Vaginal steaming has many reported benefits. 
Here you'll find eight reasons to include vaginal steaming in your health and wellness routine.

1. A Balanced & Optimal Menstrual Cycle

Vaginal steaming supports the re-balancing of the cycle and the return of a healthy and consistent period.

  • Keeps healthy cycles healthy.

  • Shortens long cycles and brings back missing periods.

  • Addressing uterine fatigue and lengthens short cycles. Vaginal steaming supports the re-balancing of cycle and the return to a healthy and consistent period. 

2. Pain Free Periods 

The root cause of cramps and lower back pain is the stagnated blood that the uterus is contracting in effort to release. Vaginal steaming supports the complete monthly cleanse of the uterus. No stagnation = no reason for the uterus to cramp.  

The presence of brown blood before and after the monthly period is an indication of stagnation. If you have this occurrence of brown blood, please know that it is common but not normal or optimal. Vaginal steaming clears stagnation and yields a regular monthly bleed of 3-4 days of fresh red blood.

3. Increased Fertility

The number one indicator of optimal fertility is the presence of a healthy menstrual cycle, including monthly ovulation and a regular healthy period.  Steaming addresses the root cause of infertility by supporting the return of balanced and healthy cycle. 

Vaginal steaming is also used to cleanse and prepare the uterus for insemination, IVF, and IUI. In these cases steaming is only safe before, never after, the insemination/implementation. 

4. Fibroids & Cysts 

Vaginal steaming helps liquify and release fibroids and cysts as a non-surgical option to their removal.

Please see "Fibroids & Non-Surgical Healing" for more information about vaginal steaming for fibroid healing.

  • Vaginal steaming adds moisture into the body helping to address vaginal dryness 
  • Cooling herbs are used to release excess heat from the body
  • Vaginal steaming is a practice enabling sustained connection to our womb space, life cycles, Mother Earth, and the moon.
