Yoni Egg Use & Care

Before you begin working with your yoni egg, it is important to cleanse it. I recommend cleansing your egg with a diluted Castile soap. You can also sanitize your egg by gently placing it in hot water that has been brought to a boil and left to cool for a few minutes. Please DO NOT place your yoni egg in boiling water, this could cause it to crack. Let your egg soak for about 15 minutes.

This is a good time to connect with your yoni egg, clearly set your intentions and prayers, and open your heart to receive.

When you are ready to begin working with your yoni egg, ensure you are relaxed and have the time you need to fully experience this process. Breathwork and breast massage are wonderful ways to prepare your body for this practice.


Begin by holding your yoni egg with reverence and center yourself in meditation. Ask your body if she is ready to receive the egg. If it's a yes, gently place the egg at the opening of your vagina, wide end first (you may want to use a natural lubricant such as coconut oil).  Holding your yoni egg in place, you can begin to contract and relax your vaginal muscles. This will create a vacuum and your yoni will naturally “swallow”  the egg.

Lying down, place one hand on your heart and the other on your womb. Begin by just breathing and cultivating a sense of awareness of your womb center and any energy or emotion that flows throughout your body. You can then begin to contract and relax your vaginal muscles along with your breath. Breathe in contract, hold for five seconds, breathe out, and relax.

Another great beginning practice is to stand with your legs shoulder width apart, arms to your side, and bent at the elbow so that your upturned hands are parallel to your womb center. As you breathe in tighten your fists as you contract your vaginal muscles. When you breathe out, relax your hands and your vaginal muscles.

If you have purchased a drilled yoni egg, you may want to practice vaginal weightlifting. You can do this by attaching a pouch to the string of your threaded yoni egg and adding weight by placing other crystals, stones, or rice inside the pouch. You can then practice a number of vaginal exercises to build strength. This is a more advanced practice and I recommend that you do your research and use extreme care if attempting this.

There are so many ways to work with yoni eggs, just listen to your body and let your intuition guide you.

You can relax in meditation, practice various exercises, rock your hips back and forth, rotate your hips while dancing… It is completely up to you!

Remember to start slow, working in about fifteen-minute increments before building up to a longer practice. Be gentle with your body, relax more than you contract. Keep in mind that you want to work towards being able to feel and manipulate your yoni egg during exercise; building strength, dexterity, softness, and suppleness. But most importantly, this is a practice to reclaim the sanctity of your womb and the sacredness of your womanhood.

I recommend allowing the yoni egg to remove itself naturally or with the assistance of your muscles rather than using the string for removal. With this practice, it is important to develop a sense of trust with your body to increase muscle awareness and muscle memory.

You can leave your yoni egg in for as long as you feel comfortable. Some women leave their egg in for a few minutes, others may want to work with their yoni egg for up to 12 hours. Listen to your body and do what feels right for you. Yoni eggs will often come out on their own when they are ready. However, if you wish to remove it, simply push your muscles downward. You can do this in a squatting position or standing. Don't worry if your egg does not come out right away, it cannot get stuck! I find gently guiding your egg out with a finger to be very effective.

*Always take special care not to “drop” your yoni egg when using the bathroom.*

When you are done working with your yoni egg, you can cleanse it and place it in the sunlight to dry.


This is your journey…
