How to Reduce Menstrual Cramps by Yoni Steaming

As a teenager, I missed many days of school because my cramps were excruciating. I would spend most of my day curled up on the floor crying. My mother would offer me pain medications but at the time, swallowing a pill was completely out of the question. This carried on into my adult-hood. During my cycle, I would completely clear my schedule so that I could curl up on the sofa and tolerate the pain all day. I have never been a big fan of medications, so I would tolerate the pain, nausea and hot flashes for days.

As an adult, I tried to take medications like Pamprin and Midol to ease the pain, but these medications made me feel sleepy and jittery. I had to find another alternative.

I began to research natural ways to ease my pain and this is when I discovered the yoni steam. I googled a location near me that had a yoni steam blend available for purchase. At the time, I resided in Vidalia, GA and the nearest yoni steam blend that I could find was sold by a lady named Cherica Jones (The Yoni Lady) in Savannah, GA. I contacted her and made a trip her way.

She shared with me a lot of information on how the yoni steam can help support womb health. I was fascinated and purchased my blend right away. I did not have a yoni steaming chair so I had to steam another way.

For a yoni steam you will need:

  1. A medium-large sized pot
  2. Herbal blend
  3. Heat resistant bowl
  4. Blanket
  5. Sanitized toilet
  6. Candles (optional)
  7. Relaxation music (optional)

How to prepare:

  1. Fill a pot almost full of water
  2. Add herbal blend
  3. Steep herbs for approximately 15-20 minutes
  4. Pour the contents of the pot into a heat resistant bowl
  5. Lift the seat on your toilet
  6. Place bowl in the toilet (a large bowl will fit perfectly)
  7. Let down seat lid
  8. Remove your clothes or bottoms and sit over the herbs allowing the steam to penetrate the womb area. If temperature is too hot, let cool to prevent burning.
  9. Wrap blanket around you to trap in steam.
  10. Sit until yoni steam cools.

 

After doing this only twice, my cramps went away. Yoni steaming can also regulate your cycle and minimize your cycle days. If your cycle lasts longer than usual, yoni steaming may be a great fit for you. Do not yoni steam while on your cycle.

Herbs are potent medicine. Herbs in yoni steams support the health of the wound and can naturally combat conditions such as yeast infections, fibroids, endometriosis and odor. Steaming is also great for postpartum child birth.

Yoni steaming is a time where I am focused on me. I light candles, play zen music, diffuse an essential oil and relax. This is YOU time! Self care is so important ladies. We give so much of ourselves and many have traumatized wombs from past hurts. Steaming is a great way to detox and re-balance.

It can be beneficial to yoni steam once a month to support womb health.

What The Heck Is A Yoni Power Hour?!

June 24, 2017 I attended a yoni power hour in Savannah, GA. For starters let’s talk about what a Yoni is. I did a poll on my Facebook page asking people on my friends list whether or not they knew what a yoni was. To my surprise, many had no idea.

A yoni is the vulva, especially as a symbol of divine procreative energy conventionally represented by a circular stone.

Are you shocked? Well, if you are count to 10 because we are about to talk about that “private area” for just a moment. More and more women are gravitating towards these type of events and researching because they are looking for a natural way to care for their yoni.  Many women suffer from different dis-eases and have sought medical attention. Many women have also had a hysterectomy due to many complications.

Yoni events address these issues and how we as women find ourselves dealing with these complications. Yoni eggs, yoni steaming herbs, yoni detoxes, natural pads and so much more are discussed as well.

I really enjoyed meeting women from all walks of life who have an interest in many of the things that I am interested in. Natural products, herbs, sister bonding, networking, sensual movements and so much more are available and experienced at these events. The ladies are always willing to educate you on living a healthier lifestyle.

I attended the Rose Quarts Yoni Egg  Retreat in April and that was an experience for me. It was fun, emotional and so needed at that very moment in my life.

Read about my Rose Quarts Yoni Egg Retreat Here.

I took a friend with me and I call her my pisces sister because we are both pisces. This was her first experience at a yoni event. She had an awesome time.

Another one of my followers also showed up. I was like whooooohooooo……I love love love to see women taking control of their health. I also love to see women coming together and there isn’t anything but love in the building. The energy/vibe is everything.

In a time where envy has become so major among women, you do not feel this in any way at these events. You can be open, silly, ask questions without being embarrassed and you feel welcomed by people you don’t even know. I love it! If only we could get that vibe among women outside of the yoni events.

Can you imagine how much easier it would be to accomplish something as women if we supported each other?

I created a little slideshow of the yoni party with the images that were taken from the other attendees. My phone was dying, bummer, and I broke my new camera that I got for my birthday on March 2nd at the Vidalia Onion Festival fair. Another bummer . 😒

Oh well, I can’t cry over spilled milk so I did what I could do so that I could share it with everyone else!

 

 

Have you ever attended a yoni event?

 

What Is The Hype With Yoni Steaming?

*Disclaimer: This post is not designed to, and should not be construed to, provide medical advice, professional diagnosis, opinion or treatment to you or any other individual, and is not intended as a substitute for medical or professional care and treatment.

As I have been on a journey of self awareness and taking care of my mind and body, I came across some yoni health articles. A yoni is the vulva (a sacred space).

Realistically, many women deal with issues that result in them taking many medications and still find no long term relief in what they are dealing with. I prefer to go the natural route in caring for my body as I believe the earth can provide many healing properties for our bodies.

I am not a doctor and do not pretend to be but in my home I choose to treat myself naturally and it works! Medications are my absolute last resort.

I began to look into yoni steaming as I read that it could relieve me of my terrible cramps that came along with my cycle. I began to read more on it and watched some reviews on YouTube.

What is yoni steaming?

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.

What are some of the benefits of yoni steaming?

It reduces pain, bloating and exhaustion associated with menstruation.

• Decrease menstrual flow as well as reduce dark purple or brown blood at the onset or end of menses.

• Regulate irregular or absent menstrual cycles.

• Increase fertility, especially when combined with Mayan abdominal massage.

• Speed healing and tone the reproductive system after birth.

• Treat uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, uterine weakness, uterine prolapse and endometriosis.

• Assist with the repair of a vaginal tear, episiotomy or C-section scar.

• Assist with the healing of hemorrhoids.

• Treat chronic vaginal/yeast infections, and works to maintain healthy odor.

• Relieve symptoms of menopause.

• Detoxify the womb and remove toxins from the body.

You can turn your toilet into a yoni steaming throne right at home!

I chose this option because it is easy and convenient. I hope to someday purchase a yoni steaming seat but for now, I am using the toilet throne.

The Toilet Throne

What you’ll need:

  • A toilet
  • A natural toilet bowl disinfectant and brush cleaner
  • A wide-rimmed stainless steel or glass mixing bowl
  • A large towel or blanket

To turn your toilet into a throne:

  1. Give your toilet bowl and seat a good scrub. You will feel yucky attempting to do this on a dirty toilet.
  2. Next, prepare your water and yoni steaming herbs. Carefully pour your herbs into the mixing bowl and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  3. Place the mixing bowl with the water and herbs into the basin of your toilet bowl. Close the seat (but not the lid). CAUTION: Make sure your bowl of herbs fits completely inside the toilet bowl basin before closing the lid and sitting down. Sitting down on a glass bowl that is too large for the toilet basin may result in broken glass.
  4. Sit down on your toilet as you normally would. If the steam feels too hot open your legs or stand up to allow the water to cool.
  5. Relax and enjoy!

I have only done the yoni steaming twice in the past year and will began to do it more often. I first had a problem with locating the herbs within my small community but I recently took a trip to Savannah, GA. and googled for stores that sold yoni eggs. I came across a lady by the name of Cherica who is CEO of Fearlessly Loving Your Yoni.

My husband and I met with her and talked about the yoni eggs and I ended up purchasing some yoni steaming herbs. I will purchase an egg later when I decide which one is best for me.

I followed the above steps to sanitize my toilet, lit some candles and played soothing music. I have had great results from my yoni steaming and will continue to do it. I no longer deal with PMS and I do not have excruciating cramps that shut me down during my cycle. I am able to be active and productive.

Check out Cherica herself as she explains her experience in yoni health.
