How to Make Herbal Boluses and Suppositories

Herbs can be used in a number of different ways. One way to prepare herbs is into boluses or suppositories. These preparations involve mixing herbs with a base such as cocoa butter, then molding them into shapes for later use. These suppositories may be inserted into the urethra, vagina, or rectum. The bases are solid at room temperature, but melt at body temperature. With that in mind, suppositories should be stored in the refrigerator, especially during warmer months. The ideal shape for a suppository is a torpedo-esque cylinder, with tapered ends, about 2 inches long. Molds can be purchased to shape them, or you can use aluminum foil.

Ingredients to Prepare Herbs

3 oz cocoa butter
1 oz finely powdered herbs

Bolus and Suppository Recipe

Combine the herbs and cocoa butter in a double boiler until they melt together. Then, pour the liquid into a mold or foil, and allow the shapes to harden. Store in the refrigerator until you are ready to use them.
