Mullein & Garlic for Earaches
Earaches come on suddenly at times, I know they have for me. So, let me suggest herbal ear drops that fight the infection AND work within seconds to stop the pain. One to three drops in the infected ear will calm any one suffering from an earache. Warming the herbal drops before putting in the ear may be more soothing especially for a child. So, how does it work?
Garlic is a natural antibiotic. No need for prescription antibiotics from your doctor when you use garlic. It works in the same way but does not destroy the good flora in your digestive tract like prescription antibiotics do which can lead to side effects such as stomach upset and diarrhea.
Two other main ingredients that your herbal ear drop supplement should contain are mullein and St John’s Wort; two powerful plants for pain relief in an infected ear.
Mullein is great for pain, swelling and inflammation.
St. John’s Wort, another great pain reliever, is also antiviral and antibacterial.
I recommend herbal eardrops from the following companies:
- Herb Pharm’s Mullein/Garlic Compound
- Gaia’s Ear Oil with Mullein and St. John’s Wort
- Electic’s Ear Drops
These all contain the three important herbs you should be looking for in herbal ear drops.
Keep this product in your medicine cabinet for summer months too when swimmer’s ear can become a problem.
