What is a yoni egg?
Sometimes referred to as Jade eggs, kegel eggs, or vagina eggs, Yoni Eggs are smooth, polished, semi-precious stones designed to be worn inside the vagina to preserve physical beauty, cultivate Chi or life force, and increase fertility and sexual pleasure.
The Yoni Egg practice is believed to have come from ancient China over 5,000 years ago and was known only by a handful of select people.
Purportedly the secrets of the Yoni Egg practice were restricted to the Royal Court of the Chinese Royal Palace, their concubines, and select Taoist practitioners but today, many women the world over are beginning to discover this once protected and locked away secret.
What is a Yoni?
The term Yoni is a sanskrit word meaning the divine place of birth, source, and origin, as represented by the vulva and female reproductive organs. The seat of creation hosting the fertile soil to house the seed of life.

How does a Yoni Egg work?
First, it’s important to understand the pelvic floor.
The pelvic floor is a complex network of muscles, connective tissues, and nerves that form a “basket” around pelvic organs. In women, these organs include the bladder, uterus, rectum, and vagina.
In today’s world many people sit for hours a day and even those that live more active lives tend to neglect this area of the body.
This can cause the pelvic floor to become atrophied and weak leading to lower blood flow and nerve connectivity as well as higher risk of internal injury.
A weak pelvic floor can also cause a feeling of being tired or depleted.
In some extreme cases, it may even be responsible for bad sex!
Practicing Kegels with Yoni Eggs works to counteract all of this.
Think about when you start a new exercise routine.
Maybe at first, you’re not confident, you don’t like your body or how you feel physically, or you may even be a little clumsy and awkward.
But sure enough, as you keep showing up to the gym, you start to develop more strength, grace, vitality, and body awareness.
Yoni Eggs work much in the same way. Doing Kegel exercises are already great but doing them with a Yoni Egg is like weight training vs jogging.
By consciously directing your attention and energy to your Yoni and pelvic floor while exercising with your Yoni Egg, you’re regaining blood flow to sensitive areas, repairing damaged nerves and stimulating new nerve growth, and strengthening the entire pelvic floor thereby reducing the risk of pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence drastically.
Not only this, but in the vagina are acupressure points linked to major organs in the body! Just like acupuncture of the body, certain areas of the vagina are linked to vital organs.
By gently massaging these areas with your Yoni Egg, you can benefit your kidneys, liver, heart, spleen, and lungs, and help keep emotional centers open.
Not only will you begin to experience deeper sexual pleasure, but you’ll be keeping your organs and body happy as well!
Have better sex!
Many women today report an inability to have orgasms. Some have never had an orgasm at all.
This stems primarily from a lack of connection to their bodies due to emotional or sexual trauma, a sexually repressive culture, or just a plain lack of attention to their lady parts.
With regular Yoni Egg practice you can begin to build new neural pathways in the brain connecting to the nervous tissues in the vagina leading to heightened sensitivity, more arousal, and ultimately more orgasms!
Yoni Egg practice begins by stimulating the bartholin glands which are responsible for vaginal lubrication.
One of the most immediate side effects you’ll begin to see when you start with your Yoni Egg is an increased wetness making intercourse much more pleasurable for you and your partner.
As you stay regular with your practice, you’ll begin to see more suppleness and strength of your vaginal walls. Your Yoni will become more youthful and elastic and this health will radiate throughout your entire body.
You’ll be able to contract and relax your vaginal walls at will intensifying the experience of lovemaking by stimulating the orgasm process.
Speaking of orgasms, did you know there are multiple types of orgasms women can experience?
There are clitoral, G-spot, uterine, cervical, throat, nipple, and heart orgasms and probably way more. Sounds crazy right?
Engaging in a frequent Yoni Egg practice, you’ll slowly begin to understand and awaken these parts of your body and clear the emotional energy blocking you from achieving these blissed out states.
* Like anything else, it’s different strokes for different folks. Take time to listen to your body, intuition, and emotions. Be experimental, openminded and trust the process.
Clear blocked energy and emotional trauma
Emotional trauma is often times stored in various parts of the body, a primary spot being the Yoni. It doesn’t have to be sexually related or particularly painful to leave an impression on this sensitive area.
With frequent, regular Yoni Egg practice, new or old emotions may come up. This is a great time to journal, meditate, or reground yourself in nature. Be sure to take time and allow space for these things to be dealt with as they are presented to you.
The sacral chakra, where the Yoni is located, is a primary energy center responsible for pleasure, creativity, and your sense of relationships with the world and other people.
Imbalances in this energy center can stifle your creative flow, cause you to relate to intimate partners, yourself, and the people around you in unhealthy ways, or keep you feeling numb or stuck in an emotion.
Bringing your attention and awareness to this part of your body while practicing with the Yoni Egg opens and realigns the sacral chakra and gets things flowing again.
Please keep in mind, each crystal is different and therefor has different effects energetically. The Rose Quartz and Obsidian Yoni Eggs can be intense for some. Frequent breaks are recommended initially to feel out each crystals effect.
It’s important to keep your Yoni Egg clean both physically and energetically to keep it working properly.
Because of the the crystal compounds of each Yoni Egg can store energy and data that they’ve been exposed to. With a steady practice you should be cleaning your egg physically before and after use as well as energetically cleansing your Yoni Egg every other day or so.
This ensures the crystal is working at its maximum capacity.
How to physically clean your Yoni Egg
First inspect your Yoni Egg for any damage that may have occurred during shipping. Your egg should be polished and smooth with no exterior cracks or abrasions. (The Rose Quartz Yoni Egg has internal cracks which are natural, safe, and characteristic of authentic Rose Quartz) If the egg is damaged, please send it back for a replacement.
Great care should be taken when cleansing your Yoni Egg. Because your egg and you are developing a relationship, your egg should be treated as an extension of yourself.
Always clean your Yoni Egg before and after use. This begins your relationship with it and will ensure that it is safe to use while ensuring you’re getting its maximum benefit.
To clean your stone, hold it under cool running water for thirty seconds or so while massaging it with your fingers and hands. Apply an organic unscented soap or diluted organic apple cider vinegar during this process. Make sure to rinse all soap off of your Yoni Egg before placing it on a lint free cloth to air dry.
You can also dab a cloth with a hard drinking alcohol like vodka and apply it to your egg. Never use rubbing alcohol as it may cause irritation when introduced to the sensitive areas of the Yoni. Again, make sure all of the cleaning agent is rinsed off with pure water.
How do I energetically cleanse and charge my Yoni Egg?
With frequent practice it is important to also energetically cleanse your egg. The crystalline structure of your Yoni Egg begins to pick up and store the vibrations of its environment and in today’s world, we are exposed to a myriad of different energies not all of them being positive.
The easiest way to energetically cleanse the Yoni Egg is by what’s called smudging. Simply burn White Sage or Palo Santo around the egg or bathe the egg in the smoke.
If you have crystal bowls at home you can place your Yoni Egg in the middle of the bowl and start resonating. The vibrations from the bowl will be picked up by the stone and its immediate environment forcing it to transmute or drop the impure energy it’s collected and be returned to its original pure state.
Charging your Yoni Egg can be done by placing it in moonlight (giving it feminine lunar energy) and letting it sit for the night or placing it in sunlight (masculine solar energy) and leaving it sit for a max of 2 hours. The sun’s energy can be very intense and if left too long it can actually drain your Yoni Egg of energy.
Mantra, music, and prayer are also very effective for charging your egg. These methods, when directed towards your egg, begin to energize it with white light. You can call the energy with your intention, visualize yourself being full of light that’s being channeled through you by the universe, and imagine it being passed through you and into your egg.
Shortly after cleaning, clearing, and charging your Yoni Egg, set your intentions with the practice. Think of what you actually want from your stone. It can range anywhere from emotional, physical, and sexual healing, to manifesting new relationships or circumstances in your life.
Your Yoni Egg is your faithful servant. It helps to protect you by absorbing negative energy while facilitating growth, new life, and positive events.
*It’s understandable that all of this may sound very “woo woo” to the average person. If you’re skeptical, challenge yourself to just try the things talked about on this page. Be as scientific as you can be. Do your research, keep logs and journals, experiment, and keep an open mind. Going through the motions mechanically by rote will still produce results but if you want to be really blown away, entertain some of these ideas, get into it and have fun!
Begin your practice!
Your Yoni Egg practice starts with simple kegels. You may already be practicing kegels but doing them with a Yoni Egg is like doing weight training for your vagina! Also, you’re getting the added benefit of the healing properties of the crystal.
With diligent practice, you’ll eventually be able to control different muscle groups in the Yoni and manipulate your egg like an expert. You may even get to an advanced level and begin learning “pompoir” also known as playing the flute or the singapore grip. (it’s worth a Google!) If you’ve opted for the drilled option you can even attach weights to your Yoni Egg upping the level of difficulty.
However, your egg is working its magic just by being worn! At first, you can simply sleep while wearing your Yoni Egg to get familiar with it. Your Yoni will start to play with your egg while you rest. Once you’re comfortable wearing your Yoni Egg, try meditating with it in, or wearing it to Yoga, Qigong, or just going about your daily life.
*Remember as with any exercise routine it’s important to rest. Relax and melt your pelvic floor after the contraction to simultaneously build strength and softness.
How to start
Picking your first Yoni Egg is a very personal choice. There are many stones on the market today being sold as Yoni Eggs however, not all of these are safe or designed to be worn inside the Yoni.
Traditionally Taoist practitioners have used Rose Quartz, Black Obsidian, and Nephrite Jade Eggs recognizing them for their powerful healing and transformative properties. These stones are time tested.
The Nephrite Jade Yoni Egg is our #1 pick for beginners
A rare gemstone, Nephrite Jade has been highly regarded and cherished for thousands of years by many prehistoric cultures the world over. Since the stone age, it has been fashioned into tools and weapons, used in rituals, ancient ceremonies and medicines. Said to unite heaven and earth, Nephrite Jade is a must have for serious spiritual aspirants and laypeople alike.
Because of its distinct characteristics, the Jade Yoni Egg has been the original stone of choice by the concubines and Empresses of ancient China. For one, it’s absolutely easy to care for.
Nephrite Jade is a super hard, non-porous semi precious stone with high thermal conductivity. You can drop it accidentally on a hard surface and it won’t crack, and then boil it to disinfect it with no problems. In the right hands, the Nephrite Jade Egg will last generations.
The Nephrite Jade Yoni Egg also has a very soft and nurturing vibration. While other stones might do their healing work by stirring up emotions, Jade eggs work much more smoothly and gently.
It’s calming and protective of its wearer keeping her safeguarded from negative or low vibrational energy while simultaneously working with past traumas and energetic blockages. The Jade egg’s primary function is healing, especially the heart chakra and the reproductive organs in the Yoni. It also works with the adrenal glands and kidneys soothing stress and intensifying lovemaking.
This egg is the ultimate Yoni Egg for opening the heart chakra. It’s relaxed and soothing vibration eases tension and stress in the heart and opens up the Yoni practitioner for more love and caring in her relationships. Deep love for yourself, family, friends, community, and especially romantic partners are cultivated when practicing with the Rose Quartz Yoni Egg.
It increases communication between the womb and heart making it a powerful tool when manifesting and creating art and new relationships. You will begin to understand yourself in ways you never thought possible.
Because this Yoni Egg is quartz, it has a high vibration and can be intense for some users. The energy emitted is soft and loving but can be powerful. We recommend limiting the time of practice sessions initially to 30-60 minutes until you familiarize yourself with the stone and see how its energy affects you.
Obsidian is made when magma from volcanic activity undergoes rapid cooling due to exposure to air turning it into a smooth, black, glass.
It’s no wonder that the Black Obsidian Yoni Egg is used primarily when dealing with painful or traumatic pasts or to promote energetic grounding in times of turmoil.
Because of the Black Obsidian Yoni Egg’s powerful and unique properties, use this stone with caution. It can often work quickly to bring up old experiences that need to be dealt with or help initiate rapid root and sacral chakra healing causing quick state changes.
To ease this process, start by wearing your Black Obsidian Yoni Egg for shorter periods (30min to 60min) initially and keep listening to your intuition.
Black Obsidian is also a powerful protector. It can absorb dark energies from the energetic field around you keeping you safe from unwanted forces. Because of this, your Black Obsidian Yoni Egg can build up an accumulation of energy and should be physically and energetically cleansed frequently to avoid an energetic backlog and to keep the stone working properly.
Getting to know your new Yoni Egg
When your are just getting to know your Yoni Egg, it’s recommended that its not used in conjunction with other crystals for at least 2 weeks. This will familiarize you with your stone’s energy and you can scale up or down accordingly.
