Bring 4 to 6 cups of water to a boil on stovetop. Add 1/2 cup of herb blend and reduce to simmer. Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.
Pour contents into a nontoxic heat safe bowl or pot. Place directly under yoni stool. Ensure the water level is at least six inches below the top of the stool.
Place your hand over the top opening of the stool to assure the steam temperature is appropriate and there is no risk of burning. If it feels too hot, wait a few minutes and test again.
Grab your favourite large blanket and sit on the stool with your vagina covering the opening. Wrap the blanket around your waist, covering all sides of the stool down to the floor. Make sure no steam is being released from any openings.
Relax and receive the benefits of the steam for 20 minutes or until your body tells you otherwise.
Always use your best judgement in regards to temperature when yoni steaming. Everyone has varying heat sensitivities; please always ensure you're doing what's comfortable and safe for your body. Steam can be extremely hot and has the potential to burn you.
Make sure stool is on a flat and stable surface before sitting and steaming.
Steaming is NOT recommended for the following:
✧ During menstruation
✧ While pregnant
✧ If you have any open sores and/or wounds on your vagina
✧ If you experience heavy bleeding outside of your monthly menstruation
✧ If you have an IUD of any kind, yoni steaming may be aggravating. Use your own judgement and research.
While yoni steaming, feel free to enjoy whatever helps relax you. Journal, sip a cup of tea or wine, light a candle, read a book, meditate, paint your nails, or simply sit and notice the sensations.
