Acute ear infections often cause sharp pain, discomfort and loss of the ability to sleep in children. Hopefully these tips will help many to get fast relief if your children get ear infection!
– Rub a few drops of Roman Chamomile and Helichrysum Essential Oils behind the ears and on the feet.
– Put onion compress on the ear. Sulfur from the onion steam kills the infection. Lightly sautéed 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick onion rings in olive oil then wrapped a few in a soft cloth and applied to one ear and then the other. Repeat several times a day.
– Prepare a steam inhalation with Eucalyptus Radiata and Thyme oils, 2 drops each. Bring a pot of water about the size of the face to a boil. Remove from heat and let cool so you can hold the face over it. Add 4 drops of essential oil blend to the water. Using a towel as a hood, breathe in the steam from the mixture for as long as it feels comfortable.
Repeat the treatment for several days.
