If you’re the kind of person who hates chemicals and toxins in your moisturizer, maybe it’s time to think about what you’re using to lubricate your sex parts. If you haven’t considered making your own lube, you’re missing out on the fun and all the benefits.
That’s right lovebirds. We’re talking about making our own personal lubricant today. “What can I use as lube?” Check out these suggestions for homemade lube. You’ll never suffer a dry spell again.
Ready to take a peek at all of the DIY naughtiness? Let’s take a look!
Lets talk about the bad things about the counter lube that make you prone to many diseases. It contains parabens which are known to:
- Cause hormone disruption
- Kills vaginal flora
- Decrease fertility
- Feed candida
- Cause cell damage
So what’s the magical ingredient for natural lube?
As for ingredients that can generally be used safely in lubricant, here’s our list:
- Pure aloe vera gel,
- Olive oil,
- Flax-seed oil,
- Essential oils,
- Vitamin E oil,
- Almond oil,
- Distilled water
- Coconut oil
It’s a gentle, moisturizing oil that gets bonus points for being antiviral and antifungal, so your private part will thank you for taking care of her.
Plain coconut oil will work, but you can add other things as well. Peppermint essential oil is known to help treat yeast infections, so adding a few drops (just a few!) can take it up a notch.
A warning: coconut oil does not mix well with latex condoms. Use polyurethane or other non-latex options instead.
You can use pure aloe that you purchase, but buying your own plant provides you with a more sustainable option.
Harvesting the aloe gel from the plant requires you to cut a leaf from the plant and strip off one layer. The gel sits between those layers, and you can use it directly. You can store leftover gel in the refrigerator for a few days only. Also Read: Why Women Scratch And Bite Their Boyfriends During Sex?
Oil for your shower time or dry skin are all suitable as lube. Make sure the oil is herbal and organic. And again, since it’s an oil-based lube, it won’t be compatible with condoms or silicone toys. Also Read: Birth Control Remedies & Tips To Enjoy Sex Life Without Any Worries.
When all else fails, there’s always spit. Though the idea to use spit might gross you out, it’s actually a perfectly okay substitute for lube.
Some ingredients you may want to avoid include:
- Glycerin: a type of sugar that may contribute to yeast infections
- Petroleum: has links to cancer and degrades condoms
- Propylene glycol: may cause irritation
- L-Arginine: can trigger herpes outbreaks in users
