Trend: Vaginal Steaming
Updated: Dec 16, 2019
What is Vaginal Steaming?
The new popular trend in the United States. It is not new, but becoming the new "it" thing to do for women who menstruate. It's recommended to perform a vagina steam only right after your period. Vaginal steaming in Chinese medicine is used to relieve stagnation and coldness in the body, and in Eastern medicine in general it is used to dilate the blood vessels, increase blood circulation, provide oxygenation and relax the pelvic floor muscles. The most commonly used herbs for vaginal steaming are mugwort, basil, calendula, oregano, marshmallow root, wormwood and rosemary.
How to Steam Your Vagina:
1. Boil water and after it has cooled add in the herbs
2. Pour the contents in a bowl and place it on a stool
3. To maximize the steam place a towel around your waist to create a tent around so the vapor doesn't escape.
