Especially nourishing herbs like nettle, dandelion root, and burdock root which can be take daily and will aid in healing what may be ailing you. We also advise that you do your own research and do what feels in alignment with your health care needs and goals.

It wasn’t that long ago that women thought of our vaginas as “dirty” and something we didn’t want to think about “down there.” We now know vaginas are self-cleaning, miraculous and beautiful centers of our power. Vaginal steaming is not about washing. Think of it as a relaxing way to optimize your physical and mental health, your center of power, your miraculous source of babies, pleasure and female power. Most commonly, vaginal steaming is used by midwives in other countries for postpartum care right after a woman has a baby.
