Welcome back to our blog! Today I wanted to talk briefly about some of my favorite herbs that I like to use for women health. This particular day is what I like to call yoni steam day! It comes twice a month and on those days I am most relaxed and in need of some self care. Now here are a few reasons I steam. Bad PMS, Bad cramps, heavy bleeding, back pain,& prolonged cycles. Those are my main reasons for steaming. Yoni steaming has so many benefits! I cannot stress that enough! Teas, yoni steams, capsules, blended with smoothies etc etc. Steaming is just the way I like to use some of these herbs. Below is a list of herbs that you can incorporate in your daily life (with the help of a herbalist) that could benefit you greatly.
RED RASPBERRY LEAF- Raspberry tones the lower body organs such as the pelvis muscles which helps to ease difficulties associated with uterine disorders.
BLESSED THISTLE- used to bring on suppressed cycles, eases menstrual tension and aches. Also helps regulate hormonal balance.
