Enema Nozzle Lubricants
Super Salve, enema soaps, coconut oil, and Surgilube may be purchased from our extensive product website.
Always lubricate your enema nozzle well. Being attentive to lubricating your enema nozzle properly is the most reliable way to tend to the anus and the rectum.
The anus and the rectum need to be treated with utmost care while you are taking an enema so as not to cause any damage to these sensitive tissues or to aggravate hemorrhoids or anal fissures. For this purpose, it is recommended to use a lubricant that is both viscous and nutritious.
A viscous enema nozzle lubricant, meaning a lubricant with a thick and sticky consistency, allows the enema nozzle to move smoothly into the rectal area, without irritating the anus.
A nutritious enema nozzle lubricant contains substances that promote a healthy anus and rectum. Enema nozzle lubricants are also food to the colon, providing the colon with needed energy and more ability to repair damaged tissue and grow new tissue.
Super Salve is the most therapeutic anal lubricant. The herbs and oils in Super Salve promote elasticity and strength of the anus. Additionally, this enema nozzle lubricant is full of antioxidants and is anti-fungal and anti-bacterial.
To clean Super Salve off of your enema nozzle, use hot water and a healthy soap like Dr. Bonner’s Castile Soap or Goat Milk Soap.
Coconut oil is an organic, plant-based lubricant that is anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal. Use this enema lubricant liberally because organic, unrefined coconut oil is a healing and energizing food for the colon. Unrefined organic coconut oil contains lauric acid and other medium-chain fatty acids. These super fatty acids are quickly metabolized and converted into energy in the body.
Surgilube is a sterile, water-soluble lubricating jelly. Its only advantage over Super Salve and coconut oil is that it very easy to clean off the nozzle. However, Surgilube is not healing to the anus. Surgilube is bacteriostatic, meaning that it restricts the growth and activity of bacteria without killing them.
Enema lubricants can cause allergic reactions.
Never use a lubricant with fragrance.

Never use petroleum jelly or other petroleum-based products as an enema lubricant. Petroleum products take a toll on your liver.
Enema nozzles that are not well-lubricated can irritate, and sometime even tear, the anus.
Some lubricants like aloe vera gel, olive oil, and vitamin E are nutritious to the colon’s tissues but often not properly viscous (thick and sticky).
Viscosity is the attribute of an enema nozzle lubricant that allows the most safety to your anus and rectum while taking your enema.
Remember: Do NOT use a petroleum-based lubricant for your enema nozzle.
