What Is Yoni Oil?
What’s in yoni oil, you ask? Yoni oil is a natural oil infusion which usually contains organic essential oils and organically grown herbs. Yoni oil mixes are designed to be included in daily vaginal health and self-care routines. Most yoni oils are used to moisturize the mons pubis and labia, but they can provide a whole slew of other benefits as well.
Yoni Oil Benefits
Yoni oil provides an array of different benefits depending which ingredients are included. Additionally, many yoni oils can double as body oil, massage oil, or after shave lotion. Yoni oil uses are very numerous! Here are a few of the most common benefits of yoni oil that users enjoy:
Eliminates Chronic Infections
Many yoni oils contain powerful antibacterial ingredients like neem, which works to discourage bad bacteria, or tea tree oil also a natural antibacterial as well as an anti-fungal, making it particularly effective against recurring yeast infections or bacterial vaginosis (BV).
Vaginal dryness is a common result of stress, hormonal health issues, and can even occur as a natural result of ageing. Increased moisture is one of the primary benefits of yoni oil, which is why many include powerful natural moisturizers like coconut oil.
Prevents Ingrown Hairs
For those susceptible to pesky ingrown hairs, the regular application of a yoni oil infused with essential oils boasting antibacterial and soothing anti-inflammatory properties can act as both treatment and prevention. These include tea tree, chamomile and lavender.
Whether the result of dry skin, hair regrowth, friction, or susceptibility to infection, many women cope with regular vaginal itching. Common yoni oil ingredients like calendula, chickweed, and plantain work to soothe and reduce itching while facilitating natural healing.
Relieves Pain And Inflammation
If you’re suffering from pain, irritation, or general inflammation, yoni oil ingredients like comfrey work to increase cell turnover, relieve pain, and bring down inflammation. Peppermint oil is also a wonderful ingredient for those in search of a powerful soother.
How To Safely Use Yoni Oil
How to use yoni oil? The good news is, it’s relatively simple. That said, before applying any new product to your most delicate parts, it’s important not to take the basics for granted—like how and where to use it. Consider the following tips for safe and optimal use of your yoni oil.
Yoni oil is best used after a shower or bath. Always ensure that your hands are freshly washed before applying your oil, and, just as importantly, be sure to keep the bottle clean and dry after each use to prevent any buildup of transferable mold and bacteria!
Don’t Use It Internally
Yoni oil is designed for use on the mons pubis and vulva (including your labia and clitoris), but avoid inserting it into your vagina unless you are working with a specialist who can counsel you on safety. Otherwise, you risk upsetting your yoni’s delicate pH balance and risking infection.
Don’t Keep It Cold
Warm or room temperature yoni oil tends to be more pleasant than those kept cold or chilled. Additionally, some oils happen to gel or solidify when too cool (i.e. coconut oil). If your oil has a solid consistency, simply hold it under warm water until it liquifies, then enjoy.
Start With A Few Drops
Particularly when using yoni oil for the very first time, start with 3-4 drops. Believe it or not, when it comes to potent essential oils, a little really can go a long way. You can increase your yoni oil dosage once you’re accustomed to the product if you feel more is needed.
