So first things first, what the heck are they called?
We most often hear them called yoni eggs, sometimes jade eggs. However, the eggs come in various crystals and stones and are a associated with the yoni as from Sanskrit… I too started off calling them yoni eggs, and after a conversation with a friend of mine who is hindu, and hearing the concern over cultural appropriation, I have struggled to figure out what to call them consistently. I most often try to stick with crystal egg, but end up having to say yoni egg because that is what most people are familiar with.
What are they and why are they used?
Crystal/Yoni eggs are crystals and stones, shaped into an egg form and come drilled or undrilled. The eggs are inserted into your vagina and used to help with numerous medical and or spiritual needs. (Now dont confuse these with the “regular” crystal eggs that are also sold… they are just to hold or for decorative purposes). Drilled crystal/yoni eggs have two small holes at the smaller end of the egg. This allows you to string it and have ease when removing it. Undrilled eggs are best to use after you have already gotten comfortable with using yoni eggs. To remove them, you must have some comfort with controlling your vaginal and pelvic floor muscles.
Women have been using them for thousands of years and many sources relate the use of the egg to strengthening the life force or chi of a woman, via her vagina/womb area. It is believed that initially the yoni egg was first used exclusively by royal women and concubines. Most also think it began in Asia. Overtime the knowledge has spread wider and become more available to all women.
How do they work…
First, in simple terms, the eggs work by making the muscles work to hold it inside the vaginal walls. This works by strengthening the vaginal walls, and the pelvic floor muscles which all work to support the bowels, bladder and uterus. Think of it like a strength training workout for the vagina. Just like all of the other muscles in the body must be used and kept strong for optimal functioning and well-being, so too should the muscles that we use to bring life into the world as well as experience physical pleasure.
The second thing to consider is what you want to heal or address in your life. Do you want to focus on overall well-being, address some type of trauma or emotional wounds? Do you want to focus on sensuality and pleasure? Figuring out your intention will help you determine which egg or eggs to start with and you decide how often to use them based on your comfort and intentions.
What about sizes?
Typically you will start with a large, if you have had children or are already experiencing any incontinence or muscle weakness. As you see changes and are able to hold the egg in longer and easier, you can downsize to a medium and eventually to a small if you want to. You may also find that you go back and forth between sizes at different times. It is generally suggested that you can wear an egg from 12-24 hours maximum. I always suggest starting at night when you are going to bed so you don’t have to worry about it slipping out when walking around or using the bathroom.

This is an intimate journey between you and yourself…
More than anything as you get started in this journey I want you to remember that using yoni eggs is a personal and intimate decision that you make. And above all, you need to be comfortable and keep an open mind. Be willing to experiment and see what works for you. Reach out and ask questions when you have them, don’t try to do it by yourself. We all need support and help in our healing journey. Be sure to watch our youtuve videos, do your own research and educate yourself. Be take time to learn about crystals as you embark upon this journey.
You will notice we carry a somewhat limited selection of crystal eggs, because not all crystals are suitable to be used internally. So be mindful of this if we don’t have what you are looking for, don’t just run to next person and order. Make sure that the crystal you want to use is safe. Also even if you don’t shop with us, ask your seller if their eggs are GIA certified. You want to be sure you’re actually getting a real semi precious crystal or stone, and not a died crystal that can cause health issues. Of course we want your business. :). However more than anything we want you to be educated, healthy and safe.
