    Understanding Vaginal pH

    What does it mean to have a neutral pH? - Aseptic Health

    pH (denoting the ‘potential of hydrogen’ or ‘power of hydrogen’ is the measurement of how acidic or alkaline (basic) a substance is.  The pH scales runs from 0 to 14.  A pH of less than 7 is considered acidic.  A pH of more than 7 is considered alkaline, or basic. A pH of 7 is considered neutral.

    Understanding Your Vaginal pH Levels

    Why does Vaginal pH Matter?

    The vagina is most healthy in an acidic environment with a pH between 3.5 and 4.5.  This environment is protective and creates a barrier that prevents unhealthy bacteria and yeast from multiplying too quickly and causing imbalances.  A “normal” pH can vary depending on the stage of a woman’s life usually increasing before menstruation, around ovulation, and after menopause.  Women with high vaginal pH, above 4.5, are more susceptible for unhealthy bacteria to grow and are at a greater risk for vaginal infections.  A very acidic pH, less than 3.5, might reduce chance of fertility.

    Some Causes of an Unbalanced Vaginal pH

    1. Unprotected Sex. Semen is alkaline, which can encourage growth of certain bacteria.
    2. Antibiotics. These drugs kill not only the bad bacteria that cause disease, but also the good bacteria you need to maintain a healthy, more acidic vaginal pH level.
    3. Douching. Although it isn’t advised, some women regularly wash out their vagina with a mixture of water and vinegar, baking soda, or iodine. Douching not only increases the vaginal pH level, but also encourages the growth of harmful bacterial overall.
    4. Menstrual Periods. Menstrual blood is a little bit basic and raises the pH in the vagina. When that blood flows through the vagina and is absorbed into a tampon or pad and sits in place, it can raise the pH level of the vagina. Note: The pH of blood is 7.4.
    5. Female hormone level change. Lack of estrogen, during the menopausal years, is associated with alkalization of the vaginal pH to above 4.5.
    6. Pregnancy & Breastfeeding. Estrogen levels increases during pregnancy but plummets after pregnancy. Women who breastfeed usually have lower estrogen levels that those who do not.

    Pay Attention Ladies: You Gotta Steam Your Yoni with the Help of Her Sacred Place!

    Pay Attention Ladies: You Gotta Steam Your Yoni with the Help of Her Sacred Place!

    When most women think of things to “steam” the first items that come to mind are dirty carpets, dirty drapes, and even dirty expensive clothes. We “steam” these items because we want them looking beautiful and smelling like heaven…but the most important thing that we women really need to “steam” is our vagina, and unfortunately most women NEVER utilize a vaginal steam, and I’m going to explain to you why it’s so IMPORTANT for ALL women to steam their yoni!

    Jenny, what is a “YONI”?

    Okay, so most people may not be familiar with the term “YONI”, so let me pull out my dictionary and give you the exact definition:

    “YONI” is a representation of the female genitalia that in Hinduism is a sign of generative power and that symbolizes the goddess Shakti…

    In other words, YONI = VAGINA

    Jenny, what the heck is “Yoni Steaming”?

    Yoni steaming is a very ancient practice that uses herbs and plants to help maintain, or heal, a woman’s vagina from impurities and infections.

    You see, yoni steams restores, cleanses, rejuvenates, revitalizes, and strengthens the female womb, and it’s also an AMAZING way for a woman to reconnect with herself spiritually, emotionally, and even physically.

    Many women who choose to steam their yoni believe that it can be meditative and EXTREMELY relaxing, while at the same time allowing them to feel more at home within their own bodies.

    Benefits of Steaming Your Yoni:

    Yoni Steam Benefit #1 – Increases circulation

    Yoni Steam Benefit #2 – Heightens energy flow by bringing warmth to the womb & pelvis

    Yoni Steam Benefit #3 – Heals impurities within the womb

    Yoni Steam Benefit #4 – Removes toxins from the body

    Yoni Steam Benefit #5 – Detoxifies the womb

    Yoni Steam Benefit #6 – Increases fertility

    Yoni Steam Benefit #7 – Strengthens & heals the reproductive system after giving birth

    Yoni Steam Benefit #8 – Helps with vaginal dryness

    Yoni Steam Benefit #9 – Improves a woman’s menstrual cycle by reducing pain & bloating

    Yoni Steam Benefit #10 – Balances emotions & hormones

    Yoni Steam Benefit #11 – Cures yeast infection & bladder infections

    And lastly, but most importantly, a yoni steam strengthens the female mind, body, and spirit!

    Jenny, do you have to see a gynecologist to steam ones yoni?

    Heck no you don’t have to see your gynecologist to steam your yoni…yoni steaming, also referred to as vaginal steaming, involves you sitting on a vaginal steam stool, or other type of seats with a hole in the middle, and below the stool there’s a bowl or other container containing steaming hot water and a combination of yoni steam herbal blends, such as mugwort (similar to ragweed), rosemary, wormwood and basil.

    Jenny, where is the BEST place to buy yoni steam supplies and herbal blends?

    Well, after visiting almost 20 online vaginal steaming forums, as well as doing a LOT of research for this article, I have come to the conclusion that the ABSOLUTE best place for women to find the best yoni steaming products is at Her Sacred Place!

    Jenny, when is it not OK to use Her Sacred Place Vaginal Steam products and supplies?

    During one’s period, if pregnant, if one has an infection, blisters, open wounds, sores or if one has genital piercings are not good times to use it. It can only be used on the grounds that metals at such pierced points are removed because heat from the steam can make it hurt badly.
