Women of all ages worldwide use Yoni Steaming (often called vaginal steaming, v-steaming, chai-yok, or bajo), a practice of sitting down above a pot of steaming water that is infused with re-energizing natural herbs.

This soothing treatment supports the female reproductive system and brings the yoni back into its naturally balanced state.

How to yoni steam safely at your home

Whether you use a special steam box or simply just put a pot in a toilet (do-it-yourself version), our recommendation is – in order for the treatment is performed properly – that the water and herbs should generallly be at least 16 inches from your yoni, and also that the steam rises naturally without having a steady source of heat.

Don’t let any steam escape during your yoni steam ritual at home by putting a large blanket surrounding the waist down to the floor.

A healthy woman could steam in average 2 to 3 times a month as a part of an overall wellness regime, preferably when you are not menstruating.
