Herbal Vaginal Steaming
Vaginal steam baths, or“Bajos” (ba-hoes), as they are known in Spanish, are used to assist in the cleansing of the uterus in conjunction with the Abdominal Therapy for the treatment of numerous female symptoms.
Our plants are organic with clear intention of healing.
In a large pot, combine a gallon of water with 1c of your dried herbs. Bring this to a soft boil for 5 minutes; then steep for 10 minutes with the lid on.
Sit quietly over your pot of herbal steam for 20 minutes.
Meditate, read, enjoy and find pleasure in the herbal healing.
The heat should feel warming and pleasant.
If it is too warm, remove the pot for a few minutes.
Wear socks to keep your feet warm, draping fully with a blanket around your waist to the floor.
Be careful not to allow any draft underneath you.
Be sure you are enclosed by the blankets from the waist down, and something warm from the waist up.
After the vaginal steam bath, wrap yourself in the blanket allowing a time of rest and meditation.
Be careful not to allow cool drafts and temperature changes.
Depending upon the condition you are treating, vaginal steam baths are done prior to menses or just after.
Expect changes in your vaginal discharge and menstruation; these are normal cleansing reactions.
Inform your practitioner if you have any unusual discharge or response to this treatment.
