A yoni steam is a type of steaming that you can do at home. The idea behind yoni steam is that it heals your womb by detoxing your uterus, and renews it by decreasing reproductive tract infections that cause itching and pain. Yoni steams also increase circulation to the pelvic region, soothe cramping or decrease menstrual flow, and help with a variety of other issues related to menstruation including infertility.
Vaginal steaming has been referred to as bajo, chai-yok, or a yoni steaming. Yoni is the Sanskrit word for womb or vagina.
