Balm is meant to be used externally on the vulva on a daily basis—much like you would a body lotion. It's perfect for soothing itching or painful labia and vulva, but can also help set the mood! It's a way to maintain daily moisture of the vulva, and is absorbed into the skin to help maintain healthy tissue.
Lube is better suited for one-time uses to help insert something into the vagina. Although there are many types of lube, we suggest a water-based, toxin-free, FDA-approved product that mimics natural vaginal pH. This type is safe with pelvic wands, vaginal dilators, rectal dilators, or kegel weights , and in those more intimate times.
While the vagina is self-lubricating, everyone is different. Pregnancy, menopause, certain medications, and even your menstrual cycle can affect your body's ability to produce lubricant naturally.
Although over 65% of women say they've used lube, many feel pressure not to rely on it. Even though these products alleviate discomfort and boost intimacy, women report feeling embarrassed to use or ask for it.
It's time to shed the shame surrounding lubricants! Dryness does not mean you're disinterested in your partner.
