We wanted to go deep in our discussion with Nefeteri and take it back, like way back to when this yoni alchemist was a wee one in her mama’s womb to get to the core of self care, yoni power and positivity. It’s time to get real and right into it, pun intended. 

My mother made a choice for me when I was in her womb. From the way she ate, thought and the actions she made to make sure I was going to be raised in a toxic free environment. If it wasn’t for my mothers influence I don’t think I would be able to curve negativity the way I do now. Being around negativity , talking negative and being negative never got anyone any positive results.

As Nefeteri got older, she became more interested in holistic and feminine health, using YouTube as a positive platform for the pum pum and discovered her purpose in teaching thousands of women (her Instagram following of over 300k says so) that their yoni matters.

I have always been interested since high school but I never knew how to express my interest about it. I felt like I would be an odd ball for wanting to talk about something so personal . But then I discovered YouTube!! I made my own channel in 2009 and started a series called Vagina Therapy. It helped me express my thoughts about feminine hygiene. I’m a shy person so it also helped me break out of an antisocial shell (at least for a few minutes at a time).

The series opened her eyes and her lotus eggs to all of the unhealthy things women were forced to use for personal hygiene thus Nerissa Nefeteri Inc was born. A special space where her Nene Fem Health website shop and Miami based store offers plant based feminine hygiene products, vegan makeup and skincare, a plethora of pum pum enlightenment and then some.

“The main question I would ask myself was “Are these really all the options we have?” I became obsessed with finding out about all the natural alternatives and trying to understand why they weren’t being advertised in the mainstream market.”

Yoni’s everywhere should be glad she did. The Yoni Practitioner has been creating a sacred sweet spot and an invigorating territory by providing health information, tools, tutorials, products, herbs, and newsletters for sisters all over. Take note!  

“Our health doesn’t need to rely on antibiotics all the time. Proper hygiene, sex and food education will prevent many FemHealth issues in the black community. Easy access to healthier products need to be a priority as well. I shouldn’t have to go to the middle class neighborhood to get real cotton sanitary napkins because the stores in the black neighborhoods don’t sell them.”

That. Part.

Nefeteri continues to school us on self care as the instructor of her “Yoni Popping” class, a traveling fitness workshop that brings women together interested in holistically strengthening their core, or the alignment of their mind, body, and soul. 

“Many people have a false understanding of self-care and associate it with indulgence rather than whole-body health.”

It’s clear, Nefeteri is here with the goal of educating and empowering the sisterhood community of embracing and exercising their feminine magic. From watching Nefeteri’s 1 on 1 Lotus Egg Tutorial to purchasing some yoni herbs for holistic healing, The rejuvenation and relaxation is real. Turning your self care game up is a whole mood and “ it’s not only on Sundays!”

Womb wellness is not just a sometime thing, it’s everything. Thankfully the Yoni Goddess is in our reproductive corner, helping us navigate our inner realms so we might truly cultivate the power of the precious pum pum on a regular. Bottom line, investing in yourself and your yoni is the real bag and “self- care is a daily lifestyle.” 

“It’s the way you think , eat , solve problems , get through your day, love etc. Everything you do in your life is a part of your self-care!”

Nefeteri said what she said. Yoni egg drop.
