Yoni steaming involves exposing the vagina to steam to cleanse and enhance health. The practice provides a variety of benefits, ranging from relieving period discomfort to improving fertility, clearing trauma and increasing sex drive.

How does it work?

The warmth of the Rongoa herbal steam softly permeates the exterior of the vagina. During the process, which should last for about 20 to 40 minutes, the steam dilates the blood vessels, increasing blood circulation, providing oxygen, and relaxing the pelvic floor muscles.

Yoni steams bring heat to the womb. The combination of Rongoa and herbs have been selected purposefully adding layers of different healing benefits. The combination works to nourish, tone, heal, bring in fresh oxygenated blood, and promote cleansing. The moist heat opens the pores of the tissues it comes into contact with. The water vapour carries the medicinal benefits of the plants, which is absorbed into the tissues, enters the bloodstream, and has a direct healing effect on the reproductive system.

Vaginal tissue is one of the most absorbent of the entire female body.
