You are ready to start your Yoni Egg journey towards your most feminine and healed self – but you are not sure where to buy that small powerful tool? I made this article to help you with finding your Yoni Egg and start your practice today.
What size to choose?
There are many different sized Yoni eggs to choose from. It is always recommended to use a bigger size in the beginning, as you will feel it more easily and are more likely to get the hang of how to hold it with your vaginal muscles. After some time it’s a good idea to work with a smaller egg. The smaller the egg, the more skills and muscles it takes to work with. But you can always stick with the one egg your whole life, if you want.
|X-large (40mmx60mm)||Have given birth to more than one child; problems with incontinence; over-weight; inactive|
|Large (40mmx50mm)||Recommended size to start with for most women; easy to feel; for those over 45 years; low libido; incontinence problems|
|Medium (30mmx40mm)||Have not had children; active; younger than 45; no known incontinence issues; easily able to reach orgasms|
|Small (22mmx30mm)||For advanced users, after mastering the medium size|
|Small ben wa balls (20mm)||Not egg shaped; cannot be felt in the beginning; no healing effect through crystal (please check if the material is toxic-free)|
What material to choose?
Talking about the size brings us to the topic of the material, too. Traditionally Yoni eggs have been made out of Jade. Jade as a crystal has really good healing properties. It is a very balancing stone and adapts fast to your body’s temperature. Using a crystal instead of plastic eggs or ben-wa balls includes the healing and powerful benefits of the stone itself. Crystals can help you break blockages and balance your energies. Make sure to use the right egg size and crystal, one that really feels the best for you. Trust your gut feeling. It’s important to let your heart speak, when choosing the right egg, not your mind.
Why most women choose a Nephrite Jade Egg?
There are Yoni Eggs made of many different crystals, but many women prefer a Nephrite Jade Egg. Why that? Nephrite Jade is often used in dream work, to help with lucid dreaming, and with remembering dreams. Nephrite Jade carries a revitalizing energy that can help to speed healing. It is a stone of health and abundance, allowing Divine energy to enhance the circumstances of life. Used as a good-luck talisman in many cultures, Nephrite Jade helps open the Heart Chakra to allow good fortune to flow naturally into one’s experience of this physical realm.
There are many other crystals that also have great healing purposes, so as already said, go with your gut feeling and choose the crystal that resonates with you the most.
If you want to go with a traditional Jade Egg you need to know that there are different qualities of Jade, graded into high, medium and low. Only jadeit and nephrite jade are considered authentic jade.
If you are about to go shopping for a Yoni egg, it’s important to be able to determine if you’ve found the real thing, or a good fake one. This article should help you with this process.
Many merchants and suppliers have the tendency to call any green or white looking stone “jade” (the ones listed below are not genuine nephrite or jadeit jade eggs):
- Onyx, a translucent marble
- Grossular garnet
- Malaysia Jade
- Opaque dolomite marble
Where to buy real Nephrite Jade Eggs?
My recommendation is to have an egg that is drilled and made out of nephrite jade.
