Blossom Yoni Steams

Developed by Carol for use with Womb & Fertility Massage Therapy™, this range of yoni steams also work beautifully as a treatment on their own. Yoni steams increase circulation and energy flow, restoring vitality and integrity to the tissues. The botanical infused vapours open up the highly absorbent pores of the vulva, allowing their medicinal benefits to be delivered deeply into the blood stream of the pelvis. Only the highest quality wild crafted and organic aromatic herbs are used to create the eight Blossom Steam blends, whose various medicinal properties are known to be toning, relaxing, cleansing, revitalising, uplifting, restorative or balancing, as well as in some cases naturally antibacterial, antiviral, antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory.

HOW TO PREPARE YOUR YONI STEAM
Choose your Blossom Steam. Place the herbs in a pot with 2 Litres of lukewarm water, asking the plants and water to help you heal. Bring to a gentle simmer with the lid on for 10 minutes, leave to cool for 10 minutes.
Create your ceremonial steam space indoors or out – whatever works for you – and make sure you will not be disturbed for about an hour.
Pour your steam water into a large bowl, or crock pot to retain heat in winter, and place under a modified chair or steam stool, or use the floor sitting method.
Remove your clothes from the waist down, leaving your socks on, keeping your upper body warm and sit comfortably and open yourself up to the steam.
Drape your lower body with blankets that extend all the way to the floor to ensure the steam is contained. Be careful not to burn yourself, if necessary, create a small vent to allow excess steam and heat to escape.
Sit over the steam for about 20 minutes, then dry off, dress warmly and rest quietly for another 20 minutes. Release the herbs and water back to the earth, giving thanks.

Yoni is the symbol of the Hindu Divine Mother: the goddess Shakti, meaning place of birth, source, origin, sacred space. Although the yoni is considered to be an abstract representation of the creative force that moves through the entire universe, rather than being the physical genitals – the Sanskrit word for that is yonideśa – in tantric texts such as the Kama Sutra, yoni is used instead as a mark of respect.
