A Natural and Soothing Method to Prevent and Treat Ear Infections

I had a client with a bad ear infection last week. I wanted to share a really simple home remedy that my mum used to do. You soak a cotton wall ball in some warm sesame or almond oil. Squeeze out a drop or two of the oil into your ear. (I used to have this done as a child with my head resting on my mum's lap). Then circle the ear around in a relaxing motion. The oil lubricates the ear and soaks up bacteria, the warmth frees up wax and the motion helps to improve ear function. You could do this weekly to keep the ears healthy and free from infection.
