Your First Time Using Awaken Arousal Oil With CBD


Have you ordered Awaken for the first time? Or are you just curious? Here’s everything you need to know about our best-selling Arousal Oil with CBD. 

When your order arrives, you'll probably be excited to enjoy it ASAP –  but please take a moment to read the information below.

Awaken 101

Awaken is an all-natural arousal oil designed to enhance sexual pleasure, working with your body to increase blood flow & promote relaxation for a potent “therapeutic aphrodisiac” effect. The secret? Awaken’s synergistic blend of eight all-natural aphrodisiacs including CBD, Kava, ginger, vanilla and cacao.

For some, Awaken may increase arousal, promote lubrication, and heighten sensation, making orgasms fuller, more intense, or easier to access.

For others, Awaken may help reduce physical tension and discomfort, creating the relaxation necessary for sensual experience. Many people also report experiencing relief from vaginal dryness and other experiences associated with menopause and hormonal changes.

Awaken is safe (and fun!) to use during oral sex.

Why CBD?

CBD is known for its anti-inflammatory, analgesic, mood-enhancing and relaxing properties. In Awaken, it works in concert with complementary natural botanicals for a synergistic experience. 

Lube vs. Arousal Oil

Awaken is not a lube — although some have called it a "pre-lube" — it's a topical arousal oil, designed to increase blood flow to the genitals for enhanced sensation & pleasure while soothing any discomfort.

You may want to supplement Awaken with an additional lubricant, like our Intimacy Lubricant with CBD. If you do, make sure to apply Awaken first, so the natural botanicals have time to work their magic. This is a great time for leisurely foreplay.

How To Use Awaken

Massage 1 or more dropperfuls directly onto the clitoris and inner and outer labia and inside the vagina to start activating your body’s arousal response. 

Warming and sensation enhancement begin right away, but full effects can take up to 15 minutes.

Condoms? Use Non-Latex with Awaken.

Because Awaken is oil-based and can degrade latex and poly-isoprene, we recommend choosing oil-safe barriers like polyurethane or nitrile condoms for protection from STIs and pregnancy (or lambskin for prevention of pregnancy but not STIs).

Several major condom brands offer polyurethane condoms. Just be sure they're "poly-urethane" NOT "poly-isoprene."

For convenience, we're providing the following links:

Toys & Vibrators

Awaken is happily compatible with silicone, glass, stainless steel and other non-latex/non-plastic toys.

Read our blog on the subject for more information. 

Allergies or Other Sensitivities? Go Slow.

While Awaken does not contain any synthetic compounds, petrochemicals, parabens, fragrances or additives, it does contain potent all-natural botanical extracts and oils.

Make sure you or your partner aren't allergic to any of the ingredients. (If you're unsure, you can do a patch test on the inside of your elbow.)

Other Health Concerns

People with active yeast infections or other irritating skin conditions of the genitals, including razor burn, should refrain from using Awaken until the condition is resolved.

If you are aware of any existing conditions, including STI’s, or if you're pregnant, breastfeeding or trying to conceive, please consult with your healthcare practitioners before using. If you experience any discomfort while using Awaken, please discontinue use.

  • Mimi: Awaken is oil-based and can’t be used with latex. We include this warning on the product page, the bottle, the box, and the instructional insert. Thanks for reminding us to include it here!

  • Multiple orgasms. Spray it on, sit back and relax for 15-20 minutes. Do your thing. The orgasms will come! More than once! Partner will enjoy as well, no matter how you decide to share it! ;)
    Want triple pleasure? Couple of drops of tonic under your tongue, and a suppository inserted where the moon shines and HELLOO! A nice long inhale of Flow is an EXTRA added bonus. Make it a slow draw, though, because it is potent and DELICIOUS!!

  • I have endometriosis and used the sample for pain free sex , this helped relax my muscles I was so surprised ! I have a little pain after but not during !!!

    Ixtla on
  • I don’t experience dryness or pain during sex but my hubby bought it for me to enhance my orgasm as it states it would. We have use it at least a dozen times and in every instance, I feel more pleasurable during foreplay and during my orgasm, especially during the second or third time. I would highly recommend it to any gal that wants to bring her orgasm to the next level.
