Before using your yoni egg for the first time please inspect it and make sure the gem was not damaged during shipping. The inner cracks are normal for rose quartz. However, if you find any outer cracks (the ones you can feel with your finger), it means the egg was damaged during shipping – please do not use it and immediately return it.
After you inspected the egg, wash it twice in warm water with soap and air-dry. It is better to use natural organic non scented body soap for sensitive skin. You can wipe your egg with cotton gauze doused in vodka or other hard alcohol you have at hand (do not use rubbing alcohol). Wash it thoroughly under running water after you do this.
Another way of cleaning the egg is by boiling a pot of water, then removing the water from the stove. Let the water cool for a little while, you should be able to put a finger in it. Now you can set your egg in the water for 12-15 minutes. You can add a few drops of tea tree oil in the water if you wish.
Please do not boil your egg, it might cause it to crack.
Wash your egg thoroughly before and after each use.
It is a good idea to energetically clear your yoni egg before using it for the first time. The best way to do it is by placing it in the bowl of sea salt overnight. You can choose to smudge it with sage, palo santo or sweet grass instead. With a regular practice it becomes important to energetically clean your yoni egg every couple of days.
