Natural Earache And Ear Infection Remedy

earache remedyMy young daughter Athena was pulling at her ear, uncomfortable,  crying in pain.  It is so sad to see her upset, especially because she can’t communicate in words but it was pretty clear she had an earache. So I decided to whip us this garlic infused olive oil treatment that my mom used to use on me when I was a kid because it works and it is harmless.

I made this earache remedy up and applied it into Athena’s ear anal at night time, by the next morning she was back to her usual calm zen self. This WORKS EVERY TIME!

Garlic & Olive Oil Benefits-

Garlic is a natural and potent anti-inflammatory, anti-septic, anti-fungal and antibiotic–amazing!  And unlike other antibiotics, bacteria does not develop a resistance to it like other natural antibiotics [1]

Olive oil warmed up works to naturally coat and soothe the ear canal while reducing inflammation.

  1. Warm olive oil is an ancient remedy for earache. I have never heard of garlic being added. Just warm pure olive oil, put a couple of drops in the ear and then some cotton wool to keep the ear warm. If the pain continues go to the doctor.

  2. You can describe the noises as being; roaring, swishing,
    hissing, whooshing, ringing, ticking, clicking,
    buzzing, and so on. NSAIDS: Advil, Aleve, Motrin, and Nuprin are in a class of drugs known as Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs.
    Studies say that such attacks last close to two
    to 4 hours.

  3. I have used this recipe in the past and it works Great ! Garlic is amazing for its antibacterial properties. You can also put Mullin leaf in it too its also soothing. Natural remedies are where its at for sure.
