How to do an enema without an enema kit?

Imagine you’ve eaten something so bad that it would only pass through when dragged out of your stool with stubbornness. We all have been there! In such cases, the situation becomes more problematic if your bowel movements are bogged down or stuck in a loop. Thence, comes the role of enemas, which is never first on our wish list to get things flowing down the drain – but can sometimes be an essential tool. But what happens when you don’t have an enema kit at home and need one promptly?

Let’s work together in this article as we discuss how you can give yourself relief from constipation without purchasing any commercial kits.

Understanding what Enemas Do

Before doing anything hasty, get familiar with the terrible supposition behind why someone might consider using a homemade option:

  • An enema aims to liquefy trapped stools allowing them to pass effectively.
  • They are also beneficial for cleaning out accumulated toxins from your colon walls.
  • Many people believe they promote greater hydration while combating headaches or body pains by removing immediate pressure.
  • Also found useful for weight loss purposes; however, their supposed effectiveness is often debatable among professionals.

If these points aren’t convincing enough, here’s how some like-minded individuals who preferably resort towards natural therapies make use of some unusual resources within their homes for giving themselves an at-home enema session.

Check Ahead: Ingredient Checklist

Doing everything right requires taking note of crucial ingredients beforehand. Here’s a quick checklist that will come in handy later:

  1. Water (distilled) 500ml
  2. Basin
  3. Towels – warm and dry
  4. Lubricant e.g. almond oil
Additional Workarounds

5.Toilet roll/tissue
6.A pillow/cushion
7.Squatting Stool
8. A catheter (if required)

Now that we’re ready let’s dive deep into some funny ways to get yourself an at-home enema session in your bathroom.

The Cupful Method

The cupful method is the most straightforward way of doing an enema without any commercial kits or equipment. Here’s how you do it!

  1. Boil 500ml of distilled water and let it cool until lukewarm temperature.
  2. Transfer one cup of lukewarm water to a clean, unbreakable container; ceramic or plastic cups are preferable.
  3. Get comfortable on your back with pillows beneath your head and shoulders while being near to the edge of your bed with legs facing up towards the ceiling.
    4.Place almond oil as lubricant on both your anus AND inserted end point (use wooden/plastic spoon if fingers aren’t workable).
    5.Head over and relax facilitating anal insertion using said lubricated end point removing altogether once comfortably inside (Use caution when inserting-not too far)
    6.Empty contents smoothly into rectum whilst holding leg position for about ten minutes allowing bowels complete cleanse before evacuating onto towel.

All done! Onwards we go towards another method which involves much more than just a normal cleansing process.

The Showerhead Enema

This option may seem like something only found within Hollywood movie scenes but believe me; sometimes, in life, emergencies happen unexpectedly—And situations where this can occur include no access to other resources besides tap/shower heads found within our homes :).


  • Sponge sheets/tissues/soft corks etc
  • Warm Water
  • Two towels – warm/dry
  • Lubricant (e.g., almond oil)


1.While taking a shower use sponge sheets/tissues,/or cork softeners stuffed appropriately down below preventing unwarranted pains inside causing further trauma alongside giving pores additional stimulation during the wash.

  1. Fill your sink with boiling water, transfer it to a clean container and cool until lukewarm temperature.

3.Place the showerhead nozzle onto the hot tap placing pre-washed and lubricated tip on said spout adequately restricting any tumbles out apart from inside you proceeding towards giving bowel muscles enough time for full relief all while waiting over toilet obliging impending enema routine.

4.Fill up water into rectum in slow increments (cautiously) before emptying throughout bowl; repeat process twice/thrice depending on personal preference and timing availability doing so until refreshed externally/upholding further digestion processes whilst smoothening oral metabolism competently although healthy diets/supplements should also be considered as primary options :).

Cleanup afterward is necessary but let’s save discussion about that for another article since we don’t want to spoil our funny, happy-go-lucky mood of learning something new – departing now towards one final homemade method!

The Shower Bottle Method

We’ve saved this unique solution for last—while likely not as successful at clearing out apparent blockages, this practice works best if mentioned issues aren’t absurdly adverse:


  1. A Large Plastic Water bottle (with cap attached)
  2. Boiling-distilled water (lukewarm)
    3.Spread Towel
    4.Lubricant (e.g. almond or coconut oil)


1.Begin by cleaning the plastic bottle letting it air dry ideally overnight although couple hours typically suffice.

2.Wash hands & apply an external lubricant around anus then infuse lukewarm/distilled water within the bottle excluding four-fifth dimension leaving only top area alongside tubing/cap ready without initial use at intervals except prepared already prior.

3.Tilt style opener downwards slightly pressing lightly incorporating steady movements till air bubbles shift then replace content gently holding upside down handily through evacuating contents quickly across towel prescience, leaving it inside for 3-4 minutes observing bowel movements’ initiation status.

How can you differ the effectiveness of homemade enemas as compared to commercial-grade ones/hospital-based treatments?

The answer is straightforward. However, this may vary depending on one’s personal tolerance and preferences. If your body adapts well with natural elements from almond/ coconut oil/enzyme-rich foods/do-it-yourself items or an at-home approach when treating digestive issues/not exploring further medical intervention than optimal results may await! Yet; consider consulting your doctor before giving any home remedies a try—just to be safe 🙂


In conclusion: Though enemas are certainly not everyone’s favourite topic, they are unavoidable tools during our battle against constipation/digestive restrictions that persist indefinitely abating overall wellbeing thus decreasing enjoyment opting by us in regular day-to-day activities.

As such, we hope this fun informative article helped acquaint readers with some hilarious ways to apprise themselves about approaches towards do-it-yourself enema plans without requiring a considerable amount of investment in equipment expenses!

Remember though always cross-check every resource beforehand to avoid damaging rectal walls/postponing treatment times till just too late—the word “proactive” should come into play keep overall health under check while still retaining happy-go-lucky attitudes while keeping things moving comfortably down under!

So long then– let’s say goodbye but never forget constipation is daunting indeed so rather than pushing yourself through discomfort make better decisions regarding routines/breaktimes whilst also trying being mindful throughout consumption patterns avoiding unknown/non-hygienic eateries filled fast food outlets (or places which seem too fishy) preferring instead eco-friendly organic choices reminiscent of nature doing its job diligently consequently showcasing beautiful outer existence!
