Instructions for use:
Take one liter of filtered, mineral or natural spring water (avoid using regular tap water) in a large pot bring to the boil, once your water has boiled add your herbs and turn down to a simmer for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes place a lid on the pot and remove from the heat, allow to steep for ten to twenty minutes as you prepare your area, you may use a slatted chair or purpose built chair, you can also stack pillows and blankets or towels around your preferred bowl and sit on the floor, some women also use the urinal seat of their bathroom, this is a great alternative as it is the easy to access and generally private, simply clean this area thoroughly before hand, transfer your herbs into your preferred bowl or dish and gently and very carefully place it where you feel most comfortable and safe, whatever alternative for seating you choose remember you will be here for at least twenty minutes so comfort and safety is essential. Once you have prepared your area and are ready remove any unnecessary items of clothing, such as underwear or any synthetic items, remove the lid of your dish and gently sit over it, you should not be touching it at all, it should be at least 5-7cm below you, wrap a cotton blanket over your legs and tightly around your waist and then another one over your shoulders closing it over your legs, as though making a small steaming tent with you body. If it’s too hot just shift and adjust yourself a bit to allow a little air to pass through but don’t let all the steam escape, as this is what we are after. After 20 minutes take your time in getting up and wait for the bowl to cool completely before emptying, usually the garden or among plants is ideal for this.
