Garlic is the best solution for either painful headache or earache. All you should do is to put a few drops of garlic oil on a cotton ball (or take a peeled clove of garlic), and gently place it in the opening of your ear, but be careful how you placed it, so it doesn’t fall out during the night.
You’ll feel a big relieve, once the heat sensation starts spreading through your ear. Leave the cotton ball (or garlic clove) in your ear for at least 30-35 minutes or longer, and if you want you can even leave it in overnight, which is the better choice.
Because of its anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties, garlic is perfect for these kind of pains. It kills the bacteria and germs in your inner ear which are causing the pain, and also its antiseptic properties reduce the risk of further or future infection. This one you probably didn’t know, but garlic is also anti-inflammatory and can work wonders at reducing the swelling and throbbing that accompanies ear aches.
Although we mention this as a last, that doesn’t mean that it’s least important. Eating garlic will give your immune system a boost because it’s packed with nutrients like Vitamins C and B6, fiber, potassium, and calcium. Put aside the meds and take some garlic that has been proven to help reduce the severity of symptoms associated with the flu and common cold, and many others health associated illnesses.
It’s not that important whether you place it in your ear, or you eat it, both ways can be an immense benefit to you!
