I was first introduced to Yoni steaming by a beautiful friend and healer who was supporting me through pregnancy loss and my fertility journey.
I used to steam very simply on the floor with my yoga bolster kneeling over a warm bowl of herbs I had selected intuitively, to cleanse and clear my womb and to re-establish my heart-womb connection, therefore helping me to trust and be open to conceive again.
It was a powerful initiation of womb wisdom and self healing that held and supported me when I lost my 3rd pregnancy at 14.5weeks. I was determined to have a different experience and to birth this baby with the same respect and attention as if I was birthing a full term baby.
Working with a combination of womb massage, my naturopath and yoni steaming I was able to open my womb and birth my tiny baby at home having a drastically different experience from my previous medically managed loss. That was deeply healing for me.
I have used yoni steaming to heal from pregnancy loss, healing after birth, regulating my cycle and connecting to my womb wisdom, intuition, creativity and vitality.
It is a deeply nourishing, ancient self care practice that has been handed down for generations and cultures the world over and has the ability to ease the transition through our life phases, release held stress, trauma and stagnation.
An intuitively created gentle blend to soothe, cleanse, tonifying and support your urinary and reproductive organs.
Herbs can be discussed and adjusted to your particular needs, current menstrual health, your womb season (pre-pregnancy / loss / post-partum / pre/post menopause) or at your request.
How Yoni Steaming works
Herbs used for yoni steaming nourish the porous mucosal tissues and increase circulation to the womb, reproductive organs and the entire pelvic region, helping to address menstrual irregularities such as short or long cycles, clearing stagnation often experienced as brown (old) blood and improve flow which tends to reduce pain and bloating.
In my experience steaming to encourage release after pregnancy loss and assist the process of complete clearing of the uterine lining has been extremely beneficial as well as deeply healing.
Yoni Steaming after giving birth is a wonderfully gentle way to reconnect to your womb and heart, heal damaged tissues, encourage uterine contraction and release.
When creating my Yoni steam herbs I use a base of gentle herbs such as Lavender, Rose, Calendula and Motherwort and can include herbs such as Rosemary, Oregano, Marshmallow, Comfrey, Yarrow & Raspberry leaf depending on your needs.
How to use your Goddess Seat for yoni Steaming
Take a 1/4 cup of your herbs and gently drop into a just boiled pot of water, stir and cover. Allow to steep for 15 minutes. I prefer to steam in the evening and so use this time to shower and get in my robe. Check to see if the herbs are still steaming and gently reheat if necessary.
Pour into your chosen bowl and place inside your Goddess Seat. Sit down, get comfortable, making sure you’re wrapped up, warm and the steam can’t escape. Be mindful of the temperature of the steam isn’t too hot! If you can’t comfortably hold your face over the steam you know it’s too hot – so wait.
Relax, connect with your breath and your body. Begin to tune into your womb.
Sit for 15-20 minutes. Meditate, listen to music, or sit in silence. Enjoy this dedicated time for yourself.
I like to journal in bed or lay down straight after and find deep slumber and healing tends to follow a steam.
There are a few precautions to be aware of;
- Do not steam if you have any type of IUD
- If you are pregnant or think you may be
- During or immediately after ovulation if trying to conceive
- When you are bleeding.
