Jojoba

A shrub grown in desert climates. The oil of the jojoba plant has a nutty aroma and has long-lasting lubricant qualities. Sex lubricant manufacturers often refine the substance to remove the aroma.

It is also a fungicide, and it is sometimes added in small amounts to personal lubricants to prevent fungal growth. Pure jojoba oil should not be used with latex condoms. Like other vegetable oils, jojoba oil can break down latex and silicone.

Lemongrass

A genus of grass characterized by its fragrant smell. In some cultures, lemongrass (also known as Cymbopogon) is said to have an aphrodisiac quality. It is also used as a preservative, a medicinal herb, and as a natural pesticide.

Personal lubricant manufacturers primarily use lemongrass for its purported libido-enhancing effects and for its pleasant fragrance. While it is generally safe, it can cause reactions in people with grass allergies. Some evidence suggests that lemongrass can stimulate menstruation, and because of this, pregnant women should not use products with this ingredient.
