How to make a pessary/suppository out of coconut, tea tree and lavender essential oils

Making pessaries or suppositories out of coconut with essential oils is really easy, and you don’t need any special or rare ingredients.

You can buy all you need a health-food store, online, or at a pharmacy/supermarket in most places.

Important notes on your vaginal ecosystem

These essential oil pessary treatments are designed for minor irritations, like a post-antibiotic yeast infection.

If you have a vaginal infection, please remember that some more serious conditions and infections mimic yeast infections and BV. If you aren’t sure what you have or your problem isn’t responding to your home treatments, please get tested.

If you’ve been there done that without relief, but you have a diagnosis, find a practitioner who can help.

This suppository treatment is not for chronic, complex, or unknown vaginal problems, but if it brings relief, it won’t hurt you.


  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 5 drops of lavender essential oil (100 per cent pure only)
  • 5 drops Australian tea tree oil (100 per cent pure only)


  1. Melt the coconut oil by placing the jar in a bowl or pot of hot water or running under a hot tap. You can also microwave. If you live in a hot place, it’s probably already liquid.
  2. Add 5 drops of tea tree and 5 drops of lavender essential oil to the melted coconut oil and mix well.
  3. Pour your mixture into your moulds – these reusable silicone pessary moulds are great, but you can also use a little tin-foil boat if you don’t have anything. Square ice cube trays are not great, except you can slice them up once they are cooled, as the pessaries will be solid.
  4. Put the mould into the freezer to harden.
  5. Or if you don’t need them immediately, leave in the fridge. They will cool a bit slower, but just as solidly. You don’t need to freeze them – this is just to get them solid.
  6. Use up to four times per day, keeping in mind that the bigger the mould, the bigger the mess when it all melts inside your vagina and drips out! Using a small tampon or a panty liner can solve this.
