Yoni steams bring moist heat to the womb & perineum, carrying with it the medicinal properties of the herbs. The vaginal tissue is highly absorbent, and when the herbal steam comes into contact with the body, the medicinal properties of the herbs are absorbed into the tissue and enter the bloodstream. This has a direct healing effect on the reproductive system. Yoni steams can be used to support vaginal health, cleanse the uterus, and maintain fertility. Since yoni steams increase blood flow to the vaginal area, it can have a positive effect on libido and the vaginal fluids. In general, yoni steams are beneficial for painful menstruation, irregular menstrual cycles, menstrual spotting, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, reproductive scar tissue, and previous vaginal tear or episiotomy.
