How To Make Essential Oil Suppositories

Essential Oil Suppository Recipes

What is an essential oil rectal suppository?

An essential oil rectal suppository is plant medicine delivered into the rectum, where it melts and is absorbed into the bloodstream. These do-it-yourself (DIY) suppositories offer healing plant compounds both systemically and locally. Essential oils are transporters of fundamental nutrients necessary to feed and nurture all the cells of the body.

Why deliver the essential oils through the colon?

We use essential oils in the colon because of the rectum's ability to rapidly absorb the plant's chemical constituents through its mucosal surfaces, because of the greater amounts of lymphoid tissue in the colon than in the stomach and the small intestines, and because pH levels in the rectum are more optimal than pH levels in the stomach.

pH levels of colon: 5.5 to 7
pH levels of stomach: 1 to 3

Essential oils work best in an alkaline environment. The acidic internal terrain of the upper GI tract can decrease the potency of the therapeutic constituents of the plant.

The main reason that rectal administration is not frequently used within medical settings is that it is not clinically practical.

Why use essential oils in the colon?

The oils of many plants, like our blood, carry oxygen, nutrients, and antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal elements to regenerate the plant's tissue. Essential oils play a role in initiating the regeneration process in plants, similar to what blood does in the human body.

Drugs clog and confuse receptor sites. Essential oils detoxify receptor sites. Drugs depress the immune system. Essential oils enhance the functioning of the immune system. Many drugs, such as antibiotics, attack bacteria indiscriminately, killing both the health-promoting and the health-destroying bacteria. Essential oils attack only the harmful bacteria, allowing our body's friendly flora to flourish.

Today approximately 300 essential oils are distilled or extracted, with several thousand chemical constituents and aromatic molecules identified and registered. Because essential oils are composites of hundreds of different chemicals, they can exert many different effects on the body. Because of their complexity, essential oils do not disturb the body's natural balance or homeostasis when used as medicine.

Essential oils also stimulate the secretion of antibodies, neurotransmitters, endorphins, hormones, and enzymes. Essential oils containing limonene have been shown to prevent or slow the progression of cancer. Essential oils such as lavender have been shown to promote the growth of hair and increase the rate of wound healing. Some oils also increase the uptake of oxygen and ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the fuel for individual cells. Laboratory studies have now documented molecules such as sesquiterpenes and phenols which are responsible for carrying the highest numbers of oxygen molecules.

European scientists have studied the ability of essential oils to work as natural chelators, binding with heavy metals and petrochemicals and helping to carry them out of the body. Essential oils used in the colon can improve the elimination process, promote healing of the lining of the colon, reduce inflammation, heal anal fissures, optimize prostate health, eliminate Candida overgrowth, and promote a healthy flora balance.

An ounce of clove essential oil has the antioxidant capacity of 450 pounds of carrots, 120 quarts of blueberries, or 48 gallons of beet juice!

Insufficient nutrient intake means that one or more systems of the body will not function properly, which will stress other systems, calling on ever greater resources at the cellular level. The cellular level is where the deepest source of health resides, in the mitochondria, the intracellular "organelles" that make ATP, which is the fuel that runs cellular operations. If mitochondrial metabolism is insufficient, you will age more quickly and be sick more often.

The addition of sufficient nutrients is the single best way to begin improving your health.

In summary, essential oils are nature's most effective delivery agent for feeding your body's several trillion cells with nutrition and oxygen, helping to eliminate toxins and assisting the body to heal.

We strongly advise you to consult with your medical doctor or a knowledgeable health practitioner before using any essential oils internally to ensure a safe and optimal program for your individual body.

When planning to introduce a new essential oil into your healthcare program, test one drop on a small patch of skin first (e.g., on the underside of the forearm). Sensitivity to particular essential oils is highly individual. If the skin feels hot or turns red, this indicates sensitivity, and this essential oil or blend should NOT be used in your healthcare program. Apply a vegetable oil (e.g., olive or almond) to the area, which will dilute the essential oil. Washing with water is less effective.

Apply only one new essential oil or blend at a time to the patch of skin to determine how your body responds. Wait 30 minutes before testing another new essential oil.

DO NOT attempt to self-diagnose or prescribe any natural substances for health conditions that require professional attention. Consult your healthcare professional about any serious disease, medical condition, or injury, or if you are pregnant, nursing, or planning to become pregnant.

DO NOT use wild tansy, clary sage, sage, fennel, wintergreen, or hyssop essential oils during pregnancy.

LATEX ENEMA BAGS: Do not use essential oils in latex (rubber) enema bags. Essential oils degrade latex over time. Use essential oils only in silicone, stainless steel, or plastic enema equipment.
