Vaginal Steaming - An Organic, Herbal and Gentle Approach to Womb Care.

Since the dawn of humanity there have always been healers in every community that possessed extensive knowledge of plants and their natural healing abilities. Traditional healers, herbalist, shamans, and medicine women spent countless hours formulating and experimenting with ways to use plants to heal their communities. Wise women used steams for centuries to cleanse the women's center - her entire reproductive system.

They also taught the importance of using plants to maintain vitality, today known as self-care and preventative health.

So, what is vaginal steaming?

Steaming is an organic and gentle approach to feminine care, especially our reproductive wellness. Vaginal Steaming is the practice of sitting over a steaming pot of water that is infused with loving herbs. The combination of plants and heat therapy facilitates a therapeutic process - balancing, cleansing and healing.

What does a Vaginal Steam feel like?

Imagine a personal sauna for your vagina, for your womb - have a seat and receive the relaxing and healing benefits of a vaginal facial with medicinal intent. The effect is WOWZERS, it really is heaven.

What are the benefits of Vaginal Steaming?

For the woman, our vaginal tissue is one of the most absorbent, making steams extremely effective. Here is an extensive list for reasons to consider steaming.

  • Self Care, Spa & Pampering
  • Overall Womb Cleansing 
  • Alternative to Douching
  • Dark Blood, Clotting During & After Menses
  • Absent or Heavy Periods

Steaming is also recommended if you are not experiencing any of the above, as it is a great way to soothe and pamper yourself. Steaming is a great grounding and centering ritual to relieve anxious energy.

What does a vaginal steam do?

Steaming physically and emotionally declutters our womb, while restoring and reconnecting us to our body.

How does a vaginal steam work?

Steaming works similar to the way a steam room is used to draw toxins out of the body via the skin, or an nasal steam bath is used to clear congestion from your nasal passages when you have a cold.

Likewise, vaginal steaming draws out toxins and clears congestion in the womb.

It's important to note that the focus of steaming is not on our vagina alone, but our entire reproductive system. This includes the vagina (external gateway), the cervix, the uterus, the fallopian tubes and the ovaries. This is key to note, as our vagina acts as a canal, a passageway into our wombs.

It works like this

After our plant friends release their cleansing and healing oils into hot water, they are carried via steam to the porous skin of the outer labia, where they are absorbed. From there, the restorative properties of the plants are carried through the bloodstream into the uterus - there they help to dislodge stuck material that causes discomfort.

How does steaming supports our emotional body?

As science is now finding out, our emotional state determines our physical health. Our womb is where we carry emotions around anger, resentment, inability to forgive and let go of past traumas. It is also where we carry creativity, self-expression, ability to manifest abundance and most importantly the magic of our life giving, compassionate, orgasmic, passionate and sensual feminine essence.

Steaming supports the release of past trauma to welcome in the new seeds we wish to grow.

When should I NOT steam?

A woman should NOT steam during menstruation (you may steam before & after your cycle), if you have ANY IUD, open wounds, sores or blisters, do not steam if pregnant or expected pregnancy. If you have genital piercings, take them out, the heat will cause the piercing to burn you.

What benefits should I expect from steaming?

Each time we steam we are creating a permanent shift in our wellness - we can never go backwards, so reward yourself with positive affirmations each time you make the time to treat yourself to a steam.

Imagine your steam is like taking a vitamin supplement. One time is great to supply you with the nutrients you need for the day, yet, you only truly experience lasting results with a consistent practice, especially when remedying serious imbalances.

Give your body time my love, give yourself time. We didn't get here over night, so be gentle with yourself.

How Often To Steam?

The frequency in which a woman steams is based on the reason "why" she's steaming and her own intuition. I recommend steaming at least once a month my love. Remember, the foods we choose to consume also has a lot to do with how our bodies feel. When we eat clean, we feel clean.

But here is an overall guideline or "rule of thumb":

  • For preventative care, 1 week before the first day of bleeding
  • For ovarian cyst, prolapse, pelvic pain, fibroids, endometriosis, 2 - 4 times a week 
  • After miscarriage, wait 3 weeks - make sure there is no infection prior to steaming.
  • After delivery, wait 6-8 weeks, making sure you are not bleeding and there is no infection.
  • OVERALL 2-3 TIME A MONTH FOR A HEALTHY WOMBMAN

Every woman has a different body and will experience different results. Some women experience radical shifts in their menses or symptoms after their first steam. For others, it takes time and dedication to achieve desired results. Many women will receive their menstrual cycles a few day early after the first time they steam. Some experience increased feeling in their womb space, from cramping to heaviness. This is a result of the herbs supporting your body to contract and release old blood and tissue; something that your body may have been storing from YEARS of incomplete bleeding. Do not be surprised if/when you experience dark blood, heavier bleeding and/or clotting. This is your body being fully cleared out, for perhaps the first time in your life. So sit back, relax and go with it. As you continue your steam ritual, your cycle and womb will be more pleasant.
