How should you wash your yoni?
It seems like a simple question, but your yoni is a delicate and complicated bit of your body that deserves special love and attention. EmpressBody feel that there are a lot of products out there like sprays, wipes and washes that are aimed making you feel like your yoni is in some way ‘unclean’ and this is not the case. Thinking about it this way breeds ideas of shame and EmpressBody are dedicated to empowerment and knowledge. Your yoni is like any other part of your body, it can build up sweat and this can create an odour, but your yoni itself is self cleaning! Your yoni has a delicate pH balance that controls the acidity of your yoni which kills off any germs, and your yoni produces discharge as a way of cleansing itself.

EmpressBody has put together a few facts and some tips to help you and your yoni stay in harmony.
Clean your yoni like any other part of your body
Your vulva is covered in normal skin and can be cleaned the same way you clean the rest of your body — with just a bit more caution. Try and use a soft towel or loofah and remember not to scrub too hard!
Don’t forget to change your sanitary wear regularly
The general rule of thumb is to change it every four to eight hours. It's OK to sleep in a tampon, but be sure to change to a fresh one when you wake up. Choosing an organic brand will also help reduce the amount of chemicals you expose your yoni to. EmpressBody stocks a range of organic tampons and sanitary towels!

Use organic products – no perfumes!
EmpressBody cannot emphasize this enough. Heavily perfumed products, like a normal shower gel will irritate the skin inside your vagina, which is more sensitive than the skin on the outside of your body. But this doesn't just apply to soap. Even something as simple as scented tampons or a heavily scented laundry detergent used on your undies can irritate the yoni. Try the EmpressBody Sensitive Yoni Wash! EmpressBody has created the EmpressBody Yoni Wash (vaginal wash) specifically with vaginal wellness in mind. It has 100% organic and natural ingredients, which will help maintain a healthy vaginal PH balance, support the vagina’s natural acidity and aid in preventing bacteria build up or yeast infections and is safe for daily use.

Don't wear your gym gear for too long
After a big work out, the last thing you want to do is worry about getting changed, but bacteria thrive in a dark, moist environments. Take a gentle shower and change into clean cotton underwear to avoid this.
Choose cotton underwear
Cotton is the most breathable material you can cover your yoni with, as opposed to synthetic lacey things that aren't as comfortable anyway. And thongs — while practical! — can whisk bacteria into the urethra because they're so close-fitting, and that heightens your risk for a UTI.

Pee after sex
During sex, bacteria can work its way into your urethra, this can cause infections or UTIs. The best way to prevent UTIs is to pee both before and after sex, in order to void all the urine in your bladder, and remove the possibility of bacteria staying in your urethra.

Don’t douche your yoni!
Gynecologists everywhere will tell you the same thing: It's bad for you and it's not necessary. The myth that douching is the only effective way of cleaning your yoni is completely untrue. It is actually quite dangerous as it introduces harmful chemicals called phthalates to your vagina.
