Did you know that many lubricants contain chemicals that can make those with allergies or chemical sensitivities experience burning or irritation when they use them? Did you know that menopause increases the percentage of people with adult onset allergies, which can increase chemical sensitivities? If you’re experiencing any of those things or better yet, just because you care about you, look for lubricants without potentially harmful chemicals like Glycerine and Parabens (they can make sensitivities even more acute). Find a lubricant without them, like Aloe Cadabra, and enjoy knowing you’re using a product that’s As Natural As Nature. Not only will it help lubricate, but it will also help moisturize, and enhance your pleasure!
For example, we know that a person who stays out in extremely hot and humid weather, maybe hanging out at the beach, needs to drink plenty of fluids or they can become dehydrated or experience heat stroke. And if you’ve ever been to a beach party, you know not all liquids are created equal.
For example, although an ice cold beer may feel and taste refreshing, it’s not. In fact, it’s working against your body chemistry, causing you to dehydrate more quickly. It’s important that you’re replenishing yourself (yes, you’re made of 50 to 70% water…so the sun takes that right out of you through your sweat) with water.
The body responds in a similar manner based on the type of lubricant you choose. How does that work? Well, you already know about your pH balance and how certain ingredients can impact that. But the other is osmolality, which pertains to the moisture you naturally create.
Do you remember your childhood chemistry experiments in class? Remember the one where they took a glass of water and added a tablespoon of salt and stirred until the salt dissolved? You couldn’t remove the salt. In fact, it didn’t matter how small an amount you used, the entire cup became undrinkable because every ounce of water was salty.
Well, lubricants can do the same thing to your natural vaginal fluids. Technically speaking, osmolality measures the concentration of all the chemicals in your blood, which means the body has a set range, but external influences can put them out of whack. The higher the osmolality rating of the lubricant, the more it messes with your body chemistry, spreading throughout your natural lubrication to causing you to dry out unnaturally (and faster), much like alcohol can dehydrate you on a hot summer day!
What does that mean to you? Think about it. What happens to your lips when they get dry? The skin becomes thinner. Weaker. It may chap to the point that it cracks or tears or breaks. Your vaginal area can do the same! And think of how much damage small abrasions can create in such a delicate area? How much more susceptible you can become to all sorts of things….
So, when considering which lubricant to use, remember that although something may feel refreshing at first, it may be causing more harm than good. Remember the deeper impacts your choices may have, and choose wisely. Ingredients DO make a difference. That’s why we feel it’s so important to be all natural and made with 95% organic aloe.

It’s Your Favorite Time of Year…Or It Could Be
‘Tis the season of good food and cheer; lights and libation; presents and parties; and memories and menorahs. But it’s also a time of long lines; endless crowds; annoying shoppers; drivers on steroids; and guests who don’t know when to leave! It can be a stressful time but it doesn’t have to be. Relax and enjoy this season of giving by handling holiday stress and spicing up your sex life at the same time.
Feel The Holiday Blues; Then Chase Them Away
Memories of years gone by are natural thoughts during this season of reflection. It’s normal to feel sadness and grief, especially if you can’t be with loved ones. A good cry can sometimes make a big difference. Catch up with a friend you’ve lost touch with or approach that handsome stranger. Who knows, holiday sparks may fly.
Rock Something Sexy
Holiday parties give you a great excuse to buy a new outfit. Make it festive and a little more revealing than your normal conservative threads. When you look good, you feel good so try a new hairstyle or take in a spa visit to put a smile on your face and boost your holiday spirit. Don’t be surprised if you get a few compliments too.
Suggested and Suggestive Reading
It’s official. Women are aroused by erotic material such as the best-selling 50 Shades of Grey. Researchers have found that erotic literature can stimulate the imagination. That stimulus can arouse sexual desire and feel-good vibes.
According to a paper published by the Society for the Scientific Society on Sexuality, reading erotic literature, now dubbed “bibliotherapy,” helps women suffering from low sexual desire achieve a mental state conducive to sex—specifically the anticipation of a positive sexual encounter. So pick up a “bad” book to feel better and possibly, lead to happy endings.
It’s Already Too Late To Shop Early
Shopping may be the most stressful activity of the season. Stop beating yourself up because you can’t say “Yes” when someone asks “All ready for Christmas?” Instead of a single gift, consider a sensual stocking and stuff it with Aloe Cadabra® personal lubricant, sexy lingerie and other bedroom delights.
You may be so stressed that sex is the last thing on your mind. Move it up to first place. In addition to boosting immunity, sex fights stress and raises self-esteem. Orgasms increase endorphins (natural painkillers and mood elevators) and raise oxytocin levels, increasing romantic attachments. There are at least a dozen ways sex boosts good feelings and keeps you healthy. To make the most of your experience, keep your Aloe Cadabra® lubricant nearby for those magic moments. The Peppermint flavor is the perfect complement to the season.
Accept Changes In Tradition
Whatever the family rituals were last year or for decades before, it may not be the same this year. Situations change. Keep an open mind to new ideas. If you’re the one who usually plays host and adult children can’t make it this year, use Skype or Facetime to celebrate together. If you’re a couple celebrating alone, take advantage of the empty nest. Slip into something comfortable, light the candles, and make it a season to remember.
The holidays only come once a year, and it’s a time associated with good fun and loving relationships, so keep calm and carry on. Make this your merriest time of year. You can do this!

Vaginal dryness is a common byproduct of peri menopause and menopause. It is common and yet can also be acute. Vaginal dryness is also associated with life’s events such as childbirth, hormone treatments, medications, and stress! Harsh soaps and other chemicals can take away from natural moisture. Stress certainly plays a large part in keeping our system naturally lubricated. The delicate vaginal tissues become less plyable, and cracks may develop that can invite in infection and discomfort. An unhealthy lifestyle, pushing oneself to the max will can have manifestations in vaginal dryness. These can include lack of sleep, and rest, too much caffeine, lack of exercise and even negative thoughts and emotions. There is a direct connection between the relationship of emotions, positive and negative, and the sexual response in body, mind and spirit.
However with this amazing product, help is on the way: Aloe Cadabra can help to heal naturally. Know what is going into your body!
After all, look at the healing effects of Aloe Vera from the ancient times in Egypt, and also now. With these life events, the delicate vaginal tissue may become inflamed, irritated, with small cracks that can lead to infection and more dryness. Aloe Cadabra helps relieves the symptoms and the discomfort. It is natural feeling and moisturizing gently and naturally. The soothing, “awakening” of the tissues enhances sexual pleasure. It is 95% certified organic aloe vera, ensuring a soothing, pleasurable, intimate moisturizing experience!
While Aloe Cadabra is a fantastic lubricant and moisturizer, according to our customers, they’re not limiting themselves. Without any prompting from us, many of you have been generous enough to share other uses you’ve discovered for Aloe Cadabra.
Probably the least surprising due to the aloe base of our product was from one young women who used it to alleviate her sunburn. A couple who recently had a baby told us they used it on diaper rash. Yet another person described how they used it on a really bad “road burn,” they’d gotten from biking. Within a week, the skin was healed.
But Aloe Cadabra isn’t simply being limited to people. One user told us about her dog being bitten in the face by an insect. After giving her pet some Benadryl, she used Aloe Cadabra directly on the bite to soothe away the sting. She’d read online that aloe helped alleviate itching, so she gave it a shot. According to her, it worked swimmingly.
We’ve heard from many that Aloe Cadabra has become their go to hand lotion. It makes sense. While Aloe Cadabra may be called a personal lubricant and its great for that purpose, the ingredients we use make it great for a variety of things. Aloe Vera is widely considered anti microbial and anti fungal. So, it can be soothing on sensitive skin.
Aloe Vera has also been used in medical centers on burns for a long time. And since we’re made with 95% aloe vera, it’s fantastic for that purpose as well. Aloe Vera has also widely been considered to have nourishing, healing attributes for the lips since the time of Cleopatra, and there are folks who’ve shared that they use it in just this way!
As interesting as all these stories were, the most surprising one came from a gentleman who told us he used it to get his wetsuit on and off. Like any curious company, we did a marketing study and found that scuba divers were some of the biggest purchasers of Aloe Cadabra! Why? Well, similar to a condom, a wet suit is made from rubber and can be difficult to get on and remove without the help of a lubricant.
So, no matter what you’re doing or what you’re trying to lubricate or moisturize, keep Aloe Cadabra in mind. When you start with 95% organic aloe vera, despite what the bottle may say or the connotation may be, it might just be the solution you’re looking for. Share with us how you’re using Aloe Cadabra! We’re on Twitter and Facebook, and enjoy hearing from our fans!
NOTE: please check with your doctor is you have a serious medical condition and are considering using Aloe Cadabra in a way other than its “intended purpose.”
