What is it and why would anybody want to do that?
To help my body detox, I love a good all-body steam. Not only can it help me lose a little weight, but it’s fantastic in helping relax my pores for clearer skin. Some years ago, a few celebs took steaming to the next level and raved about a new spa service. Poaching of their fresh dumplings at spas that offered “vaginal steaming chairs.” I’ll forgo the side of rice with that and instead explore why people are doing and recommending this.
Benefits (claims) of vaginal steaming
- Balances hormones
- Regulates periods
- Cleansing the inside and outside of your vagina
- Increases blood flow for a better sexual experience and general health
There’s no objective evidence to suggest that vaginal steaming works. Physical steam traveling inside your body does not travel through “physical” tissue to even touch any areas that the process claims to be “curing.”
Your vagina has its own built-in oven and washing machine, so it doesn’t go out of its way to overheat on purpose because it’s smart enough to regulate its own temperature. Intentionally overheating such a perfect eco-system can create other issues such as yeast infections – bacteria loves when you feed it!
Save your money and your delicate flowers
Growing up, my grandmother would call me “petal.” And throughout time, I’ve used this word as a term of endearment for the vagina area. Unfortunately, too frequently, I find myself saying, “what have you done to your precious little petals?” during a bikini wax. I am saddened that women have never been properly educated about vaginal health; we seem only to have been told that we “smell” and therefore are dirty. Alas, this could not be further from the truth.
Truthfully, basic knowledge of vaginal health is free and takes just minutes to explain. First, wash twice daily (if possible) in the morning and night. Use water inside and out and if you want to use soap, go for as natural as possible. Also, it’s essential to RINSE out of any nooks and crannies thoroughly. Then, gently pat your petals dry and have a blooming marvelous rest of your day.
