I’d like to share something that we keep around for earaches–garlic oil. When one of us has an earache, I insert a few drops into each ear and place a small amount of cotton to keep it from dripping. You can use this as often as needed, but we usually only do it 2-3 times a day.
Go ahead and put it in both ears, even if just one is hurting. You can also purchase this ready-made but it’s not hard to make.
To make your own you need:
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2-3 cloves of Garlic
Warm about a 1/2 cup of EVOO on low heat. Then add two or three crushed garlic cloves, cover and remove from heat. I let mine sit for awhile (probably a few hours). Then strain off the garlic pieces, bottle and store in the fridge until needed. Don’t forget to warm the oil to body temp before using.
If you’d prefer to purchase some, I have used “Herbs for kids: Willow and Garlic Ear Oil Drops” before with good results, too.
