Traditional Vaginal Steam is a healing practice that involves sitting over a steaming pot of herbal water to help cleanse and heal the vagina and uterus.
V-steaming can be used to help postnatal mothers recover from childbirth and improve overall reproductive and vaginal health. It is said to help with pain, bleeding, and inflammation, as well as improve circulation and tone in the pelvic area.
There is currently little scientific evidence to support the effectiveness or safety of v-steaming. Some experts warn that the practice could cause burns or infections, or lead to an increase in uterine prolapse. It is important to consult with a healthcare professional before trying v-steaming.
The frequency of v-steaming may vary depending on the individual’s needs and the guidance of a healthcare professional. It is not recommended to do it more than once a week.
Some herbs that are commonly used in v-steaming include mugwort, wormwood, rosemary, basil, and oregano. However, it’s important to note that it’s not advisable to use any kind of herbs without proper guidance and research as certain herbs can be harmful.
Mothers may wear a long skirt or dress made of breathable, natural fabrics such as cotton or linen. It is important to choose clothing that is comfortable, loose-fitting, and allows for easy movement, as well as breathable enough to allow for proper air circulation.
