Supplies Needed to Make Homemade Ear Drops:
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Ear Bulb Syringe
How to Make Homemade Ear Drops:
- Crush a garlic clove with a knife and place it in about an ounce of extra virgin olive oil, let it sit for 10-15 minutes.
- Using the ear bulb syringe insert 2-3 drops of garlic oil in the infected ear and allow a few minutes to dry. This will provide you with antibacterial and antiviral relief in no time.
This works because Garlic has natural anti-bacterial properties which reduces the inflammation and also reduces the pain in the ear caused by the infection. It’s also great because you don’t have to worry about taking any medication- it’s all natural!
