How to Make Suppositories

Sharing is Caring!

Take a jar of coconut oil and place the jar in a bowl of hot water if it is solid and if it is not in a liquid state already.

Pour the coconut oil into a bowl and begin adding powdered herbs to the oil until a dry pie dough consistency is reached.

Do not pour all of the powder into a bowl and then pour your whole jar of coconut oil in because you could either have too much or too little oil and have to order more powder or go back to the store for another jar of coconut oil.

Neither use all of your coconut oil or all of your powder, so you can always add more of either.

Once you have your mixture in a consistency that is easy to shape, form the herb mixture into the size and shape of the suppository you desire.

Take into consideration the size of the opening into which it will be inserted and shape one end into a rounded point for easy insertion. A bullet or acorn shape is good and allows you to have one end flat.

Once you have finished shaping your suppository, stand the flat side on a piece of wax paper, stainless steel, or glass plate and refrigerate them.

Refrigeration will make them hard. Once they are hard you can quickly put them into a cold jar and return them to the refrigerator for storage. A pre-refrigerated jar is perfect and will prevent a melt.

Just before bed, take one suppository out of the refrigerated jar returning the others immediately to the fridge. Hold the suppository between your fingers for just a few seconds (the coconut oil will begin to melt).

Lubricate the opening of the body orifice and insert the suppository into the area you want to benefit from the herbs and coconut oil.

The herbs will disperse as your body temperature causes the coconut oil to melt. If you are in a reclining position, the herbs will tend to stay in the area where you placed them whereas if you are standing, gravity will tend to allow them to run out.

Use one suppository each night until your condition is corrected.

    I have searched all over to get good direction on home made suppository.  This is the best, how ever, you didn’t say how to get the shape to look like that on your picture.  Any suggestion on shaping.

    Optional Health’s web site has some Ice Cube looking trays, you just pour, let it harden, and pop them out and use. Works really well.

    What herbs do you recommend for hemorrhoid suppositories made with coconut oil?

    • Dee Braun March 8, 2015 at 10:50 am #

      Hi JD, cocoa butter would be better to use (in my opinion) simply because it will hold its form quite a bit better (it is also very emollient and soothing). Or us, half cocoa butter and half coconut oil. That being said, here are a few good herbs you could use:

      Comfrey root and white oak bark both work together to regenerate and purify the veins and capillaries in the rectum.

      Slippery Elm – Soothes inflamed mucous membranes of the rectum.

      Marshmallow root – soothes and heals mucous membranes

      Calendula flowers – antibacterial and anti-inflammatory and can help pain

      A witch hazel sitz bath is also often recommended. Put a pint of witch hazel into a bath tub filled with 2 inches of warm water and sit in it for at least 20 minutes.

      I hope this helps!

      Many blessings,
