Yoni steaming, also known as vaginal steaming or v-steam, is a sacred self-care practice that has been used by women for centuries to heal and tone the vagina. By applying gentle heat and moisture, herbal steam permeates the external vagina and carries medicinal plant properties to the tissues, increasing circulation. The plant medicines are absorbed into the bloodstream and circulated into the reproductive system where they help to stimulate healing.
This powerful ritual helps nourish the vagina while healing and restoring divine femininity. Steaming helps improve stagnation and cleanses old residue in the vaginal canal and womb space. If blood from the previous menstrual cycle has not been properly cleared, the body identifies it as a foreign substance. This activates muscles in the abdomen to attempt to push it out of the body. This muscle contracting action often results in painful cramps. Doing vaginal steams assists the body with cleansing and improves circulation, which enhances the body's own healing mechanisms. On an emotional level, steaming activates a connection to femininity and is a powerful act of self-love.
For many women, this is a self-care practice that can be done 1-2 x per month (though never during your period or ovulation) unless there are deeper issues you are working on healing, such as infertility and hormone-related imbalances. In these cases, and postpartum, It's best to work with or consult a practitioner for support or work with your midwife or doula. There are also many (Korean) spas offering v-steam that can prepare a unique blend for your specific needs and body. Many offer the combination of v-steam and womb massage, which when combined, work to clear stagnation and promote circulation to the area.
The Benefits of Yoni Steaming
There are several benefits to the sacred practice of yoni steaming, varying from emotional and spiritual healing to physical cleansing. Different women steam for different reasons. It's essential that you know what you are doing, what herbs you are using & why, and that you don't over steam. The frequency of yoni-steaming rituals varies from woman to woman; pay attention to your body's signals and find a pattern that works for you.
A healthy period is generally 3-4 days of moderate bright red blood flow without clots.
Doing vaginal steams 1x the week before your period and 1x the week after your period can assist in relieving menstrual pain & reducing brown blood, thereby balancing menstrual issues over time.
The importance of proper circulation and full clearance of each menstrual cycle is especially important in achieving optimal fertility. If there's a build-up of past menses, tissues, cysts, etc., then there's a chance that a fertilized egg will be unable to complete the implantation process. Yoni-steaming supports proper blood flow to the pelvic area and therefore helps prepare the womb for a possible pregnancy.
*never steam when pregnant or if you think you might be!
Yoni steaming has been utilized as a standard postpartum ritual for women around the world. This is often done under the care and advice of a midwife to promote healing from the birthing process and support postpartum recovery. In addition to physical healing of the delicate tissue, the new mom also benefits from emotional and spiritual healing as she lovingly takes care of her womb that has just brought a beautiful new life into the world.
