Yoni steaming, also known as vaginal steaming or v-steam,  is a sacred self-care practice that has been used by women for centuries to heal and tone the vagina. By applying gentle heat and moisture, herbal steam permeates the external vagina and carries medicinal plant properties to the tissues, increasing circulation. The plant medicines are absorbed into the bloodstream and circulated into the reproductive system where they help to stimulate healing.
