Self Care: Yoni Steaming

Over the course of this month, I've been doing a series on yoni care. I know that this has been a popular topic but still, many women don't know what it is and why it is so important to have this discussion. 

What Is YONI And Why Is It So Important? 

The Yoni represents the womb, the whole reproductive system the sacred space, the vagina, and vulva the uterus, cervix, ovaries and more. There is a lot of history and background to this term and its origin.

In India in the Hindu culture, "the Yoni which is an old Sanskrit word is referred to as your "Goddess: and is worshipped as the sacred symbol of the divine feminine the Devi, the goddess Shakti, the source of life, the Universal Womb and the consort of Shiva. In Shaivism, the Hindu worshipped the god Shiva, the yoni is often associated Our yoni is a sacred temple. with the ligam, which is Shiva's symbol. In sculptures and paintings, the lingam is depicted as resting in the yoni as a cylinder in a spouted dish. The two symbols together represent the eternal process of creation and regeneration, the union of the male and female principles, and the totality of all existence. 

Now there are things that I can take from this. Being a Christian I believe in only one God and believe that God is THE SOURCE of life because He is THE CREATOR and He has made men and women for the purpose of reproducing offsprings. And as women, we grow a whole new body in our wombs. We have this whole ecosystem in our wombs that's capable of feeding the baby the nutrients that it needs to grow. And that is so amazing and a blessing!!! God made us as women so special and capable of carrying.

And figuratively I do believe that our yoni is sacred and because our bodies are the Temple of the Lord I believe that we as women should be careful of what we allow around us and into us because we weren't designed to have multiple visitors or parties entering our sacred areas. That's why I believe God tells us to wait because having multiple parties can not only mentally effect us but it can affect us spiritually and physically. This is very deep! So I'll stop with the preaching lol. 

And aside from that, the health of our yoni can also be altered by stress and diet. So after saying all of this...

What inspired me to get into this topic?

For years I've suffered from reoccurring bacterial vaginosis and uti and I could not figure out what was wrong with me. Growing up you think you have a disease and it's really scary and it was embarrassing to talk to my parents because it wasn't normal. I tried to treat it with antibiotics, which only made it worst not knowing that I should have been taking probiotics while taking antibiotics but the doctors neeeeeever told me that. (Of course they didn't) Did they not know? The scent that I would get from bv and uti was so embarrassing I didn't even want to go out. 

So over a year ago I started switching to mostly organic products from my tampons/pads and even douching method. Now I've never been into the traditional douching method. Logically it didn't make sense so I didn't do it but I did run into this natural douching device from Waterworks and it has made a difference in my life. You can read more about it HERE.

But I've been doing a lot of research and earlier this year I've been researching on the topic of yoni steaming and the benefits of it for us women. Yoni Steaming has many benefits such as: 

  • Regulates irregular or absent menstrual cycles. 
  • Increases fertility
  • Speeds healing and tones the reproductive system after birth
  • Treats uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, uterine weakness, uterine prolapse & endometriosis
  • Assists with the repair of a vaginal tear, episiotomy, or c-section scarring
  • Assists with the healing of hemorrhoids.
  • Treats chronic vaginal/yeast infections, and works to maintain healthy odor. (I'm a living witness to this)
  • Relieves symptoms of menopause including dryness or pain during intercourse.
  • Detoxifies the womb and removes toxins from the body
  • Releases stored emotions tapping into the energy that is our creative potential 
  • Minimizes the pain from cramps
In my case, I was suffering from chronic vaginal/yeast infections and uti which weakened my urinal canal. I needed a herbal detox. UTI's I would get maybe once or twice a year.

There are spa's that offers yoni steaming services but I do my yoni steam from the privacy of my home which is a lot more cost effective. 

I've currently been using Essentially True Yoni Steam and I've noticed an incredible difference since I've used it. 

A question I was asked in regards to my yoni steaming process. 

"Did you have to wear a light pad afterward to catch what the body is detoxing from?"

No I didn't have to wear a pad but everyone's body is different and purges differently. Normally I wait a few days after my cycle before I do the yoni steam detox. So basically directly after my cycle I would flush it out with my natural douche system which I talked about on this post . And then 1-2 days later I will do the yoni steam detox. Sometimes I would do it in conjunction which depends on how I'm feeling at the moment. It doesn't hurt to wear pads or if you're into tampons you can do that. I'd suggest organic tampons/pads. Which I also linked you too in the post. Also allow your body time to adjust because when you're making changes it takes time for your body to adjust to holistic alternatives. So if you don't notice anything immediately allow time. Just be consistent!

If you're interested in trying it out check out Essentially True use my code "FAITH1" and you will get 15% off. Also, check out her other products... (Stay tuned for my overall review)

She has other products too. If you don't want to commit to the full size she has other options that would allow you to try it out. Also, she will be discontinuing the 4oz size of yoni oil but I will say a little goes a long way. But get them while they're still in stock because they are 50% off. Once they run out there will only be 2oz available.
