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.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • 113gr. aloe vera gel
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp silk protein extract
  • 1 tbsp polysorbate 20
  • 236ml. bottle

  1. 1

    Add the aloe vera gel to the plastic bottle.

  2. 2

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

  3. 3

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

  4. 4

    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.
