LEIAMOON is on a mission to Empower the Womb.
We are gathering information, developing products, and sharing stories to inform and provide tools for women’s self-care. Our focus is on the practice of vaginal steaming, also known as yoni steaming or v-steaming.
When it comes to the womb space—the vagina, the surrounding areas, and internal reproductive system—women are enduring unnecessary discomforts en masse. From PMS, uterine fibroids, postpartum pain, menopausal distress, and infertility to PCOS, sexual trauma, endometriosis, pelvic floor dysfunction and more, the majority of women experience challenges related to this part of their body. But treatment for these issues is limited, typically taking the form of antidepressants, pain medications (including NSAIDs and opioids), hormonal birth control, and invasive surgeries. Other times, women’s health concerns are downplayed or ignored altogether. We believe these concerns are important signals, calling us to pay closer attention to our body’s need for better self-care.
At the same time, we are living in an era when the world is waking up to the innate power of women and learning how to better respect the female body, mind, and spirit. This awakening involves devoting a higher level of care and attention to the female anatomy, starting with the vagina and womb space. These are our most sensitive areas, our pleasure centers, and the places that we grow and birth children from. It is time for women (and men!) to love these parts of ourselves, and to shift the mindset around the womb space to one of reverence and empowerment.
Vaginal steaming has much to offer in the way of transforming this relationship and contributing to womb space wellness. It creates an opportunity to open ourselves up, both physically and emotionally, and allow soothing and comfort into an otherwise tightly guarded space. The feeling of warm, aromatic steam on the vagina can be calming, cleansing, rejuvenating, and cathartic. It is a simple, beautiful way to honor and care for the most vulnerable and sensitive part of our bodies.
Beyond this value as an elemental self-care tool, women across the globe are using vaginal steaming to relax the pelvic floor, create more comfortable menstrual cycles, maximize fertility, complement postpartum care, facilitate emotional healing, and ease the transition into menopause. Women are discovering new ways to make vaginal steaming a valuable tool in their lives every day.
For these reasons and more, we set out to make this historic self-care practice easily accessible, safe, and of the highest quality for any woman in her own home. We believe that transforming our relationship to the womb space is a vital step towards improving our relationships with ourselves, each other, and the planet. The vagina, the womb space, the yoni—whatever word you choose to call it—is the incredible source of all human life on Earth, so let’s take the very best care of this place together. We look forward to serving you all on this mission and to growing together as a community!
