’You do what to your yoni?!’ I've heard some sisters whisper in absolute confusion around why the hell you would steam your vagina.
Well let me introduce you to the most profound holistic healing practice a woman could ever do for her womb & yoni….Vaginal steaming! which also has a fancy scientific term of peristeam hydroperathy.
