What is Seed Cycling?

Seed cycling a.k.a. seed rotation is a completely safe, easy, and natural method for synchronizing and balancing your hormones, regulating your menstrual cycles, relieving PMS symptoms, increasing fertility, easing PCOS symptoms & more all through the use of powerful phytoestrogens, fatty acids, and nutrients in various seeds. Different seeds correspond for each of the two main phases of our menstruation cycles. These two cycles are the Follicular Phase and the Luteal Phase . When your hormones are well balanced, you will generally run on a 28-day cycle (just like the moon!).

The Follicular Phase:

The follicular phase is day 1-14 of your cycle. It begins on the first day of your period and ends when you begin ovulating. If you’re also syncing with the moon, this would be from the new to full moon.

During the follicular phase, estrogen levels rise to prepare for implantation.

Seeds that correspond to the follicular phase: pumpkin seeds + flax seeds . These seeds contain estrogen-promoting properties.

For the Follicular Phase Moon Milk we incorporate oats and lavender which both help with promoting and balancing estrogen levels.

The Luteal Phase:

The luteal phase is day 15-28 of your cycle. It begins when you start ovulating and ends when you start your next period. If you’re also syncing with the moon, this would be from the full to new moon.

During the luteal phase progesterone levels rise.

Seeds that correspond to the luteal phase: sunflower seeds + sesame seeds. These seeds contain high levels of vitamin E and zinc which both promote progesterone production.

For the Luteal Phase Moon Milk we incorporate rose petals which contain vitamin C, a precursor to progesterone production. Rose also has extra soothing properties – perfect for PMS!

What is Moon Milk?

Moon milk is a delicious and comforting nighttime beverage that has its roots in ancient Ayurvedic traditions. Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word that translates to ‘knowledge of life’. It is an ancient Vedic holistic health science with emphasis on the mind-body-spirit connection. In Ayurveda, warm milk consumed before bed is a common remedy for sleeplessness, anxiety and insomnia. Moon milk can be the simplest concoction of milk and honey or more complex such as those with a variety of spices, fruit or even adaptogens and herbs.

Tips for making Seed Cycling Moon Milk for Hormone Health:

  • To ensure the best texture and optimum absorption of benefits, be certain to not skip the soaking step of this recipe.

  • In order to obtain the best results on your seed cycling journey, I highly recommend using high-quality organic ingredients such as those recommended in this post. Non-organic ingredients can contain chemicals and contaminants that can negate the positive effects you are trying to achieve.

  • If you only have salted seeds on hand, you can use them. Just be certain to omit the additional salt listed in the recipe.

  • I find almond milk to be most complementary to the other flavors in these moon milks, but using any dairy or non-dairy milk will work perfectly fine, too.

  • I wrote this recipe with cardamom and cinnamon notes, but this is a versatile base recipe and you can certainly play around with other warming spices such as nutmeg, cloves and turmeric to find your ideal cup of moon milk.

  • Why coconut oil? Coconut oil helps with the absorption of vitamins and nutrients AND, is hormone balancing unto itself. Coconut oil is rich in fatty acids which aid in the creation and elimination of hormones such as estrogen and progesterone which in turn leads to hormone balance.

  • Are you on a sugar-free or keto diet? You can omit the maple syrup / honey or you can replace it with a sugar-free sweetener such as this one.

  • 45 minutes is the minimum soaking time, but you can also soak the ingredients for up to 8 hours, or overnight.

  • Don’t want to soak seeds? I’ve also used 1 tablespoon of seed butter instead of 2 tablespoons of soaked seeds with excellent results!

  • For an extra creamy and frothy moon milk, use a milk frother such as this one.

      Hi, Ashley – You can store it ahead of time, but it tastes best if you are able to blend it again prior to heating or use a milk frother or immersion blender while heating it up!

    Why don’t you use sesame seeds as well as sunflower seeds? Thanks.

      Hi, Claudia – I do not use sesame seeds simply because after testing these recipes numerous times, I found sunflower seeds to offer a better flavor. However, towards the top of the post I do mention that sesame seeds can be used for the luteal phase as well. You can add sesame, sunflower or a blend of both if you prefer!

    Does this have any value for post-menopausal women?

      Hi JJ,

      That’s a good question! I’m a big believer that seed cycling can only help with menopause! Though, looking at studies specifically on menopause, I would recommend using flax seeds instead of pumpkin during the first two weeks, and sesame seeds instead of sunflower during the second two weeks for the best effect! I hope this helps.

      Warmly,
      Kristen

    If you want to skip the soaking part by using a seed butter instead of whole seeds, can you go straight to the heating part? I don’t have a food processor. Can you use a drop of lavender oil instead of buds?

      Hi Ashlea,

      If you would rather use seed butter and omit the lavender buds, then yes, you can skip to the heating stage. You just want to make sure you whisk the seed butter in good while it’s heating. As for the lavender oil, it will work well, but I would advise only using an organic food-grade lavender oil! I hope this helps! 🙂
