DIY Gets Sexy: 3 Simple Concoctions for Making Your Own (All Natural) Lube

3 Simple Concoctions for Making Your Own (All Natural) Lube

While a big brain and confident craftsmanship have always been attractive qualities, today I'm going to show you the sexiest DIY project I've ever used ingredients for.

DIY lubricant can save you money (lube is 95% water), help you avoid the creepy glance from your CVS cashier, and it's the best way to make sure you only use all natural ingredients on your lady bits (if that's your thing).

Concoction 1: Use Corn Starch

So why shell out twenty bucks on some fancy packaging and a name brand when all you are really trying to do is get it on? Instead you can grab some corn starch and water and create your own super cheap and super lubey lube.

Instructables' user flashmonkey created a easy guide for DIY lubricant.

Make sure to add enough water to the starch mix. If you add too little water, the mix could become more glue like than lube like, which would suck (no pun intended). The mix should be mostly clear and a little cloudy when you bring it to a boil.

This whole process shouldn't take more than 10-15 minutes. Once done, you can pour the mix into some tupperware for use later. Just make sure to let it cool for a long time before storing it. Keep cool, but the fridge is not recommended.

Concoction 2: Boil Flax Seeds

It's good to know that flax seeds are only useful for the health nut you met at the gym. Bring these bad boys to a boil in a few cups of water and then train immediately. You can toss the seeds away and store your new special sauce in the fridge for months.

Concoction 3: Chocolate Mint Love Butter

The name sounds delicious and if you really want to you can eat this next lubricant. By using stomach friendly ingredients like honey, peppermint oil, cocoa, and coconut oil.

Combining these ingredients creates a delightful whipped cream that can be used with dessert...if you know what I mean. Check out the full guide at Paleo Mama. Just be careful with the mint. Too much of a good thing can be... a little too hot.

Other Cheap Alternatives

There are so many different options when it comes to lathering the goodie parts that don't require you to buy super obvious products. Here is just a short list of easy and incognito replacements:

  • baby oil
  • coconut oil
  • (pretty much any all-natural oil that smells good)
  • ultrasonographic gel (used for sonographs, but works just the same and is way cheaper to buy)
  • egg whites (bring to a low boil before use)
  • saliva

As a word of caution, it should also be noted that only water based lubricants are normally safe to use with condoms. So be sure to watch out for that as some jellies and home made lubes can actually damage the properties of a normal latex condom.

Now go have fun you kings and queens of the first DIY dance!

I would be cautious with cornstarch - it can contribute to yeast infections. If you want to use a natural lube that includes an oil, just use non-latex condoms. So many people have latex sensitivity (or will eventually develop it, mostly due to repeated latex exposure) that it's worthwhile to check out non-latex condoms anyway. Many people deal with latex sensitivity for years before they realize what's causing it.

Great idea. My sister's OB/GYNE recommended olive oil too. I will have to call her - we have been making jokes about it ever since. (not so sure about corn starch...when used diaphragm, would dust it with Argo brand before putting away...also, mom's denture adhesive powder is primarily corn starch...other brand contains zinc and zinc warning...even Elmer's white glue is slippery at first

I'm wondering about the Lubrigyn product. Has anyone tried it or copied it at home?

Yeah I just spit m8

Coconut Oil + Cocoa Butter blend (60/40) + small about of 100% organic high-quality essential oil that you find...mmm...... (vetiver, sandalwood, frankincense, rose....etc. Experiment!

NEVER, NEVER Put Essential Oils On/In Anything Without Greatly Diluting It With A Safe Carrier Oil! Many Essential Oils Will Irritate The Skin When Applied Directly. The only Essential Oil I have used straight on my skin without irritation has been pure Lavender Oil. Very strongly recommend a great deal of research or buying a book on the safe uses of Essential Oils before experimenting with them. I have never read any articles that even suggest using Essential Oils inside the vagina.

Crisco works great! I keep a little tupperware bowl of it in my nightstand. Work it between your palms it becomes clear and liquidy right away. Cleanups not bad either.
