When I began this vaginal steaming journey, I was so excited and I wanted to start right away. My only dilemma was, what am I going to use to steam this "vajayjay" of mine?? I didn't want to use my toilet. That didn't feel very queen-like to me. (Even though it is a "throne," haha! Gosh, I'm so corny. Still, not my idea of a throne) I didn't have an old wooden chair to cut a hole in it. I didn't have a spare toilet seat top laying around to use over a non-plastic bucket, or anything of this nature. So, I decided to look online and try to buy a vaginal steaming seat made just for this purpose. Sounds logical enough, right? So, Amazon and Google, here I come!
When I tell you I was disappointed with these search results...man! I am going to need someone to tell me why a wooden box with a hole in the top of it costs upwards of $150-$400??! And there was even one seat, that was not really a steaming seat, basically just a wooden toilet seat top that you would have to put on top of something. It was a slab of wood with a hole in it. It costed $70!!
Needless to say, I was not going to spend that amount of money for a wooden seat. So, I had to put on my thinking cap. I went back to Amazon and this time I searched "wooden box." It took a while to find one that would be big enough and sturdy enough to use. Take a look, you can find it here. It only costed about $12.
I was so excited. I ordered it right away. It arrived two days later, in usual Amazon Prime fashion. I opened it up and as I was putting it together, I saw that there was one problem. The top piece was not thick wood like the rest of it. This was the piece that I was to sit on while steaming. It was a thin plywood. I didn't trust it to hold my royal butt. I needed stable and strong. So, I left it off and just assembled the rest without that piece. I then measured the box and it was 14 inches by 14 inches in diameter. It's seen here without the thin plywood piece.
I got dressed and told dear hubby that we needed to take a trip to The Home Depot to complete my vaginal steam seat. He looked a little concerned, but he didn't ask questions, just got the keys and headed out the door with my measurements in hand. He knows by now that I'm always up to something.
So, we got to The Home Depot and found a nice 1/2 thick piece of wood and had the employee cut it down for us to my measurements of 14 inches by 14 inches. It costed $5.
I was so excited! I was getting closer. Now I just had to find a guy with a jigsaw to cut the hole in the top. Ding! Hubby to the rescue once again. His good friend is a carpenter! So, we made it a day to go hang out with his friend and his friend's wife (who happens to be one of my best friends) and visit their sweet newborn baby boy. Ahhh talk about win win! I got my wood cut and got my baby fix in, at the same darn time. I also had him cut a small divot in the back of the steam seat box on the bottom, to allow my electric burner cord to be plugged in while I steam. (Read more about the use of the electric burner in the book, "Fertility Vaginal Steaming." The electric burner was cheap too, about $10. This is not a necessity, but it makes the steam session last longer, which allows for deeper healing to take place.)
And voila!! I have my own homemade wooden vaginal steam seat for less than $20! How awesome is that?! Here are some final pics for you. The first pic is showing you the little divot that I had him cut out for the electric burner cord. The second pic is the electric burner in the steam seat with the cord hanging out. The third pic is the steam seat with the lid. (P.S. I overestimated the size of my "vajayjay" on the lid, so it was cut just a little too big. Hence, the piece of cardboard and duct tape on there to make the hole smaller. Hey, duct tape fixes everything.) And finally, on the last pic you see the final product. It might not be all that pretty, but it gets the job done. And now I can get my hair done too!

Planning on starting a family can be one of the happiest times in a couple’s life. From conception to pregnancy, the process that both the mother and father undergo can be a challenging, happy and joyful – and a life changing journey to say the least. However if you experience complications, health issues, or difficulty conceiving, this natural process can become one of the most stressful, worrisome and exhausting times a couple may go through together.
For conception to occur the female must be producing viable eggs during her monthly cycle and the male’s sperm must be strong and healthy in order to fertilize the egg during intercourse. Infertility, which is quite simply the inability to conceive, is becoming more common and this “natural and simple” journey can be a difficult challenge given all the contributing factors to fertility. Factors such as diet, exercise, weight, health conditions, stress levels, emotional and mental states, genetics and a high toxic load in the blood stream all play a major part in determining ones ability to conceive.
How The Human Body Deals With Scar Tissue & How To Heal For Good
The fibrous tissue that the body creates to replace damaged skin is called a scar. Scars are also know as cicatrices and are formed as a biological response for repairing skin and other tissue damage in the human body. Although they are most often not considered pretty to look at, a scar is a natural part of the body's healing process. Every wound will result in some form of scarring depending on its severity. The human body's healing process tries hard to repair the skin but it does not get it completely right, so to say. Enzymes eat scar tissue and fibrosis. Fibrosis is scar tissue and most doctors learn in anatomy that it is fibrosis that eventually kills us all. As we age, which starts at 27, we have a diminishing of the body's output of enzymes. This is because we make a finite amount of enzymes in a lifetime and we use up a good deal of them by the time we reach our 40's.
Have you ever done a Vaginal Steam? If you’re not familiar with vaginal steams, get ready to be amazed! Vaginal steaming isn’t some kind of new fad or strange trend. Vaginal steaming is actually the most ancient form of female self care to revitalize the reproductive system.
Vaginal steaming is one of the oldest women's healing traditions. It is known by quite a variety of names such as V-Steams, Vagi-Steams, Yoni Steams, Bajos (which means "down low") amongst the Spanish and Mayans, and in Korea, it's referred to as Chai Yok. Mayan healers and midwives have used vaginal steams for centuries. You may also hear it referred to as womb spa or womb sauna.
So, what's it like? It's like a facial steam, but for your "vajayjay." Yes, I still say, "vajayjay." (side note: my hubby calls his penis the "vajohn." LOL)
Anywho...vaginal steaming is a powerful aid for increasing a woman’s vitality in regulating her menstrual cycle, relieving stress and depression, improving her intimate relationship, and most importantly, resolving reproductive disorders.
