Heat a teaspoon of olive oil over a boiling kettle. Allow to cool slightly. Pour olive oil into ear (take care that it is not too hot!!) and plug up with some cotton wool. Lie on side with ear upwards for at least 10 minutes. Take cotton wool out and let ear drain.
Mix rubbing alchol and white vinegar in equal parts and use a dropper to completely fill the ear canal... wait 10-15 min. and drain ear.
use a vibrator. it is if you would buy the Eardoc. but every one has a vibrator at home.
simply put the vibrator behind the ear on the bone.
Ok, I know once you read it-you will think EW GROSS! I did too when I was younger, but after I realized it worked I was SOLD!
Human urine-caught mid-stream will ease the pain/cure an ear ache. This is a home rememdy that my mother's grandmother used on her and her siblings when they had earaches.
You catch your own or for an infant/toddler who's not potty trained use the parents urine caught in a disposable container (an old medicine cup works great!) and with a cut straw or disposable dropper put a few drops of the warm urine into the ear that hurts. The warmth soothes the pain and the ammonia in the urine kills the infection causing bacteria that is causing the pain.
It sounds gross but it works! Old country wives tales still work people!
The white vinegar trick really works!
I got sick recently, and while I had this cold, I also managed to get a really bad ear infection. My ear felt plugged up, and really painful deep down in the inner ear.
I tried storebought drops and everything, with little to no effect. I can't go to the doctor because I have no health insurance, and little money.
So I came to this site, and heard of people using vinegar, lemon juice, and other acids to mess with the Ph levels of the ear.
I dropped a mixture of vinegar and water into the affected ear, with some minor instant relief. Next morning, the pain was completely gone, and the plugged-up feeling is subsiding. It's cured!
Tried the vinegar 100%, tried hydrogen peroxide 100%, but I was still experiencing ridiculous pain from my ear infection. The pain was just overwhelming. I went to my chiropractor appointment and he recommended tea tree oil.
I hit the natural foods store, picked up 'Wally's Ear Oil' containing tea tree oil, garlic oil, etc. and three drops later I was blissfully asleep on the couch. 6 hours later and still no pain whatsoever.
Put a drop or two of goldenseal tincture (avail. at herbal stores) in the affected ear. Put a drop or two each of tea tree oil and lavender oil on a cotton ball and put the cotton ball in the ear. Leave overnight. Works for my preschooler!
Since I was small I got very bad ear infections from swimming and when I got a cold. No drops or nothing the docter prescribed worked. Then my Granddad told me to get a small piece off cotton whool and I had to sit next to him. He took a drag of his sigarette and blowed it into my ear and as soon as possible I had to put the cotton whool in my ear. It worked so great, I still use it until today. I even do it with my partner when he gets an infection.
During my 26 yrs of life i have had many ear aches, when i ws 15 i had a baby girl and her name is adriana then at the age of 19 i had a boy i named him gabriel.... anyways... what you do is you take a cotton ball... some oil (doesnt matter what kind olive oil doesnt matter) put a little bit of the oil on a spoon , turn on the stove, then let the oil warm up... when the oil is done... you will then take the cotton ball hold it with your thumb & pointer finger, dab the cotton ball with the oil dont use all of the oil, then blow on the cotton ball so that the oil wont burn the acheing ear, sleep with it on or put it on before school but dont take it out until the night time! weird but it works it grew in my family and i did to my kids! it works!
