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.
