So how does exactly a Vaginal Steam work?
In case you know how nasal or facial steam is performed then you will know how to perform a vaginal steam too. Of course, this time you will have to use steam that comes from a pot or bowl with hot boiled water and herbs in a position that will reach the vaginal lips in the best way. The soft tissues found in the vagina have high absorption properties and the steam that comes from the bowl will make the ingredients reach the system fast.
Once the herbs are placed in the boiled water, all of their health properties will be released through the steam, into the vagina and ultimately in the bloodstream and the uterus. What is great about this vaginal steam is the fact that the results are visible quickly.
How to perform a Vaginal Steam?
One of the best parts about vaginal steam is that it is really easy to do one at your home. Place one cup of dry herbs known for their beneficial properties for the vagina in a pot of hot water. Lay down or site somewhere where you won’t be disrupted, place the pot near your intimate area and wait for 30 to 40 minutes. This procedure can be performed in several ways.
The first one is really practical. You can use a metal bowl with the mixture, place it inside your toilet bowl, and sit on the toilet bowl. You can also sit on two chairs placed separately and leave a small space that will help the steam reach the vagina. You can also find specially designed steaming stool. No matter which procedure you choose, make sure that the water is not very hot in order to avoid skin damage.
It is good to mention that this is a period where you will feel very relaxed, so you can spend this time reading a book or simply meditate. Remember to use warm blankets on your body during and after the process is finished and it is best to use a warm bed during the night. The reason is simple – the herbs will continue to bring positive effects in your system during the night too and the heat will improve this process.
The positive effects are visible almost immediately. Women who have used this method experience increased energy levels, limited bloating, reduced cramps etc.
There are a huge number of herbs that can be used in the process of vaginal steaming, but since some of them can affect pregnant women, it is best to seek for advice from your physician or naturopath and make some online research.
Although the herbs that we usually use in the kitchen can be quite helpful for vaginal steaming, there are certain herbs that are not very common that work the best. Some of the most popular and most effective herbs used for vaginal steaming are yarrow, motherwort, mugwort, partridgeberry and lavender. They can be used as a mixture or you can create a solution by using only one herb.
