This class focuses on the basics of self-care with respect to a healthy moon time. Specifically, we will discuss vaginal steams, self-directed uterine massage, and the plants that support a healthy menstrual cycle. I will talk about the herbs used for vaginal steams and formulas that promote tone and overall health with an emphasis on the plants of the area. I will bring my steam box and prepare some steams for participants to experience, as well as offer them outside of class. Clinically, vaginal steaming is extremely useful for women experiencing painful periods, clotting, pelvic congestion, fibroids and more.
