“My grandmother’s friend introduced me to this. The earliest change I could see was fewer pains,” said Karabo Lekgau.

Karabo is the founder of “Yoni Loving” products – a specially crafted blend of natural herbs that are designed to cleanse tone and rejuvenate the womb. I got to speak to her to find out some information about Yoni Steaming.

What is Yoni Steaming/how does it work?

“Yoni steaming, also known as Vaginal steaming is an ancient natural practice meant to cleanse and heal the vagina, uterus, and the entire reproductive tract. It helps regulate menstruation, and ease period cramps, improve fertility, postpartum care, bloating and so much more. The process of Yoni steaming is simple and easy. All you do is just sit/ squat over a container of herbal-infused steam for 30 minutes. The warmth of herb-steam softly soaks through the outside of the vagina bringing warmth to the womb. This steam works in increasing blood circulation, providing oxygen, dilating blood vessels, and relaxing the pelvic floor muscles.”

Why have women decided to use Yoni Steaming?

“Women are tired of pills and synthetic “solutions” that provide temporary relief to their health issues. They come with different reasons as to why they want to start v-steaming but the overall of all their reasons is the disappointment in scientific “solutions” that don’t really work. Instead, some of these provide more trouble than they do helping women.”

What are the health benefits of yoni steaming?

“The list of benefits is long, 🙂 from providing gentle support to women’s wellness, regulating the menstrual cycle, assisting in increasing fertility, to getting rid of things like UTI, BV, Yeast infections. Long term benefits include: 

  • Uterine Prolapse – Dysmenorrhea (painful periods)
  • Increase fertility, conception preparation
  • Irregular menstrual cycles
  • Vaginal dryness and painful intercourse
  • Increase the effectiveness of IVF and IUI
  • Ovarian cyst. Fibroids. PCOS. Endometriosis 
  • Postpartum/ post-miscarriage 
  • relax the vaginal canal and cervix

The list is long as long as the history of the practice one might even say.” 

How are women responding to Yoni Steaming?

“The response has been great. More women want to learn about the practice, more women are opening to putting it to the test and those who have, are extremely happy with the results.”

Is it safe?

“The vagina is a self-cleaning organ but it’s not self-healing. Yoni steaming does more than just cleaning the vagina. It helps heal, cleanse, tone, and rejuvenate the vagina. People say a lot of things about a lot of things and yet companies like Gnova Biotec exist providing a range of Gynae products, we have Gyna Guard on the shelf at all drug stores, Canex and so many others. 

What I mentioned above are only synthetic products, Yoni steaming herbs are made from raw plants. As Yoni Loving, we specifically get our herbs from a certified organic herb supplier. I mention this to help one come to a better understanding of why we should never take things at face value but always do our own research and then make a decision. It’s important to hear people out and it’s just as important to research and have an opinion of your own about things before coming to a decision.”
