Our school nurse called me and said my 6 year old was in the office with ear ache which my children get every year. I ran to the store and bought a yellow onion and cooked in the microwave then squeezed out the juice and put about three drops in it and it took the pain away and she went back to class and never complained again. Her nurse was amazed by the remedy.

Yesterday morning my 3 year son woke up screaming that his ear hurt. I'm a firm believer in chiropractic but it was Sunday and had to find something else for him. I didn't want to take him to urgent care because I didn't want antibotics so I turned on my computer and went to earthclinic and searched ear infections. I tried the warm salt on a washcloth, microwaved it and put on his ear. I did this twice in one hour and he hasn't complained once. Thanks so much!

I have tried this ancient Ayurvedic remedy for ear-aches not just on myself but for my 10 year old daughter and it has worked....everytime!

Mix 3-4 drops of T-tree oil in 1/4 cup of sesame oil, mix well and keep aside in a small clean bottle for storage/future use. Add 2-4 drops of this oil mixture in the ear by a dropper... The pain and infection will be gone in a few hours. These two oils in combination form a natural antifungal, antibacterial and antiseptic compound.... no need to go to a doctor for antibiotics.
