World's Best Earache Blend

World's Best Earache Blend

featured products

Today's post is simple because the subject is simple - a common ear ache.  When I say common, I mean that the infection hasn't reached the acute stage. This is the time to strike, at the onset of a fever or sore throat that often wants to join the party. For a long time, most doctors would prescribe antibiotics for kids and adults with ear infections but new studies show that it doesn't necessarily help and doctors are wising up.  Now the trending treatment is to let the ear infection run it's course.  I for one am more than happy that I have another alternative to that, my pure EOs. I like to add pure Lavender to the blend as it helps with drainage.  If the ear canal is congested or blocked in any way, Lavender is a good addition! Pure Melaleuca has strong anti-microbial properties and because there might be reduction in the lymphatic outflow from the eustachian tube, this can allow fluid to build up in the middle ear, making it an inviting environment for bacteria, virus and fungus, Melaleuca is the ticket! Pure Sweet Basil can boast of the same properties as Melaleuca but I like it's expectorant properties too. Please note:  Do not drip pure essential oils directly into the ear canal, topical application is all that's needed. 

World's Best Ear Ache Blend
Topical application of Lavender, Melaleuca and Basil with Fractionated Coconut Oil
Ingredients
  • 10 drops CW Lavender
  • 10 drops CW Melaleuca
  • 10 drops CW Sweet Basil
  • Organic Rosehip Seed Carrier Oil
  • 5 ml Roller Bottle
Instructions
  1. Add the essential oils to bottle first then top off with organic rosehip seed carrier oil. Tip upside down gently to blend. Using a cotton ball, roll the blend over a small enough piece of the cotton ball to saturate. Wipe the inside of ear, back of ear and down both jawlines with the Earache blend.
  2. Apply every 15 minutes if needed. Continue every 3 hrs as symptoms subside then 3x daily for 3 days.
  3. Diffuse if possible.

This protocol diluted is safe to use on toddlers, adults and even your dog (which I've done more than once), it's a gentle remedy but powerful especially when used in small amounts and often.  I make this blend very convenient to use often by adding it to a 5ml glass roller bottle with organic rosehip seed carrier oil.

Thanks Sarah!

Organic, cold pressed coconut oil is great, as is Almond Oil, Avocado Oil or any organic vegetable based oil.

Fractionated coconut oil has all of the fats spun out of it so it stays in a liquid state. It’s a nice carrier oil but actually, solid coconut oil is more beneficial with the good fats in tact!

I developed a sore throat two nights ago and woke up with pain in my ears yesterday morning. I found your Ear Ache blend yesterday afternoon (had been using plain basil or tea tree) and I have been applying every 3 hours as well as using the Sore Throat spray and Cold and Flu blend on my feet. I still have one little spot in the corner of my throat that hurts and though my ears still don’t feel normal, the sharp pain is gone. I will continue this protocol today and tomorrow. I’m not sure what is going on in my body but I am determined to knock it out with essential oils, lots of water and good rest. A big THANK YOU for your blog…. my go-to source for all things E.O.

We’ve used it successfully Beth. Just be sure to dilute the blend and do not drip into the ear canal. Put the blend of EOs and carrier oil on your fingertips and massage ear both inside and out every 3 hrs. 3x daily after symptoms subside for 3 more days.

Hi Rebecca, is this something I can use with my 5 month old? He’s on his second round on antibiotics since the beginning of December.

Bonnie, you could try Melaleuca in lieu of Basil.

Is there a substitute for Basil?? It’s one EO I don’t have. 4yr old complaining of pain behind ear and want to try this.
Thanks.
