Always store your formulation in the fridge. This primrose oil is cold-pressed and unrefined and should be refrigerated. When ready to use, form the oil into a small ball as shown on the left.

In my search for a healthy household, I have gone out of my way to learn more about homemade alternatives to commercial and pharmaceutical products. The major reason why I wanted to produce homemade products were issues around product safety and purity. I just want to know what was truly in a product. I have found homemade products are cheaper than commercial products even though my homemade products are made with superior quality ingredients. Finally, I found I reduced my waste stream dramatically because I use re-useable containers.

Some younger and older women have problems with lubrication. A simple solution to this common problem is using a quality organic coconut oil as a sexual lubricant. Using coconut oil as a sexual lubricant avoids additives commonly found in commercial sex lubes. Using coconut oil is very cost effective since most people have the product in their kitchen. Coconut oil has the added benefit of tasting good unlike many sex lubes.

As women get a bit older, lack of lubrication can become more of an ongoing issue. As women approach perimenopause and menopause, a dry vagina can become very troublesome. Combined with a nourishing traditional diet loaded with healthy animal fats, this recipe can help the older women have a happy vagina. This recipe was inspired from a product called Vaginal Renewal Complex. If you do not have the time or the inclination to make Happy Vagina Pearls, you can contact Olga Cohen at Inner Intimates. Olga is very passionate and helpful about this issue.

Happy Vagina Pearls
1/2c organic shea butter
1/4c organic primrose oil
1/4c organic shea nut oil (optional)
2T organic vitamin E oil (optional)

Bring a pot of water to a boil. Put the shea butter in a 2c Pyrex measuring cup. Use 2/3c shea butter if you decide not to include the shea nut oil. Place the Pyrex cup into the water and bring to a simmer. Do not over heat the shea butter. Just heat enough to melt. Remove from heat and let the shea butter cool to at least body temperature. Add the other oils and stir very well. Pour the formulation into a glass jar and store in the fridge.

Here is the shea butter being carefully melted in the Pyrex glass measuring cup. Cool the shea butter to at least body temperature before adding the remaining oils.

When ready to use, spoon out 1/2tsp of formulation and work the oil into a small ball. Once a day, insert a small ball into your upper vaginal canal, just like a tampon. If needed, insert a small ball just before sex. If you have any extra oils on your hands use the oil to moisturize any dry skin. You can use this formulation as a general skin cream. Each cup of formulation will make 96, 1/2tsp small balls. Each small ball with have 78iu of vitamin E.

I prefer to use organic ingredients when I make homemade cosmetics and medicines. I get many of my herbs and supplies from www.mountainroseherbs.com.

“Shea Butter is naturally rich in Vitamins A, E, and F, as well as a number of other vitamins and minerals. Vitamins A and E help to soothe, hydrate, and balance the skin. They also provide skin collagen which assists with wrinkles and other signs of aging. Vitamin F contains essential fatty acids, and helps protect and revitalize damaged skin and hair. Shea Butter is an intense moisturizer for dry skin… Evening Primrose Seed Oil has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant effects and may also act as a blood thinner and blood vessel dilator.”

  1. Brilliant! I use coconut oil — works great, smells great and no mercury!!! When I found out the AstroGlide that was a miracle for me had mercury in it, I thought life was over. LOL. Coconut oil to the rescue, in so many ways. Now I can’t wait to make my own pearls. Thanks!

  2. That comment is not going on Facebook is it? That would be way TMI, even for me. If it goes on facebook, please delete. Thank you!

  3. Hi Sally,

    I know what you mean. I was equally horrified when I learned about ingredients in my personal care products. Now, I will not even buy a product that doesn’t have an ingredients list. This is why I started the Healthy Household series. I really wanted to know what was in my personal care products, household cleaners and medicines. I have found the freedom, and cost savings, that comes from making my own products. I don’t think I will ever go back.

  4. Hi Sally,

    No, the common will not go on Facebook. Actually, I don’t even have a Facebook account. The eatkamloops.org is a local Kamloops, BC, Canada website. Occasionally, I write a post that has worldwide appeal and seems to go everywhere. The recipe for Happy Vagina Pearls and the suggestion for people to use coconut oil as a sex lubricate, seems to be one of those posts. I think many people in the know, have used coconut oil for a long time, but many people just haven’t thought about it. Coconut oil is perfect because it is safe, tastes good and can be absorbed into the body with positive results.

  5. That is a good question. I do not know what shea butter will do to sperm. Shea butter helps heal a dry vaginal canal that bothers some older women. Coconut oil can be used as a lubricant for young and older women. Coconut oil is the better lubricant.

    If someone is trying to conceive a child, I would not use any homemade or commercial lubricants. If someone does not want to conceive a child, use the coconut oil as a lubricant and a condom.

  6. Hi Nicki,

    Yes, you could use it everyday if you needed it for vaginal dryness. If you notices any problems use coconut ever other day.

  7. Is the shea butter safe to be placed inside the vaginal wall? I have dryness on my inner thigh as well and dryness. I noticed when I put oil on the more it itches because it will heat up the skin. Don’t you think so?

  8. Hi Babes,

    No, I use shea butter like a skin cream. I have never had the problems you mentioned. Maybe you have a sensitively to shea butter. If I have any skin problems from a product I would discontinue any use.

  10. Thank you for starting a website like this! I just recently started dating only to find sex is very painful which saddens me tremendously! I’m 57 yrs and I need liberation in order to have sex and love the idea of the pearls! I’m going out tomorrow to get the ingredients to make them. I’d like to try just coconut oil first. It’s something I don’t like to deal with because it kills the spontaneous excitement of sex, but not a choice at this stage of life! Thank you again for the wonderful suggestion! I’d love to hear from other elders about their experience with the pearls?

  11. I made the recipe based on a commercial product listed at the end of the post. Many people seem to like the recipe. It is one of the most popular posts on eatkamloops.org.

  12. A number of people have asked about safety. Everyone is different. If you have an allergy to shea or coconut oil this recipe will not work for you. Try another oil that is solid at room temperature. If you find over time you develop a sensitivity stop using the recipe. Most people find it safe for daily use but listen to YOUR body!

    One thing nice about this recipe is you know everything that goes into it. Unlike commercially prepared lubricants, you really know what goes into your lube.

  13. Why don’t you try another oil that is hard at room temperature and come back with your research? Shea doesn’t agree with everyone.

  14. Hi. I read your comment about coconut oil and lubrication and thought I remembered a camping trip where I ended up with a bladder infection after using coconut oil. But I tried it again after reading your post using organic coconut energetically tested, in other words, really great stuff, and once again it flipped me into a bladder infection again!! Haven’t had one in five years since the other one! I’m going to try the pearls. Any idea why I may have gotten the bladder infection from the coconut oil?

  15. I have no idea. Maybe your healthcare provider will have some insight. Everyone is different. If you have problems with an item, and you have tested it a few times, it is better to avoid the troublesome item. You really don’t need to know “why”. Just avoid the troublesome item.

  16. Hi there and thanks for all this empowering information. Is there a use by date for the pearls, once they’re stored in the fridge? I wonder if adding some black cohosh to this recipe would have an extra benefit of relieving menopausal symptoms? Many, thanks.

  17. I would try adding the herb and report back your results. I would be very interested in your findings.

  18. I found your website while looking for a recipe for vaginal renewal. There’s has vitamin D in it. Wondering what you would suggest if I were to add it. How much would be okay? I have had vaginal dryness and itching externally and was hoping this would help. I think the vitamin D will be helpful to add.

  19. I would NOT recommend adding vitamin D. I would suggest you take vitamin D in a food form or from the sun. Oily fish or cod liver oil is a good source of vitamin D.

  20. Hi! I didn’t read ALL the comments, but let it be known that using said oils with a condom reduces it’s ability to keep one from becoming pregnant (or protecting one against STIs). It causes breakdown of the condom. Be forewarned, my DIY-sexy friends!

  21. Coconut oil will not breakdown condoms. In fact, coconut oil may stop breakage by reduction of friction. As for the Happy Vagina Pearls, they are for older women passed reproductive age.

  22. Heya! I am intrigued by your recipe and plan to try it soon… but I’ve a question about the EPO… Do you think Rosehip Seed Oil would be a good substitute? I have the other ingredients but don’t have any EPO on hand.

    Like you, I’m trying to go more natural as I’m sick of all the junk/chemicals they force down our throats. So I’m wondering if you have a natural intimate cleanser recipe … something alone the lines of Summer’s Eve?

    Thank you!

  23. I have never used Rosehip Seed Oil so I have no experience with the oil. I looked up the oil on the mountainroseherbs.com website for its uses and it sounds like it works well for aging skin. I would try a spot check with the oil in the vaginal area and see if there is any irritation. If not, I would make a small amount of the recipe with the RSO and try it out. Please come back and tell how your experimenting goes!

  24. I have been educating women in my community about birth, family planning, and sex for almost 15 years. From the research I’ve seen, it is my understanding that coconut oil, or any other oil, will break down latex and that there is no oil-based or oil-containing lubricant that is condom-safe, even one like this. If you have some validated data regarding coconut oil being latex condom safe, would you mind giving me a link so I can check it out myself?

    The most recent information I have is from the World Health Organization: http://www.unaids.org/en/media/unaids/contentassets/dataimport/publications/irc-pub01/jc003-malecondom-factsheets_en.pdf.

  25. Coconut oil is a safe lubricate for a women’s body. My focus was on a safe and inexpensive homemade lubrication for making sex comfortable for older women. I do not know if the coconut oil will damage the latex condom itself, nor do I know of any research.

  26. I am in a good marriage with a loving fellow and we are adjusting to “empty nesting” now. It has been quite a shock to both of us as we have a very close family. I am also struggling with the fact that my heart and soul still want intimacy with my guy but my body is letting me down. I long for those days when I would be ready for sex almost always. I’m tired of reaching for the lube or running out of lube that really does not feel good to me anyway. I was saddened by the fact that sex was becoming a chore for me. Then I found this site and really like this idea. I will source out the ingredients and try it. ~ Thank you!

  27. Thank you for this info. I just turned 35. I have found recently that I am no longer getting wet when I attempt to have sex. It is disturbing and makes him think I am not interested. I have no idea why this is happening and I have returned to drinking water and adding as many veggies as possible. I guess I am finally getting old. So I will save your page and try this out.
