A pole grip that also moisturizes your skin – crazy right!?

I remember the frustration when I first began poling. I was a huge moisturizer. An oil loving, body slathering, slick hydration goddess but when pole came into my life the oil had to go and I was lost on how to stay moisturized and still stick to my pole on training days.

Today I’m going to share with you a recipe I created years ago for a homemade moisturizing pole grip. Now I know this sounds like a total oxymoron but I’ve been using it for years and this recipe not only gives me dewy, hydrated skin but it also actually helps me stick to the pole!

After spending hundreds of dollars on moisturizers and grip aids in my quest for the perfect pole dancer’s blend, my years of research brought me to the conclusion that I could easily (and for much less money) create my own. I’ve tinkered with the ingredient levels over the years discovering that I like my mixture with an additional ingredient in the winter months (both recipes below) for an added moisture bang during the chilly months when my skin tends to be more dry.

This homemade, low cost pole grip moisturizer is easy to make and uses natural ingredients that are body safe and eco-friendly.

Lavender Pole Grip Moisturizer Spray Recipe:

  • SUMMER RECIPE:
    (large batch:)
    1/4 cup vegetable glycerin
    1/2 cup distilled water
    1/2 cup Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel (preservative)
    1/4 teaspoon essential oil (optional) (I use lavender – it smells delightful)
  • (small batch:)
    2 tbsp vegetable glycerin
    1/4 cup distilled water
    1/4 cup Thayers Witch Hazel (preservative)
    8 drops essential oil (optional) (I use lavender – it smells delightful)

Pour all ingredients into a spray/mist bottle, shake prior to use.

WINTER RECIPE:
(The winter recipe is the same as the summer recipe but with the addition of aloe.)

  • (large batch:)
    1/4 cup vegetable glycerin
    2 tbsp aloe vera gel
    1/2 cup distilled water
    1/2 cup Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel (preservative)
    1/4 teaspoon essential oil (optional) (I use lavender – it smells delightful)
  • (small batch:)
    2 tbsp vegetable glycerin
    1 tbsp aloe vera gel
    1/4 cup distilled water
    1/4 cup Thayers Witch Hazel (preservative)
    8 drops essential oil (optional) (I use lavender – it smells delightful)

Pour all ingredients into a spray/mist bottle, shake prior to use.

I like to spray mine on right after I shower. I towel dry, stand in the shower and spray a light layer all over my body. Allow to air dry, wash hands before poling (this mixture is meant for your body – remove it from your hands prior to dancing).

Note:
  • The Thayers witch hazel ingredient can be substituted with vodka if desired.
  • Essential oil is completely optional. Use any scent you desire or leave it out completely.
  • Be sure to use distilled water – do not use tap water!
  • Make small batches that get used in approximately 1 months time. To convert mixture, simply follow a 1 part glycerin to 4 part liquid base for your batch.
  • Use a dark storage container if possible and limit sun exposure to spray/mist bottle.

Now that you’re a pseudo certified pole chemist, enjoy and happy anti-ash, grippy poling to you!
