Anal Lubrication

Anal Lubrication should be an extremely important part of enema use. or when inserting anything into the anus.  Without anal lubrication it is possible to tear, cut or rip the sensitive anal tissue especially if you have hemorrhoids.

Always lubricate your enema nozzle well. Being sure to properly lubricate your enema nozzle is the most reliable way to nurture  the anus and the rectum.  Proper lubricants are nourishment to the colon, providing the colon with the means to repair damaged tissue and grow new tissue.

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, allows the enema nozzle to move smoothly into the rectal area, without irritating the anus.

Their are many different types of lubricants that you can use.  Some of our favorites that work well are:
Coconut Oil
KY-Jelly Personal Lubricant
Astroglide Personal Lubricant

You can also use mineral oil, olive oil, vegetable oil and some people even use hand lotion {not recommended because of some of the ingredients can be very irritating to the anal tissues}.  Most hand lotions have alcohol in them , which can cause a burning sensation in the anus.

Massage the lubricant well into the anus preparing the sensitive tissues for the enema nozzle.
If you are using something as large as a double balloon catheter or a large diameter nozzle.  You might need to distend the anus further by using two fingers and massaging the anal opening several minutes.
