8 Essential Oils For Treating Otalgia Earaches, Pain, Infections & Wax Removal In Adults & Toddlers

8 Essential Oils For Treating Ear Aches. Oral antibiotics and ear drops are the most
effective treatment methods for ear aches. Here are some some essential oils for treating
ear aches at the comfort of your �home. Tea tree oil. Tea tree oil is an effective home remedy in
the treatment of several inflammatory conditions. Mixing a few drops of tea tree oil in a carrier
oil like olive oil or coconut oil, pouring the mixture into the affected ear, and tilting
the head for one minute with the affected ear facing up, may help in reducing pain. Mustard oil. Mustard oil has a wax-softening effect that
is important for treating ear aches caused by wax build-up. Alternately dripping a few drops of mustard
oil in the ears, one after the other, can help to loosen the wax in the ear and make
them fall off. Peppermint oil. Ear ache symptoms like itching and irritation
in the ear can be reduced by using peppermint oil. To make peppermint oil, crush some peppermint
leaves. Mix the crushed leaves with warm olive oil
and strain the mixture. Apply two drops of the mixture to the affected
ear two times daily until the ear ache is gone. Lavender oil. Essential oils like lavender oil can also
be used in ear ache treatment. The emollient effect of the oil, as well as
its antimicrobial and pain-relieving properties, is helpful in the treatment of ear aches. Placing a cotton ball soaked in lavender essential
oil at the ear opening and leaving for some time can help to reduce ear pain. Oregano oil. Oregano oil has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial
properties. Like tea tree oil, dilute the oregano oil
in olive oil and apply the mixture (in drops) on the outer ear canal. Thereafter, start massaging the ear until
the oil is absorbed. The analgesic property of oregano oil also
plays an important part here. Castor oil. Castor oil can help in the treatment of ear
aches. Castor oil has pain-relieving and wound-healing
properties that are necessary in such conditions. Applying a few drops of castor oil to the
affected ear and covering with cotton ball for about 5 minutes before removing will help
to alleviate the symptoms of the ear ache. This process should be done two times every
day until the symptoms subside. Coconut oil. Coconut oil contains several antioxidants
like lauric acid, which is responsible for the oil�s antimicrobial properties. Applying a few drops of virgin coconut oil
in the ear (affected by ear ache) and covering with a ball of cotton for about 15 minutes
will help to reduce the pain and any inflammation. One important thing though, ensure you allow
the oil to touch all parts of the inner ear by opening and closing the jaw several times. While many of the above-listed home remedies
have not been scientifically proven to be effective in treating ear ache and its symptoms,
several anecdotal reports testify of their effectiveness. Don’t forget to see your doctor for medical
advise. For More Research Based Home Remedies And
