Yoni Steams have been around for centuries and are especially beneficial and appreciated by women who experience the following feminine ailments: uterine fibroids, painful menstruation, uterine weakness, uterine prolapse, irregular menstrual cycles, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, reproductive adhesion/scar tissue, previous vaginal tear or episiotomy, and dark purple or brown blood at the onset or end of menses.
Yoni Steam baths bring heat to the womb. The use of specific herbs adds layers of different healing benefits, depending on the fertility-related health condition being treated. Different herbs have different healing actions. Typically more than one herb was chosen and formulated in a blend, specific to the woman’s unique fertility needs. The combination of herbs work to nourish, tone, heal, bring in fresh oxygenated blood, promote cleansing, and make supple the vaginal and uterine tissues. The moist heat opens the pores of the tissues it comes into contact with. The water vapor carries the medicinal benefits of the plants, including volatile oils. This is absorbed into the tissues and enters the bloodstream, having a direct healing effect on the reproductive system. Vaginal tissue is one of the most absorbent of the entire female body.
Our Organic Rejuvenating Yoni Steam is handmade to order and is made of only the best organic botanicals such as:
Rosemary: Increases circulation to the reproductive organs, aids in clearing out of old fluids, is also antiseptic and purifying.
Lavender: One of the most relaxing herbs, calms the mind and body. Nourishing to the nervous system. Lavender is antiseptic to the vaginal tissues. It is also an antispasmodic, aiding in healthy uterine function.
Comfrey: An anti-inflammatory that speeds wound healing due to its natural concentration of allantoin
Marshmallow Root: contains flavanoids, which contain anti-inflammatory properties. The flavanoids are able to reduce inflammation while the mucilage holds them in place and prevents further damage. The extracts also induce phagocytosis, which is the process in which certain cells engulf bacteria, dead cell tissues or other solid particles. This helps speed up the healing process
Calendula: Calendula flower is used to prevent muscle spasms, start menstrual periods, and reduce fever. It is also used for treating sore throat and mouth, menstrual cramps, cancer, and stomach and duodenal ulcers.
Chamomile: reduces swelling, fights bacteria, and soothes menstrual cramps.
Rose petals: Rose petals are gentle and astringent to tissues of the genitals. Rose is a relaxing and uplifting herb
Uva Ursi soothes, strengthens, and tightens irritated and inflamed tissues. The herb neutralizes acidity in the urine, increasing urine flow, therefore reducing bloating and water retention, making it beneficial for weight loss.
The purpose of our Organic Rejuvenating Yoni Steam is to aid as an internal cleanser of the membranes of the vaginal tissues and the uterus. This is considered especially important for stagnant fertility conditions, and/or incomplete emptying of menses each cycle. Signs of this are PMS, cramps during your period, brown blood/dark blood/purple blood during menstruation, blood clotting during menstruation, endometriosis, PCOS, absence of menstruation, long cycles (longer than normal), or bleeding less than 4 days per cycle.
WHEN TO STEAM…
•For preventative care – 1 week before the 1st day of bleeding.
•For cysts, prolapse, pelvic pain, fibroids, endometriosis– 2 – 4 x a week
•After a DNC or miscarriage – wait 3 weeks; make sure there is no infection prior to steaming.
•Post delivery, wait 6-8 weeks, making sure you are not bleeding and there is no infection.
WHAT TO EXPECT…
•You should expect changes in vaginal discharge, and a shift in your menstrual blood, duration of cycle and onset can shift as well. These are normal cleansing reactions and a good sign that your womb is cleansing.
•Place 4 oz of dry herbs in a pot of lukewarm water.
•If possible, let sit in the moon light overnight, imbuing the water and plants with the moonlight, with your prayers and allowing the water and plants to absorb each other.
•The following day, bring to a gentle simmer with the lid on for 20 minutes.
•Set up your steam space; turn off your phone, put music on if you’d like, or grab your favorite book, light candles, or make a cup of tea to enjoy while you are steaming.
•Once you are set up pour your steam water into a different pot as to avoid burning the floor.
•Place your steam pot under a slotted chair, step stool with slot, lawn chair or steam stool.
•Remove your clothes from the waist down, leaving your socks on, keeping your upper body warm.
•Sit on your designated seat over the steaming herbs making sure the steam pot is placed underneath the body so the steam gets to the perineum.
•Drape your lower body with blankets that extend all the way to the floor to ensure the steam is contained.
•Be careful not to burn yourself. If necessary, create a small vent to allow excess steam to escape, it should feel pleasant.
•Sit over your steam for about 15-20 min. depending on the temperature.
•Simply enjoy the healing and nurturing time you have set aside for yourself.
•When you are done, dry yourself off.
•Rest quietly after the steam in a warm room, free of drafts, open windows or air conditioning, for at least 20 minutes.
