Hi ladies. The concept of using Olive Oil and Coconut Oil as a vaginal lubricant is excellent. In prior posts, forum members have written the following concerning this:
“I began using olive oil as lubricant– I thought it was incredibly strange when I started and was resistant. It seemed to weird to use something that was food! But my boyfriend gently pointed out that olive oil has significantly less ingredients than Slippery Stuff (which I had been using) and that it was maybe more natural in some ways.”
“Just reporting back post-procedure to say that I switched from the surgilube to sliquid organics natural on day 6 post procedure for dilating (am 9 days PP today) and finding it very comfortable. I also feel like I can take the dilator out and put my underwear on just before heading out for work in the morning with a lot less residual mess as I walk. I’m using olive oil as a base under the sliquid for overnight dilating which is very comfortable, but runny. Definitely use a pantiliner or wear something old you don’t care about to avoid oil stains if you choose this. I will continue for now, but may switch to something solid at room temperature like coconut oil or cocoa butter later on.”
“I personally use coconut oil and love it! This article convinced me to try it: http://www.hybridrastamama.com/2013/02/coconut-oil-for-intimate-uses.html”
“I’m having success with the Pure Extra Virgin Coconut Oil as a lube!!”
These are all very informative to read. Ladies, what have been your experiences with using Olive Oil or Coconut Oil? Would you recommend it to others as a lubricant? Why or why not?
