I dreamed up this recipe on a warm autumn day while sitting in the garden. I was thinking about fellow queer folx who want more access to nature but for whom the city is the safest place. I was thinking of those you who want more depth and sensuality in your sexual experiences but aren't sure where to start. My heart was with fellow traumatized folx who have a deep need for nervous system regulation during intimacy. I was thinking about those of you who want to align with the ethics of your lube. And, of course, I was thinking about those of you who are as enthused as I am about the magic of plants

This lube & ritual experience is for you - is for us!

As a sex educator, I frequently meet folx who feel dissatisfied with their sexual lives. What I often hear is a desire for more sensuality, a need for more value-aligned sex and a need for nervous-system regulated safety. Sexual dissatisfaction can be overwhelming (I've been there!) but it doesn't need to be permanent. This is the starting place from which I started conceptualizing Plants+Pleasure.

I want more sensuality in my sexual experiences.

Sensuality is the awakening of your senses. By tending to each sense you have acces to, you can create deeply transformative sexual experiences that call your whole self into deep connection - with yourself and/or others. Plants+Pleasure offers you an awakening of your sense of touch through lubrication and hydration. It invites your sense of smell through it's earthy scent with overtones of Rose. It's hypnotizing bright green colour tantilizes your sense of sight. And the plants messages ask your sense of listening to expand.

I want to feel confident in the ethics of the products I use.

It's truly difficult to find products with which our values align while living under capitalism. The ingredients in Plants+Pleasure are listed and described so that you can feel confident in the purchase you're making. Each plant and oil has either been garden-grown, harvested ethically or sourced from trusted suppliers. Although it isn't perfect (I do not know, for example, where the glass for the dropper bottles was sourced.), it's my most heart-full effort to create a lubricant that is ethically created. Please feel welcome to contact me with any questions you have about the ethics of this product.

I need to my nervous system to feel safe during sex.

For so many of us, sex and sexuality are closely woven with our trauma and nervous system disregulation. It's so important that we feel safe in our sexual encounters. Sometimes, even when all the circumstances are safe, our nervous systems need extra support. Plants & the natural world are documented allies to the nervous system. Inviting these gentle and caring plant spirits into your sexuality may offer you a new entry point to safety and regulation. The accompanying ritual will guide you through finding inner safety.

  1. Oil-based lube shouldn't be used with latex condoms, polysioprene condoms, latex diaphrams and latex sex toys.

  2. Mugwort and Damiana are not safe for pregnant people - and are not advised for people who are trying to conceive and people who are breastfeeding. Research of this involves internal use of these plants - but to be safe, I recommend you do not use this product if you are in one of these categories. If this applies to you, you're welcome to contact Almond for more information. 

  3. If you have allergies or sensitivities to plants & oils, please contact Almond to discuss the safety of this product for you.

  4. Discontinue use if you experience irritations. Listen to your body.

  1. Use within 12 moon cycles and keep in a cool dark place.

  2. Protect your sheets and surfaces from oil stains by laying down a towel.

  3. Everyone's lubricant needs are different. In my opinion, this lubricant is best suited for genital massage, fingering & toy play. If you're seeking something long-lasting for penetrative sex, I recommend using glycerine or water-based.
