Hey ladies, we all know that we make our own lube on a daily basis but sometimes you need/want more than what your body is producing. That's where making your own DIY lube comes in. Many commercial lubes use crazy, non-FDA regulated or approved, chemicals, not unlike some of the chemicals used in anti-freeze and brake fluid. Stay away from commercial lubes that contain Propylene glycol, parabens, and synthetic fragrances!
I'll be the first to admit that I often refer to my beautiful cunt as a well-oiled machine, but that doesn't mean I'm going to be putting anti-freeze or brake fluid all up in there.
Many fabulous, female-owned and oriented sex product stores like Toys in Babeland are now starting to offer new eco-friendly personal lubricants like Babeland Naturals Organic Lube and Good Clean Love.
But for the DIY-on-the-go gal such as myself, it's more fun and economical to make your own lube.
Here's what you need to do to be slipping and sliding in no time:
1 pot for boiling
2 cups of water
2.5 Tbsp of flax seeds (you can get this at most grocery stores or health foods stores)
20 minutes of your lovely time
a stove or hot plate for boiling
1 - Pour the 2 cups of water into the pot and bring to a boil on your stovetop
2 - Add the 2.5 tbsp of flax seeds to the boiling water and simmer the seeds for about 20 minutes or until the water is reduced by half
3 - Strain out the solid flax seeds immediately after 20 minutes
4 - Let your lube cool so it's safe to use and enjoy!
You can store the lube in a reusable container in your fridge for up to 2 weeks. Un-refridgerated lube should only be used for up to two days after making it.
Don't forget to give your lube a special, sexy name and if you're feeling extra crafty and foxy, a sexy label! I call mine "Doris Miller's Sexy Anti-Freeze for the Well-Oiled Machine"
For those more visual learners, Grist.org's eco-diva Umbra Fisk has a new video that shows you how it's done:
