Easing the Pain of an Ear Infection or Ear Ache

Easing the Pain of An Ear Infection or Ear Ache

Here is a remedy that has been passed down in my family for many generations.

Materials Needed:

  • 1 lavender scented candle
  • 1 medicine dropper
  • 2 small cotton balls
  • lighter/matches
  • lavender oil
  • spoon or very small saucer


Using lighter/matches, light the lavender scented candle and let burn for 1 minute. Place a small amount of lavender oil into the spoon or small saucer and hold over the flame. Do not hold oil in the flame. Heat for anywhere from 40 to 90 seconds. Use the medicine dropper to collect heated oil. Place a few drops into each ear and plug with cotton balls. Leave in for about a minute and the pain should start to fade if not disappear completely.

Well, there you have it. I hope that it helps others just as it has helped my family.
