How To Make Effective Healing Oil to Treat Ear Infection

Ear infection, called also Otitis, is a general term for inflammation or infection of the ear. In middle ear infection the ear is infected or clogged with fluid behind the ear drum, which is normally air-filled space. Middle ear infections are one of the most common childhood problems and can be very painful.

The ear infection happens when germs like bacteria and viruses get inside the ear and cause trouble. If bacteria are causing the problem, the doctor might prescribe antibiotics, which usually clears up a bacterial infection, so you’ll feel better in a few days. But if it’s a viral infection, the situation is more complicated as antibiotics don’t work on viruses.

Here is a great herbal remedy for ear infections. It helps to eliminate the infection and thus relieves the pain. The oil made from mullein flowers works very well for ear infections, and garlic contains powerful aromatic compounds that have an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory action.

Garlic Mullein Oil to Treat Ear Infection

2-3 tbsp chopped garlic
2-3 tbsp mullein flowers
Extra virgin olive oil

Place the garlic and mullein flowers in a small saucepan and add just enough oil to cover the herbs. Warm for 20-30 minutes over very low heat. Strain well and store in tightly covered glass jar in the refrigerator.

How to use? warm the oil in a teaspoon help over a candle or stove-top burner. Warm only to body temperature (about room temperature). Use a dropper and apply 3-4 drops into the ear. Apply the warm oil every 30 minutes or as often as needed.

Garlic and mullein are versatile and effective herbs to treat various ailments. If you are interested in natural and herbal remedies, you can find more useful information in my e-book the Herbal Remedies Guide. This guide will teach you how to treat common ailments using herbs:

    is this safe for infants/toddlers?

    • Jenny says:

      I’ve checked in the internet to see if there are any safety concerns regarding mullein. Mullein is sometimes taken orally as a health supplement, and in this case WebMd website (which is a trusted website) says that there isn’t enough information to know if mullein is safe or what the possible side effects might be. But this is regarding taking it orally. I couldn’t find anything regarding topical use as in this case, but generally speaking it is considered to be a safe herb.

    try onion juice for earache. just grate/process an onion and collect a teaspoon of juice and gently pour it into the ear. I couldn’t believe it would work until I tried it.

    whats it look like the mullein flowers?

  8. Kellbell says:

    Couldn’t you use essential oils of garlic and mullein instead

    • Jenny says:

      No, don’t put essential oils into the ear itself. I’ve seen references that you can gently rub diluted essential oils around the outside of the ear and down along the lymph nodes on the side of the neck, or instead use a warm compress and place it over the ear. But all the references say that you never put essential oils directly into the ear.
