My Mother put warm olive oil in my ears when I was young to treat ear aches. It worked great. Put cotton in ear after olive oil to keep it in my ear. I also used it for my husband when he had ear aches. He swears by the remedy. It really works well. I am speaking of occasional ear aches. Not sure about on going ear aches or specific ailments of the ear. Not sure if it is the olive oil or the heat that makes it better, but whatever it is, it works.
My six year old woke up screaming and crying with an ear ache in the middle of the night. We have used H202 in the past but it did not work this time. So we tried the olive oil on a cotton ball and within a short while she was able to fall asleep and wake this morning feeling fine. Thanks for all the great tips on this site, absolutely love it!
Warmed olive oil helps relieves ear aches. My mom would always heat some olive oil, saturate a bit of cotton and stuff it in the ear. Don't pour the oil directly in, you could burn it. This remedy always worked for me.
