WHEN IS THE BEST TIME OF DAY TO VAGINAL STEAM?
Although you can steam at any time of the day, it is best to steam at night right before bed. Keep in mind that steaming is a body detoxification that might make you feel very relaxed or tired afterwards. For this reason, sleeping after a vaginal steam session can be very deep and rewarding.
HOW DO I KNOW WHICH VAGINAL STEAM HERBS TO CHOOSE?
By scheduling a consultation with Camel Glo. I would HIGHLY recommend doing a consultation because if you choose herbs that are not best suited for your body, it may be counterproductive.
WHAT KIND OF BOWL DO I VAGINAL STEAM WITH?
Best options are glass, ceramic, or stainless steel. You don't want to use anything that could potentially release toxic chemicals into your body.
CAN I USE ESSENTIAL OILS TO VAGINAL STEAM?
No. Essential oils are very potent and can be too harsh on the body.

Yes! You can steam as often as you'd like! If negative side effects begin to occur you should cut back. It is never okay to steam when you are experiencing a contraindication
CAN I REUSE YONI STEAM HERBS?
Yes! You may use a reusable tea bag or strain the herbs after steeping them and before sitting over them. Store them in the refrigerator for a 2nd use. Herbs will be good for another 1-2 days. Herbs may be used a third time but the properties most likely are very weak by this time.

Yes. The herbs have a userguide with info on how to prepare the herbs and how to setup for a steam session without a sauna

WHICH VAGINAL STEAM HERBS ARE BEST FOR MENARCHE (ADOLESCENCE) OR BEFORE MY DAUGHTERS PERIOD STARTS?
Before the period starts (up until the age of 12 and a half), use the Gentle Herbs.
After the period starts the Cleansing Herbs would be best unless one of the other blends suits her more (i.e. if she has infections she should have the Disinfecting Herbs, etc.)
If a girl starts her period before the age of 12, the Gentle Herbs would be best for her. She should steam after each period and the week before her period is due. This *might* help her period go away. If it does, she should continue to steam once a month with the Gentle Herbs to keep it from coming on again.
If a young lady is 14 or older and her period has not started yet, use the Cleansing Herbs.
ARE THE VAGINAL STEAM HERBS SAFE WHILE BREASTFEEDING?
The Cleansing, Gentle and Cooling herbs are all entirely safe for breastfeeding.
The Disinfecting Herbs are full of drying herbs. Though there have not been any cases of a decrease in supply, it might be best to avoid them.
Although lavender (a drying herb) is in the Cleansing Herbs, the drying action of the herb is balanced out by other herbs in the mix that are moisturizing. This blend has been used safely by at least 50 postpartum breastfeeding moms without any influence on breastmilk. If anything, some of the mothers have reported that vaginal steaming has increased their milk supply.
