The BEST Homemade Natural Lubricants
The Best Natural Lube For You, According To Gynecologists
Nutiva Coconut Oil, ,
“Coconut oil is a favorite of lots of women,” says Alyssa Dweck, M.D., a gynecologist in New York. Many women like it because it has a good taste for oral and smells nice, she says. It’s also pretty easy to use, given that it’s solid at room temperature and liquid once it’s warmed up by your vagina. Just keep this in mind, per women’s health expert Jennifer Wider, M.D.: Coconut oil can break down the integrity of a latex condom, making it more likely to break.
Aloe Cadabra Natural Personal Lubricant, ,
Aloe vera is a “good choice” as a natural lubricant, as long as it’s actually 100 percent pure aloe vera, Wider says. (Some aloe veras contain artificial ingredients that can irritate your vagina, she explains.) This is also safe to use with latex condoms and is usually very gentle on the skin.
That said, some people are sensitive to aloe, so it doesn’t hurt to test a little bit on a small patch of your skin to see if you have a reaction first, Dweck says. If you can’t find pure aloe vera near you, or just want to try a product that relies heavily on it, Dweck recommends checking out , a natural lube that’s made with 95 percent organic aloe vera.
Sliquid H20 Intimate Lube, ,
This lube is water-based and has just five ingredients. Sliquid also makes an organic line that uses aloe vera and botanical extracts. It also gets very good reviews from women, Wider points out. Plus, the fact that it’s water-based means that it won’t interfere with condoms.
Naissance Vitamin E Oil, ,
Vitamin E doubles as a moisturizer and a lot of times people will use it as a lube, Dweck says. But just like coconut oil, it can break down a condom, making it more vulnerable to tearing, Wider says.
If you're interested in a natural lube and you're not sure if it's right for you (or your vagina), check in with your doctor.
