Your shopping trips these days may include reading labels and ingredients because we've learned to be mindful of the food, drinks, or products we put in and on our bodies.

So why would lube be any different?

Here's everything you need to know about using coconut oil as a personal lubricant for sex.


Here are the facts about scented lubes:

  • Glycerine, a popular ingredient in water-based lubes, increases your risk of yeast infections.
  • Harsh chemicals, found in many over-the-counter products, are always toxic to our skin -- so of course they would disrupt one of our body's most sensitive areas!
  • Artificial fragrances increase the vagina's natural pH which leads to inflammation and irritation.


Switch to a natural lubricant that is chemical-free, 100% Organic and comes from a trusted source.


What is your safe recommendation for lube?

StephanieCoconut oil is my #1 recommendation. I've been recommending it for my entire practice, over 12 years.

Is coconut oil safe?

Stephanie: Overwhelmingly yes! Most over-the-counter lubricants contain harsh chemicals and puts you at risk of infection. While coconut oil is a natural hydrating and effective form of lube, to aid the practice of safe sex. IMPORTANT: Be sure to use a high-quality coconut oil, that is unrefined and Organic.

What are the benefits of coconut oil as a lube?

There are a few benefits to using coconut oil as a lube.

  • It has a mild scent and taste
  • It's long lasting and will minimize re-application
  • Since coconut oil is a natural moisturizer it can help with vaginal dryness.
  • It's discreet!

Is there a time when you should not use coconut oil as a lube?

There are two reasons not to use coconut oil as lube.

  • If you're allergic to coconuts be sure to test it on your skin before using it.
  • Avoid coconut oil when using latex condoms, because oil breaks down latex.

We recommend Dignity Coconuts 100% Raw & Organic 4oz. jar of for the bedroom, because it's 100% Raw, USDA Organic, chemical-free, Non-GMO, and is the perfect size to keep tucked away in a bedside table drawer!
