Vaginal/Yoni Steaming is the ancient and universal practice of sitting or squatting over a bowl or pot filled with medicinal herbs and steaming water. The steam becomes of medicinal benefit after the herbs have infused into the hot water. Women generally sit on a special chair, stool or steam box. A blanket, cloak or a long skirt is used to keep the steam from dissipating into the air. The time frame that a woman sits over the steam depends on several factors such as her cycle length and if she falls into any of the sensitive categories.
