Wholistic Sex: A Quick Guide
Updated: Mar 6, 2019
Wholistic refers to a natural approach to whole body care, taking into consideration the entire body and person, and encompassing the mind, body and spirit. As devotees of the earth, we feel tremendously compelled to nurture a sexual journey that not only engages our power, enhances our body positivity, promotes authentic self love, and ignites our openness, but also helps us root ourselves in the grounding energy of nature.
Good sex is relative, but truly natural, wholistic sex can be easily approached through the use of plant allies and organic tools, creating a vibrant pathway to kindling passion and desire in a way that nurtures body, spirit and earth connection in equal measure.
Whether exploring your sexuality as an individual, or with a partner, there are so many enchanting ways to amplify your experience through all-natural, organic accoutrements, such as herbs, organic lubricants, natural toys, and more!
Here are four simple ways to embrace nature, while cultivating passion and pleasure:
Rose Quartz Pleasure Wand - A beautiful option in lieu of a traditional synthetic pleasure tool. A smooth and comfortable gratification wand, crafted using a nourishing crystal which enhances our heart connection, brings forth unconditional self-love, peace, restorative energy, and sexual harmony. Here is one that we love!
Coconut Oil Lube - This oil makes a wonderful, natural, organic lubricant, that is entirely free of ingredients that can irritate delicate intimate areas, such as alcohols, glycerin, petroleum, and harsh preservatives which are found in many drugstore lubricants. We recommend trying an all-organic, food safe, fractionated coconut oil which can often be found at health food and specialty shops!
(A little note that Coconut Oil should not be used with Latex products).
Organic Massage Oil - A nourishing massage is a beautiful ritual to begin your sexual experience. Oils such as Organic Sunflower, Jojoba, Almond Oil, and Apricot Oil are great choices. You can add a few drops of essential oil to set the mood. Wild Rose for the heart, Ylang Ylang to enhance desire, Cinnamon for a gentle warming sensation, and to increase blood flow, peppermint for a mild tingling sensation. Just be sure to blend thoroughly into your oil of choice before applying to the skin.
