Essential Oil Enema

picture of essential oils


Taking an enema doesn't have to be salts, soaps and coffee's. It can be as relaxing and healing to the inner body as a trip to a spa.

Aromatherapy is a holistic, natural way of healing many disorders and essential oils are the most important part of aromatherapy; in enemas too, essential oils play an important part in healing and soothing the colon.

Essential oils are often used in an enema for their antibacterial, antiviral and ant fungal properties. These oils are able to provide excellent results in cleaning the human body from fecal matters and healing the colon.

When considering aromatherapy and enemas, strive to make the experience as 'spiritual' in nature as possible. Balance and harmony between mind and body will make for a relaxing and purifying treatment. Light candles or burn incense, allow for plenty of time and concentrate on clearing the mind.  Know that you are being the best 'custodian' of your physical self as you can be, that you are attending to the inner you as well as the spiritual or outer self.

Essential Oils and their Properties:

Some essential oils used in enemas are hard to find in local stores, or a bit more rare than others.  We are happy to recommend our favorite and trusted merchants who carry superior products at reasonable rates.

Lavender Oil:
Lavender oil is considered the safest oil of all essential oils and is commonly used for several problems. This oil works well added to an enema because of its wonderful healing properties. It works great for hemorrhoids, anal fissures, nausea and chronic headaches. This oil also helps fight stress and builds confidence about taking an enema. Take several drops of lavender oil and gently rub on your abdomen, it will not only help you relax but also help relieve any anxiety associated with taking an enema.
 Add 6 to 10 drops in your enema water and enjoy a relaxing enema.

Fennel, Tarragon, Ginger, Lemon, and Rosemary:
These oils when used together give an excellent healing effect to the colon area. However, these essential oils have many specific qualities but show the best result when used together. Mix not more than 16 drops of these oils with grape seed oil and then implant into the colon area with your enema. All of these oils are very effective in clearing up toxins and destroying unhealthy bacteria, yeast and parasites in the colon.

From that period, this blend is used to fight and control a lot of diseases. It has therapeutic properties and is very effective against airborne bacteria. This essential oil blend should be used on the hand and around the neck, before and after taking an enema. 

Myrtle and Myrrh Essential Oils:
These essential oils work well with enemas. In 2-4 quarts of filtered water, mix a teaspoon of sea salt and add 4 drops of myrtle and/or myrrh oil. With this enema mixture, one can take the enema up to 3 times, but it depends on person to person; if one feels two is enough, don't do any more.

Leaky gut syndrome is a proposed condition of an altered or damaged bowel lining. The term is used by some alternative medicine practitioners, but the syndrome is not a recognized diagnosis.  It is hypothesized to be caused by increased permeability of the gut wall resulting from toxins, poor diet, parasites, infection, or medications. The leaky gut then allows substances such as toxins, microbes, undigested food, waste, or larger than normal macromolecules to leak through an abnormally permeable gut wall. Proponents suggest that these out-of-place substances affect the body directly or initiate an immune reaction

ThievesŪ:  Equal amounts of eucalyptus, rosemary, cinnamon bark, clove and lemon. Mix with base of olive oil.

Irritable bowel syndrome: (IBS, or spastic colon) is a symptom-based diagnosis characterized by chronic abdominal pain, discomfort, bloating, and alteration of bowel habits

Diverticulitis: A disease characterized by  small, bulging sacs or pouches of the inner lining of the intestine (diverticulosis) that become inflamed or infected. Most often, these pouches are in the large intestine (colon)
Thought to be caused by a diet low in fiber, it's very common in people over 60.
