(and our most common questions)
Prepare hot water as you would for tea.
Gather the stool, the herbal steam blend, a heat safe bowl, and a towel or blanket.
Create a sacred, quiet space in your home. Free of distraction if possible.
Every woman is unique so trust yourself on however you feel called to create your sacred space.
SET THE SPACE
BEGIN THE STEAM
Combine your chosen Yoni Steaming herbs and approximately 4 cups of the hot water in the heat safe bowl and place the bowl underneath the stool opening. (Some women prefer to elevate the bowl closer to the opening of the stool.)
Squat down onto the stool and wrap the towel or blanket around yourself and the stool.
If you find the steam too hot, wait a few minutes for the steam to reduce. You can also open the towel slightly to release steam to your comfort level.
The length of steam varies woman to woman.
For women with cycle lengths shorter than 28 days and with excess heat issues (hot flashes, night-sweats or infections) steaming for 10 minutes is recommended.
Women with regular cycle lengths or amenhorrhea (absense of menses) will benefit from steam sessions 30 minutes in length.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I STEAM?
Steaming is recommending both before and after menses, but not during as to not disrupt the natural process of downflow bleeding. For best results, steam 1-3x before and after your menses.
WHAT TIME OF DAY IS BEST TO STEAM?
Since yoni steaming is a relaxing, yet detoxifying process, the ritual may cause you to be tired afterward. Nighttime, before bed, would be the best time to steam.
CAN I STEAM WHILE PREGNANT?
Steaming is NOT recommended during pregnancy, but is an excellent ritual for improving postpartum healing. Please read this study showing the amazing benefits of postpartum steaming for accelerated recovery.
CAN I USE ESSENTIAL OILS?
Essential oils are NOT recommended as they are concentrated volatile oils that can cause damage to sensitive tissues in large amounts. By using whole, organic herbs, the appropriate amount of naturally occurring volatile oils carries the perfect amount of volatile oil that WILL travel via steam into the bloodstream of the vaginal area. Using organic herbs suitable for vaginal hydrotherapy helps to enhance the overall effectiveness of the steam by delivering healing plant chemicals into the bloodstream.
