Lovely subject I know but excess ear wax can be a problem, especially if it turns into an ear infection. In one fell swoop, you can loosen and address infection simultaneously with trusty essential oils and something many of us already have in our pantry.
Did you know that earwax is a self-cleaning agent, with protective, lubricating and antibacterial properties? That's why tiny glands in the outer ear canal constantly pump it out under normal circumstances. In a perfect world, excess earwax travels slowly out of the ear canal, carrying dirt, dust and other small particles with it. Sometimes overzealous hygiene or even excessive use of ear plugs and headphones can mess up this natural process so be very wary about poking around with cotton swabs, bobby pins and other gadgets. Ear wax can actually build up and block part of the ear canal and then we have a problem, Houston.
Impacted earwax can cause hearing loss, ear infection, pressure, itching, ringing and discharge. Doctors and ear specialists are a bit baffled when it comes to recurring impaction but, some experts believe the problem could be due to an essential fatty acid deficiency. Supplementing with high-quality omega-3 like Krill oil might be just the ticket!
A tried and true home remedy for excess ear wax is the use of warmed olive oil in the ear canal. It softens the ceruman, allowing easier removal of excess ear wax. The softened wax comes out of the ear canal easily and can be wiped away with a soft cloth or tissue. Just know that initially, adding olive oil may feel like it's causing more blockage because the wax softens and expands inside the ear. By adding pure essential oils with anti-microbial properties to warmed olive oil you're enhancing everything! Whether you use a Cotton Ball Protocol or the drip method, you'll be warding off infection and, going to work on the ear wax in partnership with the olive oil with the gentle anti-microbial Ear Blend.
