What is Vaginal Steaming?
Vaginal Steaming, also known as V-steaming or Yoni steaming, is a practice used to treat a variety of ailments- infections, infertility, menopausal, painful and irregular menstrual cycles etc. Yoni steaming involves sitting over a steaming pot of water that contains added herbs such as, mugwort, rosemary, and basil. The warmth of the steam is supposed to soften and open the pores of the vaginal and vulvar skin so that the herbs can be absorbed into the skin and uterus and impart medicinal effects.
Why is Vaginal Steaming important?
Vaginal Steaming offers many health benefits, mainly alleviating unwanted symptoms associated with periods such as bloating, exhaustion, cramps, heavy menstrual flow and irregular periods. This practice will help nourish the womb, get rid of viruses and diseases, provide a fresh feeling, and regulate periods and make them healthy. I believe v steaming is a part of our heritage and it is a self-heal/self-empowerment for women of all ages.
