Garlic For Ear Infections
Garlic is a culinary delight in many dishes and has several benefits. The most well-known being its health benefits to your heart. There is also evidence to suggest that garlic may have antibacterial and antiviral properties that can help treat cholesterol, and blood pressure, guard against cancer, and help cure ear infections. Garlic contains a compound called allicin, which is the primary component in fresh-cut or crushed garlic.
Though it may seem silly, you can put an entire garlic clove in your ear to help relieve ear pain. Should the ear canal be too small, trim it how you need. You can also create an oil for a dropper. Peel a garlic clove and crush it, then add it to a small amount of oil and slowly warm and stir. Strain the oil and put a few drops into your ear. It’s important to let it sit and cool to room temperature before administering, as hot oil can cause a lot more damage than an ear infection.
