Yes, Yoni Pearls Are A Thing -- Here's Why You Need Some

Detox your womb space.

Women's Health

Yoni care should be a part of every woman's self-care regimen. Yes, your vagina is self-cleaning but just like any other part of your body, there is regular maintenance that needs to be a priority. There is an entire market out there dedicated to vaginal health with products ranging from organic pads, cleansers, vaginal steams, yoni eggs, and countless other tools to help keep your yoni in healthy condition. Some of us tend to live toxic lifestyles in our everyday routines, such as not having healthy diets, and this can contribute to heavier cycles, cramps, or PMS symptoms. Let's face it, there is a lot going on down there, a daily routine can help in even the smallest of ways. Women have a monthly detox period, but it has to be maintained.

One product that has some benefits and is easy to add to your yoni regimen is the Pangaea Pearls™ from Embrace Pangaea. Over the last few years, vaginal steams have become popular in the American market as a way to detox your womb. However, yoni pearls have the same benefits as vaginal steam but come in a much more compact package. The founder of Embrace Pangaea, T.C. Atkinson had her own journey trying to maintain balance in her own self-care regimen, "I've always been one to solve my own problems. Solving my own problems was the key. In 2012, in a past relationship, my then partner's sperm caused an imbalance in my vagina. I experienced bouts with BV, and my pH being off. I'm Jamaican and I wanted natural, herbal options. I researched and found yoni pearls and decided to use them for myself. After my great results and seeing that they worked, I wanted to share with others." Here is what you should know if you are going to give these pearls a try.

What Are Yoni Detox Pearls & Why You Need To Detox Your Womb

So, what are yoni pearls?

Yoni pearls are basically a holistic organic way to maintain feminine health. It is considered a detox that has claims of improving a variety of conditions, including yeast infections, bacterial infections, infertility, fibroids, heavy/irregular menstruation, vaginal odor, ovarian cyst, vaginal dryness, urine incontinence, genital itching, and expelling fluid build-ups that may cause other unwanted issues. There have been some claims that yoni pearls have improved vaginal tightness and have enhanced sex life after use.

How do yoni pearls work?

The pearls are extremely potent in the sense that they have strong pulling capabilities that allow them to leech out impurities and toxins from your womb. Once the pearls are inserted, the herbs begin to break down the buildup of toxins that are inside that begin causing an unbalanced environment. Specifically, the Pangaea Pearls™:

  • Increases blood flow to the vaginal area.
  • Provides nutrients that can move from food into the area to revitalize cells.
  • Rids the vagina of bad bacteria and fungi.

How do you use yoni pearls?

To use and properly insert the yoni detox pearls is pretty straightforward. Here are the directions:

  • Wash your hands before removing the detox from the sealed package.
  • Unravel the strings around the pearl and tie a knot to close the pearl and for easy removal.
  • Place one pearl in the canal of your vagina and use your finger to push the detox pearl deeply into your vagina.
  • Leave the detox in your vagina for only one day.
  • Wear a pantyliner and allow the vagina to discharge any toxins for 24-48 hours.
  • Wait 24-48 hours before inserting the next yoni pearl.
  • Wash your hands before removing the detox.
  • Please wait 2-3 days before inserting another detox, and if you are currently experiencing any gynecological disorder, please seek the assistance of a licensed medical practitioner.

How often should a woman use yoni pearls and why? 

To be the most effective, yoni pearls should be used periodically. It is suggested that the Pangaea Pearls™ are used in a 6-7 day process. So you definitely need to plan to have enough time for the full detox to process in your body. You want to make sure your diet is aligned, you are drinking water and you are scheduling sex around your detox. It is also necessary that you are not on your cycle when you start the detox for a deeper cleanse.

What does each of the herbs in the yoni pearls contribute to cleansing your womb? 

The herbs in the yoni pearls serve as the most important component to help with the cleansing of the womb. Each herb has a specific job that creates the type of healthy environment that your body needs. There are three key 3 herbs in each pearl:

Motherwort - Motherwort plays a key role in rejuvenating the womb by toning, lubricating, and increasing elasticity.

Angelica - Angelica is key in regulating menstruation, balancing estrogen levels, and improving fertility.

Borneol - Borneol plays a key role in reducing pain, controlling hot flashes, tightening the vagina, and reducing uterine discharges.

How do you know if you need to use yoni pearls?

Yoni pearls are not an everyday product but more of a maintenance tool that should be used periodically. The pearls also are a holistic tool used for womb cleansing. It is very important to have your mental space clear and aligned with your body. If you are experiencing any internal conflicts, it is best to wait to use the pearls. Remember that using holistic healthcare regimens means that you are making a lifestyle decision and not a fly by night fix.

According to Atkinson, "Women fall into two groups who normally use Pangaea Pearls™. They are either women who experience imbalance, PCOS, BV, yeasts, or vaginal dryness. The other group is women who just need a detox to clean their womb."

Under what conditions should you NOT use yoni pearls?

Here are a few considerations you should know before using yoni pearls. Depending on what your health status is when you decide to use the pearls, there are a few conditions under which you should not use yoni pearls:

  • If you are on your cycle, do not use the pearls because they are not designed to absorb menstrual blood.
  • If you and your partner have consistent sex, it is best to communicate and schedule sex around your womb detox.
  • If you are someone who hasn't had your hymen broken - it's an insert - it is not recommend to break your hymen because of a detox.
  • If you are currently pregnant, do not use the detox. The herbs are extremely potent and drawing herbs.
  • If you are currently breastfeeding, it is not recommended to use as the pearls can potentially reduce breastmilk flow.

Detoxing your womb offers many benefits for your holistic self-care routine. If you are already a fan of vaginal steams, this option might be for you. For more information on the Pangaea Pearls™, check out Embrace Pangaea and their companion products to elevate your yoni care.

ACLU By ACLUSponsored

Over the past four years, we grew accustomed to a regular barrage of blatant, segregationist-style racism from the White House. Donald Trump tweeted that “the Squad," four Democratic Congresswomen who are Black, Latinx, and South Asian, should “go back" to the “corrupt" countries they came from; that same year, he called Elizabeth Warren “Pocahontas," mocking her belief that she might be descended from Native American ancestors.

But as outrageous as the racist comments Trump regularly spewed were, the racially unjust governmental actions his administration took and, in the case of COVID-19, didn't take, impacted millions more — especially Black and Brown people.

To begin to heal and move toward real racial justice, we must address not only the harms of the past four years, but also the harms tracing back to this country's origins. Racism has played an active role in the creation of our systems of education, health care, ownership, and employment, and virtually every other facet of life since this nation's founding.

Our history has shown us that it's not enough to take racist policies off the books if we are going to achieve true justice. Those past policies have structured our society and created deeply-rooted patterns and practices that can only be disrupted and reformed with new policies of similar strength and efficacy. In short, a systemic problem requires a systemic solution. To combat systemic racism, we must pursue systemic equality.

What is Systemic Racism?

A system is a collection of elements that are organized for a common purpose. Racism in America is a system that combines economic, political, and social components. That system specifically disempowers and disenfranchises Black people, while maintaining and expanding implicit and explicit advantages for white people, leading to better opportunities in jobs, education, and housing, and discrimination in the criminal legal system. For example, the country's voting systems empower white voters at the expense of voters of color, resulting in an unequal system of governance in which those communities have little voice and representation, even in policies that directly impact them.

Systemic Equality is a Systemic Solution

In the years ahead, the ACLU will pursue administrative and legislative campaigns targeting the Biden-Harris administration and Congress. We will leverage legal advocacy to dismantle systemic barriers, and will work with our affiliates to change policies nearer to the communities most harmed by these legacies. The goal is to build a nation where every person can achieve their highest potential, unhampered by structural and institutional racism.

To begin, in 2021, we believe the Biden administration and Congress should take the following crucial steps to advance systemic equality:

Voting Rights

The administration must issue an executive order creating a Justice Department lead staff position on voting rights violations in every U.S. Attorney office. We are seeing a flood of unlawful restrictions on voting across the country, and at every level of state and local government. This nationwide problem requires nationwide investigatory and enforcement resources. Even if it requires new training and approval protocols, a new voting rights enforcement program with the participation of all 93 U.S. Attorney offices is the best way to help ensure nationwide enforcement of voting rights laws.

These assistant U.S. attorneys should begin by ensuring that every American in the custody of the Bureau of Prisons who is eligible to vote can vote, and monitor the Census and redistricting process to fight the dilution of voting power in communities of color.

We are also calling on Congress to pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act to finally create a fair and equal national voting system, the cause for which John Lewis devoted his life.

Student Debt

Black borrowers pay more than other students for the same degrees, and graduate with an average of $7,400 more in debt than their white peers. In the years following graduation, the debt gap more than triples. Nearly half of Black borrowers will default within 12 years. In other words, for Black Americans, the American dream costs more. Last week, Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, along with House Reps. Ayanna Pressley, Maxine Waters, and others, called on President Biden to cancel up to $50,000 in federal student loan debt per borrower.

We couldn't agree more. By forgiving $50,000 of student debt, President Biden can unleash pent up economic potential in Black communities, while relieving them of a burden that forestalls so many hopes and dreams. Black women in particular will benefit from this executive action, as they are proportionately the most indebted group of all Americans.

Postal Banking

In both low and high income majority-Black communities, traditional bank branches are 50 percent more likely to close than in white communities. The result is that nearly 50 percent of Black Americans are unbanked or underbanked, and many pay more than $2,000 in fees associated with subprime financial institutions. Over their lifetime, those fees can add up to as much as two years of annual income for the average Black family.

The U.S. Postal Service can and should meet this crisis by providing competitive, low-cost financial services to help advance economic equality. We call on President Biden to appoint new members to the Postal Board of Governors so that the Post Office can do the work of providing essential services to every American.

Fair Housing

Across the country, millions of people are living in communities of concentrated poverty, including 26 percent of all Black children. The Biden administration should again implement the 2015 Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing rule, which required localities that receive federal funds for housing to investigate and address barriers to fair housing and patterns or practices that promote bias. In 1980, the average Black person lived in a neighborhood that was 62 percent Black and 31 percent white. By 2010, the average Black person's neighborhood was 48 percent Black and 34 percent white. Reinstating the Obama-era Fair Housing Rule will combat this ongoing segregation and set us on a path to true integration.

Congress should also pass the American Housing and Economic Mobility Act, or a similar measure, to finally redress the legacy of redlining and break down the walls of segregation once and for all.

Broadband Access

To realize broadband's potential to benefit our democracy and connect us to one another, all people in the United States must have equal access and broadband must be made affordable for the most vulnerable. Yet today, 15 percent of American households with school-age children do not have subscriptions to any form of broadband, including one-quarter of Black households (an additional 23 percent of African Americans are “smartphone-only" internet users, meaning they lack traditional home broadband service but do own a smartphone, which is insufficient to attend class, do homework, or apply for a job). The Biden administration, Federal Communications Commission, and Congress must develop and implement plans to increase funding for broadband to expand universal access.

Enhanced, Refundable Child Tax Credits

The United States faces a crisis of child poverty. Seventeen percent of all American children are impoverished — a rate higher than not just peer nations like Canada and the U.K., but Mexico and Russia as well. Currently, more than 50 percent of Black and Latinx children in the U.S. do not qualify for the full benefit, compared to 23 percent of white children, and nearly one in five Black children do not receive any credit at all.

To combat this crisis, President Biden and Congress should enhance the child tax credit and make it fully refundable. If we enhance the child tax credit, we can cut child poverty by 40 percent and instantly lift over 50 percent of Black children out of poverty.

Reparations

We cannot repair harms that we have not fully diagnosed. We must commit to a thorough examination of the impact of the legacy of chattel slavery on racial inequality today. In 2021, Congress must pass H.R. 40, which would establish a commission to study reparations and make recommendations for Black Americans.

The Long View

For the past century, the ACLU has fought for racial justice in legislatures and in courts, including through several landmark Supreme Court cases. While the court has not always ruled in favor of racial justice, incremental wins throughout history have helped to chip away at different forms of racism such as school segregation ( Brown v. Board), racial bias in the criminal legal system (Powell v. Alabama, i.e. the Scottsboro Boys), and marriage inequality (Loving v. Virginia). While these landmark victories initiated necessary reforms, they were only a starting point.

Systemic racism continues to pervade the lives of Black people through voter suppression, lack of financial services, housing discrimination, and other areas. More than anything, doing this work has taught the ACLU that we must fight on every front in order to overcome our country's legacies of racism. That is what our Systemic Equality agenda is all about.

In the weeks ahead, we will both expand on our views of why these campaigns are crucial to systemic equality and signal the path this country must take. We will also dive into our work to build organizing, advocacy, and legal power in the South — a region with a unique history of racial oppression and violence alongside a rich history of antiracist organizing and advocacy. We are committed to four principles throughout this campaign: reconciliation, access, prosperity, and empowerment. We hope that our actions can meet our ambition to, as Dr. King said, lead this nation to live out the true meaning of its creed.

Lawd, lawd. I'm assuming that I'm not being too presumptuous when I start this all out by saying, I'm pretty sure that more than just a few of us can relate to this title and topic. I know that personally, there are several men from my sexual past who would've been out of my space a lot sooner had the sex not been…shoot, so damn good. And it's because of that very thing that you'll never ever convince me that sex can't mess with your head. The oxytocin highs (that happen when we kiss, cuddle and orgasm) alone can easily explain why a lot of us will make a sexual connection with someone and stay involved with them for weeks, months, years even, even if the mental and emotional dynamic is subpar, at best.

As a Black woman slaying in business, you're more than likely focused on the bottom line: Serving your customers and making sure the bag doesn't stop coming in. Well, there's obviously more to running a business than just making boss moves, but as the CEO or founder, you might not have the time, energy, or resources to fill in the blanks.

"Black men, we're in constant warfare. Every day is a fight outside of my house, so why would I want to come home to more fighting when that is the very place where I should be resting? There are loved ones who I don't speak to as much anymore because they aren't peaceful people. A huge part of the reason why I am happier without my ex is she was rarely a source of peace. The older I get, the more I realize that peace really is the foundation of everything; especially relationships, because how can I nurture anything if I'm in a constant state of influx and chaos? Guys don't care how fine a woman is or how great the sex may be if she's not peaceful because there is nothing more valuable than peace. If the closest person to me is not a source of it, that can ultimately play a role in all kinds of disruption and destruction. No man wants that."
