Resolving earache- the unconventional way!
Anyone who has ever had earache knows how painful it is. Pain leads to extreme discomfort and temporary loss of hearing.
Luckily there are some natural alternatives that can really help with earaches. Onion and garlic are the best groceries to beat the earache. Here are some other natural remedies.
Natural Treatment for Ear Infection
A friend of mine, not so long ago shared with me this alternative way of dealing with pain in the ear. Just sprinkle little cinnamon in extra virgin olive oil (or some other vegetable oil, but olive oil is the best). Warm up the oil on the stove. Or simply place the olive oil and cinnamon in a tablespoon, holding it over the stove. When the oil is warm but not hot, remove it from the heat and let it cool down to body temperature. Strain it through a fine cloth and use the oil as ear drops. The effect is incredible.

2. Colloidal silver and essential oils
Another great earache remedy is colloidal silver. Various brands of colloidal silver can be found at the market. Search for a brand that has a higher concentration of silver. Colloidal silver can be warmed up and put directly into the ear, but it is even more effective if mixed with some essential oils. Lavender, tea tree and thyme essential oils are very effective with earache. Use one drop of essential oils over 10-20 drops of colloidal silver. Essential oils can also be diluted in olive oil (if colloidal silver is not available) for a similar effect. Like garlic and onions, those mixtures fight the infection and reduce inflammation.
Note: As is the case with all the preparations that are used for medical purposes, herbal cures also should be used very carefully, with expert advice and, of course, to a reasonable extent.
