7 Comments for the Ear Infections and Aches Home Remedy

Anonymous

Best home remedy I've ever used for ear ache/ear infections is eardrops about 4 drops Tea tree oil in 1/4 cup water. Tea tree oil is a natural antibiotic, antiviral, and antifungal so its good for LOTS of other stuff too! But, when you use these drops, shortly after you put them in there's even a cooling type feel in your ear that is just so relaxing also!

Word of caution: tea tree - or any other essential plant oil - is natural but it can be very toxic. It's all about the amount, the dosage level. The few drops diluted in a lot of water however is not toxic or dangerous and is instead therapeutic. Always be careful in the amount of essential oil used for remedies etc. Also, getting the undiluted oil on your skin can cause dermatitis and itching , redness etc in some people so be careful.

I had great success with using tea tree oil by itself, and applying it just inside the ear with a Q-tip. It hepled immediately with pain relief and dissipated the infection in 48 hours! Thanks for the suggestion, as I wouldn't have tried it otherwise and probably would have ended up at a doctor's office & on antibiotics.

I heard that tea tree oil can cause hearing loss if used in the ear. Does anyone know about this?

Try putting a few drops of tea tree oil on a cottonball, then placing the cottonball just inside the outer ear. Don't push in too far. Also apply lavender oil behind and below the ear, externally.

I tried this remedy and wound up in the hospital with anaphalactic shock from a sever allergic reaction as well as scarring in my ear! Doctor advises all patients to never put any essential oils, diluted or not, as your ear is too sensitive to handle the oil and can lead to scarring over time. If you choose this remedy, please make sure you test the diluted mixture on your arm first to make sure you have no allergic reaction before putting it in a very sensitive organ like the ear. PLEASE USE WITH CAUTION!
