How To Make Essential Oil Suppositories
Why Are Suppositories Recommended
The two types of suppositories recommended are;
- For women- Vaginal
The purpose of using essential oils in a suppository delivery system is for healing tissue or importantly to directly absorb the essential oils into the system. This method of absorption is both immediate and efficient.
You can insert these suppositories into the colon or for female ailments, women can insert these suppositories vaginally. For all kinds of general health issues, the colon delivery method is most common. Another benefit to using colon suppositories is that even persons with compromised digestive systems can receive full benefits of these oils even if by mouth they cannot. Those who wish to use essential oil pills as a supplement may often experience indigestion, especially with existing digestive problems, so by using the suppository, absorption is possible and effective.
Individuals with digestive disorders, do not assimilate their vitamins or foods effectively. By using a suppository you will absorb the medicinal effects of these oils directly into the system. The health issue you are dealing with does not have to be an issue with the colon, but rather for many health problems where essential oils are needed therapeutically. Essential oils are much stronger than powdered herb suppositories and for this reason they are often preferred over your standard powdered herb type which are generally made using cocoa butter.
Consider the colon as a direct delivery of the oils into the body. Just as pain medication is often used as a suppository in hospitals or for convalescent care in those who cannot eat, essential oil suppositories can be used in the same delivery system very effectively. For women using vaginal delivery, the best time for insertion is a bedtime. A panty liner is used to protect bedding and clothing.
These suppositories are easy to make and exceptional in their effects.

Choose an ice cube tray with round cubes which range from small 1/2 inch up to 1 inch or slightly larger size.

Determining your essential oil combination is specific to your health concern. Some oils are stronger than others—this is why the range it from 2 to 5 drops of each oil selected. Some oils may not be suitable for suppositories, such as clove for example, which is too strong for the tissue. Most oils are fine, just use 2 drops instead of 5.
