Yoni Steaming for Menstrual Health

Luminae Wellness Oils.jpg

Vaginal steaming, commonly known as yoni steam, is a traditional healing practice that can be traced back to many cultures throughout the world. Steaming is a direct and gentle way to deliver herbal medicine to the reproductive area and heal the body.

Physically vaginal steaming helps to cleanse the uterine lining, nourish vaginal tissue, improve circulation, warm the uterus, and balance pH levels. It can address menstrual cycle irregularities, short or long cycles, scant or heavy bleeding, cramps, fertility, cysts, fibroids, endometriosis, yeast and bacteria infections, vaginal dryness, uterine prolapse, scars and tears, and tone the reproductive system after birth.

Energetically vaginal steaming helps to release stored emotions, clear imprints from past lovers, and heal trauma especially related to relationships, sex, power, and creativity. Steaming is a way to connect to the womb as a sacred center and channel the powerful energy of the feminine body.

Luminae Yoni Steam Herbs are handcrafted with all organic herbs to support a smooth menstrual cycle, reproductive health, womb wellness, and feminine empowerment. Blends feature herbs like mugwort, yarrow, motherwort, calendula, rosemary, lavender, white sage, and rose petals.

How to steam: Bring a pot of water to boil and add the herbs. Keep the lid on the pot and simmer the herbs for 10 minutes. Remove the pot from heat and let the pot cool for 5 minutes. You can steam in several ways: 1) sitting on a yoni steam stool with the pot under the stool; 2) cushion the ground with towels, sit on your knees with your pelvis hovering over the pot and arms placed in front to stabilize your body; or 3) bring two chairs side by side, put the pot in between, sit over the pot. Drape a big sheet or towel around you to contain the heat. Steam is hot! Be careful to not burn yourself. Steam for 15-30 minutes. Contraindications to steaming include having an IUD, during full flow of menstrual bleeding, or after ovulation if you are trying to conceive.

If you are recently postpartum or have specific health concerns, custom herbal steam blends are beneficial. Make an appointment for an Acupuncture Wellness Session to get support for your menstrual cycle and reproductive health!
