Here are a few more great benefits of a yoni steam.
1. Improves the menstrual cycle
Yoni steaming has the ability to significantly reduce pain, bloating and exhaustion associated with menstruation, as well as to regulate irregular or absent menstrual cycles. It works like this: after the yoni steam herbs release their cleansing and healing oils into hot water, they are carried via steam to the porous skin of the outer labia, where they are absorbed. The ancient wisdom says that from there, the properties of the plants are carried through the bloodstream into the uterus, where they help to dislodge the stuck material that causes discomfort during menstruation.
- Heals the womb
Yoni steaming supports the uterus to shed old blood, it can help the miraculous organ to expel any non-essential tissue or cells, including polyps, cysts, or endometrial growing outside the uterus. The result after using yoni steam herbs is a healthier womb, inside and out.
- Helps with relaxation
If you do yoni steam, you will notice that during those 20-30 minutes you have the ability to focus on your own well-being and go inward. Thanks to all these yoni steam herbs you will experience a powerful release of stored emotions and stress as well. This is an excellent time to reflect, meditate or just write in a journal.
- Helps to increase fertility
There may be many reasons for fertility challenges, but one of those reasons is induration (hardened lining) and buildup of old material in the venous lakes (folds) on the uterine walls. By breaking up this excess material and releasing it through menstruation, the uterine walls are prepared for a fertilized egg to attach and thrive. In many cases, this is the missing piece of the preparation for a successful pregnancy.
