A vaginal product called the Goddess Vaginal Detox Pearl promises to help cleanse women’s wombs of their past sexual partners. The product sold online uses a combination of herbs and supplements wrapped into a tiny ball. Women are encouraged to shove the pearl up their vagina and pray away their ex’s bad energy.
According to an instructional video on the Goddess Detox website, the “CEO” Vanessa White instructs women on how to use the product.
White, who also goes by “Olanikeeosi” shills detox pearls that contain a variety of herbs and supplements. Some of the ingredients include Cnidium, Stemona, Motherwort, Angelica, and Rhizoma. She claims these herbs will reduce menstrual cramps, increase libido, kill parasites, remove toxins, and help women ‘Detox their Ex.”
To prove her claims, White crafted a video about why women need to detox their exes from their “wombs.” White believes that anytime a woman has sex with a man, he leaves an imprint on your ‘yoni,’ ‘womb,’ and ‘uterus area.’
She says that her amazing cloth wrapped herbs have ‘vibrational energy’ that can suck out the bad juju left by a former sexual partner.
Next, she pulls out a ‘pearl’ connected to a long tampon-like string. White instructs women to speak their intention over the pearl before they insert the vajayjay healer into their coochie.
By saying, “I remove (insert person’s name) from my womb area during this cleanse,” women can expect to be freed from the nasty funk left by a former lover.
Then White instructs women to place the pearl inside them. While doing the six-day cleanse, she suggests that ‘you meditate on that intention.’
After the six days, White says that nasty ex will be detoxed from your ‘womb area.’
Apparently, magical and vibrational herbs are accomplishing the impossible. These pearls can suck out fictitious energy from the vagina and make women get over an ex in six short days.
Sounds super legit, right?
Clearly, the products have no healing properties at all. In fact, reviews done by writers have discussed the pain, burning, and discharge they experience while using the products. One blogger suggested that her vaginal lining was burning off and coming out of her.
Additionally, White’s claims of sticking the pearl in the womb are baseless. The vagina is not the womb. The cervix blocks the vagina and uterus from connecting. Therefore none of the healing vibrations are making all the way up to the uterus. Also, do I need to point out that men don’t put their penis’ in the womb?White suggests you leave the pearl in your body for more than 24 hours. No products should ever be inside the vagina for that length of time. Have you ever heard of toxic shock syndrome? There is a reason women that use tampons are instructed to change them every 2-4 hours.
Next, doctors instruct women not to douche. The Goddess Detox Pearl is a douche that stays inside for days. Douching can remove good bacteria and throw off natural PH balance. By using these products, women risk contracting yeast or bacterial infections.
Even though their products can cause these infections, Goddess Detox says the infections are a sign that the body is healing. As with all good woo-peddlers, Goddess Detox uses the whole ‘pain is healing’ slogan to shill the products.
The FDA does not approve the Goddess Detox Pearl for vaginal use. Nor are Goddess Pearls approved to treat, cure, or help any vaginal ailment. However, White suggests you not listen to the FDA and watch the video testimonials as proof the products work.
In the review sections, photos of vaginal discharge fill the page. Some of the most disturbing images appear to be actual vaginal lining.
There is nothing good that will come from using these products. Please don’t waste your time or money on an unregulated and unproven product. Our vaginas do not need to be ‘detoxed’ or ‘cleansed.’
Save your hard earned cash and buy something useful like a new bag, shoes, or jacket.
Skip the vaginal detox and let your body cleanse itself.
