What is it and why would anybody want to do that?
A fad emerged a few years ago that involved sitting on a “throne” that delivered steam and herbs into your vagina. Apparently poaching yourself works all kinds of miracles like balancing hormones, regulating periods, cleansing from the inside out, and perhaps will even save the world. There is actually no evidence that this works and the physical steam delivered to your parts can’t actually travel through the physical tissue to get to the areas it is supposed to be “curing.” Your vagina has its own built-in oven that doesn’t go out of its way to overheat your insides. When you intentionally overheat your vagina it can provide the perfect environment for bacteria which can cause yeast infections; and you see where I am going with this.
Did you know that your vagina has a built-in oven and washing machine?
Though vaginal steaming is apparently a centuries-old tradition, poaching your bits is a fad and can cost a lot of money for scorched petals and medication to help treat any mishaps.
Imagine your bits as a flower, with delicate petals protecting it on the outside and a beautiful bloom on the inside. What do you think happens when you add hot steam to that flower?
Who and why are people telling women to do this?
Who has led us women to believe that we are not clean, that we smell? Who is it that is telling us that we need to scrub our delicate bits like we would a bathroom floor, or steam our insides the way we prepare our vegetables? Celebrities are the worst culprits for these fads. Doctors I hear also have referred their patients to various soaps for “down there”. And, let’s not forget those being paid off by big industry to have us believe we are not clean. It’s pretty basic math – use a soap, get irritated, start itching, produce a ton of yeast and then go get your prescription.
Ladies, you are not unclean. Let your own personal washing machines do what they were placed there by Mother Nature to do. Use cool water down there. Gently pull outer labia aside and allow cool water to flow through. If you are hell bent on using soaps, just remember to rinse thoroughly.
At Queen Bee, we recommend using cool or warm water to clean inside your delicate flower. For removal of dead skin, excess oil, and bacteria, check out our top-notch Queen Bee skincare line, specifically Buzz Off Bumps, designed to prevent ingrown hairs and acne.
