How to Use Therapeutic-Grade Essential Oils in a Colon Cleanse

How to Colon Cleanse with Essential Oils

Kristina addresses using essential oils in the colon cleanse and with coconut oil suppositories. By using essential oils you can enhance the therapeutic effects of your colon cleanse and in home enema treatments.

Therapeutic-Grade Essential Oils and Colon Health

Enema Solution

Two to four drops of a cleansing oil can be added to an emulsifying soap such as Dr. Bronner's soap, or one of the Optimal Health Network's made-for-enema soaps. By mixing the oils with soaps, the oils will disperse more fully throughout the enema solution. Cleansing oils include OHN Colon Cleanse Blend, peppermint, or any citrus oil. This formulation helps your body to thoroughly release during the colon cleanse.

Topical Application

The oils that you test well with should be applied to the abdomen in a clockwise motion prior to the enema or colonic to encourage a comfortable release. If the essential oils irritate your skin, a carrier oil such as coconut or olive can be used to dilute the essential oils before or after application.

Essential oils can be applied without dilution directly to the bottoms of the feet. The bottoms of the feet are highly absorptive and a safe location for the application of any essential oil.

Colon Hydrotherapy Session

During a colon hydrotherapy session, ask your therapist to put 3 to 20 drops of therapeutic-grade essential oils in a small amount of water for a few minutes prior to the final release. This will allow your body to absorb the healing properties of the therapeutic-grade essential oils directly into the colon.

Remember to always check that the therapeutic-grade essential oil is safe for internal use and colon therapy.

Essential Oil Suggestions for Use with Colon Hydrotherapy and/or Colon Implants

Rectal Implants

After a colon cleanse, and never without cleansing the colon first, implant 2 ounces of olive oil with the body feedback tested 3-20 drops of therapeutic essentials oils. Use an Implant Syringe with Silicone Colon Tube to deliver the remedy into the colon. Leave the rectal implant in the body for at least 30 minutes. These solutions are best left in the bowels for hours. These are not uncomfortable to hold, so you can even go about your daily activities, including sleeping, as you retain your implant. Colon implants will improve bowel regularity and be released as part of a normal bowel movement.

Essential Oil Suggestions for Use with Colon Implants


We strongly advise you to consult with your medical doctor or a knowledgeable health practitioner before using any essential oils internally. While all oils and oil blends sold by Optimal Health Network are certified as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the FDA with very few reports of ill effects, working with a healthcare professional is highly recommended 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.
