Some people believe vaginal steaming offers many health benefits and have called the practice a “facial” for the vagina. Some of the reported benefits of vaginal steaming include: reducing menstrual symptoms, such as bloating, cramps, exhaustion, and heavy bleeding, increasing energy and reducing fatigue

Many reproductive challenges such as menstrual cramps and infertility are caused when there is excess buildup 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 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.
