Benefits of a Yoni Egg

YoniEgg_FB

Some days I just have to sit and laugh at what I come up with! I’m not a stranger to trying new things like ingesting clay or charcoal, doing coffee enemas and ditching tampons. The first time I heard about a Yoni Egg in a group I’m in a few months ago and  I immediately became intrigued. I decided to learn all about it and of course, for research purposes, had to try it out for myself! This post will share with you the benefits of a yoni egg.

What is a Yoni Egg?

Yoni eggs, or Jade Eggs, were designed centuries ago to improve the mental and physical health of women in Asian royalty. Ancient cultures believed that a woman’s womb is the center of her life force, sexuality and feminine energy. The sexual organs were regarded as the center for health and well-being. This powerful practice was kept a secret and was only taught to royalty. Yoni Eggs were used to promote youthfulness, health and longevity.

Yoni eggs are comprised of natural stones, crystals and minerals These crystals can have many healing properties that affect each person differently. Because crystals are earth minerals they have a vibrational frequency that promotes healing both emotionally and physically. Each crystal type is unique and can be helpful to heal sexual and emotional traumas as well as call on specific qualities such as tranquility, vitality and balance. These properties differ from crystal to crystal.

Benefits of a Yoni Egg

As women age and after childbearing the vaginal muscles begin to lose elasticity which can cause health problems. A yoni egg is a great way to tone the muscles and prevent and treat many reproductive health problems associated with aging such as:

  • Incontinence
  • Prolapse
  • Vaginal dryness

Other benefits of using a yoni egg include:

  • Reduce childbirth recovery time
  • Reduce menstrual cramps
  • Shorter and lighter menstrual cycles
  • Increase fertility
  • Stimulation for natural flow of hormones
  • Enhanced sexual energy & libido
  • Increase blood circulation to female reproductive system
  • Improve vaginal elasticity
  • Prevent sagging of internal organs caused by aging
  • Shrink fibroids
  • Reproductive health

 

How to Use a Yoni Egg

I have to admit, I was a little nervous to try a Yoni Egg at at first, but my curiosity to try all things natural took over and I decided to give it a shot. A yoni egg is like kegals on steroids. It’s a great way to tone and strengthen the pelvic floor, balance the chakras, manifest intentions, improve your sex life and promote overall health and well-being. It was a bit awkward at first, but not bad as I thought it would be and I noticed results pretty quickly. Here is a great video that explains how to use a Yoni egg, the history and benefits.

Where to Get a Yoni Egg

Like I recommend earlier, it is important to research the properties of different crystals to determine which one resonates with you and would be the best for your personal needs. You can find and order online here. There are more youtube videos and websites with people’s experience and testimonials. I think that it is important for women to take a proactive approach to their health and wellness and hope that this article can help to inform and empower women to learn more about tools they can use to improve well-being.

Edible Whipped Love Butter

EdibleLoveButter

Tis the season for love! I have been making my own personal lubricant for years now and felt like trying out something new with Valentine’s Day approaching! I am happy to share with you my AMAZING Edible Whipped Love Butter you will love it!

Homemade Edible Whipped Love Butter

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Coconut Oil solidified (where to buy)
  • 2 tsp of sugar
  • 5-10 drops of Essential Oils – if using more than 3 types use 3-4 drops each (where to buy)
  • Small Glass Jar (where to buy)

Here is a list of my favorite oils for personal lubricant

  • Ylang Ylang – These flowers have been used to decorate the bed of newlyweds. It balances male-female energies, enhances spiritual attunement, combats anger and low self esteem and restores confidence and peace.
  • GoldenRod – This oil has relaxing and calming effects. Supports healthy urinary tract and liver function. It also supports circulatory system which means increased blood flow for him, (ahem) a “Goldenrod”  if you will……
  • Sensation- This beautiful smell is profoundly romantic, refreshing, and arousing It amplifies the excitement of experiencing new heights of self-expression and awareness and is helpful for frigidity.
  • Black Pepper- This oil is stimulating, energizing and empowering. Black pepper fires up libido, provides a warming effect when used topically, and boosts energy and stamina.
  • Cinnamon- Cinnamon bark is sweet, spicy and warming. It invigorates the senses, calms the nerves and improves circulation. Cinnamon increases desire, creativity and can improve erectile dysfunction and frigidity. This is a hot oil so use lightly to test out at first.
  • Patchuli- is a relaxing oil the clarifies thoughts allowing for the release of jealousies, obsessions and insecurities.
  • Peppermint- Is purifying and stimulating to the conscious mind. It will add a bit of a tingly sensation when added to the mix.

I recommend using Therapeutic grade Essential oils to use the most pure grade. Click here to learn more about therapeutic grade oils and where to get them.

Directions

  1. With a stand mixer or hand mixer, beat the oil and sugar until it is fluffy like whipped cream. Add essential oils and beat to incorporate.
  2. Fill your desired container with the whipped body butter and refrigerate for another hour.
  3. This edible whipped body butter will keep about 6 months at room temperature. It will soften in warm weather because coconut oil liquifies at warmer temperatures. If this happens it can be re-whipped and stored in the refrigerator. This recipe also doubles as a killer massage butter or body butter! Enjoy!

 

***I get many emails regarding the use of sugar in this product and concerns of sugar causing yeast infections. I have not had a problem using the mix of coconut oil and pure therapeutic grade essential oils because they make a pretty un-inhabitable environment for candida. The sugar is used merely to make the concoction taste better if you would like for it to be edible and can be eliminated altogether.

Homemade Natural Personal Lubricant

Natural Personal Lubricant

 

A healthy sex life is important for many reasons as mentioned HERE in my post on how to increase your libido naturally. The need for lubrication to get things going in a common problem for many. Lack of lubrication during sex can be caused by many reasons such as getting older, having children and nursing. Common medications such as anti-biotics and anti-histamines contribute to vaginal dryness and cause pain during sex and is associated with low sex drive. Many people rely on commercial lubricants as the answer to their problems without any idea of the harmful side effects. This post will share with you the dangers of many store bought personal lubricants and how you can make your own natural personal lubricant.

The Dirty Truth About Personal Lubricants

Almost all personal lubricants on the market contain dangerous petrochemicals such as propylene glycol an ingredient also used in oven cleaner, anti-freeze and brake fluid. YUCK! Commercial lubricants also contain many methyl and propyl parabens which are considered carcinogens and banned in Europe. These chemical lubricants actually damage the genital tissue they are supposedly helping. The warming sensation that is considered a perk of lubricant actually causes the skin to shrivel up and fall off the tissue causing small tears and compromising the genital’s natural immune functions. Women who use commercial lubricants are more likely to experience vaginal infections and have a higher risk for STD’s. Unfortunately, the general public is unaware of the dangers and continues to contribute willingly to the $219 million dollar personal lubricant industry.

 How to Make Your Own Natural Personal Lubricant

I have been making my own personal lubricant for awhile now and it’s so easy, without any disgusting ingredients. In fact the ingredients used actually boost sexual health and help to support hormone health as well. Natural Personal Lubricant can be made with just about any safe/edible carrier oil and any blend of essential oils. Click here to learn where to buy essential oils. Here is my favorite to use:

  • Coconut Oil (where to buy)
  • Lavender Essential Oil
  • Peppermint Essential Oil
  • Geranium Essential Oil
  • Jasmine Essential Oil
  • Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
  • Glass Bottle (where to buy)

I use 3-4 drops of each oil. The lavender oil will calm and relax the nervous system, ylang ylang is an aphrodisiac, peppermint oil will recreate the sought after tingly sensation and geranium and jasmine oil that will aid in supporting healthy hormone function. This oil blend makes an awesome natural personal lubricant and can also double as a massage oil.

**Warning** Do not use this lubricant with condoms as the coconut oil and essential oils are not compatible with latex and will cause the condoms to break!***
