Vaginal steam baths are used in many different cultures to help with a variety of conditions related to female digestive and reproductive health. They are cleansing, toning, and nourishing for the cervix, uterus, and vaginal tissues and bring heat to the womb and pelvic floor. The moist heat used during the process helps to open the pores of the tissues so that the medicinal properties of the herbs can be more readily absorbed. These herbs also have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties which can be useful in reducing overall body and vaginal swelling.
They can be helpful for:
• Dark blood at the beginning or end of a menstrual cycle
• Postpartum or post miscarriage
• Bladder and yeast infections
• Irregular and painful menstrual cycles
