Garlic Oil To Use For Earaches
By Kirsten Cowart
Garlic is one of my favorite ingredients that I use almost daily. Not only does it have an incredible flavor, but it also helps your immune system in priceless ways. Garlic is easy to grow and is so versatile, that it is used all over the world.
Garlic In Medicine
Along with being a great addition to cooking, garlic can also be made into an essential oil. It is PACKED with powerful ingredients such as vitamins A, B and C, phosphorus, magnesium, selenium, potassium and sulfur.
Garlic helps your body produce white blood cells, which is one of your body’s main defense mechanisms against immune threats such as colds, flus, infections, diseases and sore throats. It ultimately aids in digestion.
Garlic is a super antibiotic and can even tackle superbugs that have grown resistant to prescription antibiotics. Parasitic worms that are in both humans and animals have long been treated with garlic. Garlic can also help with circulatory issues by lowering your blood sugar levels and helping with type 2 diabetes.
Garlic is a spice and like other spices, it can warm the system if you have too much. People with stomach issues such as acid reflux need to be cautious. Make sure you have an alkaline meal or take a capful of apple cider vinegar that is diluted in a shot of water to help kill your acid reflux quickly and effectively.
How To Use Your New Oil
Homemade Garlic Earache oil
- 1-2 cloves of garlic, sliced and peeled
- 2 tbsp of olive oil
- Combine the garlic and olive oil in the top of a double boiler and allow to warm over low heat for 10-15 minutes, or until your oil smells strongly of garlic.
- Next you will need a stainless-steel strainer lined with cheesecloth to strain out all of the garlic from the oil. Ensure that you strain very well, leaving no garlic pieces, no matter how tiny they may be.
- Pour the strained oil into preferably a small glass dropper bottle and make sure to store in a cool pantry or closet, where you it be able to keep for several weeks (keeps longer if you refrigerate it, for at least several months).
Each time you have need for this oil, it needs to be warmed up; just place your dropper bottle into a pan of hot water until the oil is about the warmth of mother’s milk. Be sure the oil is warm and not hot. If you are in doubt, do a test drop in your own ear.
Dispense a dropperful of the now warm garlic oil down each ear. The ear canals are connected and the infection has a tendency to move back and forth, so always make sure to treat both ears. If possible, try to hold a warm, dry cloth over your ears after applying the oil and/or even gently massage around your ears.
You will want to repeat this technique every 30 minutes, or as needed until your pain levels subside.
