What is an Egg Cleanse on TikTok?
Egg cleansing (also known as limpías) was originally used in Mesoamerican culture, whereby shamans cleared your energy fields and removed the surrounding physical toxins using raw eggs in their shells.
The basic details of an egg cleanse requires rolling an uncooked, whole egg over your body with the intention of it sucking up the bad energies that plague you.
Shaheen Miro, writer and artist, claims that the theory behind the egg cleanse is that the egg “has long been regarded as a symbol of life, the connotation being that it takes on energy.”
TikTok users have been performing egg cleanses and discussing the results with their viewers.
