To prepare the herbal steam: In a medium to large pot, soft boil 10 cups of water with the lid on. Once boiling, add 1 heaping tablespoon of herbal mixture, keep covered, and let simmer for five minutes, reducing heat to medium-low. After 5 min, turn the heat off, keep covered and let steep for 10 minutes to brew & cool. Once you are ready to transport this warm herbal solution to the v-steam location, make sure the water is not too hot -- as you don't want to burn yourself. Vaginal and reproductive tissue are topically sensitive to heat. The intention of the v-steam is to be able to sit for the desired length of time of 30 minutes to receive the therapeutic benefits that the herbs have infused into the water and steam.
Warning: It's best to not do Vaginal Steams when pregnant or menstruating, when using an IUD, or within ten days of giving birth.
