Yoni steaming or V-Steaming is a gentle and effective way to cleanse the womb of any stagnation, build-up of old blood and treat many issues dealing with menstruation, menopause and fertility. The healing steam and oils from the herbs will aid your body in clearing old uterine membranes and restoring vaginal pH.
The moist heat from the steam bath supports and softens the womb and the surrounding tissues, increasing blood flow in the pelvic area promoting the uterus to rid old blood. Steams can assist in healing a wide variety of gynecological issues and used in postpartum recovery.
These blends of organic and medicinal herbs are known to assist with menstrual discomfort and disorders, improve and increase fertility, treat uterine fibroids, cysts, prolapse, endometriosis, and hemorrhoids, chronic yeast infection, relieve menopause symptoms, rid body of toxins and relieve stress.
How do yoni steams work?
The steams work by applying moist heat to the pelvic floor, which heals the exterior tissues of the vagina as well as throughout the entire body via the blood stream. Our herbal steams increase circulation, thin mucus and revitalizes the entire system, allowing it to shed old membrane and mucus build-up. Steaming supports the womb to return to her harmonic physical and emotional alignment. When herbs are heated in water, the healing oils that contain medicinal properties are then released.

- NORMAL CYCLES: For those who have normal, pain free cycles, a “maintenance” vaginal steam be done once every three months before your period is recommended. If you prefer, you may steam two to three times per month, always during weeks in which you are not menstruating as part of you self care routine. At least ten (10) days before your cycle.
- MENSTRUAL DISORDERS: Women who suffer from pain, bloating or exhaustion during menstruation can steam every other day within the week or two before menstruation. You may also steam once at least 3 days after your cycle ends.

If you are postmenopausal, you should steam at least three times per year for maintenance or more often if it preferred. Yoni steaming can be done up to 3 times per week.
