period (!!!). We’re here to break the stereotypes, the stigmas, and the boys' wrists that still think our menstruation is “gross.” We’re here to say Sir, did you forget where you came from? and Sis, did you forget about the magic within you?!"

As a true 501c3 non-profit, we want to be transparent on where your money goes and how it helps our mission. We want to gain the name as a trusted resource and inspiration for all women. Our board of directors are filled entirely with women - powerful women at that, who are all board-certified medical professionals!

Time to find the power in your period.

OUR PRODUCTS

Our period products are designed by women to inspire other women to manage their period with as little stress, interruption, and resources as possible. Who knows a woman better than another, right? Divine Drops reduces period waste almost entirely, as a woman only needs her Divine Drops products and the ability to clean them for a long-term solution to period maintenance. Through our products, we grant women the freedom to live their life free of worry, shame, and toxins. Every item we donate, it means a life changed and the realization and possibility that one drop can cause such a lasting ripple effect of change.


We promise that all of the products we sell will be reusable and free of harmful toxins. We think it’s time more women start being empowered to understand what is in products us and our families consume and push back at these careless companies. Everything we do is created with the woman in mind, so our products are:

A MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDER

Hey gals!


Thank you for being here! A few years back, like many women, I hadn’t made peace with my period. Little did I know that the products I was putting INSIDE my body were actually harming me. The pain from cramps was so bad, I sought a solution that most women turn to: birth control. I found myself at the doctor, thinking I had done my research with the medicine I wanted to try. Without any serious testing about my hormone situation, they were more than happy to prescribe what I had asked for. 


For the next year, my birth control masked my period cramp problem and seemed to help - even though it was actually slowly building into a mountain I would later have to climb. A great friend opened up to me and told me about the menstrual cup she was using and how it changed her period game. With a little hesitation, I gave it a try... and it forever changed my life! The light bulb went off and I KNEW I would never use a tampon again. I ended up quitting birth control - but I was STILL looking to find the balance I had lost during that season of my life. 


So, I decided to take a trip around the world (I had imagined and hoped for an “Eat Pray Love” type of travel situation). For the next two months, my backpack and I traveled around Asia & Europe for the self discovery trip of a lifetime. The experiences were endless - but one of the most impactful things happened to me while I was in the Philippines, volunteering for a few weeks with another non-profit. I met a group of women who I got close with - close enough to talk about “tough and awkward” topics like our natural menstruation. We often spoke about menstrual hygiene, and at one point they asked if I had any extra period products. Since I was using my cup, I didn't need to bring heaps of stuff to get by... so I had nothing to give. I asked what they were using, and with shame they dropped their head and named some of the things that they reached for out of pure urgency (old rags, leaves, dried poo!! and even their own clothing). 


I felt their pain, shame, confusion, and even sadness in that moment. I thought to myself, “I had to work so hard to make peace with my period - and I had everything I needed and wanted to manage it.” It broke me to sit there with those women with nothing to give but an ear to listen and heart that really cared. At that moment, I knew I wanted to do more. I knew I had a solution - but at the time, on the other side of the world, I wasn't quite sure how I was going to do it. 


After my trip, I continued to nurse people (and myself), but I couldn't help to think about those women in the Philippines and other countries I had visited. I realized that no matter if we have the products we need (or not) there is a common denominator we all face that some women are able to jump over, and aren’t: shame. Women of all sorts started to open up to me about the wild things they have thought about or done to manage their period: all in the name of shame. I talked with my patients and they shared their stories: most shared similarities of missed school days, childhood confusion and overall lack of understanding of their body. 


I knew there was a problem I had found that needed to be solved and that I already had a solution. So, I got up and brushed myself off, found another job, continued to save for my next venture, and started to work on a journey that I was a little nervous to embark on. Almost one year later, in May 2021, Divine Drops was officially launched! I’ve built a team of fearless bleeding women who have a big heart for people, purpose and have an understanding that we have two hands for a reason. Buckle up and smile big...because you are now a part of this team and will forever be a fearless, powerful, divine bLeader. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your care, support and anything else you do to uplift women and change the cycle everyday. 


Thank you, from the bottom of my heart!
