Vaginal Steaming & the benefits.

First, A quick history on yoni herb steaming: Yoni steaming has been practiced in many ancient, indigenous cultures around the world! While some may think of it as taboo, it’s actually an ancient forgotten wisdom used by medicine women in African, Asian and Mayan cultures. In modern times, it’s growing in popularity in the West. Yoni is a Sanskrit word meaning “vagina,” “womb,” or “origin of life.” Yoni steaming is the ritual of gently cleansing and healing your vagina by allowing the warmth to permeate the vagina, cervix, uterus and entire reproductive system.

Alright you guys so let me give you a bit of a backstory on why I have decided to start yoni herbal steaming aka hydrotherapy for your yoni. First off, I am all here for making my lady bits look good, feel good, smell good and taste good (in all honesty were all adults so yeah moving on). When I did my research, because I have to be honest, I have never heard of yoni herbal steaming up until a few months back. I was sold once I saw it helps with fertility because more babies are in our future and that’s really all the reason I need. As I continued to read and research, I couldn’t believe all the amazing benefits that comes with yoni herbal steaming! Fertility help is just an added bonus for me however, there are many more benefits and many more different herb mixes, you just have to find the one that is right for you.

FERTILITY CHALLENGES: Women who are experiencing fertility challenges should steam once per week, and twice during pre-ovulation, to make sure that the tissue is moist and that the cervical fluids are clear and copious. They should expect to steam for three months before seeing results.

Yoni steaming helps because the steam help carry the herbal medicine through the subtle channels to the uterus, where it helps the womb to loosen this old matter and deeply cleanse itself. The material is then released through menstruation during the next cycle, making space for the fertilized egg to successfully implant and grow.

YONI DETOX CLEANSING: The V-Steams are ph balanced to help the body naturally cleanse the vaginal and uterine linings in a safe and gentle way. The warm steam and natural essential oils from the plants nourish and tone the vaginal and uterine tissues. They provide affable and effectual support for women’s wellness.

MENSTRUAL CYCLES: Doing vaginal steams 1x the week before your period and 1x the week after your period can assist in relieving menstrual pain & reducing brown blood and blood clots thereby balancing menstrual issues over time while maintaining a healthy odor.

Cramps, tightness or pain during intercourse: Yoni Steam soothes and relaxes the pelvic muscles. Be especially mindful to practice deep breathing while steaming for these conditions.

Peri-menopause and menopause: Yoni Steam can stimulate circulation and support your womb to continue to release fully even when your cycle is slowing. For menopausal women, yoni steam will revitalize vaginal tissue, improve vaginal dryness, and help with the change of season.

As you can see there is a great amount more of benefits to yoni herbal steaming, I only listed several. However, I feel as though the benefits I have listed are more than enough to get you to understand how amazing yoni herbal steaming is.

A bit of a disclaimer I have only been steaming for two weeks but I have to say within the first couple of minutes after you’re done you can feel a bit of a difference so please be sure to have you a panty liner or pad (whatever your comfortability) handy because you will leak.

When I first received my herbs and the rest of the things, I need in order to steam I was still hesitant because I was like Vera girl do you even know what you're doing as far as how hot the water should be? How long to sit and what to use to cover my bottom half to keep the steam from escaping? What herbs am I using? Plus a few more but these questions were most important to me! Of course, I did what you all know me to do……some research so because I had these questions, I decided to give you guys the answers. Below has everything you need in order to start your yoni steaming journey.

I did not want to take a picture of myself while steaming so this is not my photo. I borrowed it from google.

You will need:

  • Chair with open slates, stool with a open slot or a toilet

  • Herbs

  • Water

  • Large Pot

  • a blanket or towel to cover your bottom half. I just wear a sundress.

How To Use Yoni Steam:

Step 1: Have prepared Yoni Steam Herbs or mix your own Step 2: Bring water to a boil in a large pot Step 3: Add herbs to boiling water and cover pot and let simmer Step 4: Allow herbs to steep for 10 minutes and stir occasionally Step 5: Place pot of water under the chair, prepare to for squatting position with something to steady bowl to avoid burning, or place underneath toilet seat (If using a toilet: Make sure that your toilet is extremely clean. Once your toilet is clean you should wrap the bowl of steaming herbs in a cloth to protect your toilet) Step 6: Sit over herb infused water, wrap your lower body in a blanket or robe to keep steam in, and allow the steam to enter into your vagina for at least 20 minutes.

When I do my steam, I use an herb mix I purchased from Amazon which I will link below along with the sage I burn and the crystals as well. I also like to listen to music at least that what I did last week. This week I wrote in my journal and read my book.

In my herb mix is red rose buds and petals, lavender flowers, chamomile flower, calendula flowers, rosemary leaf, basil leaf, mugwort. This herb mix is used for all the benefits I have listed above. There are many other yoni herbs mixes you can try (in which I will be purchasing soon) or you can make your own. I haven’t gotten to that stage yet but I’m sure I will, when I do, I will be sure to inform you all.

You guys I have to say that I have a newfound love and it goes by the name of yoni herbal steaming. The herbs I use are amazing as well, I have no complaints or issues so far. If ever I do, I will be sure to do an update to inform you all but for right now Ms. Twala is happy!

Questions for you:

  1. Have you ever tried yoni herb steaming? If so, did you like or dislike it and why?

  2. Are you willing to try yoni herb steaming for the first time if you haven’t tried it already?

  3. Let me know in the comment section!


Avoid Yoni Steams if:

  • If you have an IUD

  • If you are bleeding

  • You are pregnant or think you may be pregnant

  • If you have a vaginal infection or open wound


It’s important to understand that Yoni Steaming is not for cleaning your yoni. Your yoni is inherently self-cleaning. When the Yoni Steaming is described as cleansing, it is referring to the way the heat and steam supports our feminine bodies in their own natural release and vibrant vitality.
