If you've never heard of it, the words “vaginal steaming” may send a jolt up your spine. But for those who are in the know, this ancient herbal remedy for menstrual cramps, pain, bloating, and more is a gift from the old-world gods. “
Yoni” is a Sanskrit word that means vagina, womb, goddess, and origin of life. Vaginal or yoni steaming, also called chai-yok in Korea and bajo in Central America, has been used by indigenous cultures for centuries.
And many modern women all over the world swear by it. Your doctor probably won't agree with it though but that doesn't mean you shouldn't give it a shot and see how it works for you.
The practice has soared in popularity in the Western world fairly recently but has been used as a traditional medicine in Mayan, Asian, African, and Caribbean cultures for generations. In fact, it is considered as much a part of the Mayan culture as tea is a part of British culture.
Vaginal steaming is used to cleanse and revitalize the vagina and uterus, regulate hormones and the menstrual cycle, and ease the discomfort associated with menstruation. The secret in the steam is the herbal concoction.
The steam makes the genital tissues more receptive to the medical properties of the potent herbs added to the heated water. This tincture can then penetrate the tissues and enter the bloodstream, yoni, and womb where they can really do their work.
The most popular herbs to use in vaginal steaming are mugwort, wormwood, calendula, chamomile, basil and oregano. These and other herbs can be used by themselves or in combination for greater effect. Mugwort, or moxa in particular, is a powerful herb used in Traditional Chinese medicine called moxibustion, where it is burned over a problematic area or pressure point.
There are many purported benefits of vaginal steaming. Along with direct effect on the reproductive system, vaginal steaming is said to relieve stress, fatigue, headaches, general aches and pains, digestive issues and even some symptoms of depression.
But as with any natural and holistic remedy, there are some precautions to take. The vaginal skin is much more sensitive and delicate than skin elsewhere on the body. Your face, for example, would be much more forgiving in a nice steam treatment. So use care when you receive a treatment at a spa or with a home system.
