- Herb mix compiled to provide relief through the release of volatile oils into the air through steam, to be absorbed into the body via the vaginal tissue
- The process is similar to a facial or sinus steam
- Steaming herbs are added to cold water and boiled in a pot or cup, which is then placed so that you can crouch, sit or squat over it
- The practice is supposed to help balance hormones, relieve menstrual cramps, reduce PMS, heal and tone following childbirth
- Rosemary increases circulation in the reproductive organs, clears out old, stagnant fluids, is antiseptic and inhibits the production of yeast
- Oregano helps to induce an absent period or increase a reluctant flow, stimulating and strengthening the uterus; it is also a powerful antiseptic and helps to protect against infection
- Rose petals are gently astringent, relaxing and uplifting, while basil reduces pain during menstruation, and helps to induce an absent period
- Marigold is cleansing, helps to heal wounds, hemorrhoids and scar tissue, reduce inflammation and is a uterine tonic
- Lemon balm helps to soothe menstrual cramps
Did you know? Marigolds are also known in herbal medicine as calendula, and are included in many ointments and tinctures for more than 1000 years.
- Add herbs to cold water and bring to boil for 10 minutes
- This can be placed under a vaginal stool (a stool with a hole in the seat), a slate stool, or on the ground and squatted over
- Wrap a blanket around the waist to form a curtain to the ground, keeping the steam inside
- Remain crouched or sat over the hot water as it releases steam for 15-25 minutes
- It is not recommended to use vaginal steaming during your period or if you are pregnant or suspect that you might be
- Do not add essential oils to the steam, as they are much stronger and more concentrated than the herbs themselves and may cause damage
- Remove any piercings, as the metal can heat up and burn you
- Do not use if you have any infections, sores or open wounds - this is intended as a preventative, curative treatment, not a medical one
- Do not use if you suffer from extremely heavy periods, as many of the herbs help to induce bleeding
- 2 Steam Pack (2 Steams)
- 48g - 70g per 2 Steam Pack, depending on the mix.
- Rosemary, oregano, rose petals, basil, marigold and lemon balm
