Ear Ache Oil

This ear oil is fabulous and very simple, especially if you grow all the herbs listed yourself! It works really well when alternated with freshly squeezed onion juice.

Recipe

Place equal amounts of fresh mullein flower, fresh or dried calendula flower, fresh St. John’s Wort flower and fresh chopped garlic in a small jar. Cover with olive oil by an inch or two. Cover and set outside to solar infuse for 2-4 weeks or place in a small pot over very low heat for one hour or until fragrant, be careful not to burn. Strain and pour into dropper bottle. Label and date. Keep in the fridge and warm under hot water before use.  Place 2-3 drops in the ear 3 times a day, alternating with freshly grated onion juice. This has worked very well for my family.
