1. Are crystals safe for internal use?
Our Yoni Wands and Eggs are carved from “the mother stone” and have been created with the intention for internal use. Each Wand and Egg goes through a quality inspection where we ensure the smoothness of the stone. The Crystals have been selected not only for their healing properties, but also for their durable and non porous qualities which means they will not splinter or break inside of you. However, just like glass, if dropped on a hard surface, they will break so treat your crystals with loving care.
2. Are the Crystals porous?
Jade, rose quartz, and obsidian have closed porosity and are safe to use. They will not cause TSS (Toxic Shock Syndrome). The amount of bacteria (staphylococcus aureus and group A streptococcus are those associated with TSS) that would temporarily get on the egg is negligible if they’re exposed. We don’t have exact percentages of porosity since this is extremely difficult to measure at such low levels. A study shows a specimen of quartz, for example, to have 0.39% porosity. A typical rock would have 15-20% porosity.
Also, TSS is a risk when a woman wears very absorbent material (such as a tampon) during menstruation when pH levels rise, and even then, the risk is extremely small. Yoni eggs aren't used when we have our period, and they're the opposite of absorbent!
It doesn't hurt to be extra careful, so we suggest you sterilize your eggs by cleaning them properly! Again, yoni eggs are safe to use internally, and reports claiming otherwise are alarmist and inaccurate.
3. How do I clean and care for my Yoni Egg or Crystal Wand?
Your Yoni Wand or Yoni Egg should be cleansed before and after each use with a mild soap and warm, never boiling, water. Store in a cool, dry place.
5. What is a Yoni Egg?
Yoni eggs are gemstones carved into an egg shape and polished to be worn inside the vagina. This practice originated in Asia about 5,000 years. The royal empresses and concubines of ancient China used jade eggs to cultivate their sexual power, awaken their sensuality, and maintain health, vitality, & radiance into their old age. Up until recently, this practice was secret and only available to members of the royal family and to select Taoist practitioners.
5. How do I use a yoni egg?
By using the yoni egg for 30 minutes a day to a couple of hours, it will gradually start to tone and strengthen your pelvic floor, whilst also creating more lubrication, arousal and sensation. Exercises can be done whilst the Yoni Egg is inside of you to further encourage the training of your Pelvic floor muscles. A leaflet is included with your Yoni Egg giving full instructions for use.
6. Are Yoni Eggs safe while pregnant?
Please consult your doctor, doula, or midwife with any concerns you might have about using your yoni egg while pregnant. A yoni egg practice is a very nurturing tool for after you've given birth and your body has recovered from labor.
7. Do Yoni Wands hurt? Are they cold?
Yoni Wands are tools created for your pleasure that are completely smooth and come in various shapes to suit your desires. They can be cold but warm up quickly to your body temperature or you can hold it under warm water before your session. If you have never used a hard toy before like steel or glass and have only used silicone or softer toys, it may be a new sensation but Yoni Wands are completely smooth and won't hurt you.
