How to make Herbal suppositories?
Suppositories are commonly made from a combination of cocoa butter and another semifluid oil such as coconut or vegetable oil such as sesame oil. Suppositories are typically indicated for vaginal infections and inflammation, cervical dysplasia, rectal fissures, and hemorrhoids. (Romm) I have used aromatic suppositories for the treatment of both hemorrhoids and a rectal fissure with great success. The term suppository is derived from the Latin
 which means,
“something placed beneath’. Pesssary
is an interchangeable term, referring specifically to a vaginal suppository. One can make herbal or aromatic suppositories to address the conditions listed above.  According to Schnaubelt (2011), French-style aromatherapy has found (rectal) suppositories to be hugely effective in the treatment of serious acute and chronic bronchitis. Essential oils delivered via (rectal) suppositories go directly to the lung tissues, specifically the lower bronchial capillaries. They are fed directly into the heart-lung circulatory system without first being subjected to biotransformation by the liver detoxification enzyme system. Consequently, they reach the lower bronchial capillaries in their original lipophilic and volatile state, still capable of eliminating pathogenic microorganisms and dissolving and expectorating mucus.
When are they indicated?
 As stated above, suppositories are indicated for vaginal infections and inflammation, cervical dysplasia, rectal fissures, and hemorrhoids and for acute or chronic bronchitis. For vaginal infections and inflammation and cervical dysplasia use vaginal suppositories. For rectal fissures, hemorrhoids, and bronchitis or respiratory infections use rectal suppositories.
How to make:
The ingredients you will need include: 20 gms of Organic cocoa butter (about 1/4 cup) 10mls Organic sesame oil OR coconut oil (about 1 tablespoon)
Ingredients for suppository making
Prior to making the suppositories I cleaned/sterilized all pots, the measuring cup, bowl to weigh cocoa butter, and wooden spoon I would use to make suppository mold with. And of course, I washed my hands.
Steps to make suppositories: Step One
First thing to do is make your suppository molds. You can do this by wrapping
aluminum foil around the handle of a ‘thin’ wooden spoon handle. Wrap about 4 or 5
times around then cut and press to make sure it holds together. Remove foil from spoon handle and fold one end up a couple of times. Place mold in cup so it standsI ended up needing two molds.
