My mom always used olive oil for our ear complaints and I have used it on my kids, works well. Editor's Note: DO NOT put ANY liquid in you ear if you think you may have a perforated eardrum.

Directions

  1. To clear stopped up ears: Put three drops of lukewarm olive oil in the affected ear.
  2. Lie for 5 mins on the opposite side, then turn over so that the olive oil can flow out again.
  3. For an earache: Soak a cotton pad in olive oil, then add 5 drops of lavender oil.
  4. Place it loosely in your outer ear until the pain abates.
