There are different types of intimate lubricants. Today we are going to talk about one of the most popular and exciting: the lubricant with a warming effect. To prepare this homemade liquid lubricant you'll need organic coconut oil and peppermint essential oil.


Before starting, look for a plastic bottle or glass (a half-litre one will suffice) and clean it properly. If necessary, sterilize it. In this is where you will make the lubricant. You will need:

  • 200ml organic coconut oil
  • 4 drops peppermint essential oil

In the case of liquid lubricant, the method is very simple: You just have to mix the ingredients. You can do so directly in the jar in which you will store your lubricant, which also can be used for erotic massages.

If you prefer, you also have the option of preparing a creamy lubricant. This recipe requires:

  • 100g cocoa butter
  • 100 ml coconut oil
  • 4 drops peppermint essential oil

These ingredients are perfect for making a lubricant, as they have antibacterial components and also moisturize, nourish and soften the skin while helping to retain heat thanks to the power of peppermint. In addition, they have rich and aphrodisiac aromas, which will help to stimulate us faster.


In order to make homemade creamy lubricant, we recommend that you make the mixture before placing it in the storage jar.

First, melt the butter in a container - the ideal way is to use a bain-marie. Once it has melted, add the oils. If you want the heat effect to be more intense you should add more peppermint. If you want a lubricant without this effect, you can replace the peppermint essential oil with other essential oils such as jasmine, rose or lavender. Which do you prefer?
