If you grew up in the 80s or 90s (like me), you probably had a moonstone ring or a rose quartz choker necklace. I also remember collecting gemstones and keeping them beside my bed. I loved their colours and I felt they had magical powers. Turns out they do!
Holding crystals or placing them on your body (or INSIDE in this case) is thought to promote physical, emotional and spiritual healing. Crystals hold energetic properties that can work within our own energy systems, particularly when we channel an intention into them. You can think of them as a placebo! They hold the power that we give them.
Before you even purchase crystal, think about what aspect of your life you’d like help with. A bad breakup? A move to a new city? Then trust your intuition as you browse the crystals, noticing which colors and textures you’re attracted to. Notice what you naturally gravitate towards.
Remember ** THERE IS NO RIGHT OR WRONG CHOICE **
All crystals yoni eggs will do the same thing on a physical level, however they will subtly differ on an energetic level - depending how sensitive you are and what your intention is.
As a rule of thumb, we always suggest Nephrite Jade as a starting point for Yoni Eggs as it's the most dense, non-porous and imperfection free stone to use internally.
Since they are natural rocks from Mother Earth, when ordering a crystal egg, make sure there are no cracks or fissures as it must be solid for you to use internally so it doesn't harbour bacteria. Make sure you clean all your yoni eggs in warm water with apple cider vinegar or tea tree oil or lavender oil. We only stock crystal yoni eggs that are safe to use internally - not all crystals can be used such as Selenite or Pyrite!
Here are some of the other crystals we stock and their properties:
