Use Essential Oils and Herbs in a Sitz Bath for Hemorrhoid Relief

If you have swollen hemorrhoids, a sitz bath can help you reduce them and speed your recover. Fill a tub with warm or hot water. Use the temperature that will not irritate your hemorrhoids.

Stir in the oils with your hand and then sit in the bath with your knee raised for 10-15 minutes three times a day. This position helps to bring more blood into your hemorrhoid area, which brings in more nutrients and to pulls out toxic waste.

After 15 minutes, take a shower with water as cold as you can take.

After this sitz bath and shower, you can use one of the herbal paste or ointments directly on your hemorrhoids and leave it on over night.

After the sitz bath take a cold shower to stimulate blood circulation in the hemorrhoid area.

Witch Hazel and a Basin

Prepare a small tub, container or basin that you can sit in and add some warm distilled water. Add 1/4 cup of witch hazel liquid to the water. Sit in the small tub as long as you can and do it as often as you can. This will relieve your hemorrhoids in 3 to 4 days.
