Herbal Yoni Steam-Vaginal herbal steam baths referred to as chai yok in Korean or Bajos (pronounced ba-hoes) in Spanish, have many health benefits, restorative qualities and offer superb self-care. These steam baths nurture a woman's most sacred area: her vagina. The steam brings heat to the womb, encourages and maintains healthy fertility, helps to relieve painful menstruation, uterine fibroids, uterine adhesions, cysts, scar tissue internally and externally, uterine weakness and uterine or cervical prolapse. It restores the suppleness to the outer vagina while cleansing the inner. Herbs are added to the steam water to lend their properties to the process. The steam draws the herbal remedies into the vaginal tissues, which are extremely vascular and directly into the bloodstream, allowing for immediate healing to begin. Vaginal tissue is the most absorbent tissue in a woman’s body, so it makes perfect sense to focus there to support the reproductive system. The traditional assembly of bajos is to give direct access to the vagina, which cleanses the uterine membranes and vaginal tissue and helps to get rid of stagnant or incomplete emptying of menses during each cycle. You do not want to wear under garments when doing a vaginal steam. It is normal and healthy to have discharge and brown or pink bleeding after treatment. It can also be used to encourage regular menstruation. A gentle blend of self-care herbal satchels. Includes 3 satchels (3 yoni steams).
