For an infection in the ear canal, I recommend 1 teaspoon of olive oil with 4 drops of myrrh essential oil mixed in. Put into ear canal with a medicine dropper. Use until infection is gone. Myrrh essential oil can be found at your local herb store for about $14 to $16 for a 1/8 oz. bottle. A bit expensive for a small bottle but it lasts a long time. Other essential oils can be used as well, such as tyme (previously mentioned) and frankenscense and maybe even lavender. Tea Tree is also an excellent oil to use (also previously mentioned). All essential oils must be used in a diluted form or else it could burn as they are very concentrated. This also applies to the vinegar that has been previously suggested. Believe it or not the veterinarians are using a solution of 2 percent acetic acid, 2 percent boric acid mixed in a 96 percent neutral carrier of some kind (my guess is distilled water). They call it F1/0 ear cleaner and was given to me by the vet to clear out an ear infection my cat had. The instructions was to use the solution twice a day for 2 weeks. They charge a ridiculous price for a 12 oz. bottle of this solution that can be made in my kitchen for far less money. Boric acid is generally found at the hardware store as a cheap ant and roach poison. While acetic acid is just another name for vinegar (for those of you who didn't know). You should be able to use this type of a solution in people as well. You can substitute baking soda for the boric acid if you don't want to use boric acid. You can also use lemon or lime juice in place of the vinegar. Just be sure you are diluting the acids down enough so it won't burn.

That is interesting that you say substitute baking soda for boric acid. The two together make carbonic acid in weak form. The common name for carbonic acid is battery acid. This is not for your ears. Remember that science experiment where you simulate a volcano? Put baking soda and vinegar together and they interact creating a big overflow. The combo is caustic and cant be diluted with water.

lol acetic acid and boric acid make battery acid, baking soda is a BASE, therefore COUNTERACTS acid. so mixing acetic acid and baking soda, not only fizzes a tonne, but creates a NEUTRAL. meaning, baking soda and vinegar will NOT treat an ear infection, and putting battery acid in your ear is just a fucking stupid idea

Captain Earhole

Dont mix baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) with any acid and put it in your ear. Baking soda is a base and will fizz like a bomb, so if it gets trapped against your eardrum could do untold damage.

Also the reaction will neutralise somewhat but the process produces unstable chemicals which might not be good for your health (no really, don't).
