Yoni Steaming I S a supreme treatment for your Womb Temple & Your Divine Feminine Spirit
Yoni steam baths, V-Steams or Vaginal Steam Baths, are an old respected treatment for women used by Maya midwives and healers. Bajos, as they are known in Central America, are used to assist in the cleansing, and nourishing of the uterus in conjunction with the Maya womb therapy for the treatment of numerous female symptoms.
They are also great preventative care. This remedy is by far one of the best treatments for facilitating the healing of the pelvic region and allows one to call in deep connection and love to their whole reproductive sanctuary.
You sit over a pot of warm steaming herbs. The steam is naturally expansive and rises up and into the pelvic bowl, bringing a most sacred sensation of healing. While you sit over this warm herbal steaming bath, you are called into clearing your body, womb, and soul. Every woman must have this honor of rest and connection. You are warmed to the core from the depths of your being, deeper than your bones. The center of your womb is enlivened again.
There is nothing quite like resting your pelvis, yoni, and womb over a warm bowl of steaming herbal medicine. Let the steam do its magic, and allow the healing to begin. Rest your goddess body and receive the most precious gift of warmth.
WHY ARE THE STEAMS DONE
The purpose is to relax spasms in the pelvic bowl, introduce warmth and aromatic herbal steam, thereby increasing circulation, nourishing internal membranes and promoting healing. The steams also acts as a uterine lavage, or internal cleanse of the membranes that often accumulate incompletely flushed debris/fluids from cycle to cycle. The steams are a powerful compliment to womb massage. Together, they can help painful or irregular periods, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, endometriosis and uterine prolapse.
WHAT HERBS ARE USED
Commonly used plants for the steam baths are oregano, lavender, calendula, red roses, & mugwot. Many other plants can be used such as chamomile, cramp bark, black cohosh, dandelion, motherwort, and damiana. Herbs may be either fresh or dried. You may use one or any combination of these herbs.

Lavender: Antispasmatic, sedative, promotes deep restful sleep. A relaxing herb that brings calmness to the mind and the body. Lavender is antiseptic to the vaginal tissues.

HOW TO HAVE A STEAM AT HOME
Add 1 large handful of herbs to a small pot of boiling water. Bring to a boil and then remove from heat. Let steep for 10 minutes.
You will need to set up a way for you to sit over the pot of steaming herbs. One way is to use an open-slatted chair and place the pot on the floor below you. The other is to pour the herbs into a large rimmed stainless steel bowl that can sit inside your toilet, resting on the edge underneath the seat. Remove your clothes from the waist down, including underwear, leaving on warm socks or slippers. Sit on the chair or toilet over the steaming herbs and wrap yourself with a blanket from the waist down. Make sure your upper body is also warm. If the steam is too hot, let cool for a few minutes. It should feel comfortable. Relax over the steam for 20 minutes, reading, journaling or meditating. BE CAREFUL NOT TO BURN YOURSELF. TEST THE STEAM BEFORE SITTING DOWN!
YOU MUST KEEP WARM AFTER YONI STEAM! It is ideal to do this before bed, wrapping yourself up warmly, if you are doing it at another time of day, an hour wrapped up warmly, in bed afterwards will maximize the healing effect of the steam. Avoid any chills or drafts for the next 24 hours if possible.
