Yoni steaming, also known as vaginal steaming, is a practice in which a woman allows the warmth of herbal steam to permeate the exterior of her vagina. Respected by healers around the globe, yoni steaming is an opportunity to reconnect with your body and utilize the wisdom of plant medicine to heal your womb.
Yoni steaming uses the support of medicinal plants to break up tissue residue so that it can be easily flushed out of our body with our next cycle. When we steam the herbs in a pot of water, the volatile oils of the plants are released into the water and carried up through the steam into our uterus where they can do their healing work. Our yoni is the most absorbent point of our body. When we bring heat to this sacred space, our blood flow and circulation increases. Our blood can then be empowered to move through stagnant areas and clear out tissue residue within our uterus to create a healthy environment for a baby to grow and be nourished.
A protocol for steaming should be designed for your specific needs and you may need to experiment with the amount of times and the length of time that works for you. A typical case will be 4-8 times per month for 3-6 cycles to show results. You can expect to see an increase in old residue exiting the body during your first menstrual cycle. Each of the cycles following that will become cleaner with fresh red blood.
As with any herbs, supplements or medication, please consult a health care professional about your specific case - especially if you have already begun hormone treatments.
