Water-based lubricant glides on with ease and doesn't leave a sticky residue. It's useful for intimate situations when you can't form your own moisture. Making your own water-based lubricant at home is easy to accomplish with a limited amount of time and materials. This gives you more time to enjoy yourself while spending less than you would on expensive commercial lubricants.

Add the aloe vera gel to the plastic bottle.

Add the coconut oil and polysorbate 20 to the bottle. Polysorbate 20 emulsifies oil and water.

Add the silk protein extract. This creates a silky glide that resists drying.

Secure the bottle and shake it vigorously. The materials will blend to create a thin, water-feeling gel. The gel doesn't dry easily and allows for slick lubrication.

Things you need

  • 113gr. aloe vera gel
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
