How to Do Yoni Steaming To do a yoni steam, you will need a bowl or pot of hot water and a selection of herbs. Bring the water to a boil and add the herbs to the pot. Popular herbs for yoni steaming include chamomile, lavender, rosemary, and calendula. Once the herbs are added, let the water cool for a few minutes before sitting over the pot. You can drape a towel over your lower half to create a steam tent and to keep the steam in. Relax and breathe deeply for 15-20 minutes, taking care not to burn yourself. It’s important to note that yoni steaming should be done with caution and under the guidance of a trained practitioner. If you have a vaginal infection or are pregnant, you should avoid yoni steaming.
