About Vaginal Steaming:
Herbal steaming is a tradition that has been passed down through many generations and is used in many cultures around the world. Vaginal steams naturally warm and hydrate your vagina. Each herbal blend can offer many other benefits and has been used as a treatment option for infertility, PMS, cysts, endometriosis, irregular menstruation, infections, sores, postpartum symptoms, menopause, and grief. As a ritual, steaming helps bring focus to self. It can be a meditation on the moon cycle, bringing love and attention to the womb and vagina.
If you LOVE steaming, there are many options online for steaming seats and kits. Personally, I use a bowl just big enough to fit in the toilet and close the lid for a comfortable seat. Add the herbs to boiling water in the bowl of your choosing and allow the herbs to steep while the steam reaches a comfortable temperature. You can steam your yoni for 15 to 30 minutes. Enjoy this relaxing time, wrapped in a blanket with candles, a book, or some relaxing music. You do not want to steam while on your menstrual cycle, while pregnant, or if you have an IUD.
