What is Yoni Steaming?

Updated: Feb 12, 2023

Yoni steaming also known as vaginal steaming is a natural, gentle and holistic approach that has been used by people with vulvas for centuries. Cultures across the globe have steamed their vulvas with local herbs and flowers for fertility, postpartum healing, and feminine health. It is a process where a woman squats or sits over steaming water containing a blend of healing herbs.

In Tantric literature, the word Yoni means "female genitalia" but it also encompasses other meanings such as "womb and source". The yoni has served as a divine symbol across many ancient cultures and has long been accepted as the divine feminine power, one that is interconnected with the natural periodic cycles of the Moon and Earth.
