Natural Remedy for Period Pain


Over half the world population experiences a menstruation cycle monthly and as a result, can cause severe back pain and cramps. My target market is HSC students that believe in natural remedies and can't like ingesting artificial substances such as pain killers. My product is a discrete and wearable item that can be worn under clothes to prevent missing school and allowing students to learn to the best of their ability without the uncomfortable pain. I need help finding an internal and external material that can hold heat for an extended period of time.

What do you think?

Examples of biodegradable packaging on IdeaSpies

Is someone working on that idea already? Sounds like a great circular economy opportunity!

Deyan Stamatov @ 2021.03.09 2:57 PM
This sounds great, I wonder if you could source some of these things from restaurants.

Olivia Tindall @ 2021.03.09 3:13 PM
This is a great idea and will definitely assist in eliminating food wastage.

There may be something in this idea that's useful

Great idea, what exactly do you need ? Can you provide a list of the ingredients you need ? 'help to source 100% natural ingredients'.  This would greatly assist the communitty in helping you. Thank you

I like the visuals looks very aesthetic

love it ..cant believe we don't do this already perhaps create a link or partnership with boost juice

Madeline Cunningham @ 2021.03.24 6:56 AM
Yes, great idea to get in contact with Boost Juice - they are fantastic!

Sounds amazing! I have recently collaborated with a local juice bar and collected all their orange waste from one day, resulting in 10kg!! I'm now on the search for biodegradable wax!

Awesome idea, Sinead. Maybe you want to reach out to Fern Ho from the Leaf Protein Co. , winner of our last pitch night at Silicon Beach. She might be able to point you in the right direction for some of your questions.

Well done Sinaed - an excellent idea.

We worked with some great ladies in Melbourne who were also looking at changing packaging - they are starting to make edible coffee cups which even if you do not eat them decompose to help the issues of so many takeaway cups ( in Australia 2.4 million a day pre Covid ) going to landfill.

Happy to help you if you decide that crowdfunding may help you get your idea off the ground.

If you do it is always a good idea to start small and gain experience and insights.

Best of luck Jill

Hi everyone, thanks for all your help! My project has moved into a new area where I'm trying to reduce period pain for students studying! I'm trying to make a discrete and wearable item that can possibly be heated up by natural sources e.g. sun, please let me know if you're familiar with anything that could aid my project! Thanks again :)

Interesting change Sinead. You may like to contact the companies behind these two ideas i found when i searched fabric on IdeaSpies:
