Maintaining a relationship with our source of creative energy is central to a nourishing and juicy connection to the sacred feminine. Jade eggs have been used for millennia to enhance & maintain female health and well-being. Also known as yoni eggs, these beautiful and powerful gemstones can transform the lives of the women cultivating a regular practice with them. Learning more about these exquisite works of art can provide insights into the benefits of their use and the role of jade eggs in the modern world.
The jade egg practice invites every woman to connect deeply to her own sacred space, or yoni, through intention and attention. Taking time for ourselves and creating a sacred awareness of our inner world is deeply nourishing. This practice invites the awakening of a fresh, centered presence and to release, in our own time, what no longer serves. At JadeEgg.com, we offer beautiful, authentic gemstone yoni eggs. We wish for all women to explore and enjoy vibrant self-love and radiant health from the inside out.
It has been said that jade eggs were historically reserved for the royal Queen and the consorts of the emperor of China and were credited with extending the lives and the enduring beauty of these women. In the Taoist philosophical and spiritual traditions, jade eggs have been used to stimulate and generate the life force in women by strengthening the pelvic floor and massaging the walls of the vagina. As we cultivate a practice with our jade egg, we are transforming our way of being with ourselves & the world. The details of the history of the jade egg practice are mysterious and not well known at this time. However, more knowledge is coming to light, and in many ways, the practice is something one experiences and feels the benefits of on her own. The shift that occurs within a woman that is taking time to be present with her own unique essence is, of course, challenging to put into words, but so apparent and clear by simply feeling it.
Jade eggs are semi-precious stones carved into egg shapes and polished to a glossy shine. These eggs are invited into the yoni (vagina) and worn there throughout the day or night, for as long as is comfortable. The jade stone has many beneficial properties, and is known to be a heart opening, detoxifying, and grounding stone that is very nourishing for the total well being, physically and energetically. It is recommended that jade is practiced with first, as this stone is a marvelous clearing stone that helps one release old emotions, energies, and trauma or toxicity that our sacred space has endured over time. Physically, holding or “wearing” the stone for any period of time strengthens and reconnects a woman to her body; her sacred feminine essence; her creative center. Maintaining a relationship with this deep, soft place in ourselves is very healing and empowering, and spreads a juicy, vibrant energy throughout every area of our lives.
Once you receive your jade egg, boil the stone in water for ten minutes, (unless you are using a rose quartz or amethyst egg, which are more fragile, simply pour mildly warm salted water over them in a cup and let sit ten minutes.) You only need to do this once, unless you feel a need to do it again at some point, which is also okay to do. Please DO NOT USE SOAP on your yoni egg. A few drops of tea tree oil or iodine in warm water is also an appropriate cleaning/ soaking solution. Rinse any solution off of the yoni egg after cleaning, and wipe well with a clean cloth or dry in sunlight. It is then nice to simply “introduce” yourself to this new and very intimate ally you now have in your life. Feel free to wear the stone in your pocket, a soft bra, or sleep with her under your pillow for a night or two.
When you are ready, begin with intention, breathing and connecting to your sacred body and the vision for the jade egg practice that you hold for yourself. Once you are grounded and ready to receive, begin the practice by laying comfortably, knees up, feet on the floor, and learning to sync or breath with the opening and closing of our yonis. Gently, open or “yawn” with the yoni, with your inhale. Close your or “sip” with your yoni and pull in with your exhale, guiding the egg in with a little help as needed until she in inside comfortably. This is called “sip and yawn” and takes time to learn, so be patient with yourself as you reconnect to the natural expansion and contraction of your sacred space.
You may begin by only wearing your jade egg for a few minutes a day, slowly building up more ability to wear it for longer periods of time. As our yonis learn how to hold the egg, we can also incorporate different gentle exercises (read more about jade egg exercises), strengthening our inner walls and muscles, rejuvenating and “waking up” a somewhat ignored energy center of our bodies. Jade eggs can be worn while doing household tasks, sleeping (remember to write down your dreams!), doing yoga, dancing, in the shower, meditating, and more! The possibilities are endless.

It is often shared by women that practice with the jade egg that there is an energetic layer (or multiple layers) at some point once a practice is established- where the old emotions trapped in the body from past relationships, traumas, memories, etc. are released. This clears the way to for more room in our creative center, for new things that we do want in our lives! This is different for each woman, at her own pace, and can look very different for anyone. We go into more detail on this here
Yoni is a Sanskrit word deriving from India that has several beautiful translations, “sacred space”, “entry way into the universe” and “home” being a few. The term yoni is also used to symbolize the goddess Shakti, who was the consort of Shiva and the representation of the divine feminine in Hindu philosophy. The Jade Egg is more specific to the actual history and lineage of this practice, from China. Yoni eggs are not necessarily carved from pure nephrite jade, however, and may be made from a number of different crystals or stones. For most practitioners, the jade egg more clearly reflects the Taoist origins of these teachings and their intended use in promoting spiritual clarity and improved well-being. Yoni eggs of different gemstones can also be used to stimulate and nourish yoni muscles and to achieve some similar- and some very different- effects with regular use. While jade eggs may sometimes be called yoni eggs, only eggs actually made of authentic jade can truly be referred to as jade eggs. It is also important to note that beginning your practice with a jade egg, and then possibly moving on to other gemstone yoni eggs when and if you feel called, is highly encouraged.
Nephrite jade eggs are considered to be the superior yoni eggs for beginners and offer a powerful journey for women of all experience levels and ages. Other types of yoni eggs, however, offer a limitless range of spiritual and physical benefits. Once you have established a jade egg practice, there are many other gemstone yoni eggs to explore, some being:
Rose quartz yoni eggs are associated with the heart chakra and are believed to invoke fierce self-love, self-esteem, and healthy boundaries. This gemstone holds a vibration of compassion and also promotes heart-centered awareness.
Amethyst yoni eggs stimulate the crown chakra and assist in opening the “third eye” or inner vision and intuition. This stone is used to tune into higher knowing, clear the mind, and to activate receptivity. Amethyst is said to be very meditative, activating and ecstatic.
Black obsidian yoni eggs have a strong connection to the root chakra. This stone is powerful for working with our shadow or repressed feelings and energies. The powerful absorption abilities of black obsidian make it an excellent choice for women with traumas and can be used for shadow work & integration. Known to be a deep and intense experience.
Bloodstone yoni eggs can assist in circulating stagnant energy. This stone is also stronger connected to the Mother or Goddess energy, and so can support any healing we have to do around the mother energy within or without. Bloodstone is also said to help greatly to balance menstruation and ease any pain around this time of shedding and cleansing.
Jadeite or “Mayan Jade” (sourced from Guatemala)
This mineral was and has been treasured by the Aztec & Mayan cultures as a stone of pure magic, that can invite, when needed, the protective forces of the unseen or ethers. Jadeite has been said to bring about cohesion and actualization of purpose. It has also been said that this gemstone brings forth the abilities needed to unite and improve relationships- inner and outer. Physically, jadeite has been used in the treatment of reproductive disorders, to improve the health of the skeletal system, and to soothe and stabilize muscular tissue. Whether light or dark in color, this stone is said to offer cohesion, protection, and powerful grounding energy.
Other types of yoni eggs offer their own unique benefits and support the energies of various chakras and key points within the body. For most women, however, nephrite jade eggs offer the greatest degree of support in the beginning of their practice for clearing and overall well-being with gentle regular use. It is wise to clear from us what we wish to let go of, and then invite more of what we do want in with the energy of other specific gemstone yoni eggs.
