Vaginal Steaming.

Yoni steaming kit

V Steaming or Yoni steaming is a powerful ancient self-care practice used by women worldwide, to support deep wellness, women’s wisdom, herbal medicine, and feminine power.

Yoni steams, also referred to as V steams, vaginal steams, pelvic steams, chai-yok, or bajo’s, or any precious Tiger Lily name you give your vagina; are a part of ancient womanly healing arts that are coming to the forefront of women’s rituals and taking care of themselves on a deeper level.

V Steams (we will refer to them as), are holistic self-care practices in which a woman allows the warmth of herbal steam to permeate the exterior of her vagina gently. 

Note. The EXTERIOR of the vagina. 

I saw it once in an Indian movie where the Courtesan stood over a steaming bowl, dropped her layers of opulent fabric and squatted; before she entered the Kings chamber. 

Let’s face it. Between menstruation, sex and childbirth, our vagina does withstand quite a lot. Then we add a few changing hormones, exhaustion and a few sagging muscles.

Hallowed be the Vagina!

I’m hoping to unpack it here and be mindful to the lineage it holds in many cultures.

Secret Corner advocates absolute openness and freedom of sexuality on all of their platforms.

I have noted that V Steaming has leapt forward and given a myriad of names, and places and products are offered, lest we forget the origin of this sacred practice of keeping our vagina youthful, and enveloping the essence of being a woman at every stage of their lives

V Steaming has played a vital role in this practice over various cultures and over centuries. 

In keeping with the matriarchs of this ancient practice, we will take a look at the modernisation of Vaginal Steaming. Know what to look for and also be aware of the fads that there are out there.

Herbal blends can be harmful on various levels. We need to know that not only are we honouring our vagina, we need to ensure that we are not allowing any volatile scents and ingredients that are potentially dangerous to our precious Tiger Lily. The delicate tissue and what the vagina secrets over the different stages of our lives, or our weeks or months. These are hormonal changes that are in essence natural and we should not, on any accounts mess with what Mother Nature has given us in terms of our natural vaginal synergies.  

YONI – The Sanskrit word for the female genitalia, the womb and vagina. It is said to mean, “Sacred Place” – and our divine portal to life.

Other definitions that came up while researching were:

  • Pussy
  • Kitty
  • Glory hole
  • A source of addiction for even the most toughest of men
  • A tool women use to control  submission to insane demands

The Taoists referred to it as Golden Lotus, Gates of Paradise and this is the one I love – Precious Pearl. 

What Are The Benefits?

Vaginal Steaming has been said to have a host of benefits; cleaning the vagina, the uterus and the entire reproductive tract. 

Let it be said. Sadly, I do not concur in totality on the terminology used. It is seemingly leaning towards the vagina and or entire reproductive system not being clean? 

We focus on the intimacy of Vaginal Steaming as well as the benefits. 


So the emphasis is on steaming and the ritual of the beautiful blends of herbs, flowers and the warm scented steam rising between your thighs, your vaginal tissues soaking the benefits, soothing the muscles and rejuvenating the delicate and intimate tissue.

I have always said, we moisturise our faces, keep them healthy and pay infinite attention to our faces why not our pussy? 

Other Benefits:

  • Alleviate Stress and depression
  • Ease haemorrhoids
  • Helps with fatigue

We want that every day! I do anyway. To be able to soak up the luxury of scented steam floating upward and me soaking it all up. Indulge. It is an indulgent practice and I love it!

Before modern gynaecology began in the early 1800’s a women’s pelvic care was in the hands of traditional medicine women, Shamans and midwives. 

Sadly, along with women’s autonomy, vaginal steaming was lost.

Collectively, as women, things are changing. We need to rekindle the experiences, of the changes, of the pelvis, of women.

Vaginal Steams are a part of the Maya healing lineage. it has been popular in Central America, India, Eastern Europe  and Korea. Women commonly incorporated them as part of their self care rituals. 

This is nothing like “douching”, which  is a dangerous way of trying to, “clean”‘ the vagina.

Steaming is sitting over a chamber, a pot or a stool with your vagina seeping up the nourishing steam from your specifically blended, blend. This becomes an internal time. 

Pots or chambers or stools are made specifically for this journey. Cushions are created and all levels of comfort and indulgences are paid attention to.

Women are beginning to welcome this ancient tradition of Yoni Steaming. It feels so good and relaxing. It forces us to slow down and take it all in. 

Through all this attention to the vagina, the warmth, the scents and the steam. You are sated with a desire that you had not recognised before.

Challenges such as period pains, excessive flow and vaginal dryness caused by hormonal changes; are alleviated by Vaginal steaming. The steam carries dried organic herbs up to the tissues of the outer vagina (referrer to as the vulva). The warmth and moisture increases circulation to the vulva, like a flower, she will open up and receive the goodness. The exposed inner labial mucous membranes,  absorb the benefits resulting in a healthier, relaxed and bringing a deeper balanced connection to yourself.

Your pussy is now soft and moist and alive and ready to be stroked. 

Selecting Your Blends.

There would be different blends for different reasons you choose to steam.

The common key ingredients I have found are a combination of dried flowers, herbs and roots like:

  • Rose Petals
  • Lavender
  • Lily
  • Safflower
  • Chrysanthemum
  • Jasmine 

These alone conjure up the essence of feminity, desire and sensuality.

  • Rosemary is a volatile herb and should be used with caution
  • Citronella an incredible versatile oil, also known as an “optimistic oil”
  • Danshen Root is the root of Salvia miltiorrhiza and has been long used to treat vascular issues. Thus I believe will increase blood flow to the surface of the vagina, heightening sensation to touch.
  • Motherwart is a common herb has calming properties and very slight oestrogen.

V-Steaming and Infertility?

Let’s face it. When we enter into the league of discussing fertility, best we have our ducks in a row. 

As I am not qualified to give advice on medical issues. Specifically any gynaecological subjects; and having researched this subject thoroughly, what comes up repeatedly, is the use of herbal blends and the opening of the tubes and cleaning out of the reproductive area. 

I cannot condone this. As South Africans, our cultures are diverse; and in keeping with Secret Corner practice and protocol, we do not offer any medical advice. 

What I do want to say is that if you are indeed battling to conceive,  don’t take matters into your own hands.

Look into what your V-Steaming Blend contains, consult a specialist herbalist, get to know what works for YOU. We are all created differently. 

In terms of understanding your sexual health anatomy. Women menstruate, shedding the lining of the uterus. The cervix is the vault of the vagina, that soft little nubbin you feel with your fingers. That expands upward and becomes the uterus. 

There are many hormonal impact responses that can create a thickness or swelling or even blocking the natural flow of menstruation. This should be discussed with your Gynae.

We want to see Vaginal Steaming as the epitome of sensuality. Targeting that inner Goddess, the self love treatment for lower back pain, tired muscles. Period pains and general girl-stuff that makes us women.

I love my Vaginal Steaming ritual, my Tiger Lily feels rejuvenated and moist and full of life. I feel my stress slip away, I am relaxed and can feel the difference. 

Make this about your own personal journey, do what feels good for yourself.

By popular demand, there have been a few Yoni Steaming rituals and circles happening. Look out for them . Chat to your friends and we will be sure to keep you in the loop of all good things vaginal.
