Yoni Egg Beginners


Which yoni egg do I start with?

If you are a beginner we usually suggest a medium size, drilled Yoni Egg. We automatically send out drilled medium yoni eggs, unless you specify in the comments box at checkout that you would prefer different. 

The type of crystal yoni egg you choose is entirely your personal choice. I suggest to be intuitively lead and let the crystal choose you. Ask yourself now – which crystal am I naturally being drawn to? Is there a colour that enters your mind? A feeling? A Chakra? Maybe a sensation? Scroll down to read the qualities of the crystals. 

Our most popular yoni egg is the Rose Quartz stone, which embodies the essence of self love.

Our highest quality yoni egg is the Nephrite Jade Egg. Highly trained Jade Egg facilitators and practitioners use the Jade Egg, as this is the highest quality Jade on the market and is the traditional stone used by the women of Imperial China, over 5000 years ago. Our Nephrite Jade has a life time guarantee (if you drop it, real Nephrite shouldn’t break – it’s as strong as steel!).

Jade has a very high vibration for healing and balancing and was coined “Semen of the Dragon” in China because of its incredibly powerful properties. Nephrite Jade is dense, non-porous, smooth and hard and strong (it’s actually harder than steel!), so if you’re stuck with which egg to begin with – I recommend the Nephrite Jade Egg.

Drilled or Un-Drilled?

If you’re beginning the Yoni Egg Practice, I suggest you start with a drilled egg.

A drilled egg has a drilled hole running through the smaller end of the stone, which you can then tie a 30cm piece of hemp string (or dental floss) through, making it easier for removal. With a string tied through the drilled hole, you can remove the egg as if you would a tampon.

When washing your yoni egg, you can simply blow air through the hole and run hot (not boiling) water through the hole. This will clean out any vaginal fluids.

Non-drilled eggs, however, have the benefit of carrying less bacteria as there is no hole to clean. The only difficulty beginners have with using non-drilled eggs, is that it can be slightly difficult to “birth” the egg as the muscles aren’t trained yet to do so.

When in doubt, you can use your index finger to scoop the egg out of the yoni! It’s a great way to get to know your yoni.

Single Egg or Set of three?

Generally a medium size yoni egg is ideal for most women who haven’t given birth.

However if you’re a woman who has experienced child birth, prolapse or any vaginal issues, I highly recommend a set of three. The benefit of a set of three (different sizes) is that you can choose what size you want to work with on any given day. A medium might be too difficult for you to hold inside, so you might prefer to use a large eggto begin with. But how are you meant to know this before purchasing the eggs?

If you are torn between which crystal egg to purchase, I sell a set of three with your choice of egg size and crystal, so you can mix and match. By default this set comes with a large jade, medium rose quartz and small obsidian, all in a black silk lined box, a velvet pouch and hemp string!

Nephrite Jade Eggs – Set of three

What are Yoni Eggs?

Firstly, let me clarify what a Yoni is. Yoni, in the Indian Sanskrit language, means “Sacred Temple” and refers to a woman’s vagina. In my humble opinion, this is a far more beautiful word to use compared to vagina, which literally means “sheath for a mans sword”.

A yoni egg is an egg-shaped stone or crystal used to insert inside the yoni to strengthen and tone the entire pelvic region – the pelvic floor muscles, the lower abdomen, the urogenital diaphragms and even the lower back.

It works as a weight resistance tool to use whilst doing your “Kegel exercises”, which are pelvic floor pulses or contractions all women should do, especially after childbirth. There is plenty of research now to suggest that it’s best to use a weight for doing your Kegels, rather than squeezing the walls of the vagina together with no weight resistance at all.

What are Crystal Pleasure Wands?

The Pleasure Wand is designed to internally sensually massage your yoni simply by inserting inside the vagina, just like you would a regular vibrator or dildo — gently pulling the wand in and out to your speed, tempo and pleasure. With it’s glassy and sleek texture, the sensation inside is smooth and silky – similar to the texture of glass, however charged full of high vibration crystal!

The wand warms up to your own body temperature during pleasuring. You can also wash the wand in hot or cold water beforehand so that when you insert the warm wand it heightens sensations and pleasure tremendously! The Pleasure Wand is a tool for women to use on themselves during masturbation/self-pleasuring or self-loving meditation (on the body or inside the yoni). It can also be used by your partner while he/she orally stimulates the clitoris, creating a similar experience to manual stimulation (fingering).

You may also like to use the wands for overall body massage, sleeping under your pillow or to have on your alter as a dedication to the Shiva Lingham.

What are the benefits of using Yoni Eggs?

Using yoni eggs have loads of benefits, including:

  • Increases connection with the Yoni (so many women are “cut off” from the waist down)
  • Increases sensation during sex / self pleasure
  • Revitalises nerve-endings in the vagina
  • Improves overall life-force energy or “chi” in the body
  • Boosts sexual energy levels and awakens the libido
  • Helps train the vagina for childbirth and recover the muscles post-childbirth
  • Increases wetness and lubrication (yes, yes, YES!)
  • Helps to prevent prolapse whereby the pelvic organs collapse into the vagina due to atrophy and non-use.
  • Relieves incontinence (weak bladder/accidentally peeing)
  • Balances hormones by increasing blood flow to the area, which contribute to youthfulness
  • Heightens orgasmic potential and able to access a variety of orgasms
  • Helps to stay grounded in body and brings awareness to the yoni, womb and entire pelvic band
  • Improves overall health, happiness and wellness – physically and spiritually – as the yoni egg focuses on the place in the body with the most Chi (life force energy).

What are the benefits of using Pleasure Wands?

The wand doesn’t “vibrate” like a typical sex toy. It does, however hold a special vibration which replenishes your intimate area with new energy, removing old, stale or stagnant energy.

Unlike most sex toys it wont desensitise the area with harsh, vigorous vibrations on your most sensitive, intimate areas. It’s a much smoother, gentler and conscious experience – albeit an item made out of something as hard and dense as crystal.

Using the pleasure wand will rejuvenate the area physically, sexually and spiritually. Women who have self pleasured with a crystal pleasure wand have said to experience more health, sensation and sensitivity in their yoni. They feel “less dirty” and “more connected” to their most intimate space!

What is the history of the Yoni Egg?

Over 5000 years ago, the Ancient Chinese civilisation regarded the sexual organs as the centre of one’s health. If this area of your body was active and healthy, your entire body was active and healthy.

The Chinese considered the Yoni to be the place from which one can channel their ‘chi’ (life force energy) to their higher Chakras (energy centres in the body) in the aim of enlightenment. The process was thought to transmute their sexual energy into higher spiritual energy thus allowing them to get closer to God and feel happier, healthier and full of vitality.

The Jade Egg practice is an ancient Taoist practice and dates back to Imperial China when it was kept a secret by the Empress in the Royal Palace. The Queen and her concubines practiced using the Jade Egg to strengthen the power of their vaginas not only to impress the King sexually, but also to heighten their spirituality and transform & transmute their Chi. This brought them more peace, health, youth and essentially helped them live for longer.

The Jade Egg practice was only taught to the most privileged women of the royal courts. So how lucky are we to have access to such ancient techniques and be able to do anytime, anywhere!?


Why do I need a yoni egg? Can’t I just do kegels?

Just like you lift weights at the gym to build your bicep muscles — similarly it’s recommended to use a weight inside the yoni if you’re wanting to strengthen this area. Why would you do your kegel exercises and not use a weight? The vagina is just like any other muscle in the body and just because it’s a sexual organ, doesn’t mean we should deny it the opportunity to be strong, toned and healthy.

To build up the strength and sensations in the yoni, it’s important to use a weight for resistance. However, just as you can over-do it at the gym – you can also over-train your yoni.


What size do I use?

Yoni eggs come in a variety of sizes.

For beginners to the practice, I suggest starting with a medium sized egg. If you have experienced childbirth, then it might be worthwhile purchasing a set of three – that way you can start with the largest egg and work your way down to the smallest egg.

When deciding what size egg to use, I suggest these two options:

  1. When in doubt buy a medium sized egg – this will fit most women, and is a great all-rounder egg for beginners, intermediate or advanced practitioners.
  2. If you have had children, are menopausal or are not 100% what size to purchase, I recommend buying a set of three, that way you can explore the various sizes and what feels best inside your yoni. The set of three is great if you want to work up to using the smallest egg, which is harder to hold inside, or the largest egg, which is heaviest to hold inside. It gives you the options and variety to explore the sensations of all sizes, as they have very different effects.

When I first started using yoni eggs, I begun with the largest egg and would sometimes get very sore around my lower abdomen as well as UTI symptoms. This demonstrated that I was using an egg too big for my yoni. Now I use a medium egg and it feels much less intrusive and much more comfortable to work with.


Help, I can’t feel my egg!

Firstly, don’t worry! It’s completely normal to not feel anything at all in the beginning. It takes a while for the yoni to feel less numb and more alive.

Secondly, don’t give up! Try to use the egg at least every day (even for a few minutes) and gradually sensation will increase. Continue the practice daily or every second day and witness positions, movements or exercises in which you feel more sensation (yoga is a great time to wear your egg).

If you still don’t feel anything after a month of regular practice, then opt for a larger egg.

How do I care for my Yoni Egg?

There are four things to remember when caring for your egg:

1. When you receive your egg, I suggest washing it in warm water with organic, chemical free soap, vinegar or essential oil (something like lavender or tea tree). This will wash away any bacteria and sterilise the egg or wand. Be sure not to put the crystal under direct boiling hot water as this may force it to crack. Warm soapy water is fine to use in between uses.

2. Regularly energetically cleanse your egg or wand. Crystals absorb energy, so it’s important to neutralise the crystal by doing one or more of the following techniques:

  • Leave over night under a full moon (even if it’s cloudy).
  • Rinse or soak in salty water (ideally the ocean).
  • Leave in salt crystals over night.
  • Smudge with your sage stick.
  • Leave in the sunshine (not too long or it might fade).
  • Wrap in cotton and bury in the earth.

3. To maximise your use out of the crystal, set your intention into the stone each time before using it. Crystals are natural entities from the earth and can be programmed with a heart felt intention. Simply close your eyes, place your crystal in your hands or against your heart, and feel into an authentic intention that rises up for you. Then detach from that intention.

4. Keep in a safe place on your alter or in your bedroom. Ideally don’t keep in the bathroom or anywhere where people can pick it up and touch it. This is your sacred stone, for no one else to touch.
