Pause Library

A place to share & learn.

Knowledge is power, and in our journey to create Pause, our functional fragrance to support hormonal wellbeing, we were saddened by the lack of conversation around Perimenopause. Many women encounter this overwhelming hormonal passage  towards Menopause with no real clarity around what’s happening to them. Regardless of whether Perimenopause is imminent or a decade away, improving our hormone literacy now will leave us all better served to navigate this chapter of life. The resources below have been curated by our incredible Abel team – a network of global women of varying ages and life stages.

Some of the best bite-sized while incredibly informative reading can be found in the articles below. A great place to start.
