Yoni Steaming

Yoni steaming is an ancient medicine that has healed generations and continues to nourish thousands of women around the world. A powerful remedy to a women's well-being. Yoni steaming is a chance to reconnect with your goddess self. As a woman, your creative center is in your yoni — your vagina and womb — it is a powerful force in the world. Yoni (vagina) steaming is a forgotten ancient ritual but very common in South America, Africa and throughout Asia.

Yoni Steaming is a holistic approach to wellness that includes natural therapies/ organic herbs as an important milestone. Our organic and wild-crafted herbs, flower buds and leaves are boiled and steamed for detoxification. The steam from the herbs are then absorbed into the vagina, vulva, perineum, and womb area. It also touches the lower large intestine. 

The herbs contain natural antibiotics and anti-fungal agents which help to maintain internal health while at the same time nourishing, revitalizing and restoring from within.

Why Does Yoni Steaming Work

Yoni steam is an exclusive, seated steam treatment. The moist heat will open and enter the pores of your tissue, carrying the medicinal properties and plant oils into your vagina and uterus. As your vagina soaks up the steam, it will enter the bloodstream, providing direct healing to your reproductive system.

Additionally, the mixture of steam, plants and oils penetrates into your cervix and uterus to remove hard accumulated menstrual fluids and toxins that have been expunged by menstruation. 

  • Heat increases circulation which improves uterine functions.

  • Uterine cleanse.

  • Tightens and lifts the Yoni.

  • Clears phlegm.

  • Deep cleanse skin cells.

  • Corrects the source/root of the problem.

  • Stimulates the meridian point (CV1) responsible for the circuit of QI throughout the body.

  • Herbs get into the bloodstream, also stimulating the cervix- might trigger receptors to the brain that release Oxycontin.
