Steam, it’s not just for your vegetables. It’s for your vagina.

Vaginal steaming, V-Steaming or V-Steam

What’s vaginal steaming and should you do it? Vaginal steaming also known as v-steaming, v-steam or traditionally as yoni steaming. It’s is a technique “…whereby a woman squats or sits over steaming water containing herbs such as mugwort, rosemary, wormwood and basil.” (1) This process is widespread and has been practiced throughout history by many cultures.

Why would someone steam or smoke their vagina? Would you hover your vulva over a steaming hot pot of water and herbs? The details may surprise you.

Clarycalm essential oils for your uterus

I am a skeptic. I’m not sure most of the products on the market work. Pharmaceutical products, natural products etc. and I love proving myself wrong. I started collecting essential oils when I became a Mom. I suddenly felt a burning desire to search for natural ingredients that have proven results. I always liked the way the oils smelled, but wanted to move past smell and into therapeutic use.

Therapeutic grade matters. Not all essential oils are the same. The process in which the oils are derived matters. Cold pressing typically produces therapeutic grade essential oils and any heating destroys the therapeutic properties. I have been drawn to doTerra oils because they do extensive testing and product therapeutic grade oils and blends.

Transgender Menstruation

Transgender Menstruation


Some menstruators are men. 

I want it to be clear on this website that all menstruators are welcome. So, welcome.

I live in a small town. In fact, I live in the part of the world often attributed to our recent president’s election success. The bigoted, heroin addicted armpit of the world that is definitely racist and unwilling to accept anything outside of what they consider to be the norm.

These are not my beliefs.

As a young woman, I was raised to accept everyone. If you don’t like someone, don’t like them because they’re an awful person. Not because of how they dress, who they love or what they believe. How you treat others, animals and the environment determines your ability to be labeled as a good or bad person. The end.

Measuring Cervix Height for Reusable Menstrual Cup

Measuring Cervix Height for Reusable Menstrual Cup

Measuring cervix height for reusable menstrual cup

When I first started researching menstrual cups, I wasn’t sure what to make of the measurements they list. I’m still amazed by the number of cups available and the different shapes, sizes and brands.

Why are the sizes important? Because women are different sizes internally. This is why many companies recommend that you measure your cervix before purchasing a cup to ensure that you get the right size. How is this accomplished?

Disposable Feminine Products are the New Smoking. Toxins in disposable pads

Disposable Feminine Products are the New Smoking. Toxins in disposable pads

Toxins in disposable pads

Our skin in the largest organ in our body. It breathes, sweats and also absorbs what we put on it. Toxins in disposable pads are near some of our most sacred and delicate skin. If you haven’t ditched chemically laced disposable pads, you need to immediately.

While we can speculate, many of the toxins in disposable pads are undisclosed by manufacturers. There is a medical device loop hole that disposable pad companies swim in and hide behind. (1) It’s despicable and disappointing.

Why won’t major manufacturers be forthcoming with disposable pad chemicals? Because they’re toxic and don’t belong anywhere near your vulva or vagina.
