Ingredients: calendula, chamomile, lavender, oregano, rose petals, raspberry leaf, sage, yarrow, comfrey, motherwort.
HOW TO STEAM: 1 oz per bag. Good for 1-2 steams.
1. Bring your herbs + water to boil. Simmer on the stove for 10-15min. This will bring out more of the essential oils in the plants. Be careful when you sit to not burn the sensitive tissues of your vulva! You will probably need to let it steam off for a few moments before you can sit over it.
2, Find a comfortable place to sit. Enjoy your steam for about 20 minutes. If you are able to, the ideal position is to squat. This brings the most open position to the pelvis, but may not be available for everyone or comfortable for long periods of time. You can also switch between squatting and kneeling while bending over with your elbows on the floor. Get creative here. There are also vaginal steam stools and chairs available to buy online. Make sure you wear socks and wrap the blankets closely around you and the pot, so all the heat stays inside.
3. Rest and nurture yourself afterwards, stay warm, drink some herbal tea and move slowly. Breathe this feminine nourishment into your womb and wise woman bones.
