Home Remedy For Earaches

This is a simple home remedy for earaches that has helped me a great deal.

Garlic Oil

1 clove garlic, crushed
1 - 1 1/2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil

In a small bowl mix garlic and oil together. Let sit for a few minutes (3-5) to allow garlic to infuse the oil. With head tilted to one side put a few drops of the oil into the hurting ear. Make sure the oil trickles all the way down the ear canal. The oil trickling down may feel quite unnerving, but it usually will bring immediate relief when it reaches the ear drum. Put a piece of cotton ball or wadded up tissue into the ear to keep the oil from running out. I put this into my ear periodically when I have an earache throughout the day and especially at bedtime until my earache is gone.

I'll have to remember to give this a try if I or someone else in the family ever gets an earache. We usually use something like peroxide, but even that is not always helpful. Thanks for sharing!

I have never tried peroxide. I have heard of people using mullin oil with great success. Maybe someday I'll harvest mulling blossoms and make my own but in the mean time I'll stick with the garlic oil because it works so well for me.
