It’s a very ancient practice indeed that were only just reinstating the pure power of this ceremony.

How to do a Yoni Steam:

Here is my favourite way to do a Yoni Cleanse, there are no set rules, you can create your very OWN ceremony and can include:

I prefer to yoni steam by intuition, I have a feeling I want one and go ahead! however you can time them with the Moon Phases (Steaming on a full moon or dark moon is a good practice), after yoga or meditation practice, the choice is yours


A yoni Steam is a time for you to let go and come into complete rest phase as you release and purge from within your physical and emotional ‘Yoni’, so relaxation and calm environment is KEY. Get someone to look after your children, walk the dogs so they are settled, tell your partner you want some space etc

INSTRUCTIONS

READ FIRST !

Create a calm tranquil space where you will not be disturbed, your Yoni sanctuary Space, light candles, prepare music, have a snuggly robe handy to wrap yourself up in, or soft blankets and a space to lay afterwards, I like to do a yoni steam near my bed so I can then lie in bed for a while. (Also think of what position will be best for you to be in during your steam, i.e. squatting, seated, kneeling)

In your kitchen, Take a handful of herb blend and add to just boiled filtered water (or boil for 10 mins in a pan). Note: If in doubt start with 1 teaspoon of herb blend for your first steam and build up to a handful

Place hot mixture in bowl/bucket and carry to your yoni steaming space.


Take off your bottom layer(s) if you need to, put on a blanket or robe on your top body so you stay warm. prepare yourself to kneel/squat/lay over a bowl, and if you can rest on a surface so you are relaxed, when you get your position right, Place Towel, blanket or robe around you and the bucket/bowl, trapping steam in (ENSURE THE BOWL IS SAFE AS HOT WATER CAN BURN!) before you wrap the steams in Test hotness of water, how powerful in heat you want the steam to be (and how hot you can personally find comfortable), allow some air flow by removing the towel if the steam is too hot for you, ensure the temperature and distance from steam is suitable at all times and remember that hot water/steam can burn so be cautious at all times. Relax in the steam for 10-30 mins, it will be nice and warm first, VERY RELAXING, then will slowly go cooler
