There are so many interesting aspects of India.
In some of India’s Hindu temples and shrines are found the Yoni.
It’s the female genital symbol or what some of us women like to call the V-Jay Jay.
It has a triangle flower-like shape to it.
This symbol is worshipped and considered a form of spiritual fulfillment
thru the female spiritual energy.
The Yoni is used in Tantrism.
My Home V-Jay Jay Steam Facial
A) BASKET OF PAMPERING PRODUCTS: (so that things go smoothly I keep these things in a basket or pretty pail to carry in the room with me)
1 gallon of hot boiling water
1- Small Soft Towel
1- Large Towel
1- washcloth or paper towels (for clean up)
Herbs or any Herbal combinations (your choice of lavender, chamomile flower, stinging nettle leaf, Mugwort, basil, thyme, oregano, sage, rose petals)
Any Essential oils (your choice of a few drops of geranium, rose water, lavender, and lemon to add to the herbs)
Grooming kit (soft bristle baby brush and comb, small trimming scissors or hair removal cream)
1- a bottle of Bio-Oil or Castor oil (for outer skin)
1- a bottle of Almond, vanilla, coconut and jojoba oils (your choice of any combination for outer skin)
1- Scented candle or aromatherapy oil in a diffuser or nebulizer for room
Dim lights or light a salt lamp
Soft relaxing meditative music
1- a bottle of beautifully scented “Organic Breast Oil”
1-Tall 6-gallon Bucket (girly pretty and embellished)
1- Comfy soft pink toilet seat (hello kitty)
1- Pretty basin
1- Steel commode with frame and raised toilet seat
(A one time purchase from a medical supply store for under $50 and you can embellish it and make it pretty and femme)
A bidet (I promise to have one installed one day for this purpose/bucket list item)
Put herbs in ceramic basin
Sit basin in the bottom of the empty bucket, commode or bidet
Pour boiling hot water over the herbs
Wait. Let herbs soak & let the water cool down quite a bit first. (you may have to add some cold water to cool it down a bit but you want steam so don’t put too much cold water)
(Be sure to wave your hand over the basin to check for correct temperature before taking a seat, you don’t want to scald your tender area down there)
Sit (with legs apart) and cover your waist with the large towel
Then cover your legs and up to your waist with the blanket to keep the steam inside the area.
Relax, soak up the steam and enjoy.
You may stay seated for about 10 or 15 minutes.
Towel dry “down there” and your perspiration.
Take a shower then (I prefer to take a shower afterward.)
Apply lotion or oil all over and proceed to your bedroom chair or lie flat on your bed and massage your V-Jay Jay with oils of your choice.
After this you will feel so refreshed, less stressed, relaxed and invigorated.
C) Other Amazing Things to Do:
Sip on a cup of herbal iced tea while sitting or a tall refreshing glass of mineral water.
Breast oil is so amazing and helpful and so I love using it to soothe when my breasts feel warm to touch, extremely tender and sore in the area. Just massage tenderly the oil all over your breasts. It’s been told that breast oil seeps into the breast tissue and break up any lumps or bumps and help reduce the chances of getting breast cancer. I don’t know how true this is but it does feel and smell amazing.
It’s always been my favorite oil to use on the outer skin of my V-Jay Jay is plain Bio-Oil alone or sometimes I like to mix it with a little almond, coconut, castor and jojoba oils. But the bio-oil leaves you with such a beautiful strong and lasting pleasant fragrance. Even a touch of Patchouli and Frankincense smells really nice when you are fresh and clean.
So just before bedtime I like to use the various female suppositories like vitamin E, tea tree and Flora Femme after my V-Jay Jay steam facial. Be careful because those suppositories may leak a lot, so cover where you lay with a thick towel. But it’s worth it because it helps to make you supple, soft and feels really nice.
Also from time to time I buy and like to take oral supplements like Ultimate flora vaginal support 50 million, consume a pint of plain yogurt a week and vitamin E supplements which helps to keep “down there” balanced and healthy.
