Enema Kit Instructions

Why do an enema?

The colon carries out 2 vital functions that are so important to a healthy digestive system:

  • It collects and removes waste and toxins from the body, and
  • It absorbs water and nutrients from our food before releasing it into the bloodstream.

An accumulation of waste and toxins can interfere with the body's metabolism, so you may even experience higher energy levels and increased weight loss as a result. If you've been feeling heavy or sluggish, it could be time for an internal flush.

Before you Start

It’s important to wash your enema kit 2-3 times before using it for the first time. We recommend using a natural soap, such as Dr. Bronner’s Castile Soap or Young Living Thieves, and warm water. 

Familiarise yourself with the parts, how to put your kit together and choose which attachment you would like to use. Refer to the diagram below to assist.

Also, your kit is private, so it’s for your butt only. :)


1. Choose a time. 

We recommend doing an enema first thing in the morning on an empty stomach (ideally after a bowel movement), when you won't be interrupted. However, if this time doesn’t work with your schedule, any time during the day or evening when you feel comfortable is fine. 

2. Fill the enema bag. 

Using lukewarm (body temperature) filtered water, fill the bag with 1-2 litres of your chosen solution (recipes below). Careful not to overfill.

Use the easy-to-hang hook to hang the bag no more than 3 feet above where you will be doing the enema. The flow control clamp helps to ensure a consistent gentle stream. Make sure there is no air in the tubing by allowing a little of the solution to release into the sink, then clamp the tube to stop the flow.

3. Choose a comfortable position.

Lying Down (on side) - Lie on your left side with your left leg straight and your right leg bent forward toward the chest. 

Lying Down (on back) - Lie on your back with your legs apart and knees bent.

Squatting - Sit in a squatting position as if having a bowel movement. 

4. Insert tube.

Lubricate the tip with oil, such as olive, coconut, almond or grapeseed. Take a few deep breaths to help relax the muscles. With steady pressure, gently insert enema tip into your anus with the tip pointing toward the navel (approx. 3 inches). Do not force it as it could cause injury. 

5. Let it flow.

Unclamp the tube to the flow you are comfortable with and gravity will allow the solution to flow. Lightly massage your abdomen in small circles on the lower left side of your abdomen to assist with the flow into your colon.

Once the bag is nearly empty, or your body has taken as much fluid as it allows, clamp the tube to stop the flow of water and gently remove the tip. Continue laying down until the urge to have a bowel movement is strong. Go to the toilet and let your body do its thing.

Continue with the enema until all the water has been used. As you become more comfortable and experienced, refill the bag 2-3 times for maximum efficiency. 

Be sure to clean equipment thoroughly after every use, including in between refills. Refer to cleaning instructions below.


The best time to douche is first thing in the morning before you shower. The most comfortable and hygienic place to douche is the toilet, however you may prefer the bathtub or shower.

Combine 750ml of lukewarm filtered water with 80-100ml of apple cider vinegar, then pour the solution into the durable silicone bag. Using the easy-to-hang hook, position the bag no more than 3 feet above where you will be. 

The flow control clamp helps to ensure a consistent gentle stream. Allow a little of the solution to release into the toilet or sink, then clamp the tube to stop the flow. This releases any air bubbles.

Sit on the toilet (or position yourself with your hips pointing upwards in the bath) and gently insert the nozzle into your vagina as far as it goes. Release the clamp and allow the water to gently spray into your vagina then drain into the toilet. Remove the nozzle and stay seated for an extra 30-60 seconds so it drains completely.


We recommend using filtered water only in your solutions and ensure the solution is a comfortable temperature (between 36-38C or 98-102F - body temperature is best).

Note: The recommended time to retain the enema solutions is set out in each solution recipe. However, always listen to your body. This process should not cause high levels of discomfort.

Clean and sanitise your kit after EVERY use and allow it to fully dry before storing away. Wash the bag with soap and water. Use natural soap or make your own. 

Allow the bag, tubing and nozzle to soak for several minutes, then remove and rinse with plain tap water. Lastly, run warm soapy water through the bag and tubing until empty.
