3 Non-Toxic Lubricants You Already Have in Your Kitchen

Lubricants make sex better. Way better. Unfortunately, most sexual lubricants are pretty unhealthy. They are usually filled with nasty ingredients like parabens, artificial scents, petroleum, phenoxyethanol and glycerin. It’s no wonder there is a growing population that seeks natural lube alternatives.

The sensitive skin of your nether regions is especially absorbent. Male or female, anything applied down there is absorbed directly into your body. So, what’s inside your lube really matters. If you’ve decided that you don’t want your lube to share ingredients with car batteries, look no further than your pantry for these 3 more natural alternatives:

Coconut oil

Is there anything coconut oil can’t do? When it’s time to get down, coconut oil can serve as the perfect massage oil/sexual lubricant. As an oil, it will last much longer than water-based lubricants and has a more viscous, luxurious feel on the skin. Due to its antifungal properties, coconut oil may also prevent certain infections from developing in the vagina. Opt for virgin and unrefined when you can. Above all, do not use coconut oil with condoms. It will break down the latex and render the condom ineffective.

Almond oil

Theoretically, you could experiment with most cooking oils, but sweet almond has a sexy scent that beats a scent reminiscent of stir fry any day. While coconut oil may reign supreme, almond oil is nothing to sneer at. It is loaded with sweet smelling antioxidants that work tirelessly to soothe delicate or irritated skin. Again, do not use any oil-based lubes with condoms.

Pure aloe vera gel

If you’re looking for a natural lube that’s not oil-based and safe for use with condoms, aloe vera is your answer. Okay, maybe it’s not sitting in your kitchen, but odds are there is a bottle in your bathroom in your sunburn arsenal. It has soothing antibacterial properties, which is a lot more than your bottle of KY can say. Just make sure there are no added ingredients or preservatives in your aloe vera. And if you have a latex allergy, it may be safer to steer clear of aloe altogether, as it may cause a reaction.

When looking into natural lubricants, take caution to avoid ingredients that you or your partner are allergic to. Also be conscious of avoiding sugary products. Introducing sugar to the vagina is a sure way to encourage yeast infections.

Lubricants should make sex easier and more fun, not harm your health. What are your go-to natural lubricants?
