Like any new parents seeing your child in pain can be super stressful especially when you can’t seem to find a solution! We seem to have found the jackpot!
My 16 month old has been getting reoccurring ear infections since he was about 9 months old. We’ve tried the usual… take him to the doctor, get antibiotics, give him pain medication and allow him to rest. It was getting old and becoming repetitive.
I’m also not a big fan of prescription drugs and antibiotics and we were CONSTANTLY given these things though they obviously weren’t treating the cause of this issue but rather masking the symptoms or providing temporary relief.
We even tried the chiropractor! It provided temporary relief but that did not last.
So we began our research.
My husband and I are big supporters of home remedies and holistic approaches to health and we heard a lot of great things about garlic and olive oil as a solution for ear infections. We found a lot of research regarding the antibacterial and antiviral properties of garlic. *Note: Antibiotics don’t help if the ear infection is caused by a virus*
We first searched online for an oil including both and came across garlic mullein oil on Amazon. The reviews were all great, however the price was a little much for our small budget. We decided to call our local natural foods store and voila!
We began using this oil immediately after purchasing. We only paid 12 dollars!
We have been applying 2-3 drops in each ear daily for the past 3 days and we already see a HUGE difference in our sons behavior!
He doesn’t pick at his ears nearly as much, he is less fussy and he is eating normally again! We are still watching his behavior but we are already impressed with the changes we’ve seen so far.
We know there must be other parents out there struggling with the same issue and suggest visiting your local natural foods store to purchase this oil! It really is a life-saver!
