Ear infections affect Americans every day. Before you go out and spend hundreds of dollars on doctor bills, try a home remedy that many have proven effective to cure the ear infections. Holistic approaches have been used for centuries to cure ailments. Why not use the expertise of home remedies to cure ear infections.
What causes Ear Infections?
Infections can be caused from bacteria, viruses or even fungi. Ear infections are often the cause of inflammation, pain and discomfort, itchiness, and discharge. When your ear hurts, everything seems to hurt causing our ears to become a focal point of our body when we have ear infections.
Tea Tee Oil for Ear Infection Cure
In case you haven’t heard, Tea Tree Oil can cure many different ailments including ear infections, scabies, lice, and many others. This is a wonderful product to have around the house just in case an ailment occurs. I also have Neem Oil; which is miracle oil. I add to just about any ailment solution.
What You Need:
Tea Tree Oil
Use a miniature bottle that you will be able to get oils safely out of. Pour at least 1-2 teaspoons of each of the oils. I use at least 3 tsp. of the Tea Tree Oil as it is a miracle oil. Place the bottle half way into warm water. This helps the oils warm. Now apply 1-2 drop of the oils inside the ear.
If you are dealing with extreme pain, take a small bowl of warm water. Now add a few drops of the Oil Mixture and mix thoroughly. Take a wash cloth, dip in the oil/water mixture, and dap onto your ear. You can compress wash cloth against your ear and neck. This can help ease the pain from the ear infection.
Ear Infection Salt Remedy
What You Need:
New or Old Clean Sock
Take a cup of salt and pour into a clean bowl. Place this into the microwave and heat for around one to two minutes. Once warm, pour salt from the bowl into a large clean sock. Now apply this to your ear. BE careful if the salt is very hot against the ear. You only want a warming effect. The heated salt will help relief the pain and irritation caused from the ear infection.
Relief of Ear infection Irritation
What You Will Need:
Warm Olive Oil
Take the wash cloth and dab into the warm olive oil. Now compress this into the ear gently. This can help decrease the irritation to the outer and inner ear.
Vinegar can get rid of pain and earwax.
Garlic Juice can do wonders for ear infections.
Hydrogen Peroxide can also help reduce ear infections. (Pour into ear and dab with cotton ball).
If you have a perforated ear drum, apply the oils to the outside of ear instead of the inside ear. Be smart about your ears. You know when you need to go to the doctor. If you can’t get the ear infection pain relieved, don’t be afraid to call the doctor. Home remedies are wonderful and are usually effective, but only you know how much pain you are in! What works for one person may or may not work for everyone. I believe in Holistic approaches before considering a doctor because I’ve found in my experience they are effective!
