Ear aches caused by an excess of wax build up can be cured with a few drops of olive oil

What You'll Need

  • Olive oil
  • Cotton pads or tissues (a pipette if possible)

What You'll Do

  • Step 1 - Tilt your head to one side so the effected ear is upward facing. Step 2 - Put a cotton pad or tissue below the ear to soak up any spillage
  • Step 3 - Gently pour about five drops of olive oil into the effected ear. Step 4 - Leave your head titled for a few seconds to stop the oil from dripping out.

This seems to always work! I heat the oil slightly so that it is warm (not hot!).
