"I'm Dee Dee Delkamp of the Optimal Health Center and today we're going to talk about essential oils and the use of essential oils in the therapeutic aids in the treatment of the colon.
How this came about is, we started to use essential oils
here at the Center for a variety of reasons. It has been scientifically proven that the colon is a highly absorbable point for therapeutic agents; it absorbs things very readily. Therefore, we decided to use essential oils in the colon for therapeutic reasons.
One of the ways I started using oils is in suppositories. I use this ice cube tray, one that I found at a local grocery store. Some people have had problems finding them so I do help people find these, or we might have them here at the center also. It's a nice rounded opening and it pops things out really easily.
I use coconut oil
with the trays to make the suppositories, as well as a blend of essential oils. Today I'm using peppermint and chamomile.
The suppository is more readily and quickly absorbed into the colon; so you can insert a suppository of coconut oil and essential oils for just about any ailment. Essential oils can be used for a variety of different things and it will absorb very quickly and efficiently in the colon, sometimes even better than in the digestive system. Some people have a very compromised digestive system, so when they take a pill the digestive system might not be as effective because it's not working correctly. It might have to fight to absorb it into the body efficiently. Therefore, this can be a more efficient way of dispensing that treatment.
So what I use is a rounded ice cube tray
; we do have these at the center. They're very nice because you can just pop that suppository out when you are finished with it.
How I start is, I use melted coconut oil. For example this is extra-virgin, unrefined, organic coconut oil. In the cooler months it is solid, so you might want to run it under hot water to get it melted. You will need it melted to start.
The first thing we're going to do is pour that ice cube section halfway full of coconut oil. After we've done that we're going to put it in the freezer for a couple of hours, half full.
After a couple of hours are going to remove the ice cube tray. It is half full of coconut oil right now. We're going to place our essential oil drops into the top of that coconut oil section. Between two and five drops per oil is what I use; sometimes I might mix these individually for a person so they might have five different oils in their mixture, all in one bottle.
Today I am using the peppermint and the chamomile. I use this to quite often for constipation, they work very well. People have been using smaller versions of this children and it seems to work out very well also.
So once I have the essential oil on top of the frozen coconut oil I will then fill up the section with the rest of the coconut oil. You can make a variety of these ahead of time; you can fill your entire ice cube tray so it's ready to go for each day you want to use a suppository.
Put that in the freezer for a couple more hours and then when you take your ice cube tray out the suppository will be completely solid. You just pop it out and it's got a very nice rounded edge which is self-lubricating because as soon as it touches a warm part of your body it begins to melt. It's very easy to insert, goes in the rectum very well. You just slide it right in there. It starts to melt pretty quickly inside the body; you don't really notice it. Then the essential oils start to absorb into the colon walls very readily and quickly.
As I said, essential oils can be used for a variety of different things. For example, you can use them for hemorrhoids, anal fissures
, high blood pressure, weight loss... Almost anything that you can think of, there's an essential oil combination that would be good for that. If you're putting it in with a suppository you're going to get that absorption very quickly."
