Natural Cures for Female Dryness

Vaginal dryness is a common problem women experience. Dryness most frequently occurs due to reduced hormone estrogen levels. While any woman can experience a decrease in hormones for various reasons, this often happens when women are in menopause.

Female dryness can feel embarrassing and results in extreme discomfort that’s impossible to ignore. But, if you’re not comfortable talking with someone about what can help, there are home remedies for dryness, such as using a yoni oil recipe that can deliver relief and prevent conversations you may feel uncomfortable having.
Read on for three natural cures you can try.

The first and most important way to maintain not just vaginal health but overall health is to drink plenty of water. Drinking water keeps your body, specifically your tissues, hydrated. When you aren’t getting enough water, your body is dehydrated, and you will notice dryness in your vaginal area. Another key benefit is that water helps you eliminate waste more effectively, which could irritate your vaginal area.

Cranberry juice is another beneficial drink that has excellent results in balancing vaginal pH and reducing vaginal irritation. You’ve heard that drinking cranberry juice can help relieve itch from yeast infections and UTIs, but it’s great for relieving any irritation you’re experiencing, including dryness. Regularly consuming this juice keeps you in balance. When shopping, opt for a juice that’s not loaded with sugar. You want to get the full benefits of vitamins E and C in this drink, and too much sugar can adversely affect you.


There are tons of delicious foods that you can include in your diet to help balance your vaginal health to relieve and prevent dryness. Plus, an outstanding balance of foods that help, so you’re not confined to only eating one type of food.

Foods with vitamins A, B, and E can help promote vaginal health and prevent female dryness. Leafy green vegetables – like kale and spinach – and sweet potatoes are full of vitamin A, which normalizes estrogen levels, strengthens the vaginal muscles, and protects the uterine walls. Vitamin B-6 in avocados has been shown to improve vaginal lubrication.

In addition to fruits and vegetables, adding foods high in Omega-3s, also known as fatty acids, can aid in producing vaginal lubrication. Fish (like salmon and tuna) and seeds (like sesame and sunflower) are great ways to increase your intake of Omega-3s.

Yogurt is another excellent source of nutrition that provides benefits for vaginal health. The probiotics in yogurt can help maintain your vaginal pH and prevent infections that often lead to increased vaginal irritation and pain.

Sexual Activity

When you’re experiencing vaginal pain, sex might be the last thing on your mind. But, when you practice consistent, safe sex, you can help improve your vaginal health. Whether you go solo or engage in sex with a partner, both sexual stimulations can relieve vaginal dryness by increasing blood flow and vaginal secretions.

The best way to reap the benefits of vaginal lubrication is to give your body a chance to produce natural lubricants. Before sex or self-pleasure, engage in foreplay to prepare your body for penetration. Take it slow. This gives your body more time to produce natural lubrication, which not only makes penetration more comfortable but increases the benefits of improved vaginal health.

Exercise Your Pelvic Floor

Over time, vaginal muscles weaken due to lower estrogen levels. You can help increase blood flow in your vagina by practicing pelvic floor exercises like Kegels. The exercise helps strengthen weaker muscles while relaxing tight muscles.

Unlike your regular exercise routine, you don’t have to spend a ton of time practicing and you can do it wherever you are. Before the exercise, empty your bladder. Then, tighten your pelvic muscles and hold for up to 5 seconds. Relax the muscles for the same time frame, and then repeat about 10 times. The exercise takes about 15 minutes and it’s recommended you do it three times per day to reap the full benefits.


Female dryness can be incredibly irritating. Now that you have these home remedies, you can start feeling the relief from the vaginal dryness you’re desperately looking for. Give each of these a try and enjoy the relief once and for all.
