So, you eat organic and look at labels for all your skincare products because you care about what goes into and onto your body. Well, theres one more product to add to that list, and its an intimate one. Today we’re getting personal and serving up a list of the best natural lubes for females, because if you don’t want nasty chemicals on your body or fruit, you definitely don’t want them *ahem* “down there“. You’d be surprised at how many nasty chemicals are in KY Jelly, seriously go take a look, you’ll be amazed and thankful you read this!
There is a lot to consider when deciding what the best lube for sensitive skin is or what is safe for your vagina, because there is a natural ph balance to consider, condom safety since oil based lubes can degrade latex, and the risk of vaginal infections. So, here’s a list of the best lubricants with natural ingredients with the BEST REVIEWS from the people of amazon because lots of people are using these!
Should You Use a Natural Lube?
There are a few reasons why natural lubes are better than the standard drugstore ones that are full of harmful ingredients. First, if you suffer from chronic yeast infections then it will be best for you to avoid lubes that contain glycerin because there is evidence to suggest they can trigger yeast infections. (PS: click here to learn how to treat chronic yeast infections naturally).
We also know that parabens are hormone disruptors, so we should avoid them in all the skin care products we use, even if we aren’t putting them on our most sensitive areas. As a result, its definitely a good idea to ensure your lube does not contain parabens. If you have sensitive skin or often have allergic reactions, then using natural lubricants will be beneficial for you as they are less likely to give you a reaction.
Best Natural Lubes You Can Buy
Sliquid Organics Natural is the base formula for the entire Sliquid Organics line of lubes and is the purest botanically infused lubricant available. Reviewers love it, and several mention that it does not give them yeast infections like several other brands do. Sliquid Organics Natural is entirely glycerin and paraben free and contains no sugar derivatives which means it will not contribute to yeast infections.
Sliquid Organics Natural lube is water based and water soluble making it extremely easy to clean up, and condom friendly. It will not become sticky or tacky because Sliquid Organics Natural is designed to emulate your body’s own natural lubrication, this was echoed by MANY reviewers as well.
Powerhouse ingredients include aloe vera and alfalfa which are natural skin soothers. Vitamin E is well known for it’s healing properties and Green Tea and Hibiscus are well documented for their invigorating and skin elasticity properties.

Aloe Cadabra 4.5/5
✔️ Toy Friendly & Condom Safe
✔️ 100% Vegan Ingredients
This favourite natural lube is made from 95% Food Grade Organic Aloe Vera.
Since it is a water based lube it is stain-free and PH balanced for a women’s body. This lubricant is made from 100% vegan ingredients, which is always a plus. While silicone based lubricants can degrade both silicone and jelly rubber toys, Aloe Cadabra lube is 100% toy friendly. It is also Doctor recommended to eliminate painful intercourse & menopause dryness.
No: Parabens, Petroleum, Silicone, Phenoxyethanol, Glycerin, Glucose, Propylene glycol, or Chlorhexidine! This natural lube also protects against infection and acts as an anti-inflammatory that soothes the skin.
Reviewers say that it has an amazing texture, and isn’t sticky at all, plus since it is oil free it is condom safe!
Coconut Oil As Lube 4.5/5
✔️100% Natural & Organic
✔️ Edible Lube
Yes, you can use coconut oil as a lube! Not only that, but it is my favourite choice, as long as you are not dependent on condoms for birth control, because any oil can degrade latex. If you use condoms choose one of the non oil based lubricants. Coconut oil has natural anti-fungal & anti-bacteria properties, so if you are susceptible to yeast infections or vaginosis, this is a great choice for you. Coconut oil is a great lube because it is 100% edible, so makes a great choice for oral sex. Another perk of using coconut oil as a lube is it won’t stain the sheets.
I’ve linked through to a fractionated option which means that it is already liquid and therefore easier to use. If you go for traditional coconut oil it will harden in the container if the room is below 24 degrees celsius. It can still be used, but needs to be softened by rubbing between your hands first. You can get the big Costco tub organic coconut oil and it makes you feel optimistic. Like “ look at all the sex we are prepared for.” Coconut oil as lube is a great choice.
Aloe Vera as Lube
✔️ Condom Safe
Aloe vera is the main ingredient in many natural lubes, so if you want to you can just use straight up Aloe Vera if you have any in your house. Aloe Vera Plant is one of the best and most versatile and widely used skincare products on the market. When used externally it has a wide range of benefits, such as moisturizing and rejuvenating the skin, healing wounds, burns and abrasions, itch prevention, softens the skin, increases elasticity, reduces inflammation and helps supply oxygen to the skin cells.
This is a great excuse to get an Aloe Vera plant if you’ve been thinking about it! They are actually super easy to take care of, and I sure don’t mind having a constant supply of 100% natural and safe lube handy! If you want to get creative and do a DIY lube you can also add a few drops of oil to the aloe vera for more slip & slide fun or to use it for massaging. Some great options include almond oil & olive oil.

What Natural Lubes to Avoid
- Anything with sugar can contribute to a yeast infection
- Cornstarch + water is widely reported to be a cheap DIY lube option, but it can also contribute to yeast infections, so I would avoid it.
