Benefits of Vaginal Steaming
Yoni steaming has many reported benefits.
Here you'll find eight reasons to include yoni steaming in your health and wellness routine.
1. A Balanced & Optimal Menstrual Cycle

Keeps healthy cycles healthy.
Shortens long cycles and brings back missing periods.
Addressing uterine fatigue and lengthens short cycles. V 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. Yoni steaming clears stagnation and yields a regular monthly bleed of 3-4 days of fresh red blood.
3. Yoni Steam for 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
Yoni 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 yoni steaming for fibroid healing.

- Vaginal steaming is a practice enabling sustained connection to our womb space, life cycles, Mother Earth, and the moon.
6. Sexual Aliveness

7. Postpartum Care
Vaginal steaming for postpartum recovery has a rich, robust, and global history. Birthing people across the globe are revitalizing this practice. For more information, please see 8 Benefits of Postpartum Yoni Steaming.
8. Holistic Health
Beyond the many physical benefits of steaming are the emotional healing and spiritual connection also possible through this practice.

Vaginal steam schedules outlining when and how often you should steam to address your unique intentions, will vary depending on the individual.
To receive the most benefit from your steam practice,
What do I need for yoni steaming?
Most simply, only three things you truly need to yoni steam are a safe pot, water, and fire/heat source. Yoni steam herbs may optimize the benefits of steaming but are not a required part of the yoni steam practice.
For safety information about steaming with only a pot and water, please check out the below video How to Yoni Steam at Home WITHOUT a Yoni Steam Seat.
For added safety, ease, and comfort, many yoni steam loving folks choose to support their practice with the use of a yoni steam seat or yoni steam sauna.
What is a yoni steam sauna?
A yoni steam sauna is a simple wooden box that allows the practitioner to sit safely and comfortably over a steam pot. You may also see this referred to as a yoni steam box, a yoni steam stool, a yoni steam seat, or a vaginal steaming sauna. It has many names, but they all refer to the same thing.
The Kitara yoni steam sauna is built with a strategic design so that a practitioner can use a burner to sustain the heat and steam.
Though a burner is not required for yoni steaming, we hear time and time again, "I wish I had purchased a burner sooner. Now that I have a burner, my yoni steam practice is so much easier!"
