We can't believe people need to be told this is a bad idea.
Doctors are telling people to IGNORE the herbal holistic trend called Oak Gall. Oak Gall is a euphemism (nicer way to say) for putting a wasp nest in your vajayjay.
Here's how it works. Wasps lay eggs in oak trees. Calcification grows around the wasp larvae. It then drops (or is harvested) and weirdos mix it with sandalwood and nutmeg to make a paste.
Idiots pushing this trend say the benefits of putting a wasp nest (this crap) all up in there are:
- tighten” and remove smells from the vagina, particularly after childbirth with the assistance of kegel exercises
- one site bills it as “Oak Gall for Vaginal Tightening and Rejuvenation”
They're selling this garbage on Etsy, where every sarcastic health professional says to buy health products.
Dr. Jen Gunter said on her blog, "This is a dangerous practice with real potential to harm. Here’s a pro-tip, if something burns when you apply it to the vagina it is generally bad for the vagina."
