The Empress

In a nutshell, a Yoni Steam is like a facial steam but for your vagina.
This ancient practice involves sitting over a pot of herb infused warm water and allowing the steam to tone, soften and rejuvenate both the interior and exterior realms. Yoni steaming is a simple traditional remedy that we, modern day women, can call upon to naturally treat the root causes of the challenges associated with the menstrual cycle.
Yoni Steams are known to:
	Reduce period pain significantly.
	Address pre and post-menstrual spotting.
	Regulate irregular or absent menstrual cycles.
	Improve fertility.
	Increase circulation and blood flow.
	Speed healing and tone the reproductive system after childbirth.
	Cleanse the uterine lining of old blood.
	Treat uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, uterine weakness, uterine prolapse, and endometriosis.
	Improve period bleeding that is brown or black in colour.
	Relieve symptoms of menopause including hot flashes and vaginal dryness.

How to do it:  
Turn on some calming music, burn some copal, palo santo, or incense, and grab a book -plus anything else you’d like to add to make your experience enjoyable.
Ideally, you have a steaming stool (available on etsy, amazon, etc.)
Alternatively, an incredibly clean toilet will do or a place where you can squat over the herbs without burning yourself. *be very cautious not to touch the pot with your body.
It’s often best to steep the herbs on the stove in 1 pot and then transfer them to another (cooled pot) for steaming. 
	Start by boiling about 3 quarts of filtered water. Once boiling, add 1 cup of dried herbs, reduce heat, cover, and simmer for about 5 minutes.

	Turn off the heat ; let the mixture cool for 5 minutes. From there, you can transfer the herbs to a cool pot, place below your steam stool (or your super clean toilet) and get undressed from the waist down.	 
	Sit on your stool or toilet over the steam for 15-30 minutes. The steam should not feel too hot or aggressive. If it does, wait another 5 minutes & then try again. Use a towel to cover yourself and lock the steam in. Use this time for meditation, reading, or whatever feels right.	 
	When finished, discard the water and herbs in the garden or add them to your compost.
