Going Green in the Bedroom

If you’re on a mission to go green throughout your home, don’t forget to take into account the products you’re using in the bedroom. Astroglide Natural is a new all-natural botanical personal lubricant.

This product is water-based, water-soluble, and safe for use with latex condoms.

It contains:

  • Xylitol (plant derived)
  • Aloe Vera
  • Vitamins C & E
  • Pectin (from fruit)
  • Chamomile Flower Extract

Astroglide Natural is free of glycerin, alcohol, fragrance, flavorings, and hormones.

As far as lubricants go, I think this is one of the better products I’ve tried. It doesn’t stain the sheets or leave a sticky residue and it’s very long lasting. I didn’t have any problems with stinging or irritation when I used it, which has been a major issue for me in the past.

It is super slippery though, so be sure to apply sparingly and make sure the bottle is closely properly before tossing it in your nightstand.

I really shouldn’t have to point this out, but Astroglide is not a spermicide or a contraceptive. So, if you’re not planning on adding more kiddos to your family, ask your doctor about a reliable birth control method.

If you can’t find Astroglide Natural in a store near you, I suggest ordering from Drugstore.com. They offer fast and free shipping with an order of $35 or more. You also earn 5% back on purchases with Drugstore.com dollars, which is in addition to any more earned from programs like Ebates or Upromise.

If you want to compare Astroglide Natural to the other products the company offers, visit the Astroglide website.

    I had recently heard about the chemicals in other lubricants and was surprised that they weren’t made with safer materials. Plus I hate the trend now for all of them to be “warming” or “tingling”…. no thanks.
