Green consciousness is starting to sneak into the bedroom, too, and with good reason. After all, sex is about as natural as you can get. Why taint it with toxins? Here are ecofriendly options:
1. Share a shower or bath: Showering or taking a bath together saves water, and it's really fun. But don't make it a marathon, or you'll defeat the water savings of a two-for-one soak. Clean and caress each other with with unscented castile soap, or ones scented with 100 percent organic essential oils.
2. Go for natural candlelight: People like to see each other a little bit. Naked bodies tend to look much better in its soft, warm glow. Although, most candles on the market are petroleum-based and scented with fake fragrances that often contain chemicals linked to allergies, asthma, hormone disruption and even cancer. So use natural beeswax candles or ones made with soy and scented with essential oils.
3. Mix your own tasty body paste: Instead of buying packaged, processed body paint, whip up a yummy potion. Try mixing confectionars' sugar and water into a paste and adding a little finely ground lavender, often found in the bulk food section in natural food stores. If lavender's not your thing, mix in a little vanilla for tasty body candy :)
