When I was a young woman I knew little about how to take good care of my Yoni. Neither had I encountered this beautiful, poetic naming of the feminine sexual organ.
The Yoni represents the female genitalia in Sanskrit and it is a sign of generative power and symbolizes the goddess Shakti.
With time and some studies in feminine medicine, I have become more aware of how I can take care of my self in a natural and effective way, and I would like to share some of
this information with you today.
Yoni wash and bath
When we regularly wash and treat the Yoni with herbal infusions we help the body to keep the desired ph-levels and we prevent infections and irritations.
It is also important to eat food that are alkaline and to avoid to eat sugar and processed food if we experience any discomfort. Sugar and processed foods like bread, pasta, pastry and candy will feed fungus and bacteria.
To wash the Yoni on a regular basis you can use water and apple cider vinegar. The best vinegar to use is unpasteurized. Use 1 table spoon for 1 Liter of water.
You can also use a vaginal shower that you can find in an enema kit at the pharmacy.
It is beneficial for the health of the Yoni, and for our well-being to make regular Yoni baths. You can do them at the end of you period, each week or when you feel the need. It is an intimate moment of relaxation and connection with yourself and your body.
1. First you prepare the herbal infusion. Boil 2 liters of water and add 2 handfuls of dried herbs like Lavender, Calendula, Basil, Malva. When you have problems with Candida it is beneficial to use Chamomill as a treatment. Dont use Chamomill if you don't have candida.
2. It is recommended to do one per week when you have any discomfort. If you don't have any discomfort but want to keep the yoni healthy, you can do it just before or after your period.
3. Pour the herbal infusion in a large plastic or ceramic bowl, big enough for you to sit in it. Add cold water until you have a comfortable warm temperature.
Sit down in the infusion and make sure the rest of your body is warm. Use this moment for meditation and relaxation.
Yoni wash after making love
Traditional ways for women to “detach” from the energies that are shared when making love would be to first make a pee, then bath the vagina in cold water and herbal infusions and then lastly smoke them selves and the Yoni with cleansing herbs. This was also to avoid any infections after making love.
This may seam like a long procedure, so a recommended shorter one would be to first make a pee, then wash the vagina with a mix of apple cider vinegar, water and salt with a vaginal shower.
For one Yoni wash you use 1 table spoon of salt and one spoon of apple cider vinegar in 1 Liter of water.
