If you or your children suffer from ear infections and are constantly taking antibiotics for them. Learn the natural way to fight off an ear infection and skip the antibiotics. This recipe for a natural ear infection fighter is mainly garlic. It is made with an oil to act as a carrier.
The recipe comes from Scratch Mommy and she says ” garlic has antibacterial, antiviral, immune enhancing, anti-fungal, blood thinning, and cholesterol lowering effects.” With all of those good properties it sounds like it would be very good at getting rid of infection. If you have an earache as well my old standby is to put a damp clean wash cloth down inside a coffee mug. Then heat it in the microwave for a minute or two. Once the cloth is hot making sure it is pushed down in th mug lean the head to the side of the ear that is hurting and cup that ear with the coffee mug. The warm steam rising from the cloth into the ear will make the earache go away almost immediately. Not sure if it is from the change in pressure or the fact that the heat makes the blood flow better but it really does work and fast. If this is for your child be doubly sure the cloth is down in the mug far enough to not touch the ear and that it is not too hot. You want some heat but you don’t want to burn tiny ears.
