Vaginal steam herbal baths are an old, respected treatment for women used by Maya midwives and healers. Bajos (ba-hoes), as they are called in Spanish, are a common and effective treatment for may female complains, especially those of a serious or chronic nature. Vagina steam baths are also good preventive care. Some of the most commonly used plants for the vaginal steam bath are oregano, basil, marigold, and rosemary. Other herbs useful include burdock leaves, motherwort, Saint-hon-Wort, Chamomille damiana, plantail horsetail, red clover yarrow, dandelion, yellow burdock, and squawvine.

What's more, it's easy for any woman to do a vaginal steam at home. To do so, simply steep approximately 1 heaping cup dry yoni steaming in a basin of hot water, remove your clothing from the waist down, and find a quiet place to relax with the steam below your bottom for 20-40 minutes. Be sure the water isn't too hot, so as to avoid burns. Stay wrapped in warm blankets as you sit. This is a great time to write in a journal, meditate or set some intentions! Once the time has passed, remain wrapped in blankets and lie down in a warm bed for the night. The herbs will continue to work on your reproductive system as you sleep, and you'll wake up feeling healed and nurtured. Then, if you are like the countless other women who use the vaginal steam, you'll notice reduced cramping, lessened bloating, and more energy at the onset of your next period.
How does it work? According to Dr. Arvigo, the tissues of the vagina are exceptionally porous and absorbent, and the warmth of the steam works to soften and open them. When the herbs are placed in the hot water, their medicinal properties, including volatile oils, are released and carried to the surface of your skin, and to the inside of the vagina, where they are absorbed into the bloodstream and, ultimately, into to the uterus. The medicinal herbal steam increases circulation, thins mucus, and cleanses the entire reproductive system, allowing it to shed unnecessary membranes and buildup. In doing so, we support the uterus to function at its best, thus reducing the amount of work it has to do, and therefore your discomfort. Vaginal steaming is an age-old remedy that has been tested and approved by generations before us, and its time has come in our modern culture. This ancient treatment for women has stood the test of time, and today it has the incredible potential to significantly improve every woman's experience of her beautiful body. Just as it always has.
