Yoni Egg Guide
Yoni in sanskrit means sacred temple, and refers to a woman’s vagina.
The yoni egg is an egg shaped semi-precious stone that when used inside the vagina, has healing properties for the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual body. A yoni egg is worn by a woman inside her vagina, and is an amazing tool that helps tone the lower abdomen as well as the pelvic floor. When these muscles are strong, they help prevent leakage of our life force and sexual energy. In fact, using a yoni egg helps to rev up & circulate sexual energy - thus enhancing creativity, energy levels, & libido. Lastly, using a yoni egg is hugely beneficial for women who experience urinary incontinence, as the yoni egg practice can reverse incontinence issues rapidly.
The yoni egg is a practice that originated in ancient China in the tradition of Taoism. Traditionally, the stone used for the yoni egg practice has always been Nephrite Jade. As you use your yoni egg, it is important to set an intention, as your intention for doing the practice can amplify the healing effects - including the healing of sexual &/or emotional abuse, trauma, low self-esteem and stagnant energies. The yoni egg practice is particularly beneficial for healing suppressed sexual energy & clearing sexual blocks. If you're a beginner we suggest that you start with a medium, drilled yoni egg as this will typically fit most women.
How to Use a Yoni Egg
Many women experience the benefits of using their yoni egg simply by “wearing” the yoni egg inside their vagina while sleeping, going for a walk, doing yoga, etc. The benefits experienced from this are attributable to the enhanced awareness brought to your yoni from wearing the yoni egg, as well as the crystal healing properties of the unique stone you select.
We sell drilled yoni eggs because the benefits of wearing a yoni egg become hugely amplified when you are able to apply resistance to the yoni egg when it is in your vagina. With a drilled yoni egg, you can thread string through it and create this resistance by pulling on the string while using your pelvic floor muscles to hold the yoni egg in place. Using a combination of conscious breathing techniques, placing the yoni egg in different areas within the vagina, and applying resistance to the yoni egg by pulling on the string, you will notice significant increases in strength, awareness, tone, & sensitivity of your yoni very quickly.

If you're a beginner we suggest that you start with a medium, drilled yoni egg as this will typically fit most women.
If you have experienced childbirth, we suggest starting with the large sized egg and then gradually making your way down to a medium.
The small egg is recommended for advanced practice or women with a very petite yoni.
Are Yoni Eggs Safe?
YES! Yoni eggs are very safe. Ever since jade yoni eggs have made their way into mainstream cultural consciousness, many misconceptions have been popping up in the media. One of these misconceptions is the idea that using a yoni egg inside the vagina is unsafe due to the fact that it will cause a yeast infection by harbouring bacteria. This is FALSE! Yoni eggs (as long as they are high quality like ours) are made from solid pieces of stone. These crystals are non-porous and thus will not harbour bacteria as long as the yoni egg is cleaned properly before & after use.
We do NOT recommend beginning the yoni egg practice for your FIRST time if you are pregnant. The yoni egg practice is incredibly powerful at the physical & energetic level - and thus we recommend waiting to begin the practice until after you have given birth.
NOTE: Not ALL crystals are safe to use inside the yoni. We have ensured that each crystal product available in our store is SAFE & beneficial for internal use.
