Over the years I’ve been asked about the proper care and cleaning of the vagina. Women often want to know how to douche and what preparations to use.
But the vagina is like a self-cleaning oven.
Cleaning with water externally during bathing is quite adequate. Use a small amount of mild unscented soap if you must. Soap dries out your mucous membranes which are already more likely to absorb toxins.
Now new research just out this week suggests a link between use of talc and ovarian cancer. Women reporting long-term frequent application of talc powder to the genital area have a two-to-threefold increased risk of ovarian cancer.
So please refrain from special preparations, perfumes, and potions. Your vagina knows how to take care of itself.
Please forward this to anyone you know who has a vagina or loves someone with one. Thank you!
