People are more aware than ever about the quality of food they are putting in their bodies and the products they are rubbing on their skin, but totally unaware of what they could be exposing one of their most sensitive and sacred areas to. It’s time to learn the 5 ways you can honor your femininity, take care of your lady parts, and awaken your sexuality!
1. Reconnect with your yoni!
Yoni is another word for vagina, but it is more than that. “Yoni” is a Sanskrit word that represents the Goddess Shakti (Shakti is the mother goddess, the source of all, the universal principle of energy, power or creativity.)and means “sacred space.” By using the term yoni, you are honoring and acknowledging this feminine source of energy and empowerment. Ladies, this is literally your energy center, so don’t be afraid to explore your sexuality and let your orgasmic energy flow.
2. Stop putting bullshit in your yoni.
I’m talking about chemicals, chemical laden condoms, spermicide and weird shit you may be using in this sacred area. Your vagina is the most absorbent part of your body, so pay attention to what you’re putting up there.
3. Use organic condoms and lube.
Use products that are safer for your body and free of harmful chemicals. Some condoms sold in the U.S. contain a class of carcinogenic chemicals called nitrosamines, not cool. And lube? It can contain potentially harmful/ irritating petrochemicals like propylene glycol, parabens, fragrance, and polyethylene glycol.
There are SO many reason that I love this company (Sustain). They are a B corporation, which means they care about their companies effect on the environment. Sustain uses fair trade latex in their condoms and organic cotton in their tampons, so you can feel good about shopping with them!
4. On your period? Find your inner Diva!
Not only are there environmental concerns with the amount of tampons and pads that become waste products, these products can actually be quite toxic. Try using a menstrual cup that is made with healthcare grade silicon and no chemicals. It will save you money, is better for the environment, and helps you connect with your flow. I personally use the Diva cup and I also love the Lunette!
If that’s not your style, look for unbleached organic cotton tampons and pads. Sustain has a great line of organic menstruation products that contain no harmful chemicals, no animal by-products, no chlorine, no parabens, and no synthetic fragrances. That’s a happy vagina!
You can also give THINX underwear a try!
5. Try a crystal wand.
Self pleasure is important because it allows you to connect with your divine energy while learning your likes and dislikes so you can have more fun with sexual partners. Crystal wands are not only beautiful, they are charged with energy to open your chakras while you activate your energy through pleasure (unlike their plastic counter parts). Try this gorgeous rose quartz wand from chakrubs. The rose quartz wand is great because it is a stone of unconditional love and speaks directly to the heart chakra, dissolving bullshit energy and cultivating divine loving energy throughout your entire being.
Okay ladies, and gents, those are my top 5 ways to honor your lady parts. I think it’s time we all start loving our vaginas more and give them the goods that they deserve. Women’s sexual pleasure and our vaginas are becoming a less taboo subject and thank goodness because we deserve better. Our vaginas deserve better.
