Sacred Waters Steam Therapy & Womb Care by Toussaint Tinctures




Spring is around the corner and so is the yearly tradition of spring cleaning. What better way to start this year’s “spring cleaning” than to do a spring steam with Sacred Waters Steam Therapy by Toussaint Tinctures certified vaginal steam practitioner, Lea Afia Tutu. Recently certified by the Peristeam Hydrotherapy Institute founded by master steamer Keli Garza and Kris GonzalezI, her certification has given her full knowledge of the proper ways to facilitate basic steam plans for individuals based on their menstrual cycle. But before we get into that let’s talk a bit about the unknown phenomenon of perineal steaming a.k.a. vaginal steaming. 

a self-care ritual practiced by ancient and indigenous cultures all over the world

What is vaginal steaming you may ask. It is a self-care ritual practiced by ancient and indigenous cultures all over the world to aid women during their post-partum period, and in some cultures to address issues apart from pregnancy to assist with sexual wellness and comfort. And is still used today in those cultures. However, steaming was introduced in the U.S. around 2013 via Steamy Chick, Tikkun Spa and later began to trend after Gwyneth Paltrow post praise.


Demystify the Steam


Vaginal steaming is the act of taking plant herbs and boiling them in water to create a medicinal tea that you later sit over using a special chair or position to utilize the prepared steam bath. The steam then rises and enters the body through the vagina and begins the process of loosening debris while simultaneously distributing the medicinal properties from the plants into the tissues of the vagina, cervix and uterus. Steaming can address a variety of issues from menstrual cramps, PMS, bacterial and yeast infections, cysts, fibroids, irregular discharge, vaginal dryness, hot flashes, night sweats, fertility, uterine and rectal prolapse, vaginal and urethra toning and much more. Emotionally, steaming can also aid in healing emotional scars when paired with other therapies surrounding sexual abuse, emotional disconnection from one's body, and many other degrees of emotional wellness women may experience and would like to dispel concerning their bodies and sexual health practices. It is strongly encouraged to practice steaming for emotional healing in conjunction with seeing a therapist or professional in the area of mental/ emotional health in order to receive optimal results.
