Need A Little Help on Valentine’s Day? Organic Lubricants to the Rescue

Use organic lubricants this valentine's day

There are a number of reasons why you may need a little assistance down there—especially on Valentine’s Day…er…Night. Condoms can be irritating, hormonal changes can cause dryness and frequent activity can lead to soreness and sensitivity. Ouch.

Our most sensitive parts can benefit from extra sensitive lubrication from time to time, and it’s even more helpful if we’re using products that are free of toxic ingredients for a truly orgasmic organic experience.

Having sex is not only a wonderful way to connect with your partner on Valentine’s Day, but research shows it is also a great immune enhancer, mood booster, can relieve inflammation and pain and can help you maintain a healthy weight.

Try some of these organic lubricants:

Pure organic oils like sesame, almond, coconut—even olive oil—are some of the best lubricating agents around, but they will destroy latex condoms. So only use oil if you’re in a condom-free relationship.

If you like a little herbal enhancement, check out Sliquid’s glycerin and paraben free organic lubricant formulas. They are blended with certified organic botanicals to help heal and rejuvenate your sensitive areas while helping enhance your pleasure.

Firefly organics use shea and cocoa butter for an extra silky glide without propylene glycol or petroleum ingredients and it’s recommended by gynecologists.

Yes organic lubrication products come in an oil or water base, and they are free of chemicals and preservatives. Yes also offers the only organic “fertility friendly” lube safe for use while trying to conceive.

Good Clean Love offers lubricants, oils and our favorite, “body candy.” All edible ingredients include avocado butter, essential oils and organic jojoba and coconut oil. Yumm. Catch some great love tips with Good Clean Love founder, Wendy Strgar on podcasts available on the GCL Web site.
