Are you ready to reclaim your sacred power? Women, you have an amazing force within your body, and if you’re reading this, it’s time to unlock it! It’s time to recapture the power and beauty of connecting with your natural powers of manifestation! It’s time to take control of yourself and put women’s health back in your hands!

Allow yourself to truly become one with your body. Get to know your true self, heal your feminine energy, and reclaim your sexual health. 

Wondering how? You may have heard of kegel exercises, but have you heard of pairing those exercises with the healing power of crystals? Kegel exercises, meet the Yoni egg.

What is a Yoni Egg?

Yoni Eggs, or Jade Eggs, are carved and polished egg-shaped crystals that are made to work with and through your “yoni,” which is a beautiful word meaning source, womb, or vagina.

Wait, I’m supposed to put this egg into my vagina?

When inserted into the vagina, these smooth, non-porous crystal eggs help strengthen your pelvic floor, working your pelvic floor muscles, and healing pelvic floor dysfunction. Sound familiar? Think of a yoni egg as a metaphysical kegel ball. When used safely, polished, non-toxic crystals help heal your energies as well as your muscles.

Why is the crystal egg shaped?

Through symbolism alone, eggs represent fertility, feminine strength, and feminine health. Aside from fitting perfectly in your vag, the shape of these crystals is perfect for working feminine magic.

Yoni Egg Benefits

When used with the proper exercise techniques, yoni eggs could provide the same physical benefits that kegel, or Ben-Wa, balls provide: 

  • Stronger pelvic floor muscles
  • Improved bladder control and bowel function
  • Controlled, improved incontinence
  • Increased sexual confidence and experiences
  • Reduced sexual trauma
  • Increased mental health around past sexual experiences
  • Sense of self-empowerment
  • Improved vaginal moisture and natural lubrication through relaxation
  • Spiritual connection with womanhood

Always check with your OB/GYN and mental health specialists for medical advice before starting any sexual health regimens, such as yoni egg use, kegel ball use, and pelvic floor exercises. Let them know what you plan to use, especially crystal and material type; they will know how your body could react.

How do I use a Yoni Egg?

To get the most out of using your yoni egg, you will need: 

  • A relaxing space
  • Your favorite lubricant
  • A safe, non-toxic yoni egg with a clean string attached, if applicable 
    • Suffer from vaginal trauma? Start small with a size that feels comfortable to insert. 
    • Have a relaxed vagina and plan to do kegel exercises? Start with the approved large size and work your way down.
  • Your favorite intimate “sex toy” wash (These are usually balanced and safe for internally used items.)
  • A healthy vagina (If you are experiencing any imbalances, check with your doctor and get clear permission to move forward with yoni exercises.)

Time needed: 20 minutes.

  1. Clean, rinse, and dry your yoni egg with a safe intimate toy wash.

  2. Wash your hands with antibacterial soap, rinse well, and dry.

  3. Apply lubricant to your egg and your vagina.

  4. Relax and breathe.

  5. When ready, slowly insert the egg.

    Ensure that the string is accessible for easy removal. If it is difficult to insert, try a smaller-sized egg. Do not force the egg in.

  6. Relax, meditate, focus on an intention to manifest, or perform your favorite kegel exercises for no more than 15 minutes.

    Suffer from vaginal trauma? Focus on relaxing with the egg inside.
    Have a relaxed vagina? Perform your favorite kegel exercises.

  7. When you’re ready to remove the egg, relax, lie down, apply more lube, gently squeeze and relax your muscles, and lightly pull the string. 

  8. Clean, rinse, dry, and store your yoni egg until next time.

    If your egg has a hole drilled into it for a string, pay extra attention to cleaning the hole.

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 egg-shaped are safe for insertion. Some egg-shaped crystals are meant to be used as symbolism or rested above the womb.

Are Yoni Eggs safe?

When it comes to the safety of crystal yoni eggs, there are a lot of things to take into consideration, such as egg material, egg finish, egg size, personal experience, personal health, life stage, and doctor guidance.

If you are cleared to use a kegel ball and your yoni egg is made of a safe material, your next step is to talk to your medical provider. Do not use yoni eggs without speaking to your doctor first.

Why are Yoni Eggs Labeled as Dangerous?

Yoni Eggs, themselves, are not dangerous. What is dangerous is making an uneducated purchase about the type of Yoni Egg you should purchase and use. Only certain crystals and stones are safe for insertion, and only certain sizes are safe for insertion. Some crystals can dissolve in the vagina, some can break apart, 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?

The easiest way to select an egg is to see if your egg passes the safety test.

  • Does the crystal egg pass the safety test?
    Do not use your egg if you answer “no” or “I don’t know” to any of these questions.
    • Are you 100% confident that your egg is the crystal it claims to be?
      • Do NOT use mystery crystals, dyed crystals, or crystals that did not come with an authenticity certificate. When in doubt, ask a gemologist.
    • Is the egg safe to use in water or damp environments?
      • Do NOT use a crystal egg that can dissolve or degrade in water.
    • Is the egg’s composition non-toxic?
      • Do NOT use a crystal egg that contains any naturally occurring toxins, chemicals, or dangerous metals. These can enter your bloodstream and make you ill.
    • Is the egg’s hardness level above 6.5?
      • Do NOT use a crystal that is lower than a 6.5 on the Mohs hardness scale; these could break or degrade inside of your vagina, causing damage, injuries, and infection.
    • Is the egg polished? 
      • Do NOT use a crystal egg if it is not polished. Harmful bacteria can live in the cracks. The sharp edges can injure and infect your vagina.
    • Is the egg crack-free? 
      • Do NOT use a crystal egg if it is cracked. Harmful bacteria can live in the cracks.
    • Is the egg non-porous? Is the egg pit-free?
      • Do NOT use a crystal egg if it is cracked. Harmful bacteria can live in the pores.
    • Is the egg fleck-free and vertical-rod-free?
      • Do NOT use a crystal egg that contains multiple crystals, inclusions, or fiber rods. These can break apart, splinter in, and cut your vaginal walls.
    • Is your egg a single crystal?
      • Do NOT use a crystal egg that is made of multiple crystals put together; these can come apart or separate at the seams inside your vagina and cause injury and infection.
    • Is the crystal as glossy and smooth as glass?
      • Do NOT use a crystal egg that has started to look dull. Dull appearances are caused by microscopic pitting on the surface; harmful bacteria can live in these pits.
    • Has your doctor said you’re clear to use your specific yoni egg in your healing practice?
      • Do NOT use a specific crystal egg without specific permission from your doctor for that specific egg.

A great rule of thumb is: If you can safely make a direct gem elixir with the crystal, you can use it as a yoni egg. Natural Quartz, Amethyst, Rose Quartz, Jade, all Jaspers, Carnelian, and Black Obsidian eggs are considered safe, though you should always buy from a reputable seller, make an educated choice, clear use with your doctor, and inspect your egg before every use.

      Hi Brianne!

      This is true for many crystals and stones. Approved crystals for yoni eggs, such as pure quartz, rose quartz, and carnelian, are not porous. It is very important for everyone to research their eggs, crystals, and their seller’s sources before purchasing a yoni egg for insertion.

      Hi Marcia!

      I hope you’re having a beautiful Tuesday!

      I would advise against using your Tiger’s Eye Yoni Egg internally. While the fibers are not likely to be freed in its polished state, it IS a stone that contains asbestos, making it dangerous if your egg were ever to get chipped.

      It is also a relatively soft crystal, measuring at a hardness of 5.5 – 6 on the Mohs scale. This means it will be very prone to chipping and possibly dissolving.

      I would recommend using it externally be resting it on your belly, above your womb, to be safe.

      In Deepest Love + Brightest Light,
