With six children I have seen my fair share of earaches over the last 18 years of parenting.
We have used the heating pack.
We have used collodial silver in the ear.
We have used homeopathic ear tabs and drops.
We have given motrin or tylenol when a fever (101.0) was present at the same time.
The one thing we have never given is an antibiotic for an earache or ear infection.
Here is what has worked over and over again without fail!!!!
Some common uses of Melaleuca:
- Gum Disease
- Skin Healing
Here is how I create our homemade earache relief!
I use one of my 1/2 Oz Amber Glass Bottle with Glass Eye Dropper
- 10 drops of Shield Blend EO
- 10 drops of Melaluca EO
- 20 - 30 drops of fractioned coconut oil
- Allow oils to mix for a minute before placing in ear.
USE CODE: jillbewell for 10% of your order on Spark Naturals
*NOTE if the ear is infected it may burn just a bit so try one drop and wait a half hour. Our five year old is a champ with these drops and I can put two to three drops in at one time. I place a piece of a cotton ball in her ear after she lays on her side with ear up for a few minutes to keep the oils in her ear. If she is going to bed I keep the cotton ball in all night or until it falls out.
I also rub my (BE WELL BLEND) behind her ear and on her feet several times before bed.
Every time I use this combo our daughter wakes up the next day with her ear completely pain free and doesn’t complain again. Done! No antibiotics. No OTC medicines needed. Just a big smile on her face and her sweet voice letting me know, “my ear feels all better now mom, thank you!” Which is always music to my ears!
