Making your own Coconut Oil Suppositories

Postby Toobusy » 17 May 2014, 04:20

I finally perfected a way to make coconut oil suppositories.

Coconut Oil
Smoothie Straws (they are bigger around than regular ones) or milkshake straws.
Pinch Nose pliers

You can use regular drinking straws if you have a way to fill them..I just found that the smoothie/milkshake straws are easier to fill and a better sit for insertion.

Cut the straws in half. With Pinch Nose pliers, crimp the bottom of a straw leaving a bit past the pliers exposed. Use the lighter to melt the end and then slide the pliers down and crimp to make a seal.

After you seal all your straws (I make about 4 straws at a time ..8 half straws). Melt the coconut oil for 30-40 secs in the microwave or until melted. I do it in a measuring cup with spout. Pour the oil into the straws and place your filled straw in a short cup or any container that will hold them upright.

Place in refrigerator or freezer until solid. Cut off the crimped end (some of mine will leak if I don't get the seal done well enough) off the straw. Let it sit for a few mins. Then you can usually squeeze it out of the straw onto a paper towel or plate or whatever you want. Leaving it sit for a few minutes at room temp helps get it out. Otherwise, for stubborn ones, I use a piece of dowel stick --or anything that will fit into the straw and is long enough--to push it out.

Use a knife and cut the bars into pieces. Mine are about 1/2 - 3/4" long.

Store in small container or ziplock bag in refrigerator. Use as needed. They melt pretty quick when inserting so expect that. I take vinyl gloves (Allergic to latex) and cut the fingers off to use on one finger to insert like a finger cot.
