Yoni soap is a natural, skin-friendly way to clean your vagina. These handmade bars can be made using a variety of ingredients, including essential oils, butters, and herbs.
If you’re interested in learning how to make a yoni soap, the first step is to choose a base. This can be olive oil or another mild, conditioning oil. If you want to add a bit of scent, try adding a few drops of essential oils.
The next step is to add the lye and stir it into the mixture until it has reached trace (when it looks like pudding). This process takes a little time, so be patient.
In India, yoni soaps are commonly made from goat or sheep milk, but they can also be made with coconut oil or olive oil. They’re easy to prepare and can be used on any skin type.
If you have sensitive skin or a history of dermatitis, be sure to select a soap that is gentle and doesn’t contain any harsh ingredients or botanicals. Yoni soap bars that contain fragrance and artificial colorants can cause an itchy rash, so stick with unscented, all-natural options.
While there may be a lot of hype surrounding yoni soaps, they can’t tighten your vagina, detoxify your womb, balance hormones, or cure any sort of bacterial or fungal disease. Moreover, most of these soaps are made for external use only and should never be used internally.
