Because you don’t want your most intimate moments to be hot and steamy, yet filled with a whole heap of unnecessary chemicals do you? While you might be well-versed in avoiding chemicals in your groceries and personal care products like shampoo and conditioner, you might not yet have turned your attention to where a heap of nasties can be hiding: on your nightstand.
Remember that when it comes to sex and the products you use, we’re talking about the absolute most intimate part of your anatomy—which in our book, means you should be avoiding harmful chemicals at all costs. Here are the 5 best natural lubricants that will keep things spicy and a whole lot healthier in the bedroom.
