Why is ecocobox closing down?

Maisie Hill Period Power

Hi guys,

It's Emma here, Founder of ecocobox. For those of you who are curious about why I've decided to close the business, I thought I'd just write this quick note.

I've been working on ecocobox for about 3 years, and trading for 2 and a half. It has been a really exciting journey, and I have loved working with some great brands and receiving so much positive feedback. But like so many of us, I had some time to reflect over the last 18 months, and I've decided that it is time for a new challenge.
I want to say a huge thank you to my family for supporting me, Nat for doing my social media and Tamazi Fulfillment for packing all those boxes! And to everyone who supported my small business, I'm sending a massive virtual hug to you all. It's true that when you buy from a small businesses, someone does a little happy dance!

If you can support me one last time by grabbing something from our Closing Down Sale, that'd be truly appreciated... and you get a lovely bargain too!

Sending love and positive vibes to you all.

So here’s the rub; oestrogen makes us women much more relaxed and easygoing during the fertile half of our cycle so that we will attract a mate. Yep, biology thought of everything! This time of amenability is basically from after your period until ovulation (and maybe a few days beyond if you’re lucky). But then oestrogen dips and all that stuff we suppressed during the easygoing phase sort of bubbles up.

A lot of women experience a dip just after, or a few days after ovulation, and then again before their period. This leads to two or three particularly sensitive days across the monthly cycle where we are much more prone to be irritable - to feel those niggles that we’d brush off in our easygoing phase, and to suddenly want to act. When you think about it, it’s pretty cool - we are literally biologically programmed to have a voice.

Maisie suggests tracking your cycle which, in its simplest form involves

  • recording how you feel each day
  • logging your period
  • tracking your BBT (Basal Body Temperature) daily so that you can see when you are ovulating. 

Once you do this for a few months, you should start to see your own personal hormone (and emotional) pattern emerging. This allows you to anticipate and plan for the harder days. Sharing this information with your partner will no doubt help reduce the friction too.
