"I’ve been practicing vaginal steaming for years
and it helps so much to relieve period pain, clear stagnated brown period blood, and minimize spotting.
I regularly recommend vaginal steaming to my clients and they love the practice! After receiving so many benefits from steaming, some of my clients have even gone on to become vaginal steam practitioners so that they can share the healing and benefits from steaming with others."
Certified Women's Health Coach
NATURAL, GENTLE, EFFECTIVE
Vaginal steaming is a practice that has been used throughout the world to safely support uterine and menstrual health for thousands of years.
Unfortunately, the wisdom and practice of vaginal steaming was largely forgotten with the banishment of midwifery and herbal medicine in the late 19th century.
Thankfully women are now bringing back the gentle, powerful, and extremely effective healing of vaginal steaming by incorporating the Kitara sauna into their in-home self care routine.
Fill a medium sized pot with water and place it on medium-high heat.
If you have herbs for your vaginal steam, add them to the pot before heating.
After steam begins to rise from your pot, but before you see it boil, remove the pot from the heat.
Remove Sauna lid and place your pot inside the Kitara Sauna. Close the lid again. Check the heat of the steam with your hand to ensure it is not to hot, waiting for temp to cool if needed. You're ready to steam!
Sit on top of your sauna uncovered from the waist down. After you sit, you may want to wrap a cozy organic blanket over your lap. Widen your knees apart from each other comfortably.
The steam should feel warm and soothing, never hot, painful, or even the slightest bit uncomfortable.
Enjoy your steam for 10-15 minutes or up to 30 minutes if first advised by a Certified Vaginal Steam Practitioner.
While you steam, enjoy some favorite soothing music or a meditation, drink a cup of tea, enjoy a face mask, and relax into your sweet moment of embodied self care.

Beautiful box and great support and instructions. I'm excited to start my practice.
I was so excited to try my new sauna. The last time I steamed, it was in a metal bowl over the toilet! Not exactly the environment in which I would want to engage in such a sacred and important ritual. The Kitara sauna is well built, beautiful, and easy to use! I'm so pleased with my purchase!
Opening the box was such a fun experience because the sauna is BEAUTIFUL. I wasn't sure entirely what to expect, but this is exactly the sturdy vaginal steam box you'd want to use. It's made of ultra high quality wood and the workmanship is beautiful.
You could either tuck this box away or fit it into a room's aesthetic. I really love it and feel happy just being near it, which is obviously what you want when doing steaming. :)
designed for ultimate ease of use and portability
The Kitara Sauna is 14in x 14in x 14in. Small enough to be lovingly tucked into a closet when not in use.
Cute enough for your living room, just pop a coffee table book or a jar of flowers on top and let it blend into your home aesthetic!
YES. Major contraindications or times when steaming is to be avoided are:
1) During pregnancy (steam opens the cervix)
2) During your bleed/period (steam increases blood flow)
3) Between ovulation and bleed when trying to conceive
4) If you're experiencing spontaneous bleeding/ bleeding in-between periods
NO. When practiced properly, steaming is always gentle, soothing, and relaxing. Before every steam session, check the temperature of the steam coming out of the top of the sauna with the palm of your hand. If it's too hot for comfort, wait for the steam to cool. If you think it's cool enough and then things heat up beyond comfort, stand up immediately and wait again for the steam to cool. If ever something just doesn't feel right, pause your practice and reach out to us at Kitara. We're here to help!
A note on our current culture: We tend to have this "work hard, play hard" script operating in our lives that steaming does not fit into. There is no benefit from enduring discomfort. In fact, steaming is more beneficial when experienced with gentleness and ease. It is a time to connect lovingly with you yoni through nurturance and care.
Please book a consultation with Kitara if you'd like to know if your body is better suited for a mild (10min) or advanced (30min) steam. We do not recommend ever steaming for longer than 30min per session.
