Yoni steaming, also known as vaginal steaming, is a practice in which a woman allows the warmth of herbal steam to permeate the exterior of her vagina. Respected by healers around the globe, yoni steaming is an opportunity to reconnect with your body and utilize the wisdom of plant medicine to heal your cycle.
For millennia, women have shared this knowledge among one another, inspiring each other to connect with, love and heal our bodies. Today, countless women are rediscovering the practice, along with its vast and varied benefits.
Yoni steams have been found by women throughout history to:
Women experience life-changing benefits as a result of yoni steaming.
Many reproductive challenges such as menstrual cramps and infertility are caused when there is excess build up of uterine lining that was not shed in previous cycles “encrusted” to the inside of the uterus. Because this material is built up over time, the uterus and the muscles around it work excessively hard to shed it, often causing pain and fatigue. A yoni steam works by applying gentle heat, as well as moisture that carries medicinal plant oils, to the exterior tissues of the vagina (the tissue referred to as the vulva). The warmth and moisture increase circulation to the vulva, causing it to swell and expose the inner labial mucus membranes. These tissues are very porous and absorbent, allowing the bloodstream to pick up the medicinal oils and and carry them into the inner reproductive system, including the uterus. There, they work to help the uterus cleanse and release what is built up on its lining, ensuring that the next cycle is easy and pain-free, helping an egg to implant, and reducing other uterine abnormalities. The result is a healthier, more pleasant cycle and a more connected woman.
You may have read that some Western doctors are opposed to yoni steaming, disregarding it as “unsafe” and “ineffective". This is in part due to a fundamental misunderstanding about how it works, so let’s clear that up first. Yoni steaming is NOT intended to blow steam into the uterus, nor is the intention to get plant material into the vagina, as indeed those actions would be very invasive. Yoni steaming works far more subtly, as the molecular compounds of the beneficial plants are bonded with the water vapor, which enters through the pores of the exterior of the vagina, also known as the vulva. As long as the steam is not too hot, this gentle process is safe and non-invasive. Secondly, most Western doctors do not have any experience, let alone formal training, in this ancient women’s practice. Perhaps this is due in part to the lack of scientific studies on the topic, as Western medical practice tends to disregard anything for which there is “no evidence.” However, it will soon be impossible for them to disregard the mounting evidence in the form of woman release In our minds, thousands of years of women’s testimonials, including widespread success stories today, are more legitimate than any lab tests. Countless women report to each other, and to us, the benefits listed above, and this is what propels us to continue sharing this powerful medicine with the world. It is our great hope that doctors get on board one day soon, so that even more women may benefit. We look forward to scientific “proof” of what women have always known: yoni steaming is safe and effective.
A yoni steam is a simple and accessible practice for any woman to do at home. It involves placing a pot of hot water and aromatic herbs under a seat with a hole in it, disrobing from the waist down, and sitting over the steam for about 30 minutes while the steam gently permeates the skin.

“After doing 3 steams my period has appeared to have returned to normal!!! I was experiencing very heavy long periods. One period lasted 18 days!! After steaming my last period lasted 5 days and I hardly had any PMS symptoms...no clotting or heavy bleeding!!! HALLELUJAH!!!” — Ruth
"I am happy to say that my results so far are amazing. I used to have excruciating painful periods, to the extreme that I would have to stop what I was doing and lie down in a fetal position. Now, after using the yoni steams a few times I am happy to say my periods are a breeze. They are lighter than they were, less gushing, very minimal discomfort." —
Yoni steaming is about more than uterine health, and it is certainly more than a beauty treatment. The practice brings a re-connection to the female body and to the wisdom of plant medicine. It is an opportunity for women to celebrate and cherish our bodies, and learn to enjoy our wombs as the beautiful, sacred center from which we radiate our capacity to change the world. Yoni steaming is also about women taking back ownership of our personal health, and utilizing our intuition, as well as gifts from the Earth, to support and nourish our well-being. This is also about trusting the wisdom of generations of women, elevating their perspectives as not only valid, but integral to our health.
A little louder for those in the back: the ancient practice of yoni steaming is being fervently revived by countless women today. But, you might still be wondering why exactly so many ladies are squatting over a pot of hot water and herbs. So let us explain. Here are just a few of the reasons why women are trying (and loving!) yoni steaming, and why you should too:
If for no other reason, you should steam your vagina because it feels great. The gentle warmth and moisture of a yoni steam increase circulation (blood flow) to the exterior of your vagina (aka. your vulva). As it turns out, this is the same thing that happens when you are aroused. The result? Steaming your vagina feels delightful….and there is truly nothing wrong with that. As women living in the modern world, we are invited to step into and embrace our sensuality, pleasure and enjoyment of our beautiful bodies.
Many women today confirm what has been known by our foremothers for centuries: that regular yoni steaming can reduce, if not eliminate, menstrual cramps, and everything that comes along with them (think bloating and fatigue…yuck!). The herbal medicine helps to clear the congestion and build-up in your uterus that cause these normal, yet unnecessary, side effects of menstruation, thus making your monthly cycle more pleasant than ever.
As a woman, your creative center is in your yoni — your vagina and womb — and it is a powerful force in the world. A symbol of the Hindu Divine Mother, the yoni is revered in ancient Indian cultures as undeniably sacred. Yet most of us are disconnected with this powerful place in our bodies. Yoni steaming reconnects you with the goddess within you, which enlivens your wellness, inspires your purpose and cultivates your capacity for success. It is, after all, the origin of life — the place from which we birth not only babies, but ideas, visions and businesses. Your yoni is central to your energetic, emotional, sexual and intellectual wellbeing, and yoni steaming is a beautiful way to honor and celebrate this sacred part of your body.
When you think “detoxification”, you might think about the steam room at your local spa. That’s because it’s a well-known fact that steam can help draw toxins and impurities out of your skin via your sweat. Yoni steams utilize hydration and healing botanicals to increase circulation, open pores, thin mucus, dislodge stuck tissues, and release of toxins in all their forms. The gentle heat of the steam causes physical toxins to be released from cells into the lymphatic fluid, which is expelled from the body as sweat. When you expose your lady parts to gentle steam, you’re actually able to entice toxins out of your vagina, uterus and ovaries via the increased blood flow and opening of pores in the region.
Not only does yoni steaming invite your body to release physical toxins, it encourages your mind and body to release emotional toxins too. And as a woman, you store emotional toxins – like stress, sadness and trauma – in your womb. Painful memories, emotional scars and self-doubts persist in our bodies as emotional toxins. Being the miraculous vehicle for life that it is, the human body stores these emotional toxins in energetic centers that can be found within your physical body. There, they create blockages that stifle success, hinder our creativity, drive and intuition, and even contribute to disease. Yoni steaming comforts and relaxes the mind and body, reducing anxiety and inviting in an enhanced sense of wellbeing. It also releases any stored emotions and soothes your nervous system… leaving you relaxed, de-stressed and generally happier.
Many women experience an erratic cycle and an unpredictable flow, making their monthly moon time less than enjoyable. Fortunately, yoni steaming is a simple home treatment that is known to help reduce pain, bloating and exhaustion associated with menstruation, regulate irregular or absent cycles, increase fertility and speed healing in the postpartum period. It is also known to treat aspects of abnormal uterine pathology such as uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, uterine weakness, uterine prolapse and endometriosis. Women who practice yoni steaming find that the practice can help get their cycles are back on track within a couple of months. Regulated periods are often shorter, and lighter. Thank goodness!
Yoni steaming is a tried and true remedy that has been passed down for generations among women. Why? Because it works, and women’s lived wisdom is as legitimate as any scientific study will ever be. Yoni steams have been used throughout history to support women’s reproductive health, and are still commonly used by women in Bhutanese, Indonesian, Indian and Mayan cultures, among others. Particularly in Mayan and Korean culture, the practice is still revered as an integral part of women’s health today. Dr. Rosita Arvigo, ND is a naprapathic doctor and teacher of Maya medicine who lived and studied with Mayan healers in Belize for nearly 30 years. During her time working with local healers, she gained an intimate understanding of the long history and amazing benefits of vaginal steaming, locally referred to as a “bajo.” She later incorporated vaginal steaming into her Arvigo Techniques of Mayan Abdominal Therapy philosophy, and many credit Dr. Arvigo for bringing this ancient women’s health practice to the United States.
In 2015, everyone’s favorite crunchy celebrity, Gwyneth Paltrow touted the benefits of yoni steaming on her lifestyle blog called goop. She shared that the experience – which she calls v-steaming – was an “energetic release” and suggested that everyone try it! Since then, yoni steaming has been raved about by Khloe Kardashian, Chrissy Teigan, Cosmopolitan Magazine, and many more.
So, do yourself a favor: Gather your Yoni stream herbs and set aside some time to steam your vagina. Trust us, you won’t regret it. At the very least, you’ll have enjoyed a blissful self-indulgence, and you’ll have a story to share.
Anytime we give ourselves and our precious bodies a treatment at home, we should be sure to do our research and listen to our intuition. As you consider trying a yoni steam at home, be aware that a yoni steam should not be done under certain circumstances, including: in the case of pregnancy, during menstruation, or with any kind of intrauterine device (IUD). It is also wise to avoid yoni steaming in the case of an acute infection, illness or fever, or in the case of open wounds or inflammation. Finally, exercising simple caution during yoni steaming will help you to avoid burns. Never yoni steam with a continuous heat source, and test the temperature of the steam with the back of your hand before exposing your sensitive vaginal tissue. The steam should feel pleasantly warm, and you should immediately move away from the steam if it feels too hot.

You love your yoni. Why wouldn't you? Your beautiful vagina brings you joy and pleasure, but it can also bring suffering when everything isn't functioning at its best. You want your yoni to be healthy so that you can enjoy the luscious wonders she has to offer!
Its time to offer this extraordinary part of your body some extra special love, and here's how:
Ensure that you're paying attention first to your overall health, because it plays a major role in the health of your vagina. Take a look at the entire toxic load your body has to deal with, both physically and emotionally. Where can you reduce stress and anxiety in your life? How can you address emotional triggers or support yourself to release stored emotions you've been holding on to? Next, ensure that you are eating a light and healthy diet that is low in sugar (especially refined sugars). Avoid alcohol and caffeine, and emphasize essential fatty acids, probiotics, and tissue-healing nutrients such as zinc, vitamin A and vitamin E.
The warm, moist and sweet environment of your vagina is the perfect breeding ground for bacteria - both the good guys, and the bad guys. To keep good guys healthy and the bad guys in check, do your best to stay relatively dry down there. Wear cotton underwear since it breathes and absorbs moisture, and feel free to go commando while you sleep to make sure your lady parts are able to get a breath of fresh air!
Since bacteria plays an important role in keeping your vagina healthy, its important to support a balance of the good guys. Systemic antibiotics can severely disrupt you natural bacteria (the "good guys"), which creates the perfect breeding ground for the "bad guys"/ This, in turn, can cause bacterial vaginosis or candida/yeast overgrowth. You can help ensure that your vagina is filled with excellent flora by eating yogurt and fermented foods like kimchi or kombucha, and taking an probiotic supplement. A fantastic probiotic supplement is
Some studies have shown that douching can increase your risk for infections, pelvic inflammatory disease, and STDs. So rather than forcefully invading your lady parts with water, try a gentle herbal steam for a similar effect without the risk. Just as herbal steam clears nasal congestion, the warmth and moisture of the yoni steam increase circulation and thin mucus, while the medicinal properties of the herbs are absorbed through the porous external tissue and transported via the bloodstream, safely and effectively cleansing, toning and revitalizing the female reproductive system. The results are reduced menstrual cramps, improved fertility, and a happier vagina overall. Make sure to always use organic yoni steaming herbs.
Synthetic fragrances and dyes can be very aggravating to your vaginal health, causing inflammation, rashes and improper pH balance which contributes to bacterial infections. If you're going to use soap on your labia (hint: some naturopathic doctors recommend not ever using soap there!), make sure it contains 100% naturally occurring ingredients (like vegetable oils, essential oils, herbal extracts, etc). Make sure your soap of choice is not alkalizing or antibiotic. The same goes for the detergents you use to wash your clothes and sheets.
Ensuring that the pubococcygeus (PC) muscle, which supports the pelvic bowl, is strong helps to tighten the vagina, improve sensitivity and increase lubrication. Kegel exercises, which tone the PC muscle, can be done while working at your desk, reading on the couch or even standing in line at the grocery store. You can identify your kegel muscle by practicing stopping the flow of urine midstream. Then, to perform the kegel exercise, squeeze the PC muscle repeatedly for five minutes. Doing this once per day will result in a myriad of benefits for your reproductive and sexual health! Remember to breathe while you flex those muscles.
To ensure a good body pH, which is the acid/alkaline balance, drink 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar mixed with 1 teaspoon of honey in a 1/4 cup warm water once per day. You can also apply diluted apple cider vinegar to your vagina in case of imbalance (to do so, add a 10% solution to a peri-bottle and rinse the exterior of your vagina twice daily).
Yes, we all know condoms prevent unwanted pregnancy, but did you know that using condoms can help keep your vagina’s pH level healthy so that the good bacteria (lactobacilli strands) can survive in there? Having your partner wear a condom can also help prevent yeast infections, UTIs, and bacterial vaginosis.
Yeast infections can be caused by a host of triggers, including emotional stress, poor diet, hormonal changes, vaginal irritations or some prescription medications. If you experience itching, irritation, thick discharge, inflammation or redness, you may have some degree of a yeast infection. If you are experiencing a foul smell accompanied by a thin white or grey homogeneous discharge, you may be dealing with bacterial vaginosis.
Natural remedies are effective, but they take some commitment on your part. A great place to start is with a garlic suppository. To try this remedy, simply peel one clove of garlic and then place it in the center of a thin piece of gauze. Twist the corners into a tail, rub a bit of olive oil onto the tip, and then insert deep inside your vagina. Remove the suppository and insert a fresh one ever 3-5 hours until the infection is gone (hopefully 3-5 days). Garlic is highly anti-microbial, so it is extremely effective for clearing the infection. Just make sure to wash your hands well before making and inserting your suppository!
By restoring not only the physical but the energetic balance in your yoni, you will heal spiritual fractures and renew your relationship with the sacred feminine. The excellent book Wild Feminine: Finding Power, Spirit, & Joy in the Female Body offers a unique, holistic approach to reclaiming the power, spirit, and joy of your beautiful female body and to understanding its connection to creative energy flow. Through stories, visualizations, and creative exercises, the wisdom arising from the female body has been distilled into this beautiful guide to nurturing, healing, and exploring the feminine nature.
