Be sure to include the simple cotton ball as part of your fragrant pharmacy for issues like ear infections and Tinnitus, let me tell you why.  It's a simple and safe way to apply pure essential oils to the ear of little ones and adults alike allowing the vapor of the oils to safely penetrate deep into the ear and get to the issue.
Ear Infection
Kids are the most likely victim of an ear infection, in fact, 2 out of 3 colds will result in an ear infection. Why is that? Kids immune systems are less mature and their little ears don't drain as well as adults do. In the photo above notice the Eustachian tube, this connects the middle ear to the throat. Often when kids catch cold the Eustachian tube swells and blocks drainage creating a perfect breeding ground for virus or bacteria to thrive.
Let's cut to the chase!  Kids with ear episodes generally have multiple episodes and if treated over and over again with synthetic antibiotics their resistance to antibiotics builds and their immune system weakens creating a frustrating and damaging cycle of infection. Repeat ear infections can generate scar tissue that will eventually affect hearing and balance.
Cotton Ball Protocol #1
1 to 2 drops Basil on one half of a cotton ball.
Insert gently into the infected ear and leave in over night to let the vapor of the oil penetrate into the ear.  Pain relief should be almost immediate.
Basil:  anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-biotic, anti-spasmodic, decongestant.
Cotton Ball Protocol #2
1 drop Geranium + 1 drop Basil on half of a cotton ball.
Insert gently into the infected ear and in leave overnight to let the vapor of the oil penetrate into the ear.  Pain relief should be almost immediate.
Geranium:  analgesic, anti-bacterial, can reduce symptoms of Candida, stimulates lymphatic and circulatory systems (good for drainage), astringent.
Note:  If excess ear wax is a problem, 2 drops of Basil on a cotton ball overnight in the ear can help reduce wax buildup and keep ear infections at bay.  Start this protocol immediately if you suspect ear is tender at all.
Tinnitus is described as a ringing in the ears but it can be several different sounds like clicking, whistling or buzzing.  Tinnitus isn't a disease but a symptom of something underlying and most often related to getting older somehow.  The symptoms can be very mild or intense with or without dizziness.
Cotton Ball Protocol for Tinnitus
2 drops of Helichrysum on half of a cotton ball.
Insert gently into affected ears and leave in over night to let the vapor of the oil penetrate into the ear.  Helichrysum can be used during the day too as needed by adding a drop to a cotton ball and wiping inside the ear.
Helichrysum: Anti-inflammatory, nerve regeneration, analgesic, antifungal, aids blood circulation, reduces thrombosis.

You could use a bit of medical tape to hold it in. That’s what my mum did for my brother.

What about for babies? My sons first instinct would be to rip it out and put it in his mouth…

We’ve had great success with consistent use of pure Frankincense. One drop with a little carrier oil rubbed on front and back of ear and down each jawline. When my husband gets vertigo, I have him do this every hour if needed.

Great information, thank you for sharing. Do you know of any protocols for the ear to help with dizzy spells?

The same thing has been happening to me, so what I’ve been doing is I will google “campwander sinus bomb” (or whatever I’m looking for) and it will bring up lots of choices. I have noticed it on other blogs too, so I wonder if it’s my browser or something.
