Until I began to study Ayurveda
, the Indian System of Medicine
, the only remedy I knew for cleaning out wax in the ear was a commercially-available mixture of mineral oils
Even nowadays, these oils rule the roost as far as ear wax is concerned. However, like everything else, the price of ear drops for wax removal has kept going up.
So I thought I should share with you a very effective home remedy described in Ayurveda. All you need is some fresh Coconut oil
and a few cloves of Garlic
Crush five unpeeled cloves of garlic
and add them to 30 ml Coconut oil
. Bring to boil
on a very low flame. Then remove from the flame, cover and keep for a few hours. Strain
this oil and preserve it in a small glass (not plastic, please!) bottle.
A few drops of this oil, instilled in the ear canal at bedtime for a few consecutive nights sovles the problem of wax very safely and effectively.
Garlic has wax-dissolving properties
. Being anti-fungal and anti-bacterial
in nature, it helps to keep the ear free from infection as well!
: This should not be used by a person who has previously had a middle ear infection, until at least two years have passed since the infection was cured.
