Herbal Suppositories: Why they Work & Other FAQ

Our Herbal Suppositories are such a hot topic. Women always inquire about them and ask questions.  Here’s the scoop!

What is Suppository? The word suppository is derived from the Latin suppositorum, which means, “something placed beneath”. Using an internal method of herbal suppository is deeply therapeutic and often leads to dramatic results in a short period. Suppositories have been used traditionally to treat a multitude of illnesses because the colon/vagina are direct delivery methods into the body. Suppositories are used to administer medicine, in preparation for surgery or examinations and for other medical reasons. 

What are essential oils?  Our suppositories contain essential oils. Essential oils are compounds extracted from plants; obtained through distillation (via steam and/or water) or mechanical methods, such as cold pressing. These oils capture the plant’s scent and flavor, also called its “essence” (unique aromatic compounds) and the chemicals in essential oils can interact with your body in several ways. Essential oils contain medicinal properties that support tissue integrity, reduce irritation and inflammation, and lubricate the vaginal/rectual tissue.  

How do suppositories work? The reason that the suppositories work is because the body absorbs medicinal properties from vaginal/rectal suppositories quickly. They in some ways can work faster than medications taken by mouth. This is because suppositories melt inside the body and absorb directly into the bloodstream. Just think about how many times your grandmother mentioned taking a rectal enema for softening hard stools. Our suppositories are made from herbal ingredients that are anti-inflammatory to the mucous membranes, astringent to excessive discharges and damaged tissue, and antibacterial. They are used extensively for vaginal infections and inflammation, rectal fissures, and hemorrhiods. It is recommended that women wear a sanitary napkin when the suppository is in place so that the melting oil will not stain the undergarments.​

Green Tea…really? A 2009 study from the Canadian Journal of Microbiology established Green Tea’s efficiency in treating yeast infections. According to the study, Green Tea disrupts the establishment of Candida Albicans.   Other medical research suggests that Green Tea can be used in neutralizing the excess yeast cells formation in the vaginal area.  If you aren’t sure about using our Green Tea Suppositories, drink some Green Tea.  Go ahead, drink a cup or two of high quality organic Green Tea daily.

But Coconut Oil…that doesn’t seem like it would work? Yes, coconut oil, not just just any.  The type of coconut oils matters just as much as the harvesting…organic, virgin, cold-pressed unrefined.  A 2007 study clearly stated that “Coconut oil should be used in the treatment of fungal infections in view of emerging drug-resistant Candida species” as this oil contains Lauric Acid which is an antifungal.  Do not use coconut oil with latex condoms, the oil can break down the barrier thus not providing protection!

Why do the suppositories have to be kept frozen?  Sounds weird, I know. However, keeping suppositories in the freezer is perfectly safe.  Your freezer stays the same temperature day and night providing a consistent climate and the freezing process does not kill any significant amount of the probiotic cultures. During the freezing process, the cultures go into a dormant state, but when returned to a warm temperature within the body, the cultures become active again and are capable of providing all of the intended benefits of probiotics. It is safe to put essential oils in the freezer is perfectly safe. The consistent temperature and lack of light help to preserve your oils.

Why do our Herbal Suppositories work vs. conventional treatments? I won’t tell you that conventional treatments don’t work. What I will tell you is that you have options. Herbal suppositories work efficiently without the side effects of conventional treatments, including nausea, vomiting, and antibiotics resistance among others. Medical studies and trials are proving that suppositories and probiotic therapy work. After reading MANY medical trials and studies, I will spare you the technical details and give you the highlights below:

  1. Recurrent bacterial vaginosis can cause psychologic distress as women feel shame about the odor and avoid sexual relations.  Not to mention this whole ordeal is painful!
  2. Yeast infections are common with an extended treatment regimen of antibiotics.  This means that the rounds and rounds of antiobotics are causing yeast infections not to mention killing your immune system.
  3. Recurrence rates of bacterial vaginosis remain high even after extended regimens of antibiotics and medical research is being done to determine the most effective treatment.  
  4. Many women feel that they have no control over preventing recurrences and are concerned that the lingering infection may be harming them. They dislike what they view as toxic conventional treatments and want more options.  Boom, you’ve got options because we’ve got you covered.
  5. Women with recurrent bacterial vaginosis have a low level of satisfaction with their doctor’s management and feel that doctors are not knowledgeable about the condition. There are seven different combinations of conventional medication that doctors can choose.  
  6. The same medications have been used for many years and have been unable to produce a lasting cure in many women affected by recurrent bacterial vaginosis.
  7. Probiotics can help to re-establish the lactobacilli in the vagina and help prevent recurrence of bacterial vaginosis.
  8. double-blind, randomized controlled study found that after 6 weeks of probiotic treatment, 62% of women in the probiotic group and 27% in the placebo group achieved a balanced vaginal microbiota.
  9. 2018 trial was conducted on 127 with bacterial vaginosis concluded that herbal suppositories “has a therapeutic effect the same as metronidazole in bacterial vaginosis”. There was no statistically significant difference between the metronidazole. Common antibiotics for the treatment of BV include metronidazole, tinidazole and clindamycin.  Unfortunately, treatments often occur with a recurrence and failure. Therefore, alternative treatments are necessary. Many natural treatments are recommended for this condition” 
  10. Women without strong populations of Lactobacillus suffer more frequently from bacterial vaginosis.  This indicates that your gut and immune system is compromised and needs healing.


So there you have it.  If you feel a yeast infection coming, want extra lubrication, need additional support before & after your cycle, Tea Tree Suppositories will work well. If you have bacteria vaginosis or a reoccurring yeast infection our Green Tea option or Coochie Care package is your best bet. I encourage you all to do your own research!  I hope that this long ass blog post was informative that you learned something new!
