Steamy and nurturing practice: what is yoni steaming?

Yoni steaming, also known as v-steaming, vaginal steaming, chai-yok, or bajo is actually a traditional practice enjoyed by many women worldwide of sitting above a boiling pot of water with rejuvenating herbs.

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

Find out how to perform a yoni steam properly

Whether you use a special steam box or simply just place a pot in the toilet (do-it-yourself version), our recommendation is – to ensure that the steaming process is practiced properly – that the water and herbs should always be a minimum of 16 inches from the vagina, and also that the steam rises in a natural way without having a consistent source of heat.

During your yoni steam ritual in the convenience of your home, drape a sizable sheet or blanket around your waist to prevent steam from getting out.

A healthy woman could steam in average two to three times every month as a part of a general wellness ritual, always at a time when you are not menstruating.
