Vaginal or yoni steam baths are an old respected treatment for women practiced by many ancient cultures and civilizations.
WARNING: DO NOT USE WHILE ON YOUR MONTHLY CYCLE OR IF PREGNANT
African, Haitian, Mayan, Asian, Spanish, etc...
Bajos (ba-hoes) as they are called in Spanish, are a common and effective treatment for many female complaints especially those of a serious or chronic nature. Some midwives, postpartum doulas, and natural homeopathic healers give them within 1-9 days after childbirth depending on the personal preference and the woman’s condition.
They are excellent for
- ovarian cysts
- cervical+uterus fibroids
- overall womb care
- as a general health aid to prevent any of those ailments.
From my PPD (postpartum doula), bath+body care product training certification background and years of experience in this field, we at M&F suggest vaginal steams be done regularly, how often depends on the severity of a woman’s condition.
for DIY convenience, we are offering specialized designed blends depending on a woman’s condition, ailment, or specific situation. Our herbal blends are pleasantly potent to holistically heal or rather aid in healing where you can receive in person treatment or are easy to do from the comfort of your own home. Instructions are listed on each bag and we suggest buying our accompanying sitz+yoni steam bath seat from our MUST-HAVE section on site.
DIRECTIONS FOR YOUR DIY V-STEAM
•In a medium covered pot, pour 8 cups of water (preferably purified water) or instead of a pot, boil water in a kettle.
•Get one handful of fresh herb(s) or 1/4-1/2 cup dried herbs into sitz bath seat. Do not add or use “essential oils” as they are too strong and may burn sensitive genital tissue.
•Let water soft boil for 5 minutes in pot or when kettle shuts off
Turn off the heat, and let sit for a few seconds.
•It is very important to test the temperature of the steam before using it. If it is too hot wait 15 seconds and test it again until it feels comfortably warm to steam with.
•Pour 4 cups (half) of water or boiled water in kettle into the sitz bath seat you have placed in your toilet with herbs.
Wave your hand 8-10 inches over the herbal water to make sure it is not too hot.
•Remove your underwear and sit on the seat above the steaming water.
Drape a large blanket or sheet around your waist down to the floor making sure no steam escapes.
•Make sure you keep yourself warm, keeping something on your feet (socks, slippers) and neck. You do not want any cold to get into your body while you are trying to warm it.
You should feel a warm, rolling heat for about 12-15 minutes.
•When the steam dies down dump the water into the toilet. Starting with step #4 begin the second dosage. If it has cooled too much reheat but test again before sitting over the steam, sit for a total of 25-35min.
