Are feminine hygiene washes safe ? Using soaps, shampoos, vaginal douching solutions, herbal balls, sprays to clean the vagina alters the pH and allows an environment for bacteria to thrive. Altering the pH leads to more UTI, yeast growth and discharge.

Vaginal Discharge in small amounts is normal. It’s after all the built-in intelligence of your vagina to flush out toxins and bacteria. Much in the same way,  our nose ejects slimy mucus which has entrapped bacteria, our eyes eject dirt from the corners and armpits sweat out toxins.
