Herbal body oiling 101

As you might know, self-care has been a very prominent trend in the health and wellness world recently (and we can’t say that we hate it!). But, did you know that you are probably missing one of the easiest and most effective daily self-care practices out there? Herbal body oiling is a practice that is sensual, healing, and easy for all to ritualize as part of our self-care routine.

Herbal oils hold strong medicinal properties that absorb into the body quickly and effectively as a topical skin regimen. Integrating plant medicine into your daily life can not only be calming for the mind and soul - think better sleep, less anxiety, increased energy and feeling more centered - but has significant positive benefits to the physical body. Herbal body oiling hydrates our largest organ, the skin, which improves the lymphatic system, therefore improving the immune system and ability to fight infections and allergies. The act of massage moves lymphatic fluid throughout the body, improving blood circulation, relaxing muscles and  improving joint stiffness. Herbal body oiling can also deeply relax the nervous system through touch and self-massage, as well as mindful breathing.

Connecting with your womb/yoni steaming 101

There is little, if anything, that needs to be done to maintain vaginal balance in a healthy woman. However, giving extra care and attention to our wombspace has incredible benefits, no matter how small or complex the effort. 

Vaginal steaming, otherwise known as yoni steams or bajos are a very ancient practice, most notably rooted in Mayan and Korean cultures. While this practice is old and wise, we are seeing a huge resurfacing and normalization in mainstream media due to celebrity chatter and its availability in high-end wellness spas. With careful preparation and self-awareness, this practice can be done safely at home.
