Garlic Oil For Earaches
5 cloves of fresh garlic
¼ cup of organic, raw olive oil
To start, peel and crush the fresh cloves of garlic, place them in a small pan and cover them completely with the olive oil. You want the heat on the pan to be very low so that you only warm the olive oil and don’t cook the garlic cloves. If you have a small crockpot you can combine the oil and garlic and set the crockpot on high for 30 minutes, then lower the temperature.
Allow the mixture to sit for 30 minutes. The longer you let the mixture sit, the stronger the infusion will be. Strain just how much you need and allow the rest of the mixture to continue soaking overnight.
How To Use
First, test the temperature of the oil by placing a small drop on the inside of your wrist. Once you know that the oil is not too hot, fill the ear channel completely with the oil and place a clean piece of cotton in the ear to keep the oil from seeping out. Make sure to repeat for the other ear, as the infection can spread. Let the oil sit for at least 2-5 minutes.
