Applications for Anal Fissures

If your symptoms are recurrent, or increases in severity, be sure to get it checked by a doctor.

Anal fissure is a small tear in the thin tissues that lines the anus. It could occur when you pass large or dry stools. You may feel a slight pain and observe a little blood when wiping down after your bowel movements.

An essential oil with healing and analgesic properties will help to treat and relieve the symptoms of anal fissures.

Here is how you can naturally treat anal fissures with essential oils.


Washing the Affected Area

First, prepare a small pail of warm water of about 1 to 2 litres. Add in 5 drops of lavender oil and 2 drops of lemon oil. Mix well and wash the affected area.


Preparing the Blend

Blend the essential oils in the following proportions

Essential Oil Amount
Lavender 3 drops
Chamomile roman 2 drops
Geranium 1 drops


Dilute with Carrier Oil

After blending together, dilute them according to the following proportions:

For every 10ml of carrier oil, add 6-10 drops of the blend, depending on the concentration that you prefer. Mix well.



After diluting with the carrier oil, apply gently around the anal area.


Other Effective / Alternative Essential Oils

You may also add a small amount of the following essential oils to the blend that could be helpful in treating this ailment:

eucalyptus radiata, thyme linalol, chamomile german, manuka, cypress, myrrh, mastic, fragonia


Important Notes

Essential oils are potent and powerful especially due to their concentration.

Be sure not to apply undiluted essential oils to your skin whenever applying topically, unless you are certain that it is safe to do so. Else, always dilute it in a carrier oil such as jojoba oil, castor oil, grapeseed oil, coconut oil, shea butter, olive oil or other carrier oils.

Also, make sure essential oils are safe to be ingested or applied on open wounds before doing so.

Some essential oils should not be used when pregnant or breast-feeding. Always check with your doctor when unsure. It is also good practice to do a skin patch test on your inner arm to ensure you do not have any reactions to the oils.
