Septum stretching has become very popular recently. So now, you may be wondering:
How Do I Stretch My Septum?
It's best to relax your septum with hot water or in the shower before stretching. Apply a lubricant such as Holey Butt’r, KY, or jojoba oil to the taper. Take a deep breath and slowly insert the taper until the level end is in your hole (this may take a few minutes or a few hours depending on how it feels). Then take the tunnel or pincher and place it against the end of the taper and slowly push the taper through with the pincher or tunnel. Your jewelry should now be in and you can attach your o-ring/s. The stretching will probably sting, but it should not cause a lot of pain. Wash the area daily with soap and try not to touch it throughout the day to prevent infection. Wait at least a month before stretching again.
