Women and vulva owners everywhere know that maintaining vaginal health can feel like a full-time job. I’m talking about periods, pH, and skin irritation. That’s right, our vulva and vagina need a lot of maintenance and deserve some serious pampering. Momotaro Apatheca claims to have created a line of natural, organic products that do just that, and they gave me the opportunity to try them all. So, I did, and I’ve got a lot to say.
What is Momotaro Apotheca?
Momotaro Apoethca is a certified organic, cruelty-free vulva and vaginal healthcare line that is designed to support your body’s natural ability to heal. Their line of products includes the Momotaro Salve, The Suppository, The Momotaro Probiotic, The Tonic, the Hydrosol, and the Momotaro Body Oil.
Each of these products has a specific purpose. Some address vaginal health issues that cause odor, itching, burning, and vaginal discomfort including PH imbalances that result in yeast and bacterial vaginosis infections, some address skin issues that lead to pain and irritation, and some do a bit of everything.
Here is the rundown of my experience using all of the Momotaro Apotheca products.
Momotaro Salve Review
Momotaro Salve is one of the first and most popular products created by the company. This salve was created to “do it all”. It can be used to soothe dry, irritated skin anywhere on your body, but it’s specifically made so that it is safe to apply directly to your vulva.
Momotaro contains the following ingredients in its 1oz container:
· Organic Coconut Oil
· Organic Kokum Butter
· Organic Beeswax
· Organic Jojoba
· Organic Tea Tree
· Organic Goldenseal
· Organic Echinacea
· Organic Calendula
· Organic Oregon Grape
Each ingredient has its purpose. The Coconut and Jojoba Oil base is designed to protect and support the skin’s natural moisture barrier so you avoid the irritation associated with dryness, sex, and chaffing from clothing and exercise. Goldenseal, Echinacea, and Calendula are all anti-inflammatories and are included to address symptoms associated with yeast and bacterial infections.
The Tea Tree Oil adds a wonderfully cooling sensation that feels particularly lovely on raw or agitated skin.
The salve comes in a small round jar. It’s soft and has a creamy consistency that spreads smoothly over your skin. You are meant to use about a pea size and apply it directly on your vulva.
I find the scent (heavily leaning toward Tea Tree) pleasant and refreshing. I applied it to my newly lasered (hair removal) vulva and instantly delighted in the sensation. The salve absorbed nicely into my skin so that I didn’t feel sticky or goopy. I also noticed that after a couple of days of using it, I experienced less irritation along my bikini line where I often get bumps and chaffing from my panty line.
While I didn’t experience BV, a yeast infection, or any other vaginal health issue while using the salve, I can say that I highly recommend using it regularly after showering or any activity that causes chafing. The cooling and moisturizing effects are incredible and the salve leaves me feeling fresh and sexy throughout the day.

The Hydrosol is my favorite Momotaro product. This pH balancing micromist is made to be used on the face, body, and vulva. I save mine specifically for my vulva because my pussy deserves a little special treatment.
- Organic Orange Blossom (Citrus Aurantium Amara)
- Organic Rose Water (Rosa Damascena)
- Organic Rosemary Distillate (Rosmarinums Officinalis)
- Organic Lavender Distillate (Lavandula Angustifolia)
- Glyceryl Caprylate
- Glyceryl Undecylenate
Formulated with a proprietary blend of steam-distilled botanicals, the mist’s antiseptic properties help prevent irritation, and breakouts, and soothe any inflammation that might occur as a result of sweat or chaffing. Think hydration plus pH balance
I use this product after my shower every day. I absolutely love the gorgeous slightly floral with a hint of spice scent. Note: there are absolutely no scents added to the mist so it is 100% safe for your pussy.
But, where the hydrosol really excels is at those moments when you need a refresh, but don’t have the time or ability to get one. For example, more often than not, I don’t have time to shower after the gym which sets me up for throwing my vagina’s pH all out of whack and negatively affecting my vaginal health. Now, I simply bring some extra undies and my hydrosol and I feel instantly refreshed and have had exactly zero issues with yeast infections.
This summer, Momotaro’s hydrosol has been my vulva’s best friend. With the heat working overtime, I use the spray midday to freshen up and cool down, down there. I also use it regularly after sex.
It’s like a mini spa for your kitty. Every vulva owner should have a bottle of this stuff.
The bath tonic is a home spa treatment for your pussy and soul. What do I mean by that? This tonic can be used in your bath for a soak or applied directly to the skin. Though its vaginal health purpose is to provide a natural treatment for yeast and soothe irritated vulva skin, it comes with a bonus feature which is its powerful aroma therapy. Tea Tree and Cedar Wood oils combine to create an atmosphere that is truly soothing and relaxing. Five minutes in a bath with this vitamin-rich tonic and you’ll feel like a new woman.
- Organic Jojoba Oil
- Organic Tea Tree Essential Oil
- Cedarwood Virginia Essential Oil
- Organic Sweet Orange Essential Oil ·
- Infusion of Goldenseal
- Oregon Grape
I put about 10 droppers full of tonic into a warm bath for a soak. The tonic makes for a wonderful and refreshing addition to any bath. I’ve also used it on razor rash and found it to be soothing.
If you are sensitive to bath oils or salts with scents, Momotaro tonic is a great replacement that feels just as luxurious without the vaginal irritation after.
Momotaro Body Oil
Whether you use body oil every day after you shower to keep your skin hydrated and healthy, or you want a sexy body oil to use for massage, Momotaro has found a natural blend of ingredients that will keep you feeling sexy and yummy all day long and even in the bedroom at night. This body oil can be used everywhere!
- Sunflower Seed Oil

This body oil is indulgent! It has a gorgeous earthy/spicey scent that brings out the romantic in me. I love to use it before a night out just to layer the scent with my natural pheromones while ensuring that my asking stays hydrated and silky soft.
It also sets the mood for the perfect intimate massage. You’re guaranteed a happy ending when Momotaro body oil glides on.
Oregon grape, coconut oil, calendula, and echinacea combine in these soft vaginal suppositories to address vaginal health pH imbalance that causes yeast infections naturally. Before you head to the grocery store to buy over-the-counter suppositories that are guaranteed to cause vaginal irritation and upset, try the Momotaro suppositories.
They are soothing, provide quick itch relief, and are free of harmful chemicals.
I’ve had exactly one yeast infection this year and I used these suppositories for 5 days in a row. I found them to be less messy than the store-bought Monistat alternative. They provide instant relief from the symptoms of yeast infection and did not cause additional discomfort.
If you are a person who has a vagina, then you need to be on probiotics. They are a game changer for vaginal health and wellness, especially if you struggle with pH balance issues including regular yeast infections and BV infections. Momotaro has created a daily probiotic deliberately formulated to protect, promote, and maintain a healthy gut, immune system, and vaginal microbiome. This probiotic includes 25 billion active cultures that help regulate flora and promote a healthy microbiome and 10 strain-specific bacteria clinically proven to support optimal vaginal and gut health.
It’s everything you need in one probiotic.
