Vaginal Steam Bath Herbs
High Quality Organic Herbs
The vaginal steam bath is used for preventing infection, relaxing the pelvic floor, vagina & hips; and for helping the uterus contract back to non-pregnant size. It assists in closing the cervix by tightening up tissues, releasing dead cells, and provides necessary warmth to the reproductive organs.
Steam opens the pores, allowing the beneficial herbs to penetrate into the bloodstream.
