The Centre for Sexual Pleasure and Health – Awaken Arousal Oil
Awaken is a topical aphrodisiac designed to be used by people with vulvas. It can be applied directly onto the vulva, or onto the hands of you or your partner and massaged into the labia, clitoris, and/or vagina. The effects stay localized to the area they are applied (so even the THC version of Awaken wouldn’t make you feel high), and have shown to help relax muscle tension, enhance blood flow, and decrease pain. This helps to increase arousal, promote natural lubrication, and heighten sensation — often making orgasms fuller, more intense, and/or easier to access. With its effects of reduced muscle tension and decreased pain signalling, we are especially excited about the possibilities of Awaken providing relief for those coping with certain forms of pelvic pain.
