    An Easy Coconut Oil Lube Recipe To Try

    A good lube makes sex feel a million times better. And you can’t go wrong with an organic coconut oil based lube. 

    Want to make it yourself? 

    Here’s an easy coconut oil lube recipe:

    You’ll need:

    • 3 parts organic coconut oil (or fractionated coconut oil)
    • 2 parts aloe vera gel
    • 2 parts organic olive oil
    • 5 drops ylang ylang or lavender essential oil
    • Mason jar

    How to make:

    1. Heat the desired quantity in the microwave, but ONLY if you’re using organic coconut oil that’s in solid form. Skip this step if you’re using organic fractionated coconut oil.

    2. In a mason jar, add the aloe vera gel, virgin olive oil, coconut oil, and ylang ylang or lavender essential oil.

    3. Mix well and store in a cool, dry place. 


    • Always use a clean spoon to take out a little as needed. As tempting as it might be (especially in the heat of the moment), never use your fingers to scoop out the product, as you can contaminate it when you reach for more.

    • You can either use one big mason jar or a few smaller mason jars to hold your coconut oil lube concoction. Small jars can help keep contamination to a minimum.

    • Be sure the aloe vera gel you use is pure and contains no alcohol or other additives. Make your own ​aloe vera gel by cutting open an aloe vera leaf and scrapping the meat.

    • This lube mix makes a great homemade anal lube. It can also work well for vaginal sex.

    • Avoid using this product with a latex condom and sex toy, as the oil will degrade any latex product. You can opt for a polyurethane condom.

    • Before you go to town with this homemade lubricant, do a patch test to check for allergies.

    Two Homemade Coconut Oil Lube Rules

    Before you attempt this coconut oil lube recipe, you need to know these two rules about natural oils you should follow:

    1. Only Use Organic Coconut Oil 

    Stick with virgin, extra virgin or unrefined coconut oil. 


    Pure coconut oil is pressed from coconut meat. So it contains no solvents, bleach, or chemicals like refined coconut oil.  


    For complete safety, ensure the coconut oil is certified organic by the USDA. 

    Look for the stamp on coconut oil labels when browsing the supermarket aisles. 

    Would you rather avoid the hassle of looking for USDA-certified organic coconut oil?

    We hear you. 

    You can opt for the all natural Coconu Oil Based Personal Lubricant

    It contains 100% USDA-certified organic coconut oil and comes in a beautiful, discreet bottle. 

    That’s not all. This oil based lubricant also:

    • Contains no alcohol, gluten, phylates, petroleum, parabens, fragrances and dyes
    • Contains no genetically modified organisms
    • Is 100% edible, cruelty-free, and hypoallergenic 
    • Is safe with a non latex condom and sex toy
    • Moisturizes dry or sensitive tissues — especially ideal if you experience vaginal dryness
    • Absorbs easily into the body, so you avoid stains and overall mess
    • Works great for vaginal penetration and anal sex
    • Doubles as a massage oil before the main event

    Aside from coconut oil, this lube contains nourishing ingredients like:

    • Sweet almond oil
    • Beeswax
    • Sunflower seed oil
    • Sea buckthorn oil
    • Shea butter
    • Cocoa butter
    • Kukui seed oil 

    2. Add More Nutrients, If Desired

    As you’ve seen in the homemade lube recipe above, you can mix coconut oil with other ingredients. 

    Here are a few products to consider mixing with your coconut oil lube:

    • Evening primrose oil
    • Almond oil
    • Vitamin E oil
    • Sunflower seed oil
    • Flax seed oil

    Why Make A DIY Coconut Oil Lube Yourself?

    Sadly, some commercial personal lubricants contain harmful ingredients which you may want to avoid, such as: 

    • Glycerin: Glycerin is a compound derived from vegetable oil or animal fats. It’s a humectant (retains moisture) and is often found in warming or flavored lubes. Glycerin can lead to an overgrowth of yeast which can promote yeast infections.

    • Parabens: Parabens are chemicals used as preservatives that may disrupt your hormones. It may even increase your chances of getting breast cancer.

    • Fragrances and dyes: Additional fragrances and dyes can be problematic if you have sensitive skin, as you can develop skin irritation. 

    If you do buy a coconut oil based lube instead of making it yourself, watch out that it doesn’t contain these ingredients. Save yourself the trouble and opt for the Coconu Oil Based Lube

    Is Coconut Oil As Lube A Good Idea?

    Well, this depends on each person. 

    Ask yourself:

    Am I susceptible to nut allergies?

    Is my skin very sensitive?

    If you answered yes to both questions, then a water based lube, like the Coconu Water Based Personal Lubricant, will be a better option.

    After all, anything you put in your vagina will disrupt its natural pH balance. So the less likely it is to cause an imbalance, the better!

    However, if none of the above are concerns, unrefined coconut oil can offer a host of benefits. Some of them include:

    • It’s anti-inflammatory: Virgin coconut oil has high levels of antioxidants present that reduces inflammation.

    • It’s antifungal and antibacterial: According to a study, the antifungal properties in unrefined coconut oil may treat Candida albicans (a fungus responsible for fungal infections). This is especially true if you’re resistant to certain medications.

    • It promotes vaginal stimulation: Coconut oil is smooth and moisturizing, so it’ll keep you in the mood for a long time.

    Many organic, natural products can work as a sex lube. 

    But what are some ingredients you should never put anywhere near your vagina or anus?

    5 Products To Avoid in Homemade Lube Recipes

    Whether in a DIY lube or as stand-alone alternatives, avoid these products at all costs:

    • Baby oil: Baby oil will irritate the vulva and cause issues like soreness, itching, and burning. It can also cause vaginal infections like bacterial vaginosis and yeast infection. (Thank you, next!)

    • Butter: A dairy product in your vagina or anus? Um no. Don’t use butter if you want to avoid an infection.

    • Sugar-based treats: Listen - Sugar (honey, jam, or jelly) can completely upset your vagina’s health and lead to a yeast infection. Plus, it’s tough to wash off, so you may be left with sugar particles for a while. (Eeks!)

    • Egg whites: Aside from the smell, unrefrigerated eggs can carry salmonella. (Genital salmonella is rare, but it can happen.) So steer clear of egg whites.

    • Vegetable oil: Vegetable oil is a refined cooking oil that goes through considerable processing like heating, bleaching, and chemical treatments. Don’t do it, girl. 

    Glide Your Way into Bed!

    A coconut oil lube is a fantastic option to make each sexual experience feel 10x better than the last! 

    A DIY lube may be ideal if you want an organic lubricant with natural oils.
