Old-fashioned Soap Suds Enema

    This enema was the tried and true standby for grandmothers and mothers for years, and is still in use in many homes today.
Soap suds enemas are used to stimulate the colon and help move the unwanted material towards the anus to facilitate a bowel movement.

   I think that many of us remember being over mothers or grandmothers lap being filled with a warm soapy solution saying we were full and couldn't take anymore. Being told what a big boy or girl we were and that there was not much more to go.
There always seemed more to go especially when you felt like you were ready to explode!

In years past people believed that the only way to have a good enema was too use soap in the enema solution.
It was also believed that you needed to use as much solution as possible to achieve a good enema, consequently most of the
enema bags or enema cans manufactured at that time held anywhere from 2 qts. to 4 qts.

During those times you often found the family enema bag hanging on the back of the bathroom door, drying ready for the next use.

Many families had a regular enema time schedule  usually once a week, or anytime that someone did not feel well.
If you were an adult or child and complained of an upset stomach usually the first thing that happened was that you were given a hot soap suds enema.

At times if you were grumpy or misbehaving you were given a hot soap suds enema and depending upon what you had done you also got an old-fashioned spanking. Usually the enema was enough to change your attitude. Many a bad attitude was adjusted with this procedure.


Enema Recipe:

2 qts. of warm  filtered water.
Dissolve approximately 1/10 of a bar of   Conti Olive Oil or Castile Bar Soap  in the 2 quarts of water.
Or experiment with some of the new organic soap made especially for enema's: 
Grassy Mint Soap,  Lemongrass and Sage soap,  Lavender Mandarin Soap, Peppermint soap, Pomegranate and Acai or perhaps a very mild soap such as goats milk soap..

Mixing as you add the warm water.
They also make a  liquid Castile soap that will mix faster with your water.
Temperature 105░Fahrenheit

Directions for taking or giving an Enema:

Repeat as needed.

Remember you should take a  
warm water rinse enema after a soap suds enema to remove the soap solution from the intestinal walls. Otherwise the soap will keep irritating the intestine lining for quite some time.
