Persephone's Herbal Steam || Calming & Astringent Herbal Blend

$8.00

This herbal blend contains gentle yet potent anti-inflammatory, astringent, and healing herbs that are known to regenerate, calm, and tone inflamed skin.

Named after the Greek goddess Persephone, who was forced to spend the cold part of the year ruling the Underworld with Hades, but allowed to return to Earth each Spring, this multipurpose herbal blend works beautifully for our faces and parts of us that are shown to the world, as well as our Underworld "nether bits" that go unseen below our clothes.

That's right. Our sensitive nether bits need pampering too.

Use Persephone's Herbs as a facial steam for their toning, calming, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties...

Use them as a bath for peaceful respite and to soothe minor irritations on the body...

Or use them on nether bits, for their calming & rejuvenating, tissue toning qualities not only for vaginas, but for anyone who has a hiney, as well.


Whether you have hemorrhoids, itching, general discomfort, or recently gave birth, incorporating herbs into your self-care ritual alongside your doctor's recommendations can promote blood flow to the region and provide a world of healing and comfort.
.....

>>>Yarrow & Witch hazel are astringent, tightening and toning pores and reducing excess fluid stored in swollen tissues.

>>>Chamomile & Rose are calming and relaxing, soothing not only skin but also the frayed emotional nerves that come along with pain and irritation.

>>>Calendula & Plantain are anti-inflammatory, supporting healthy cell regeneration and healing.

4 options to get the most out of Persephone's Herbs:

1. Facial Steam

- Grab a big fluffy towel and choose your spot. Comfort is key, so if you’re doing this over a sink you’ll want to use a chair or stool that offers the right height. Otherwise, a bowl on a table is your best bet.
- Secure your hair so that it’s off your face and cleanse using a gentle exfoliating cleanser
- Bring 4 to 6 cups of water to a boil in a kettle or pot.
- Add a handful of Persephone's Herbs to your bowl, and cover with the boiling water.
- Have a seat, drape your towel over your head and the pot, and hold your face 6 inches above the water.
- Raise or lower your head for more or less heat and lift a corner of the towel to cool off if needed.
- Steam your face for 5 to 10 minutes.

2. Yoni and/or Root Chakra Sitz Bath

- Find a basin just big enough to fit your keester in and place it in your tub (to catch any overflow)
- Fill the basin with a kettle's worth of boiling water. Add Epsom salts if you wish.
- Drop in your muslin bag filled with Nether Blend, and allow it to steep for 10 minutes. 
- Add more hot or cool water from the tub until the basin is halfway full with very warm water.
- Test the infusion to make sure it is not too hot.
-Carefully lower your bare keester into the basin, allowing the hot infused water to cover up to your hips.
-Try to relax for 10-20 minutes.

3. Yoni and/or Root Chakra Steam

- Bring 8 cups of water to a boil
- Turn off the heat, add a handful of Persephone's Herbs, & cover with a lid.
- Allow to steep for ten minutes.
- Pour this infusion into a bowl, bucket, or basin that is narrow enough to straddle. (If you are uncomfortable squatting, place a bowl in your toilet that rests on the rim of the seat instead)
- Test the infusion to make sure it is not too hot.
- Remove your underwear and squat over the basin or sit on the toilet seat above the steaming water.
- Drape a large blanket or sheet around your waist down to the floor making sure no steam escapes.
- Enjoy the rolling, healing heat until it cools & subsides, about 10-12 minutes.

4. Traditional Bath

- Add a handful of Persephone's Herbs to the muslin bag. Add Epsom salts and/or oats if you wish.
- Toss the bag in your tub of hot water and allow it to steep for 10 minutes.
- Enjoy your soak, then empty & clean your bag for next time. 
- This method isn't as potent but is still generally beneficial all around for body, mind, & spirit.

Makes a wonderful gift for new parents... Their nether bits will be eternally grateful for a gift that can bring them a bit of the comfort and solace that they are likely missing during this stressful time!

It is very important to test the temperature of the steam before using it. If it is too hot wait 15 seconds and test it again until it feels comfortably warm to steam with.
Do not add or use “essential oils” as they are too strong and may burn sensitive genital tissue.
