wise wom·an ~ a woman considered to be knowledgeable in matters such as herbal healing, magic charms, or other traditional lore.
Created to embrace your sacred wise woman during the phases & changes associated with menopause. Yoni steaming has been practiced in foreign countries since the dawn of time. While westerners can be quite skeptical of this tradition, experiencing it oneself is the best way to decide if it is helpful to YOU. A common misconception is that this is used to “clean” the vagina. That is not the case at all, as vaginas should only be physically cleaned with pure water.
Vaginal steaming is beneficial in the menopausal years physically to tone the uterus, lubricate & hydrate, reduce and soothe irritation & dryness and other symptoms associated with hemorrhoids, vaginal prolapse, menopause, womb trauma, yeast infection, and pretty much any other physical ailments concerning all vulva, vaginal & womb areas. It’s used mentally & spiritually to help one connect with their womanhood, as a form of reclaiming our own bodies after physical & sexual abuse, for womb rituals, manifesting healing & balance both internally & externally, connection, restoring & balancing the sacral chakra.
Many people find great comfort and release, both physically and emotionally after vaginal steaming. It is used regularly after perineum tissue damaging events, including examinations, transitional surgery and sexual intercourse. Some use this to connect to their divine feminine side, their inner goddess and intuition. Some perform this steam to simply get to know their vaginas better, and some for the relaxation benefits and to connect with the waxing & waning of the moon.
Used since ancient times by wise women everywhere, these sacred & vital plant allies of butterfly pea flower, wildcrafted organic lavender, witch hazel leaf, calendula petals, yarrow flower, St. John’s wort, wild yam root, red clover tops & comfrey root has been created for the reparative, healing, moisturizing, soothing and calming benefits of each plant. Butterfly Pea (Clitoria Ternatea) has been used for centuries as a memory enhancer, brain booster, anti-stress and calmative agent. Its name comes from its resemblance to female genitalia making it a magical addition to all womb work. It’s also commonly used because of the positive effects the naturally occurring flavonoid quercetin has on skin and hair.
Whatever your reason for vaginal steaming, whatever most Westerners say about it, whether you purchase it here or elsewhere or create your own, it can be a wonderful way to connect to oneself, relax, bring relief and utilize another form of self care.
Add 1 tablespoon to a bowl of boiling water, allowing it to sit and create a tea-like solution. Wrap a towel around the waist and keeping the feet warm, squat over the bowl (some people like to place the bowl in the toilet to be able to sit comfortably, some people have a specific chair for steaming). Be sure that the water is not too hot and that you will not burn yourself. Sit for as long as you’re comfortable (20 minutes is a great minimum). If it feels too hot, allow the water to sit longer to cool more.
