Body jewelry made of organic materials (eg wood, horn and bone) offers you best comfort and light weight opposed to piercing jewelry made of plastics or metals. Odor development when wearing is highly reduced. This item is available in various sizes and also in custom-made large sizes. During normal use the jewelry is safe but cannot be sterilized.
Wooden pieces which are supposed to be inserted into the body are best treated before first use and regularly later on with Jojoba or Linseed Oil. These oils harden when exposed to oxygen and protect the wood. This can darken the material a bit. We also recommend to additionally seal the wood with bees wax. Depending on how often you wear your jewelry this should be repeated regularly.
