What is V-steaming? It is a practice in which a woman allows the warmth of herbal steam to permeate the exterior of her vagina. Respected by healers around the globe, vaginal steaming is an opportunity to reconnect with your body and utilize the wisdom of herbal medicine to heal your cycle.
The use of specific herbs adds layers of different healing benefits, depending on the fertility-related health condition being treated. The combination of herbs work to nourish, tone, heal, bring in fresh oxygenated blood, promote cleansing, and supply the vaginal area and uterine tissues. The moist heat opens the pores of the tissues it comes into contact with. The water vapor carries the medicinal benefits of the plants, including volatile oils. This is absorbed into the tissues and enters the bloodstream, having a direct healing effect on the reproductive system. Vaginal tissue is one of the most absorbent of the entire female body.
The advantages of V-Steaming Baths are to aid as an internal cleanser of the membranes of the vaginal tissues and the uterus. This is considered extremely important for stagnant fertility conditions, and/or incomplete emptying of menses each cycle.
