Developed by sex expert, Dr. Carlen, this lube recipe invites you to slow down and enjoy all the sensations, not just the “destination” (wink wink, nudge nudge).
All of the below ingredients can be purchased at your local health food store. As for the vessel, a well-cleaned repurposed container will do. If you don’t have one handy, the dollar store’s got you covered. Wherever you source it, make sure it has a dispensing mechanism so that your lube stays hygienic and easy to distribute.
½ cup Organic MCT coconut oil, infused (we suggest a high-THC strain)
Organic vitamin E oil
5 drops Peppermint essential oil
1 drop black pepper essential oil
Vessel equipped with a dispensing mechanism (eye dropper, pump, etc)
Start with room temp ingredients. Mix your liquid MCT coconut oil, vitamin E oil and drops of essential oils. Whisk thoroughly until combined.
Pour into your vessel
VdP tip: When it comes to peppermint oil, we recommend starting low and going slow. However, if after you’ve tested the lube on a small area (inside of the elbow works!) you decide you’d like a stronger tingling sensation, you can gradually a couple more drops of peppermint oil.
*Disclaimer: Remember to start low and go slow with the cannabis content in your DIY recipes.
