Still Have Questions About Wooden Plugs?

Get in touch with us and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Are wooden plugs good for your ears?

Wooden plugs are usually fine for healed ears. Like with all materials though a lot will depend on your body.

Wooden plugs are porous and so will need regular cleaning with a damp cloth as well as rubbing with jojoba oil.

How do you take care of wood plugs?

Wooden plugs are easily damaged if not taken care of properly. Wooden plugs should not be allowed to get wet or immersed in water and should be removed when showering, swimming etc.

Aside from being kept dry the plugs should be regularly cleaned with a damp cloth before being air dried. When dry you should rub in some Jojoba Oil. This will help protect the wood from absorbing water.

How long do you have to keep tapers in before putting in plugs?

Wearing tapers with o rings can cause complications and isn't generally advised as tapers can be easily caught. If you're leaving tapers in we'd suggest waiting 2-6 months before switching to plugs at your stretched size. A lot will depend on your body. You need to wait and give your body time to heal the stretched ear lobe.

However, if you use an insertion taper you can chase it with a plug and wear the finished product right away. We'd usually recommend a glass plug to chase the insertion taper.

Once your taper goes through without any resistance, pain, discomfort or blood then you're ready to try to insert the plugs at that size.

How do you treat wood ear plugs?

Wooden plugs / gauges should be wiped clean after each use and left to air dry. They should have jojoba oil rubbed into them regularly to protect them. Treating your wooden plugs with jojoba oil will be the best way to keep them looking great for a long time.
