Lubing It Up

Menopause is the gift that just keeps on giving. As soon as I get used to one symptom, or a new reality, as we should say, another one comes and bops me on the head. Or not exactly the head, as the case may be.

Today’s newest symptom is vaginal dryness. Never been an issue for me before, but lo and behold it has come a knockin’ at my door. Not fun at all!

I have been using the Hooha Serum, which has done wonders for the other aspects of vaginal atrophy, such as thinning walls and incontinence (thank G-d), and I know that it has helped many others with vaginal dryness, but for me, I think it is too warming and I need an additional boost to get my system to slip and slide.

So I went into my apothecary yesterday and I created a gorgeous lube. It’s a cream, not a serum. It contains beeswax, coconut butter, jojoba oil, calendula oil, and a heaping amount of rose oil. Rose oil is basically G-d’s gift to the vagina. I had a moment now where I felt like a heretic using G-d and vagina in the same sentence, but then I remembered that one of G-ds names is Makor, which is also a word for vagina. So it’s ok. No hell on the horizon just yet. Whew!

Sorry, I got sidetracked by my ADHD brain… Back to the lube. It was amazing! I didn’t even realize that I needed lube until I used it. All of a sudden my very own down under felt like it was on a vacation in Australia. A nice and relaxed beach vacation, obviously without any irritating sand. So basically it felt perfect!!!
And bonus, my sex drive picked up it’s head and said Hello! Remember me?
So nice!
I felt young and exuberant again. Ready to climb a mountain and ford streams. Waterfalls watch out! I am woman, hear me roar!!!

And I woke up this morning and the lube was still kicking. How sweet it is!

Anyways, I am happy to share with you that the lube is a win.
Three cheers for keeping our vaginas young and healthy, Naturally!
