So what is a yoni wash? Let's begin with what is a yoni. In Hindu, yoni is the term used when describing the woman genitalia (vagina) or womb. A yoni wash is a cleanser that differs from soap (at least ours is). We created a yoni wash so that your external area can be cleansed with a product that pH balanced for that specific area
