Love On Yourself With These 7 All-Natural DIY Vaginal Washes

Women's Health

I have a girlfriend in her 50s who claims she doesn't recall one time when she's ever looked directly into her vagina.

Not during sex. Not when she had her kids. Never. According to her, she basically washes it and trims it from time to time and that's about it.

Meanwhile, I'm the kind of woman who feels like my va-jay-jay is like a plant; it deserves to be loved on and even talked to on occasion. It's nothing for me to take out a handheld mirror and do my own impromptu inspecting to see how things are going down there. I'll even proudly shout her out when necessary.

Most of my friends know that my vagina and I are buddies. Maybe that's why it's not uncommon for them to hit me up with random questions like, "What should I wash my vagina with?"

OK. The short answer is "absolutely nothing". One of the best things about our vaginas is they are self-cleaning; our bodies provide everything they need to maintain a pH balance of 3.8-4.5, which is why we shouldn't douche; it throws the balance off. But when it comes to our labia — the external folds of our vulva, which is the outer part of our vagina — that is something that we can safely pamper and love on with a few beauty products (preferably all-natural ones).

If you want to give your vagina — and by that, I mean labia — a bit of a treat, here are some all-natural homemade washes that are not only safe to use but can benefit your lady parts in so many ways.

Disclaimer: When it comes to the recipes that require water, room-temperature distilled water is best because it's the kind of water that is contamination-free and helps to detoxify your organs.

Rosewater is great for your labia because it's full of antioxidants, helps to treat infections, and also helps to soothe skin irritation. Lavender oil works well with it because it provides a calming effect while it soothes skin irritation and reduces PMS-related symptoms. Witch hazel is awesome because it contains tannins that help to tighten up superficial cells (it's also great for healing hemorrhoids and postpartum swelling). Rosemary oil increases blood circulation while reducing stress. The more blood that's flowing to your genitalia, the more awesome your orgasms will be!

Recipe:

1 Cup of Distilled Water

1/3 Cup of Rosewater

¼ Cup of Witch Hazel

1 Tablespoon of Rosemary Oil

6 Drops of Lavender Oil

Mix all of these ingredients together in a bottle, shake well and immediately apply (if you wish). This wash should hold for a couple of months, so long as it's kept at room temperature.

Why do I keep having the same experiences?"
