How To Clean Your Jade Egg
The jade egg or Yoni egg is a powerful tool for women. It’s important to know how to clean your jade egg. And I’ll give you that important information below. Though I’ll say, the idea of the jade egg not being sterile and causing problems is something I would like to also address.
We Live in a Yoni Phobic Society
Women have been programmed to think their Yoni doesn’t smell right. We’re expected to have a Yoni that is sanitized and devoid of anything other than a perfect perfumey smell. That’s not what a Yoni smells like… some manufactured perfume. Your Yoni has a unique scent and it’s good for you to get to know it. It’s not a bad smell at all. Honoring your Yoni’s scent is part of self-love.
The Importance of The Deeper Teachings of The Jade Egg Practice
I believe it’s important for every woman to learn more about the Jade Egg in general. Knowing how to clean your jade egg is just a small part of the journey with this ancient wisdom. I have used a Yoni egg for over 14 years. I initially learned about the practice from Dr. Saida Desilets when I was studying at the Divine Feminine Institute. These teachings have transformed my relationship with my Yoni. I want the same for you.
For now…. here is what you need to know about cleaning your Jade Egg.
Methods of How To Clean Your Jade Egg
There are a number of methods for how to clean your jade egg. You need to choose which one is best for you. And you might even make up a new one! There is so much information on the internet about how to use an egg and how to clean it. Here are some ideas.
- Rinse thoroughly with warm water and let sit to dry. Do NOT use soap. You may use a few drops of tea-tree or grapefruit seed extract in a glass of warm water as a cleansing soak, rinse afterward.
- If the egg is drilled, make sure you blow through the hole to clear out your magical “Yoni juice” out of the hole so that it doesn’t dry up inside the hole making it harder to get out.
- Soak your Yoni egg in a cup of water with 3 to 4 drops of food-grade hydrogen peroxide to sterilize.
- Dip it in almost-boiled or just-boiled water to sterilize.
- Spray colloidal silver on your Yoni egg, including inside the drilled hole.
- Use Tea Tree essential oil or Lavender essential oil similar to the way mentioned previously with colloidal silver.
Tune into what your Yoni likes. I personally like lavender or tea tree oil. I don’t overuse it and when I do use it I often rinse the excess with warm water before putting the egg inside me.
Free Yourself from Thinking You Have To Know How To Clean Your Jade Egg… Beyond Clean
The main thing is to not get freaked out or anal-retentive about keeping your egg sanitized and sterile. If you find yourself doing that with your Yoni egg you might want to look at your attitude about your Yoni. Do you like how she smells? What is your attitude about her natural discharge? What type of relationship do you have with your Yoni?
Remember your Yoni has natural bacteria. The bacteria is important to keep her balanced and healthy. She doesn’t need to be douched or sanitized and neither does your egg.
I mean DO use common sense. Don’t put a Yoni egg inside you if dried up vaginal juice was accidentally left to dry inside the hole. Don’t pick your Yoni egg up off the floor or ground and put her inside of you.
Think about your toothbrush. Do you sanitize your toothbrush? Yes, you do get new toothbrushes but you probably use your toothbrush quite a few times before throwing it away. The inside of your mouth is loaded with bacteria. You aren’t soaking your toothbrush in hot water or some sterilizing agent between each use… right?
How To Clean Your Jade Egg – It’s About Having A Relationship
Think of how to clean your jade egg as a relationship. A relationship between your Yoni and your Yoni egg. You don’t need to be prim and proper… just real! And not real clean to the point of overdone either. Some women douche and it can actually be harmful. The most important thing about knowing how to clean your jade egg is knowing that clean is clean enough. And that your Yoni is clean enough too!
Your Yoni is perfect and beautiful just the way she is. She can handle a “normally” clean egg. I’ve used my Yoni egg for over 14 years. All I’ve done is make sure the hole is clean right after it comes out by blowing through it. I also wash the egg with hot water from the sink. Rarely if ever have I run boiling water over my egg. The hot water from the sink has worked well for me.
If I feel I want my egg to be a bit cleaner I use tea tree oil or lavender to clean it. See what resonates with you. My Yoni has had no problems. Again use common sense regarding the cleanliness of how to clean your jade egg but don’t go overboard. Don’t make it a bigger deal than it needs to be.
Eggs with holes vs Eggs with No Holes
If you have an egg with a hole you do have to take greater care of keeping it clean. When I first started I used eggs that had holes. Now I use eggs with no holes. So that takes away the concern of unwanted bacteria. Take a toothpick with Tea tree oil and clean the inside of the hole if need be.
It’s important when you first start using a Yoni egg to use an egg with a hole in it. Using unflavored dental floss and threading it through the egg to make a string for ease of getting it out is highly recommended. When you first start using the egg your not familiar enough to know if it will come out easily. The dental floss is your training wheels so to speak. You don’t want to experience getting the egg stuck in your vagina and start freaking out. She has had enough fear instilled inside her historically.
Once you feel comfortable with getting your egg in and out, unless you are doing exercises involving a string, you can use an egg without a hole.
Squeaky Clean? What’s that telling you?
The main point here is yes, know how to clean your jade egg but don’t get anal retentive about it. And if you do find yourself overly concerned with keeping your egg beyond squeaky clean, you probably have the same attitude about your Yoni. And the truth is, your Yoni just wants to be accepted the way she is.
