About Vaginal Dryness in Women

As women’s sexual hormones naturally decline with age we start to see:

  • A reduction in the elasticity of the vagina and thinning of the skin
  • An increase in vaginal pH and decrease in healthy vaginal flora
  • Diminished natural lubrication
  • Things may start to just “hurt” down there!

Dryness and discomfort often become the “accepted” norm. Researchers have also found that women start to experience many emotional, mood and confidence issues as vaginal dryness symptoms take over.

If a woman has a partner she may find:

  • A sex life that needs life-support (Because it hurts!)
  • A reduced sense of self-confidence as a woman or partner
  • A feeling of disconnectedness or loneliness

Dr. Anna’s Moisturizing Homemade Lubricant

A natural lubricant can help by reducing the irritation and painful intercourse caused by vaginal dryness. Natural solutions such as organic coconut oil, aloe vera gel and essential oils do not contain the additional chemicals that can be seen in some commercial lubricant and vaginal moisturizing solutions. DIY lubricants can be created using many ingredients found in your kitchen cabinets and can offer temporary relief.



  1. Mix in a glass jar.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Keep Bedside and Voila!
  4. Use as much as desired prior too and during intimacy.
  5. Enjoy!


*See Dr. Z’s Favorite Essential Oils for Sex: Boost Libido and Set the Mood Naturally for some great oils to use in your natural lubricant. Oils like patchouli, sandalwood, or rose might be good options.

Warning – Coconut oil as a lubricant may impact the effectiveness of condoms so please be aware if going this route.
