Yoni. Sacred Space. Feminine Temple. Door of Manifestation. A woman’s genitalia has been regarded as beautiful and sacred for centuries and by many cultures around the world. Unfortunately, many Women are not aware of the amazing force they have within themselves. Many women do not capture the power and beauty of connecting with and healing her own body and sexuality. Enter Women’s health. Enter the Yoni Egg.
What is a Yoni Egg?
Yoni Eggs, or Jade Eggs, are naturally carved and polished eggs that represent fertility, feminine strength, and feminine health. Often used to overcome trauma and to empower a sense of self-love, Yoni Eggs are a more natural and higher-vibrational version of kegel balls! Yes, this means that you can harness the energies and healing benefits of some of your favorite crystals on a more personal level.
Yoni Egg exercises work to improve your pelvic floor strength, improve vaginal moisture, and increase libido while you use it. When you remove the egg, you get a beautiful sensation of what it means to be a Woman. Experiencing the birthing of your Yoni Egg is a very powerful and enriching experience that will transform you into a beautiful Goddess of a Woman!
However, we must keep in mind that not all Yoni Eggs are great for insertion. Some egg-shaped crystals are meant to be used as symbolism or rested above the womb.
Why are Yoni Eggs Dangerous?
Yoni Eggs, themselves, are not dangerous. What is dangerous is making an uneducated purchase about the type of Yoni Egg you should purchase. Only certain crystals and stones are safe for insertion. Some crystals can dissolve in the vagina, others can rust in the vagina, and some crystals are naturally toxic to our internal system.
How do I choose a good Yoni Egg for insertion?
A great rule of thumb is to only insert Yoni Eggs made of crystals that have a Mohs Hardness rating of 6.5 and higher. You can find this number on that crystal’s Wikipedia page.
Natural Quartz, Amethyst, Rose Quartz, Jade, all Jaspers, Carnelian, and Obsidian eggs are considered safe, though you should always buy from a reputable seller and make an educated choice. If you can safely make a direct gem elixir with the crystal, you can use it as a yoni egg.
