Vaginal Steam/Herbs?

Postby bellyblessings » Sat Feb 24, 2007 4:49 pm

Hello-- I'm wondering if anyone knows how to do a vaginal steam, and what herbs are best for this? What is the steam indicated for? I saw it mentioned somewhere, and it sounded really intriguing.

Thanks!

Rosita Arvigo has lots of info/herbal suggestions/how tos for vaginal steams in her book "Rainforest Home Remedies: The Maya Way to Heal Your Body and Replenish Your Soul" I've loaned out my copy, so I don't have the exact info on hand.

From what I recall, though, you essentially put boiling water over herbs in a bowl. Sit in a chair that has the center part removed, cover lap/bottom of chair with a blanket. Think basically the same as a facial/nasal steam but for the yoni ;)

Depending on the herbs used, it can help with everything from toning and tightening the vaginal tissues (as in after childbirth), helping with bartholin-type cysts, vaginal infections, hemorrhoidal tissue, or general external irritation to the yoni.


Neat, eh?

I just reada bout this in the moon water thread and feel like I found what I need. I find that during my moon time is when this sounds especially apealing because I get very achy and crampy in my vaginal floor- actually, my whole sitting area. Any suggestions on herbs to use for this?
