Review: Crabby Pants

      Review: Crabby Pants
I saw this product as a sneak peek for Rose War Panty Power subscription box for June. I was excited to try this new product since I’ve had horrible cramps since I started my cycle at 12 years old! For many women, tackling period cramps starts with a series of pain relievers for body pains, hot teas, and heating pads-ugh. The idea of tackling cramps with an all-natural solution that I could apply directly to the problem area made me overjoyed. I impatiently waited for my June box to arrive, then the marvelous package showed up. The June box came with many goodies, but I wanted to test out the Crabby Pants product.
  The ‘Crabby Pants’ is a body oil that is made with five essential oils: lavender, ylang-ylang, clary sage, jasmine and rose. The five oils are blended into jojoba oils, which makes the skin soft and easier to absorb into the skin. The smell of ‘Crabby Pants’ has a slightly overpowering smell that reminds me of a floral garden. The product came in a 1 oz small, brown bottle with a dropper-style top. I applied 6 or 7 drops to my lower belly and massaged for a few minutes, then closed my eyes. I felt the cramps ease in 5 minutes, then did not feel any pain after 10 minutes.  
                                                 Score Card:
 Smell:  8/10 - I love a nice floral smell, but not everyone may enjoy it.
Feel: 10/10 – The Jojoba oil made my abdomen feel soft and moisturized, the oil absorbed quickly into the skin and did not have a gunky feeling on my skin.
Promise Execution: 10/10- The product worked faster than any pain reliever I’ve ever consumed.
Packaging:  10/10- The small, brown, bottle with the dropper-style top was the best packaging option for this product. The label on the bottle is very subtle with graphics with font style that is easy to read.


  1. I wish they had this when I was young. Menstrual cramps were hell for me too.
    This may help lots of women for sure. Thanks again for sharing.

The Wrap: The Beauty of Black Culture

I am completely in love with head wraps! I l love to see black women wearing head wraps of different colors, patterns, and worn in different styles. I was first introduced to the head wrap culture in 2004 , when I was a freshman at Savannah State University; one of my friends use to take one of her t-shirts and wrap it in a way that created a ‘bun’ in the back. I started making the ‘bun wrap’ a part of my ‘relax style’ by using a white t-shirt, I would sport it while walking around campus or to my grandmother’s house. I stopped wearing the ‘bun wrap’ when my family told me it was not ‘appropriate’, but I still kept an eye out for women wearing head wraps in beautiful ways.

 I loved to see women like Erykah Badu, India Ari, and Lauryn Hill wear their head wraps proudly in their music videos, concerts, and televised interviews. I really felt that seeing these images on television helped women and girls embrace that style or proudly showcase their African roots. I began to get back into e…

The Death of Black Mothers: A Deadly Epidemic

  In America, the concerns and pains of black women are ignored.  The history of black women’s pain being ignored can be traced back to slavery; in that span of 400 years, black women were used as sexual chattel and became the first (unwilling) patients of gynecology. The experimental reproductive surgeries being conducted on enslaved black women are documented, the most well-known case was from J. Marion Simmons- the ‘father of gynecology’. In his autobiography, he notes that the experimental surgeries he conducted on enslaved black women, in the 1840s, were done without any anesthesia and were extremely painful-to the point of death.
The absurd assumption that black women could withstand more pain than white women, led many physicians to believe that black women should receive little-to-no pain relief when complaining about pain.

Let’s fast forward to 2018, we can see that this sentiment has not been extinguished-but kept alive. The same assumption of black women has caused an epidemi…
